india chose the players who were most important to their under-19 team that won the 2023 U-19 Women’s World Cup in India. A team for the Emerging Women’s Asia Cup, which will be held June 12–21 in Hong Kong.
India won the title in South Africa, and Shweta Sehrawat was one of the main reasons why. She was named leader of the A team, which includes her U-19 teammates Soumya Tiwari, G Trisha, Titas Sadhu, Parshavi Chopra, and Mannat Kashyap.
The BCCI has also made sure that there is consistency by making Nooshin Al Khadeer, a former all-rounder, the head coach. In January, Khadeer was in charge of the backroom team for the Under-19 World Cup. In March, she was an assistant coach for the Gujarat Giants in the first Women’s Premier League.
At the World Cup, Sehrawat had the most runs, with 297 in seven innings. Chopra, who was one of the youngest players in the WPL at age 17, had the second most wickets, with 11 in six innings, with an average of 7.00.
Shreyanka Patil and Kanika Ahuja, who are both 20 years old, were also recognized for their work in the WPL. The two of them were some of the good things about Royal Challengers Bangalore, which came in fourth in the five-team league. Patil’s power in the lower order and her offspin in the last few overs were impressive, and Ahuja showed off her creative strokeplay and ability to hit hard.
Sadhu, who is highly ranked by Jhulan Goswami, will lead the pace attack along with Kashyap and Chandigarh’s Kashvee Gautam, who took 10 wickets in an innings with a hat-trick against Arunachal Pradesh in the Women’s Under-19 One Day Trophy in 2020.
India A is in Group A for the Emerging Women’s Asia Cup. On June 13, they will play the host team, Hong Kong, and then on June 15 and 17, they will play Thailand A and Pakistan A. Group B is made up of Bangladesh A, Sri Lanka A, Malaysia, and UAE. The top two teams in each group will move on to the next round.
