India Vs New Zealand U19 Wc
Indian girls have reached the semi-finals of the prestigious ICC Under-19 Women’s World Cup. They are two more steps away from winning the World Cup and creating history. In the first semi-final on Friday, Team India will face the strong New Zealand. On the other hand, whether it is cricket or hockey, the Kiwis team will give shocks to team India in any major tournament. And even with this match, will Team India’s head be changed? Will a win against the Kiwis qualify for the title fight? That will be clear in a few hours. Meanwhile, senior cricketers Shefali Verma and Richa Ghosh are playing in the Under-19 World Cup in Team India. Both are in excellent form. But Richa did not bat in many matches. But co-captain Shweta Sherawat’s pair with Shefali is scoring huge runs in the opening. In addition to this, Shefali has solid records in World Cup tournaments. Shefali scored 251 runs in all 9 matches in the tournament. The strike rate is over 140. White has scored 273 runs in 10 matches. Strike rate below 130 but average above 45. This pair’s presence at the crease will be crucial for a win against New Zealand.
Indian spinners are also showing their ability. Especially left-arm spinner Mannath Kashyap and leg-spinner Parshvi Chopra are tying up the opponents with their spin magic. Both of them played 8 matches and took 10 wickets in this tournament. Parshvi took 4 wickets for just 5 runs against Sri Lanka in the Super Six. Ahead of the semi-final, Indian captain Shefali Verma said, ‘We have reached the semi-final. We are very happy and excited. Mithali continues to be the brand ambassador for the U19 Women’s World Cup.
