Shafali's struggle since T20 World Cup 2020

Lowest average of openers since T20 World Cup 2020 (minimum 15 innings)

5 | Tammy Beaumont

Beaumont is another England opener on the list. However, her average of 32.14 is not that low. She has scored 450 runs from 15 innings.

4 | Sophie Devine

New Zealand's explosive opener has scored 408 runs from 17 innings at an average of 25.5.

3 | Danielle Wyatt 

England's veteran batter has scored 571 runs from 26 innings at an average of 23.79.

2 | Shafali Verma

18-year-old opener has scored 448 runs from 22 innings at an average of 20.36. During this period, the only half-century she scored was against South Africa last year.

1 | Alyssa Healy (Australia)

Australia's wicketkeeper-batter has scored 147 runs from 17 innings at a disappointing average of 10.5.

Good starts, no big scores

So far, Shafali has got starts but they have not been able to convert them into big scores.

Promising in CWG 2022

Shafali was unlucky to miss out on two half-centuries in CWG against Australia and Barbados.

Shafali scored just 39 runs from 3 innings against England in the recently concluded T20I series.

Poor run in England
