Seventeen-year-old Shafali Verma is leading India from the front, smashing two half-centuries on her debut in the one-off Test against England Women. On Friday, Shafali became only the fourth player in the history of women's cricket to score a half-century in both innings of the debut Test.

She was unbeaten on 55 off just 68 balls in the second innings when the third day's play was called off due to rain. Shafali and the Indian women team's performance hasn't gone unnoticed as R Sridhar, the fielding coach of India men's team, said that they hadn't missed a "beat of the girls' game" from day one.

The official handle of BCCI shared a 58-second clip from Sridhar's press conference on Twitter.

"Support for the women's team from Southampton! Go well! Team India," reads the caption of the video.
