India Women grabbed the eyeballs in the first encounter of the day by becoming the first team to qualify for the semi-final. Carrying on her sublime form at the top, Shafali Verma smashed a quick-fire 46-run knock to propel her side into the semi-finals of the tournament. New Zealand Women’s wickets kept tumbling at regular intervals but Amelia Kerr’s quick-fire knock at the end raise Kiwi’s hopes of making a comeback. However, they fell short of 4 runs as the Women in Blue continued their unbeaten run in the T20 World Cup.
Many cricketing stalwarts like Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag applauded India Women for their prolific form in the Women’s T20 World Cup. The Harmanpreet Kaur-led side has emerged as one of the frontrunners to clinch the coveted trophy. India Women stalwart Mithali Raj also heaped praise on Shafali Verma and the Women in Blue for their heroics.
Ahead of the much-awaited IPL 2020 season, most fans were expecting Kane Williamson to lead the side. However, the Orange Army will be led by David Warner in the upcoming edition of Indian Premier League. Sunrisers Hyderabad announced the news on Twitter. The southpaw has been a prominent figure in the IPL and has racked up 400+ runs in every IPL season since 2013.
Amid the ongoing Delhi riots which have been hogging headlines recently, former Pakistan cricketer Shahid Afridi expressed his concern regarding the same.

Absolutely heartbreaking watching all of the footage coming out from #Delhi, and with the inhumane treatment towards Muslims. Humanity should prevail over all else, irrespective of religion, caste or creed. Praying for better times all over the globe #HumanityAboveAll https://t.co/TwBhENpqSk
