Young Shefali blasts her way to earn praise
ShafaliVerma’s 17-ball 39 helped India get off to a great start in their second World T20 encounter against Bangladesh in Perth. Batting at a strike-rate of over 200, the 16-year-old struck four sixes and two boundaries. Her destructive show with the bat fetched the 16-year-old plaudits from several cricket fans and former England skipper Nasser Hussain. Some even compared the teenage cricketer with former India opener VirenderSehwag, who also carried a similar stature in terms of smashing the ball all over the park.
