Deepti Sharma has established herself as an invaluable member of the Indian Women's ODI and T20I teams for the past few years. The all-rounder is ready to make her Test debut this June. The Indian women’s team would visit England for a one-off Test followed by three ODIs and the same number of T20Is.

Deepti Sharma has taken 54 WT20I wickets in 51 matches. She has an economy of 6.06. Ahead of the team's trip to England, she is preparing to give a splendid performance.

Some of her best spells in the T20I format of the game are:

2018: 2/15 vs Ireland

The Indian team had restricted Ireland to 93 for 8 during their Women's World T20 encounter. Deepti Sharma’s handy contribution helped in achieving that feat. She dismissed opener Gaby Lewis and Shauna Kavanagh from the middle-order. Sharma registered a figure of 2/15 in that match. She helped India seal a 52-run victory against the Irish team.

India had put up a total of 145 for 6 on board. The knocks from Mithali Raj (51) and Smriti Mandhana (33) helped the team in putting up that score.

2019: 3/8 vs South Africa

The African team was restricted by Deepti Sharma. She took the wickets of Tazmin Brits, Nadine de Klerk and Shabnim Ismail.

Harmanpreet Kaur (43 off 34) had steadied the team to help take the Indian side to a respectable total of 131.

In a T20I encounter at Gros Islet, a rounder registered a figure of 4/10 against the West Indies women’s team.
