The modern era is a time where women are walking shoulder to shoulder with men and have outshined men in most of the fields. In all the walks of life, we are moving fearlessly and victoriously. Indian women’s Team is rising ahead and making India proud by all means.
Now the time has come where even the age is no bar. Very young girls are coming forward, breaking the stereotypes and getting all the success in their endeavours. One of the latest instances is a 15-year-old girl Shafali Verma making her place in the Indian Women’s T20 team to play against South Africa starting from 24th September and ending on 4th October.
Her career began at the age of 10. She stated that her father had been the biggest support. Like any other girl, she had to face a lot of harsh behaviour in the beginning. But her father’s constant support and her unbeatable determination made her fulfil all her dreams. According to her, “It was my father who trained me in the beginning. It was my dream as well as my father’s that I should play for India at the international stage”. She is from Haryana and played three seasons from Haryana in the women’s T20 challenge. What caught everyone’s eye was her knock of 34 off 31 balls for velocity in Jaipur.
She has proved to everyone that if you can dream it, you can achieve it as well. Only what is required is your continuous zeal and hard work. A tireless effort pays off in the best way, and you ultimately get what you deserve. She has also proved that age is no bar for anybody to achieve their goals. It is just a number. Furthermore, she has entered the Indian team as an when one of the best players Mithali Raj announced her retirement from T20, while she will still lead India in the ODI. So, let’s see whether Shafali can fill the void that has been created and whether she can stand up to the nation’s expectations.
