Sport has an unparalleled power to unite people across all ages and backgrounds and we want to harness this energy to make the T20 World Cup a truly inclusive event.

From a home cook to one of the grand finalists of MasterChef Australia Season 13, Kishwar has had an inspiring journey on the show.

The 38-year-old printing business owner was born and brought up in Melbourne, Australia.

After completing her graduation in Australia, she pursued her post-graduation degree in Graphic Design from the University of the Arts in London. After a stint in Germany, she spent six years in Bangladesh establishing her business there. She came back to Melbourne in 2015.

Kishwar Chowdhury is close to her Bangladeshi heritage, which shows in her dishes. Married to her high-school sweetheart, Ehtesham, she has an 11-year-old son, Mikayle, and a four-year-old daughter, Seraphina. Her Bengali dishes like Hariyali chicken with an Australian twist, Bengali Khichuri with Begun Bharta and Bengali Patties impressed the judges on the show. Her ultimate dream is to write a cookbook with Bangladeshi food and flavours.
