Cricketer Shafali Verma rewrote history on Sunday when the Under-19 Women's Cricket Team captained by her walked away with its first T20 World Cup.
It was both a personal and professional triumph for the 19-year-old from Rohtak, Haryana, who became the youngest Indian cricketer in 2021 to make a debut across formats.
Till Sunday, Indian women cricketers had not won a World Cup title in any format, though they had reached the finals on three occasions: the 2005 and 2017 Cricket World Cups in the 50-overs format, and the 2020 T20 World Cup. These outings involved the Senior Women's Cricket team.
