Shafali Verma has been the talk of the town during the ongoing Indian women's tour of England. After her heroic exploits in the one-off Test, the 17-year-old has been making some vital contributions with the bat at top of the order in white-ball cricket as well. With Team India relying heavily on the opening partnership between Mandhana and Verma, there is a lot of responsibility on the shoulders of the youngster.

However, despite the added pressure, Verma has not shied away from playing his natural game with an attacking mindset. Fans witnessed a perfect demonstration of the same when the right-handed batter took her revenge against Katherine Brunt for dismissing her in the 1st T20I. Shafali smashed five consecutive boundaries off the pacer during her blistering 48-run knock in the 2nd T20I on Sunday. Watch Here. 

Fans left in awe of the youngster

The netizens were absolutely impressed with Shafali Verma's fearless batting against some of the best bowlers in the world. While some fans claimed that she will be the reason many young fans will start getting attracted towards women's cricket, one user predicted that Shafali will score a T20I century in next one year. Some memes also started to float on the internet, drawing resemblance between Virender Sehwag and Shafali Verma because of their fearless approach.
