The captain of the Indian team wants this potential player to enjoy playing instead of being under pressure. Verma, who is going to play her first international match in ODI, has become excessively comfortable in other formats. She already broke two world records including one of Sachin that he held for 30 years.
She became the youngest Indian who scored a half century outside the nation. Sachin was 16 years old when he made this record playing against pakistan while Shafali made this record in 15 years in St Lucia.
Shafali was praised by the former captain of Indian women team Daina Edulji. She said that Shafali will take the sport to another level. Diana also added that if Shafali would have made it to South Africa earlier this year there would have been a big difference by her presence.
Her coach Ashvini Kumar said that she has prepared for all formats. She knew she had to face tough bowlers in English conditions so she practiced for hours. The Ranji Trophy player Ashvini added that she was committed to her methods. She is equipped with determination. Her practice hours included confronting sharp bowlers.
Today Shafali is performing against England for her country and the whole team. It would be interesting to watch if Shafali can perform as everyone is hailing her. England is hosting the match as well. Although the match is happening in a used pitch, as announced by Heather Knight. That might affect the all-over performance of every player.
But the Indian captain Mithali Raj declared that they are going to achieve in England and they would do that. They do not care whether the pitch is used or not. They would try their best to get the best outcomes. It would be interesting to watch Shafali perform in England.
