IND W vs AUS W: Did Shafali Verma just drop the Women's T20 World Cup final? Alyssa Healy makes India pay

Her batting exploits have earned her a lot of notoriety during the ongoing World Cup, but pressure may have just crept up on the 16-year-old Shafali Verma who dropped the dangerous Alyssa Healy in the very first over of the World Cup final. Healy had punished Deepti Sharma by hitting a four on the first ball and followed up with another boundary, two balls later. Sharma managed to create a chance on the fifth ball as Healy mistimed a shot toward covers but Verma made an unnecessary dive and ended up dropping an important catch.
