Shafali Verma fired with the bat when she took charge against Gujarat Giants in the ninth match of the ongoing Women’s Premier League, and took her side to a magnificent 10-wicket victory. Chasing the 106-run target, Verma notched up an unbeaten 76 off mere 28 deliveries while getting her half-century off just 19 balls in the game.
“I wasn’t in a hurry, but I was trying to give my best during the run chase. Now we can rest and enjoy ourselves. In the last game, I got out while playing the flick. So, I tried to play straight. I would like to thank Lanning for her advice. I want to work hard in the future and keep scoring and playing in the same way. Thanks to Meg and thanks to all my teammates and my family,” she told the tournament’s broadcasters.
Meg and I just kept helping each other and that helps a lot on the ground: Verma
“We were thinking of giving our best. We (me and Meg) knew we could not take this target lightly. We just kept helping each other and that helps a lot on the ground. The pitch was really nice to bat on. We’ll try to keep performing in the same manner in the upcoming games,” Shafali added.
