New Delhi: Every year in the Women’s Big Bash League of Australia (WBBL), the top women players from all over the world face each other from different teams. In this tournament, some players of the Indian women’s team are also ready to show their power.
Shefali and Radha ready to debut
Indian batting sensation Shefali Verma is set to make her debut for the two-time champion Sydney Sixers in the Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL). With this 17-year-old explosive batsman, discussions with the Indian spinner Radha Yadav are also continuing with the Sydney Sixers franchise.
A BCCI source told PTI-language, ‘Shefali is in agreement, it will be announced at the time of releasing the program of WBBL. While the Sydney Sixers’ conversation with Radha continues. Please tell that Shefali is still a minor, so her father will need to sign a consent form to play in the league.
Captain Harmanpreet is also a part of BBL
Apart from Shefali, Indian T20 captain Harmanpreet Kaur (Brisbane Heats) and all-rounder Veda Krishnamurthy (Hobart Hurricanes) are also associated with this league.
Shefali, ranked first in the International Cricket Council’s women’s T20 international rankings, will represent Birmingham Phoenix in the first season of ‘The Hundred’, a 100-ball domestic competition from the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) later this year. The Hundred was canceled last year due to the Covid-19 epidemic. This year, it will be held from July 21. The Hundred will be the first overseas tournament in short format for Shefali. He has scored 617 runs in 22 international matches with an impressive strikerate of 148.31.
