Team India’s senior team has always failed in ICC tournaments. But this time the women’s under-19 team is one step away from becoming the world champion. In the first Under-19 Women’s T20 World Cup being held in South Africa, the Indian women’s team led by Shefali Verma has reached the final and is one step away from becoming the champion. Team India, who defeated New Zealand in the first semi-final, is likely to face Australia in the finals. If Team India wins the World Cup, the name of 18-year-old Shweta Sehrawat from Delhi will change.
Team India will face New Zealand in the first semi-final match on Friday 27th January in Potchefstroom, South Africa. Team India, who bowled first in this, limited New Zealand to just 107 runs. After that they hit the target losing only 2 wickets. Opener Shweta Sehrawat scored 61 runs for India and became the top scorer.
In the semi-finals, even though veteran batsman Shefali Verma reached the pavilion early, Shweta poured in a flood of runs from the other end. The Under-19 Indian team completed the target in just 45 balls. Team India’s opener Shweta Sehrawat has been playing with the bat since the first match. In the first match against the hosts South Africa in the group stage, Shweta scored 92 runs off just 57 balls and played a vital role in the victory of the Indian team. Not only on safaris.. in the following matches too, Shweta scored 74 (not out), 31 (not out), 21, 13, 61 (not out). With this, Shveta, who has scored 292 runs in 6 matches, has hit 20 fours with a strike rate of 141.
Meanwhile, once Shweta was in doubt as to which one to choose between cricket and exams. But at that time NCA President VVS Laxman convinced her family and brought Shweta to Sibara. He taught the necessary skills in cricket. In a subsequent match, Shweta showed her talent by scoring a brilliant century.
