Shafali Verma becomes the youngest Indian to score International fifty

Cricket is a sport which is not defined by demographics, it is all about the class and caliber of a player regardless of the age. Shafali Verma, the Indian women team player, is making the headlines at a very young age. Shafali, who is only 15 years old, became the youngest Indian woman cricketer in the International arena.

She is having a time of her life in the West Indies as she managed to score two back-to-back half-centuries in the opening 2 T20I games. She scored 73 off just 49 balls in the 1st T20I match against the Windies and became the youngest Indian cricketer to score a half-century (15 years 285 days).

In the 2nd T20I game, she continued her good form and scored 69 off just 35 balls. Her stroke play was a treat to watch. She over-shadowed her partner Smriti Mandhana in the both games. This is a pride moment for the young woman cricketer as she achieved what no Indian could in the history of their cricket.
