On Thursday, former Indian cricketer and batting coach, Sanjay Bangar praised the sensational opener, Shafali Verma for her amazing performance in T20 World Cup. At the present date, Indian batswoman has been flawless with her batting performance in the on-going ICC Women’s T20 World Cup. In addition, the 16 years old genius has also recently topped in the revised ICC T20I women’s rankings.
Bangar, who is also going to be playing at the Road Safety World Series for India Legends which will start on Saturday, said regarding the adroit strokes of Shafali by stating, “You clearly watch which areas a specific batsman/batter tends to score, anyone scoring through the off-side really well means that the person can score all around the park.” He added that is the elementary logic because to play through the off-side all you have to do is to get into “great positions and a lot of mechanics of batting have to be in sync to do that,”
“Shafali has been able to do that, and she scores all around the park” that is one excellence which many people don’t have,” he further added.
“It is wonderful that we have discovered such a talent and it has only taken the load off or provided a fresh viewpoint to how T20 needs to be played by women cricketers,” he said.
The right-handed batswoman has turned out to be the constant run-scorer in the Women’s T20 cricket. The extraordinary batter Shafali has been flawless and amazingly perfect with the bat against both, the pace as well as spinner attack.
On the other hand, Shafali has been able to find limitations even when they are batting against a strong contender such as Australia.
From the Indian side, the young woman cricketer has been the only one who has hit six as India Women’s cricket started the tournament. Shafali scored a spectacular 15-ball 29 covered with a total number of six boundaries.
After the amazing spirits by team India, the Harmanpreet Kaur-led team has finally made their entry into the grand finale of the ICC Women’s T20 world cup. The awaited summit clash is going to be played between India Women’s as well as Australia Women’s on March 8th.
Bangar further said that the women cricketers have grown much stronger as well as more fit than expected, which has then ultimately reflected in their fielding standards as well. “The BCCI has taken great effort in sort of streamlining women’s cricket in India.” The players, on the other hand, are also getting more specialization for the reason that, “they have access to all facilities; they have access to the NCA (Bengaluru) all the time,” he said.
In the meantime, Shafali has scored a total of 161 runs in the on-going tournament, while averaging more than 40 without even scoring a single half-century.
Meanwhile, Bangar who had earlier represented India continued to add that the squad depth of India has been one of the main reasons behind the T20 World Cup successful campaign of the team.
