Danielle Wyatt talks about the heartbreak in the WPL 2023

In the lead-up to the Women’s Premier League (WPL) 2024, cricketer Danielle Wyatt is gearing up to put last year’s disappointment behind her. Despite her stellar performances in international cricket, Wyatt faced a setback when she went unsold in the previous WPL auction. However, this year, Wyatt is approaching the tournament with a different mindset, focusing on gratitude rather than dwelling on past heartbreak.

“I had got my hopes up a lot, which I shouldn’t have done in hindsight,” Wyatt remarked, reflecting on the previous year’s auction. “I’d done well in international cricket. I was confident of being picked. But to not get a single bid was pretty heartbreaking.”

Wyatt’s journey to cricket stardom traces back to the historic 2005 Ashes series, where her passion for the sport was ignited. She vividly recalls being at Edgbaston with her father, witnessing the thrilling Test match that captivated her heart. Nearly two decades later, that summer remains etched in her memory as a pivotal moment that sparked her cricketing journey.

Despite the setback last year, Wyatt’s form remains formidable, as demonstrated by her recent 75-run knock against India at the Wankhede Stadium just a day before the WPL auction. This will be Wyatt’s second visit to India within two months, having participated in England’s Test and T20I series in December.

“I wasn’t watching when my name came up. Suddenly I get a series of messages from my friends over in the UK to say, ‘You’ve not been picked.’ I was just a bit embarrassed,” Wyatt recalled, highlighting the disappointment she felt last year. “But this time around, I’m focusing on gratitude and looking forward to representing UP Warriorz in the WPL 2024.”

Wyatt’s journey serves as an inspiration to many aspiring cricketers, showcasing resilience and determination in the face of adversity. As she prepares to take the field in the upcoming WPL season, Wyatt’s story reminds us of the highs and lows of professional sports and the importance of maintaining a positive mindset.

The Women’s Premier League 2024 promises to be an exciting event, with Wyatt eager to make her mark and leave a lasting impression on the tournament.
