Cricket fans from around the world praised Pari Sharma’s batting technique and her footwork.
Last year, Shafali Verma, the Indian opening batsman made her debut for the country. Soon after her debut, Shafali Verma became a household name after breaking Indian batting legend Sachin Tendulkar’s record and became the youngest player to score a half-century in international cricket.
Shafali Verma was just a fifteen-year-old when she broke Sachin Tendulkar’s record. Verma achieved the feat in her fifth T20I for India against West Indies. During the match, Verma smashed 73 runs off just 49 balls which helped India win the game by 84 runs later.
