Shafali Verma fulfills childhood dream of meeting Sachin Tendulkar

Shafali Verma will be in action at the 2020 ICC Women’s T20 World Cup as a Harmanpreet Kaur-led team India launch their bid for a first World Cup title.

Melbourne: Teenage sensation Shafali Verma fulfilled her childhood dream of meeting her idol, Sachin Tendulkar, when she caught up with the Master Blaster here in Australia. The 16-year-old clicked a picture with Sachin Tendulkar and uploaded it on her Instagram account with a heart-warming post.
“The reason I took up this game was because of Sachin sir. My whole family has not just idolized and but literally worshipped him. Today is a special day for me that I got to meet my childhood hero. It was a dream come true for me. 😇

On November 9, 2019, Shafali had broken Sachin Tendulkar’s long-standing record when she became the youngest Indian to slam a half-century in international cricket when she scored a belligerent 49-ball 73 against the West Indies.
