Poonam made her international debut in April 2013, featuring in a T20 International against Bangladesh. Her initiation into the One Day International (ODI) format occurred in the same series. This versatile spinner played a pivotal role in the Indian team’s journey to the finals of the 2017 World Cup in West Indies.
Furthermore, her excellence on the field led to her inclusion in India’s squad for the 2018 Women’s World Twenty20. Poonam’s impressive performance with the ball that year earned her a well-deserved place among the top five in the women’s T20 International rankings.
