In the Women’s Big Bash, Shefali Verma, who came on the field for the team of Sydney Sixers, could not show anything special with her bat in the first match, but India’s opener is getting a lot of applause from her fielding. Shefali showed the way to the pavilion by hitting Sutherland with a direct throw. The video of Shefali’s tremendous throw is becoming quite viral on social media. Shefali, however, could not perform much with the bat and after facing 10 balls was dismissed for just 8 runs.
Actually, in the sixth over of Melbourne Stars innings, Alyssa Parry bowled the ball and Villani tried to strike hard, but the ball went straight into the hands of Shefali Verma. Sutherland at the other end walked out of the crease to take a run and Shefali’s direct throw did not give her any chance to come back. Seeing the excellent fielding of Team India’s player, the commentators were also seen praising him. Due to rain, this match played between Melbourne Stars and Sydney was of 11 overs. Batting first, Melbourne team scored 99 runs for the loss of one wicket. In response, Sydney won the match with 4 balls to spare due to Alyssa Healy’s swashbuckling innings of 57 runs in 27 balls.
Shafali Verma’s performance in the recently played limited overs series against Australia was not very special and she scored just 86 runs in three ODIs. At the same time, the condition of this Indian opener in T20 was worse and she could score only 22 runs in 3 matches. In the test match, however, a half-century came off Shefali’s bat. Apart from Shefali, Smriti Mandhana, Harmanpreet Kaur, Richa Ghosh are also participating in this league.
