Deepti Sharma’s Heroics with the Ball Propel India Women to T20I Series Victory

Deepti Sharma played a pivotal role in India Women’s triumph as they clinched the 3-match T20I series 2-0 against Bangladesh at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur. Her impressive figures of 3-12 from 4 overs earned her the well-deserved Player of the Match award in a low-scoring encounter.

After opting to bat first, the Indian batters struggled and could only post a modest total of 95-8 on the board. Sultana Khatun from the opposition bowlers wreaked havoc with figures of 3-21. However, India’s bowlers defended the total admirably, securing an 8-run victory to claim the series.

Speaking about her performance, Deepti Sharma highlighted the team’s strategy of adapting to the situation and bowling more dot balls on a helpful spinning track. She expressed her enjoyment of such conditions and emphasized the importance of playing with confidence and sticking to their process as a team. Deepti also expressed her desire to contribute with the bat whenever she gets the opportunity.

In the final over of the match, Bangladesh required 10 runs for victory, but Shafali Verma bowled exceptionally, conceding only one run and taking four wickets, including a run-out. Prior to that, Deepti, along with Minnu Mani, kept Bangladesh in check with disciplined bowling. The Bangladeshi captain, Nigar Sultana, posed a threat with her 38 runs off 55 balls, but she was ultimately stumped by Yastika Bhatia off Deepti’s bowling.

As India Women look ahead to the third and final match of the series, they will need to assess their batting performance, which was disappointing and nearly cost them the match.
