The incident took place on the first delivery of the 10th over of India’s chase when Verma played a delivery from Sri Lanka spinner Shashikala Siriwardene from behind the wickets for a boundary. In what was an extremely slow delivery even for a spinner, Verma judged the pace of the ball perfectly and moved on the back foot to hit the ball through the leg-side.

Here is the video of the shot:

Opening the batting with Smriti Mandhana (17), Shafali played yet another match-winning knock as she was the highest run-score for India with 47 (34) with the help of seven fours and a six before getting out in the 11th over.
