LFYAA Players Get Letter From USA Cricket Captain

​​​​​​​LFYAA cricket players Marissa and Kayla Reiss received an exciting surprise in the mail last week - a letter from Team USA captain Sindhu Sriharsha. 

The US women's national side is in the UK for a World Cup qualifying tournament, and Sriharsha read poems that the sisters had written that were displayed on the walls of their school (George Cromwell ES) last spring. The poems were based on the theme "I Am" and for the girls, much of the poem centered on their dreams of playing cricket.

In her letter, Sriharsha passed on to Marissa and Kayla advice from cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar: "Before you lay foundation on the cricket field, there should be a solid foundation in your heart..."

Surely the hearts of these two future cricket greats were warmed with this wonderful gesture! 

Thanks Sindhu and Team USA!
