Shafali Verma scores consecutive boundary hits off Katherine Brunt’s bowling in 2nd T20I against England

by Ankita Mohanty

The second women’s T20I between India and England started with a fierce opening at County Ground on Sunday. In the beginning, India won the toss and decided to bowl first. India had an impressive start with the score reading 26/0 in 3 overs. However, things quickly went south with Katherine Brunt coming to bowl the 4th over of the innings.

After Smriti Mandhana took a single off the first delivery, Shafali Verma got the strike and wreaked havoc in Hove.

4, 4, 4, 4, 4 – 20 runs in 5 balls

Shafali had a fantastic inning. While facing one of the best bowlers in women’s cricket in the form of Katherine Brunt, the 17-year-old didn’t back down. She managed to slam the second ball of the over down to the mid-wicket region.

Verma emerged as a champion as slammed the next delivery over the head of the bowler and completed the hat-trick of boundaries creating immense pressure on the rival team.

Verma played an explosive 48-run knock of 38 deliveries before losing her wicket to 22-year-old Mady Villers. Safe to say, Shafali emerged as a true winner after hitting 8 boundaries and 1 six during her innings.
