Final of the Under-19 Women’s T20 World Cup: India’s “birthday girl” Shafali Verma goes for the championship

On January 29, 2023, at Potchefstroom, South Africa, the first-ever ICC U-19 Women’s T20 World Cup final will pit India against England, and batting star Shafali Verma will try to make history.

Despite their success on the world stage, the Indian women’s cricket team has never claimed a World Cup title. The youthful batter, who has played in two World Cups and one Commonwealth Games final with the senior side, will try to bring home the elusive trophy.

The seniors have reached the World Cup final in three different forms, but each time they have left with a bitter taste in their mouth after losing to Australia by 98 runs in 2005, England by 9 runs in 2017, and Australia by 85 runs in the T20I final in 2020.
