India recently won the Women’s Under-19 T20 World Cup
The Indian team led by Shefali Verma defeated England in the final
A Delhi batsman in the Indian team caught everyone’s attention
New Delhi. The Women’s T20 World Cup is being played in South Africa. Earlier, the Under-19 World Cup was played here. India won the title by defeating England in the final. In this tournament, like captain Shefali Verma, another Indian batsman attracted everyone’s attention with her power hitting. The name of this batter was Shweta Sehrawat. Shweta was the top scorer of the World Cup. He scored 297 runs in the tournament at an average of 99 and a strike rate of 140. Seeing Shweta’s power hitting, everyone saw a glimpse of Virender Sehwag in her. The way Shefali is called Lady Sehwag because of her power hitting. Exactly the same thinking is about Shweta as well.
Even today, Shweta Sehrawat is being considered as the rising star of Indian women’s cricket. But in the beginning he also had to struggle a lot. Sometimes he and father Sanjay had to listen to taunts for playing cricket. But today they build bridges of praise. The good thing for Shweta was that the family never became an obstacle in her cricket. On the contrary, his father always pushed him forward. Before Shweta, her elder sister used to play cricket. But he left cricket to focus on studies.
Started playing cricket after seeing elder sister
It was father Sanjay who took Shweta Sehrawat to that cricket academy. Where his elder sister used to learn the tricks of fast bowling. Shweta had shown her talent at the age of 8. She then used to play cricket with the boys with a tennis ball. The coach of the academy was so impressed with Shweta’s game that at the same age he decided to train her with leather ball.
An innings by Harmanpreet Kaur impressed Shweta
Shweta is not only a cricketer but also a good player of volleyball, skating and badminton. The father had told in an interview that Shweta’s cricket love started in 2016, when she watched the Women’s T20 World match between India and Pakistan at Delhi’s Feroz Shah Kotla Ground (now Arun Jaitley Stadium). After this, he saw Harmanpreet Kaur’s innings of 171 runs in the semi-finals of the World Cup in 2017. After this Shweta did not look back and started following Smriti Mandhana, Harmanpreet Kaur and Virat Kohli.

After this Shweta did not look back. In the Under-19 T20 Challenger Trophy held in November last year, he scored 163 runs in four innings at a strike rate of 111.64. Before the U-19 World Cup, Shweta was made the captain of India during the five-match series against New Zealand. However, Shefali was given this responsibility in the World Cup and Shweta became her deputy. But in such a short time, Shweta has achieved a big position. Now it is not far for him to get a ticket for Team India and a big lottery in the IPL auction.
