The
Girls
in
Blue
deservingly
earned
this
distinction
as
they
are
being
led
by
former
world
number
one
T20I
batter
Shafali
Verma

who
led
the
team
by
example
against
UAE.

Having
been
put
in
to
bat
at
Willowmoore
Park
in
Benoni,
east
of
Johannesburg,
Indian
girls
posted
a
record
score
of
219/3
in
20
overs
and
became
the
first
team
to
do
so
in
the
tournament.

opening
stand
against

After
doing
the
damage
against
hosts,
South
Africa,
in
chasing
a
potentially
tricky
total
in
their
tournament
opener,
Indian
openers
again
set
a
blistering
tone
with
a
massive
first-wicket
partnership
of
111.

Verma’s
innings
came
to
an
end
for
78
off
34
balls
in
the
ninth
over
but
she
had
already
done
the
damage
by
then.
The
explosive
right-handed
batter
smashed
12
fours
and
4
sixes
in
her
imperious
knock
and
scored
at
a
strike
rate
of
229.41.

Verma
has
smashed
21
boundaries
and
five
sixes
in
two
innings
in
the
competition.

Meanwhile,
Sherawat

who
smashed
an
unbeaten
92
against
South
Africa
in
the
tournament
opener

slammed
her
second
consecutive
fifty
in
the
competition.

She
played
a
knock
of
74
off
39
balls
and
anchored
the
innings
for
her
side
after
being
put
in
to
bat
first.
Her
knock
featured
10
fours.
Sehrawat
has
already
hit
30
fours
in
the
tournament
but
is
yet
to
clear
the
ropes
in
her
unbeaten
166
runs.

Richa
Ghosh

another
rising
India
star

also
showed
her
big-hitting
prowess

and
smashed
29-ball
49.
The
wicketkeeper-batter

who
scored
at
a
strike
rate
of
168.97

hit
five
fours
and
two
sixes
in
her
innings.

On
a
day
of
carnage
for
the
bowlers’ economy
rates,
medium
pacer
Samaira
Dharnidharka’s
1/33
off
her
four
overs
was
the
nearest
to
reining
the
rampant
Indians
in.

The
UAE
threatened
to
respond
in
kind
when
it
was
their
turn
to
bat,
with
opener
Theerta
Satish
(16)
dusting
up
Shabnam
MD
for
four
fours
in
an
opening
over
which
would
go
for
17
runs.
But
the
moment
the
skipper
was
dismissed
off
the
fifth
ball
of
that
over,
it
was
all
downhill
for
the
UAE.

They
showed
resistance
by
not
getting
bundled
out
in
the
run
chase
of
220.
But
a
combination
of
accurate
bowling
by
India
and
scoreboard
pressure
meant
they
never
had
a
realistic
chance
of
winning.
Eventually,
UAE
could
only
muster
97
for
the
loss
of
5
wickets
in
20
overs.

Mahika
Gaur
(26)
and
Lavanya
Keny
(24)
were
the
top
scorers
for
UAE.
While
Titas
Sadhu
(1/14)
and
Mannat
Kashyap
(1/14)
were
the
pick
of
the
bowlers
for
India.
