In a match of the Women’s Premier League, Shafali Verma (84 runs in 45 balls, 10 fours and 4 sixes) wreaked havoc on her own country’s Asha Shobana. Playing for Delhi Capitals, Shafali hit two sixes and a four in a single over of Royal Challengers Bangalore bowler Asha at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai, while team captain Meg Lanning also hit a four while opening her arm. In this way 22 runs were scored in a single over.
In fact, on the very first ball of Asha’s 9th over, Shefali hit a six over the bowler with a straight drive. On the next ball, Shefali hit a four while taking a single off the third ball, gave strike to Meg Lanning. Now the Australian World Cup winning captain sent the ball over mid-on for 4 runs, while taking a single off the 5th ball. On the last ball, Shefali in her style hit a six over long on.
In this way, 22 runs were scored in a single over, while in the very next over, Shefali completed her half-century in 31 balls by taking a single. His quick batting was a sight to behold. This is the first match of the Under-19 World Cup winning captain Shefali and her team in the WPL. She also got to open for the first time with Meg, but seeing the combination between the two, it didn’t seem like it.
It is noteworthy that against Delhi Capitals, Royal Challengers Bangalore captain Smriti Mandhana won the toss and decided to bowl first. He believed that bowling first on this ground would be beneficial. Let us tell you that in the first match of the tournament, Mumbai Indians won against Gujarat Giants by a blistering 143 runs.
