Asha Shobhna breaks these major records on her ODI debut

Smriti Mandhana and Asha Sobhana helped the Indian women’s team win big, beating South Africa by 143 runs in the first one-day cricket game in Bengaluru on Sunday, June 16. Smriti made her seventh hundred in international cricket, and Asha, playing her first one-day international, took four wickets and set two big records.

The 33-year-old leg-spinner became the top bowler at M Chinnaswamy Stadium, taking four wickets and only giving away 21 runs in 8.4 overs. She beat the record set by men’s cricket team player Prasidh Krishna for the best bowling performance among current male or female Indian cricketers.

Sobhana’s 4 wickets for 21 runs were better than Parsidh’s impressive 4 wickets for 54 runs against England when he first played in March 2021. Sobhana’s performance is the second-best bowling figures for an Indian player on their ODI debut, just behind Purnima Choudhary’s 5 wickets for 21 runs against the West Indies in December 1997.

Additionally, at 33 years and 92 days, Sobhana is now the oldest player to make their ODI debut for the Indian women’s team. She had already set the record for being the oldest player to debut in a T20I match when she played against Bangladesh last month.
