Dainik BhaskarFeb 28, 2020, 10:47 AM IST Sports Desk. The Indian women's cricket team has reached the semi-finals of the T20 World Cup. If anyone has received the highest compliment in this journey so far, then it is Shefali Verma, 16 years old from Haryana. Former captain Diana Idulji gets a glimpse of Virender Sehwag, former India team opener. At the same time, Sehwag himself has described Shefali as a rockstar. Shefali played a total of three matches so far in the Women's T20 World Cup. In two of these, she was adjudged the best player of the match.
Shefali has hit 8 sixes in three T20 World Cup matches. He has played a total of 17 T20 Internationals so far. His strike rate is 148 and is the best in the world.
'This girl can do wonders' On Thursday 27 February, Shefali smashed an innings of 46 off 34 balls against New Zealand. True, only Shefali could run in this match. The rest of the batsmen did nothing special. He also received the Woman of the Match award. Seeing Shefali's batting, former England captain Nasir Hussain said – She plays very seriously and can do wonders. Former captain of the Indian women's team Diana Idulji said, "Shefali has the power to bring people to the stadium to watch women's cricket. I do not want to compare him to anyone else. But, I would definitely say that she reminds me of Virender Sehwag. Aggressive sports will give a new direction to women's cricket. ”
Captain Harmanpreet Kaur and Smriti Mandhana's poor form for the Indian team in the Rockstar Shefaliwuman World Cup is a cause for trouble. But, Shefali's bat is going well. Sehwag is also the admirer of this player. Veeru tweeted after watching Shefali's innings against New Zealand on Thursday. Said, "Wow, brother. Wow." Shefali Verma is a rockstar. " Sachin Tendulkar also appreciated Shefali.

Practicing with the boys is 16 years old. Two years ago she used to practice with boys at a cricket academy in Rohtak. Her coach Ashwini Kumar says that on the nets she could easily play the balls coming at a speed of 130 kmph by Haryana fast bowler Ashish Hooda. I was very sure that Shefali would show a great game in the T20 World Cup.
