The franchise, ultimately, insisted that I get myself assessed domestically in Canada, wherein I am presently based, notwithstanding clinical clearance being granted as these days as February 20th via my treating doctor, Dr lan Lewis, a replica of which were offered to Giants.”

“To my shock, I changed into then forwarded email correspondence from the Giants’ physiotherapist, that blanketed the following demand “Deandra Dottin is precisely cautioned to publish her fitness report at the side of the current test with the aid of 26/02/2023. She might be deemed not worthy for T20 matches in the WPL if she doesn’t comply. This request become sent on Saturday twenty fifth February with the closing date supplied being tomorrow – Sunday – making it close to not possible to administer all stipulated medical exams, in particular over a weekend.”On Sunday, 26th February, I obtained some other electronic mail from a senior manager at Adani Sportsline (the sports arm of Adani Group) which said that I become considered an critical part of the team and that I ‘keep a stable position to play’, but, they would require me to produce the new test and reports with the aid of March 1st. Whilst I was trying my utmost to set up an expedited CT scan according with the numerous deadlines I was being served, I received but every other electronic mail the next day (Monday, twenty seventh February), this time from the Head of Adani Sportsline, declaring that they were unable to locate me a timely appointment at a non-public health center from their cease and they could, for this reason, formally be searching for to update me within the League.”

“The Giants’ 2d public announcement regarding my exclusion – published on March 5th – in particular said the following: ‘unfortunately, we were not able to acquire a clinical clearance before the defined closing date for this season, such clearances are a demand of all players participating within the WPL’.
