[Comment from Shizuka Miyaji]
I am happy to be able to participate in FairBreak for the second year in a row. Of course, I want to play in a way that I can be satisfied with, but I also want to have fun and contribute to team “Spirit”‘s victory.
Last year, due to the spread of the new coronavirus infection, we had no choice but to prepare in Japan during the off-season. I belong to a club team in Christchurch, and I have been given one-on-one coaching in basic practice to make the most of my strengths, and I have been allowed to participate in many matches.
FairBreak for providing such a wonderful opportunity, Sano City for its constant support to play and popularize cricket in Japan, Cricket City Sano Supporter Club, Sano City Chamber of Commerce and Industry, and Japan Women’s National Team. We would like to thank our partner, Mitsui Knowledge Industry Co., Ltd.
