Experienced pacer Shikha Pandey on Monday said the Indian team management has given Shafali Verma the license to play fearless cricket as the teen sensation produced another explosive innings to set up a comfortable win against Bangladesh in the women's T20 World Cup.

While Shafali Verma played a huge role in India's victory against the Kiwis, Verma also shattered a Women's T20 World Cup record with her batting exploits. Her consistency and big-hitting prowess shone through, which has given India blazing starts upfront.

"The way the team almost closed out the game was fantastic, Amelia Kerr did a fantastic job to almost win it for us in the end". But there are some niggling issues that they would like to address before they enter the business end of the World Cup. Hopefully, as will knowing that they can only get better from here once the marquee names turn up, namely Harmanpreet and Mandhana at the top of the order.

India's star opener Smriti Mandhana says she feels relieved of pressure thanks to the emergence of teenage prodigy Shafali Verma.

"I used to score a lot of our runs in the last two of three years, especially in the Powerplay, but now with Shafali coming in, she's getting the runs in the way I do". NDTV reports that her 46-run knock off 34 balls earned her the title of Player of the Match. However, India struggled losing wickets in clumps.

Jemimah Rodrigues (10) then joined Shafali as India reached 75-2 in the first 10 overs. In walked an out-of-sorts Kaur.

According to Hindustan Times, Team India posted a total of 133/8 in 20 overs and managed to restrict the White Ferns by 4 runs. "Shafali is giving us a good start and the rest of us batters will take up responsibility", she said.

"It's a great feeling when your team performs day in day out", said skipper Harmanpreet Kaur, after India become the first team into the last four. There were some tough chances, but at this level we need to be taking those.

"We were a little bit timid in the first few games".

"We haven't asked her (Verma) to change anything", said Pandey. On a slow, sluggish Junction Oval track, India were packed with spinners, who quietly applied the choke.

But it was slim pickings outside of her glorious innings, with India fortunate New Zealand weren't more polished in the field.

The Indians are on a roll, having easily sealed their semifinal berth with wins over defending champions Australia, Bangladesh and New Zealand. She was later rewarded with the player of the match title for her efforts.
