India bolster squad with pacer Shabnam Shakil for SA series

Mumbai, June 20 (UNI) In a strategic move, the Women’s Selection Committee on Thursday announced the inclusion of right-arm pacer Shabnam Shakil in India’s squad for the ongoing multi-format IDFC First Bank women's series against South Africa.
Shabnam, who has played for the U-19 Indian Women’s cricket team as a bowler, was part of the India Women’s team that won the inaugural Women’s U-19 T20 World Cup in 2023.
Growing up in Visakhapatnam in a middle-class family, Shabnam developed an interest in fast bowling at a young age, inspired by her father, a club cricket pacer. At eight, her father enrolled her at the NAD Academy in Visakhapatnam, where she was trained by coach Nagaraju.
