Mumbai all-rounder Hurley Gala, 16, gave her dad Tanmay a special gift for his 42nd birthday on Monday—a telephone call to inform him about her selection in the Shafali Verma-led Indian team—for the U-19 Women’s T20 World Cup.


The women’s selection committee chaired by Neetu David picked the team for the first U-19 women’s T20 World Cup to be held in South Africa from January 14, as well as for the bilateral T20 series against the Proteas U-19 side beginning December 17. The U-19 women’s World Cup will feature 16 teams with India placed in Group D alongside SA, UAE and Scotland.

Pacer Hurley has claimed seven wickets from three games in the five-match T20 series against New Zealand U-19 in Mumbai. “I am expecting a match-winning performance in each and every match of the World Cup. She was very active and a good athlete right from her childhood days. She accompanied me for a box cricket tournament in Andheri when she was just 10 or 11 and started playing extraordinarily. She hasn’t looked back since,” Gala remarked.
