Had it not been her age, she would have created a strong contender out of herself for a batter's position in Indian women's cricket team. With her sleek cover drives and excellent uppercuts, 8-year-old Pari Sharma from Rohtak in Haryana will give even the senior batters a run for their money.
Pari recently posted a video of her practice in the nets where she is seen facing both spinners and pacers on a cemented turf. With all the batting gears in place, she plays every ball on its merit.
She cover drives, sweeps, punches on back foot, flicks on her pads, she seems to have all the shots in her kitty. And the style and grace in her batting reminds of the great Rahul Dravid.
She is a verified user on Facebook and boasts more than 121,000 followers on her page.
While some followers went gaga over her shot selection, some wanted her to play for India already.
A user Abhisek Chawla commented, "Pari Sharma u will be wearing blue jersey and this is 100 percent sure."
Another user, Vijay Gaonkar raised concern over her practising mainly on cement pitches, " Pari Sharma beta ciment pitch pe jada practice mat Karo...."
