Veda Krishnamurthy’s Cricketing Story

Veda Krishnamurthy

Another player who ably paired with Captain Mithali Raj and led India to the semi-final of the ICC Women’s World Cup  is Veda Krishnamurthy. Her quick-fired 70 from 45 balls crushed New Zealand by 186 runs and guided India to a historic win.

Here are few things to know about the right-handed batsman and right-arm leg-break bowler from Karnataka:

  • The July 15 match was important for Veda as she collected her first half-century in 14 ODIs.

  • Veda was just 18 years old — youngest in the team — when she debuted against England in 2011, and batted a powerful half-century.
