Women’s U19 T20 World Cup 2023, IND vs ENG

Women’s U19 T20 World Cup 2023

A bunch of 16 teenage girls led by talented Shafali Verma on Sunday.29th January’2023 created history as the Indian Women’s team laid their hands on an ICC trophy for the first time ever. With the dominant seven wickets win over England, the Indian Women’s U19 squad managed to do what their seniors could not do by clearing the finals hurdle in an ICC event, securing a one-sided victory

India beat England in the first-ever ICC U-19 Women’s T20 World Cup final on Sunday. Chasing a meagre 69, India lost Shafali Verman and Shweta Sehrawat early. But G Trisha and Soumya Tiwari built a solid partnership to guide India home.

India bowled out England for a paltry 68 after England’s batting once again faltered in a crunch game. Titas Sadhu did the damage early on and picked up the in-form Liberty Heap in the first over and off-spinner Archana Devi also bowled well to dent England right at the start. The rest of the bowlers chipped in with regular breakthroughs as the England batting lineup had no answers.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi tweeted “Congratulation to the Indian Team for a special win at the ICC U19 T20 World cup. They have played excellent cricket and their success will inspire several upcoming cricketers. Best wishes to the team for their future endeavors.”

Congratulations, well done,” said Shaw after which the entire team cheered aloud for the women’s team in unison. Chasing a target of 69, India captain Shafali Verma started their world cup winning chase by smashing a beautiful four on Hannah Baker’s delivery

Captain Shafali Verma tweeted “The way all the girls are performing and backing each other, so happy. Incredible feeling. Thanks to the staff, the way they have been backing us every day and telling us that we are here for the cup and because of them we are here. All thanks to them. The players have been backing me a lot. Thanks to BCCI for giving me this beautiful team and really happy for winning the cup. She (Shweta Sherawat) has been excellent and has followed all the plans from the staff. Not just her, Archana, Soumya and I can’t really take the names but they all have been incredible. No, definitely not (when asked if this is the only tournament, she’s gonna pick up this season in South Africa).”
