Tarannum said, “I had lost hope. I began thinking this would not work out. And then my friends started texting me but I did not believe them. Then I spoke to my brother, who confirmed the news,” Tarannum said.

“For me, the biggest joy was that I was going to be playing for Gujarat Giants,” she again added. When she was asked what she is looking forward to, Tarannum said, “I am keen on working with Nooshin Al Khadeer. She is also an off-spinner like me but I never had the chance to work with her.”
