New Delhi. Indian captain Mithali Raj has praised the game of young cricketer Shefali Verma. He also welcomed Shefali to get a place in the team of all three formats and said that it is necessary to return to the winning path in England after the defeat in the home series against South Africa. The Indian women’s team, which has been away from the game for a long time due to the Corona virus epidemic, is going to leave for England for a tour of one Test, three ODIs and three T20 matches.
