Shafali Verma (Indian Women Cricketer): Boyfriend, Age, Height, Records, Controversies and More

Shafali Verma is India Women Cricket Team's latest sensation. Shafali recently made debut at the age of 15, becoming India’s youngest player (men or women). She broke Sachin's record to become the youngest Indian to register a half-century.

“To make papa proud when I start playing for India and, hopefully, he will be there for the first World Cup I play,” said Shafali when her career took off. And there she was, in no time, one of the highlights from recently concluded Women's T20 World Cup in Australia. Before she left for the tournament, Shafali made a promise to her father saying, ‘Papa, ik century toh lagaa ke aani hi hain [I must hit at least one century].'

“I used to score a lot of our runs in the last two or three years, especially in the powerplay, but now with Shafali coming in, she's getting the runs in the way I do. She's made a huge impact and the team has become more balanced thanks to her,” Smriti Mandhana on Shafali Verma.

How it all started for Shafali Verma

“When I first picked up the bat, I thought the only way to play was to whack the ball with zero technique. Since I was five-six, I had just been watching my brother bat and bowl legspin, or just used to be at his training sessions to collect the balls. When I actually started training, it felt different but it certainly felt good. Papa, too, started working very hard on me subah, shaam, raat tak – har time [day in and day out]. He made sure at practice that he never treated me like a ‘girl'. My hair makes me look like a boy anyway, so let me just put on a shirt and go play
