Sandhya hails from Tamdoli, a small village in Nagaur district, where the boys used to play cricket on the land near her house. When Sandhya was 4 years old, she often used to go to see the matches held here. After this, about 7 years ago, due to financial compulsions, Sandhya had to come to Hyderabad along with her family with her father Hanuman Gaura.

Sandhya’s father makes a living for himself and his family by driving a tempo in Hyderabad. After coming here, Sandhya, along with her brother, sometimes used to go for a walk in the tempo with her father, and on the way used to come to Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium and State Cricket Academy. Once or twice, she insisted that she also went here with her father to watch the IPL match. When she saw the IPL match here for the first time, Sandhya had also decided that now only cricket has to be played in such a ground.
