Founded by former Australian international and two-time World Cup winner Julia Price, USA captain Sindhu Sriharsha and teammate Uzma Iftikhar, and cricketing changemaker and Northern California player Aundria Mirabrishami, Aspire Cricket has pushed to pay forward their knowledge and expertise for aspiring cricketers of all ages and abilities.

David White, General Manager of the San Francisco Unicorns, said: “Aspire Cricket is making great strides in boosting the sustainability of women’s cricket in the US, and we look forward to working in partnership with them and assisting them however we can to push forward their causes of fostering cricketing communities and mentoring future generations of cricketers.”

“We can’t wait to work with the Unicorns in a partnership that will be a game-changer for the growth of women’s cricket in the Bay Area and beyond.”
