Shefali and Poonam's performance spectacular

In such a situation, these players have the last chance to get the rhythm before the semi-final match. Opener Shefali Verma has started well in all three matches. Leg-spinner Poonam Yadav is on top with 8 wickets. Sri Lanka on the other hand would like to repeat the 2014 World Cup performance. The team then defeated the Indian team by 22 runs. Captain Chamari Attapattu will have the most eyes on him.
Harmanpreet could not touch the double figures in three matches. Harmanpreet continues to perform poorly in this tournament. She could not even touch the figure of ten in three matches. He scored 2 against Australia in the first match. After this, she returned to the pavilion for 8 against Bangladesh and now 1 against New Zealand.
