Shafali Verma shone yet again with a blistering 34-ball 47 after spinner Radha Yadav’s career-best 4/23 to power India to a seven-wicket victory over Sri Lanka in the Women’s T20 World Cup at Melbourne today.
Verma smashed seven fours and a six in her brisk knock as India completed the chase of 114 with 32 balls to spare and enter the semifinals with an all-win record.
Earlier, Radha tore apart the rival batting line up with a career-best four-wicket haul to help India restrict Sri Lanka to a modest 113 for nine.
Opting to bat, Sri Lanka were dealt an early blow when opener Umesha Thimashini was out for 2.
Skipper Atapattu who has shined throughout the tournament, continued her form hitting 33 runs with five fours and a six. She stitched a 30-run partnership with Harshitha Madavi.
