Diana Fram Edulji (born January 26, 1956) is a former Indian women's Test cricketer. Born in Mumbai she was drawn to sports at an early age. She grew up playing cricket with a tennis ball in the railway colony where she lived. She then went on to play basketball and table tennis at the junior national level, before migrating to cricket. At a cricket camp hosted by former Test cricketer 'Lala Amarnath' she honed her skills. At that time women's cricket was becoming more popular in India. Diana then went on to play for the Railways and then the Indian national cricket team where she was a successful slow left-arm orthodox bowler. She played her first series in 1975. In 1978 she was made the captain of the team. With 120 wickets, she remains the highest wicket taker of the game.
