Coming from shai, this is a big thing— Harsimran Singh Sandhu ਹਰਸਿਮਰਨ ਸਿੰਘ ਸੰਧੂ (@Harsandhu5982) April 21, 2020
She is only slightly taller than the bat presently but look at the footwork and the wristwork. Please don't let anything come in between her and her dreams.— praveen sridhar (@pravieen) April 21, 2020
Elegance personified 👌. Must say Shai that you've already grown up to emulate Pari Sharma with your exquisite range of strokes after a sedate and solid start. 🏏— PRASHANT KESHWAIN 🏏 (@pkeshwain) April 21, 2020
The India lockdown is currently extended till May 3. The IPL 2020 was supposed to begin on March 29 but has now been suspended until further notice due to the India lockdown. Shai Hope was unsold in the 2020 IPL Auctions.
