Not content with the U-19 T20 World Cup triumph, batting sensation Shafali Verma has already set her sights on replicating the success with the senior women’s team in less than two weeks’ time.
She will get her chance when the Women’s T20 World Cup gets underway from February 10 in South Africa, the same country where the country just won the inaugural U-19 world tournament.
Shafali, 19, has already established herself in India’s senior side and wants to make the visit to South Africa even more memorable with another silverware.
“No, the big one also,” Shafali said when asked if the U-19 trophy was the only one she was hoping to take back from South Africa.

“I am someone who focuses on the task at hand. When I entered the Under-19s, I only focused on winning the Under-19 Cup and we won that today [Sunday].
“I will look to take this winning confidence with me and win the senior World Cup. I will try and forget this and get involved with the senior setup and gel with the team and win the World Cup,” she was quoted as saying by the ICC.
India on Sunday won their maiden ICC title in women’s cricket as a bunch of supremely talented teenagers lifted the inaugural U-19 World Cup with a seven-wicket victory over England.
