Indian cricketer Priya Punia signs with Fast&Up

Thursday - October 17, 2019 4:48 pm , Category : SPORTS
Bengaluru, Oct 17 (IANS) It was a dream come true for Priya Punia as she made her ODI debut earlier this month against South Africa by scoring an unbeaten 75 to power her team to victory. Priya has now signed up with Fast&Up, Indias leading sports and active nutrition brand.
The 23-year-old made a statement with her finishing skills and an impressive 83-run stand for the first-wicket. She joined an elite list of Indian women cricketers who have scored a half-century in their debut which include Mithali Raj, Veda Krishnamurthy, Anju Jain, Karuna Jain. For her heroics in her first ODI Priya was awarded the player of the match award. The cricketer made her international debut against New Zealand in a T20I earlier this year.
The Jaipur-born cricketer said she was a little nervous at the beginning as there was a bit of pressure to do well.
"It was my ODI debut so I was obviously a bit nervous. I was playing slowly at the start of my innings because I was taking time to get set in the middle. After my partner got out I had to maintain the run rate and I was ready to start playing my shots by then. That is what I did. I'm happy that I performed well during my debut and that I was there till the last and also that my team won. It was even better because my father was there and it was a great experience," said Priya.
The cricketer also expressed delight at associating with Fast&Up and said: "The variety of products that the brand offers addresses different issues for various athletes. The best part is it also tastes good. I hope the Fast&Up research and development team continue working on new products that will help boost recovery of athletes like us."
Fast&Up is in partnership with over 100 Indian athletes which include Indian cricketer Mayank Agarwal, India's highest ranked table tennis player Sathiyan Gnanasekaran and footballer Iain Hume.
