India’s junior or senior women’s team had never won the World Cup title before. India’s senior team had to face defeat in the finals of the 2005 and 2017 Women’s Cricket World Cups. At the same time, India had to face defeat against Australia in the 2020 Women’s T20 World Cup final. Richa Ghosh and Shefali were also part of that T20 team.
The players have been backing me a lot: Shafali Verma
Shafali Verma said on the World Cup win, “The way all the girls are performing and backing each other, so happy. Incredible feeling. Thanks to the staff, the way they have been backing us every day and telling us that we are here for the cup and because of them we are here. All thanks to them. The players have been backing me a lot,” she said.
In terms of scoring the most runs in the tournament, Indian player Shweta topped the list. She scored 292 runs in 6 matches. During this, Shweta scored 3 half-centuries. She scored more than 90 runs in an inning.
Praising Shweta Sehrawat, Shefali said, “She (Shweta Sehrawat) has been excellent and has followed all the game plans. Not only her, everyone including Archana, Saumya showed a brilliant game”. They are all incredible. Shafali hopes that the Indian senior team will be successful in winning the T20 World Cup which is set to be played in South Africa only next month.
