India advanced to the final of the Women’s U19 Twenty20 World Cup thanks to a superb performance from Shweta Sehrawat

Opener Shweta Sherawat slammed an unbroken fifty after Parshavi Chopra’s triple strike as India secured a comprehensive eight-wicket win over New Zealand to sweep into the final of the inaugural Under-19 Women’s T20 World Cup here on Friday. The tournament was held in this location.

After India’s skipper Shafali Verma won the toss and opted to bowl in the first semifinal, India lowered New Zealand’s score to 107 for nine with the help of Parshavi (3/20), who led a disciplined bowling effort. New Zealand’s batsmen were all out.

The young leg-spinner, who was only 16 years old, took three wickets in a row, which resulted in New Zealand’s batting line-up being reduced to 74 runs for five in the thirteenth over.

Additionally, one wicket was taken by Titas Sadhu, Mannat Kashyap, Shafali, and Archana Devi respectively.

Despite having a difficult time scoring runs at the Senwes Park, New Zealand’s Georgia Plimmer (35), Isabella Gaze (26), Izzy Sharp (13), and Kayley Knight (12) all reached double digits.

After Sehrawat struck a brilliant 45-ball unconquered knock that was peppered with 10 knocks to the fence, the women in blue were able to reach their target of 108 with ease and win the match.

After the early departure of Shafali (10), who could not live up to the expectations set for her in the competition, Sehrawat and Soumya Tiwari (22) added 62 runs to get them to the point where they were on the verge of winning.

The work was then finished off by Sehrawat and Gongadi Trisha (5), with the former bringing up the winning runs with a four off of Browning as India scored 110 for 2 in 14.2 overs.

Due to the fact that she took three wickets, Parshavi was awarded the honour of Player of the Match.

The winner of the other semifinal, which will take place between England and Australia, will play India.

Georgia Plimmer scored 35 runs for the New Zealand Women’s team as they scored 107 for 9 in their allotted 20 overs (Parshavi Chopra took 3/20).

Shweta Sherawat scored 61 runs for the Indian women’s team as they reached 110 for 2 after 14.2 overs. Anna Browning had 2/18 wickets.
