Women Redefining the Standards of International Women’s Cricket

Women’s cricket has been on a constant rise from the past few years, all credits to the players who put in lots of efforts to make the game interesting and entertaining. There has always been a popularity difference between men’s cricket and women’s cricket. However, off-late things seem to have taken a U-turn and the latter attracting its fair share of popularity. 

People in India have started following the Women’s cricket recently, and as they say, “it is because of the players who play.” Thus, today we take out a moment to acknowledge the efforts of female players who have been redefining the standards of international women’ cricket since long.

Shafali Verma

One of the prominent players from the recently concluded T20 women’s world cup, this 16-year-old champ from Haryana has contributed big time to the popularity of women’s cricket. Her fearless gameplay is one of the key reasons behind her big liking across the nation. She has brilliant timing and is known for hitting big shots easily. She ended her T20 Women’s world cup campaign as the player with the best batting strike rate. Her performance in the forthcoming matches of team India will definitely attract a lot of attention.
