Opener Shafali Verma became the youngest Indian cricketer to debut in all formats on Sunday after being selected for the first ODI against England Women here.
On her ODI debut, Verma scored 15 points on 14 balls before being fired by Katherine Brunt.
The Haryana girl took 17 years and 150 days to debut in all formats, making her the fifth youngest female cricketer on the list, led by Afghanistan’s Mujeeb Ur Rahman.
Rahman made her all-format debut at 17 years and 78 days, followed by England’s Sarah Taylor (17 years 86 days), Australia’s Ellyse Perry (17 years 104 days) and Pakistani Mohammad Amir (17 years 108 days) ).
Verma had scored 96 and 63 on his dream debut in the one-off test against England which ended in a sensational draw last week. She was the youngest hitter to score two fifties on her debut in the women’s test.
Verma has scored 617 points with three fifties in the 22 T20Is she has played so far since her debut in September 2019.
