India's young dynamic opener Shafali Verma has recorded her name in a unique list that features Bangladesh's Nahida Akter, Richa Ghosh and England's Sophie Ecclestone. 

The ongoing Women's T20 Asia Cup Final between India and Sri Lanka is the fourth final for Shafali in a T20I tournament and with that, she becomes the joint-highest teenagers to play most finals among the top 15 teams along with Nahida Akhter. 

She is now ahead of Sophie Ecclestone who has been a part of finals on three occasions. While the Indian wicket-keeper Richa Ghosh has also made her presence felt. 

India puts up an impressive show against Sri Lanka by halting them on 65 for the loss of nine wickets with impressive bowling figures from Renuka Singh who grabbed 3 wickets. The Blues now need 66 runs to lift their seventh title.
