India women team’s teen opener Shafali Verma is all set to feature in inaugural The Hundred cricket tournament in the UK as she will replace New Zealand’s Sophie Devine. The world’s best T20 batswoman will feature in the competition for Birmingham Phoenix and will be the fifth Indian to feature in the competition.

Shafali will reunite with her Sydney Sixers coach Ben Sawyer, and her stint in England promises to be a significant learning curve for her. Speaking to ANI, a source close to the development said:

“It is a delightful news not just for Shafali but for Indian women’s cricket that there will be five Indian players in the inaugural edition of The Hundred. She will re-unite with her Sydney Sixers coach Ben Sawyer and the experience should help her grow further in what has already been a very positive road forward for the youngster,” 

Opener Smriti Mandhana, T20 captain Harmanpreet Kaur, Jemimah Rodrigues, and all-rounder Deepti Sharma are the four other Indian women cricketers selected for the Hundred cricket tournament.
