Shafali Verma's First Century: Lady Sehwag's Record Rain in Chennai 


India Women vs South Africa Women, One-off Test: Dynamic Opener of India, Shafali Verma, left everybody in a tizzy with a fifty-plus score against the South African women in the one-off Test. Her commanding partnership with another dashing opener, Smriti Mandhana—after seeing out openers Deepti Sharma and Taniya Bhatia early in their innings—must certainly have built the road to victory for the visiting side. She reached her century off just 113 balls, hitting 15 fours and 2 sixes in total.

On the opening day of the one-off Test match against the South African Women’s cricket team, India’s opener Shafali Verma was rampant and scored a century. She did so in just 113 balls to bag her maiden Test century and, in many ways, leave her enigmatic mark on the game.

Despite it being a Test match, Shafali scored a century in 113 balls while Mandhana reached her century in just 122 balls.

In this innings also, the two players hit several fences. The South African captain, Lara Wolvaardt, experimented with six bowlers, but none of them could take a wicket. At the time of filing this report, after 51 overs, Shafali Verma was playing at the crease with 139 runs, and Smriti Mandhana had scored 142 runs.

### Indian Women Dominated in the ODI Series Too:

The series against South Africa turned one-sided as the Indian women, under the captaincy of Harmanpreet Kaur, clean-swept the three-match ODI series against South Africa. Smriti Mandhana scored two centuries in this series. The team won the toss and opted to bat first, getting off to a fantastic start with Shafali and Mandhana. Both players completed their half-centuries before lunch and took the team’s score to 135 without loss.

The good batting continued even after the lunch break. Shafali converted her half-century into a century.

### Shafali Verma’s Test Career:

She has played 5 matches so far, accumulated 426* runs in 9 innings at an average of 52.75 with a strike rate of 66.14 balled faced.
