Much talked about teen-sensation, Shafali Verma, finally lived up to the high-profile expectations of a big-hitter after early jitters in her career. Shafali played a terrific knock of 124 off just 78 deliveries which included 19 fours and four sixes. She was ably supported by skipper Veda Krishnamurthy, who scored an equally mind-blowing knock of 99-ball 113 to steer India A to an impressive 312/9 in 50 overs.
