IND-WU19 vs UAE-WU19 Match highlights:

Invited to bat, Shafali and Sehrawat put up a 111-run stand for the first wicket. Shafali has already participated in nearly 70 international games for the senior team, including 51 T20Is.

After playing two dots, Sehrawat made her intentions clear with hitting three boundaries to score 12 runs from the first over.

In the subsequent over, Shafali continued the trend by hitting three fours as well. In the fifth over, the 18-year-old scored the first maximum of the Indian innings.

Shafali was the aggressor since she played with the opposition and pushed limits during the partnership. She rounded up to fifty with a four in style.

In her ferocious 34-ball innings, Shafali sent the ball to the fence 12 times and over it four times, making the UAE bowlers look helpless. Shafali’s blistering knock came to an end when she was caught at long-off after smashing three sixes and a four in the course of five balls.

Sehrawat, who finished the last game unbeaten on 92, excelled in the sheet anchor position. She raised her second consecutive half-century and appeared completely in charge.

The wicketkeeper batter Richa Ghosh also joined the party and played a quick-fire 29-ball 49 to help India reach 219-run mark.

Sehrawat remained the top-scorer for India with unbeaten 74 off 49.

IND-WU19 vs UAE-W19 highlights: UAE to chase 220 in 20 overs

Theertha Satish hit the boundary four times in the first over as the UAE openers appeared up to the challenge of chasing a 200-plus goal.

However, Shabnam MD removed her in the fifth ball, putting an end to the charge. Lavanya Keny, another starter, delivered a laboriously slow 54-ball 24 but UAE never seemed to be in the game.

India has secured the top spot in Group D with the victory.
