Xtra Time Web Desk: Tokyo Olympics gold medallist and India’s ace sporting icon Neeraj Chopra met the Indian U19 women’s cricket team ahead of the U19 T20 World Cup final. Shafali Verma and her team will meet England in the final to be played at Potchefstroom. Neeraj, who is currently training in South Africa, interacted with the U19 women cricketers and motivated them ahead of their first big final.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) tweeted a few pics of the interaction between Neeraj and U19 Women cricketers. Sharing the pictures, BCCI captioned the post, “A Gold-standard meeting!
Neeraj knows a thing or two about tackling high-pressured situations in competitions and his invaluable inputs to handle nerves in key moments of the final should come handy for the young stars in Indian team.
It goes to be seen if Shafali Verma and her team gets buoyed by the pep-talk from Neeraj and win the final.
