Alana King excited about playing in India
December 6, 2022 / 10:39 pm
Australia’s newest spin sensation Alana King is relishing the prospect of bowling in front of extended family as she prepares to play her first international game in India.
King’s parents Leroy and Sharon were born in Chennai before moving to Melbourne before Alana was born.
The 27-year-old has visited the country on multiple family trips, including most recently in 2016 when she met up with several cousins and family friends.
Part of that group will now likely be there in Mumbai, with all five of Australia’s T20 internationals against the hosts to be played in the city.
“A few family friends might be making the trip,” King told AAP.
“There are a few in Mumbai. Hopefully I get to see them and they get to see me play in the flesh. That will be cool.”
