Veda Krishnamurthy broke into the senior state side at the age of 13 for she could throw herself around and that have Karnataka the edge over others in the fielding department. The doesn't come as a surprise for she was a double black belt when all of 12. At 18, Veda scored a half century on India debut in Derby and, admittedly, got complacent. Three years out of action and a job with Indian Railways far away from home, in Delhi, threw her out of her comfort zones and gave her the chance to introspect and improvise. Since the comeback, Veda has grabbed every opportunity to become an indispensable part of India's limited-overs side. A terrific fielder still, aggression is in Veda's genes. She'd often been criticised for throwing her starts away in one-day cricket but her all or nothing approach has done India more profit than harm. \"My teammates feel I am very Rohit Sharma-like. It's just about our body language I guess.\" For those who have seen her in action though would agree it is not just the body-language. At her belligerent best, Veda can be a threat to the best of the bowling attacks, and is widely pipped to finish amongst the best finishers India ever produced.
