18-year-old Shweta Sehrawat grabbed everyone’s attention by scoring 92 runs off 57 balls in this match. 20 consecutive fours in her lightning innings can be understood as to how much she was fired up against the safari bowlers.
Team India’s young cricketer Shweta Sehrawat became an overnight star with just one innings. The Indian women’s team faced the host team on Saturday as part of the first Under-19 Women’s T20 World Cup being held in South Africa. In this match, the Indian girls broke the target of 167 runs set by Safaris with three overs remaining. Shweta Sehrawat grabbed everyone’s attention by scoring 92 runs in 57 balls in this match. 20 consecutive fours in her lightning innings can be understood as to how much she was fired up against the safari bowlers. It was because of her innings that Team India got off to a flying start in the prestigious tournament. White’s brilliant innings that crushed the South African bowlers was showered with praise. But behind Shweta’s success is the efforts of our Hyderabadi player and former cricketer of Team India VVS Laxman. That is..about 7 months ago..that is, in May last year, VVS Laxman, who is the chief of the National Cricket Academy, received a letter. The letter was written by none other than Shweta we are talking about now.
With sister kit..
Shweta said in this letter that she could not participate in the under-19 women’s training camp because she had her 12th class exams. But VVS who had already heard about the talent of this young cricketer politely refused this request. She wrote to her father Sanjay Sehrawat to come to the training camp for at least a few days. With this, Shweta June immediately joined the training camp. She practiced as expected. In the last match, she scored a century for the NCA Zonal team and also took wickets. She scored 2 more centuries in the last 6 matches. And 18-year-old Shweta’s father used to take his eldest daughter Swathi to the cricket club only. She was told to stay close to home because of cricket at a young age. But once Shweta went to the cricket academy where her sister was training. Aadi Balura Academy. One of the coaches there asked Shweta to bat. That’s why the academy players caught everyone’s attention by playing huge shots in their bowling. Her sister was shocked to see this. The next day she brought her cricket kit and handed it over to Shweta. Thus began his journey.
What a game of cricket played by our young women at the #U19WorldCup. An amazing chase and fine innings by Shweta Sehrawat as #TeamIndia started the #U19WorldCup with a massive victory. Congratulations, ladies! @BCCIWomen pic.twitter.com/o4sLW9ojDz
