Skipper Shafali Verma smashed 50 off 23 balls to lead Haryana to a three-wicket win over Harmanpreet Kaur-led Punjab in the Senior Women's T20 Trophy on Monday. This matches Shafali's record for her fastest T20 fifty - her 23-ball 50 for Birmingham Phoenix vs Welsh Fire in The Hundred in 2021.

Harmanpreet hammered an unbeaten 64 off 38 balls to take Punjab to 155 for three in 20 overs. Haryana overcame the target with four balls to spare.

After Shafali's blazing innings that comprised seven fours and three sixes, Suman Guila (31 off 25) and Mansi Joshi (25 not out off 16) took the team home on the opening day of the competition.

In Rajkot, defending champions Railways made a winning start with a 64-run victory over Himachal Pradesh. S Meghana (47 off 40) and Swagatika Rath (69 off 44) fired Railways to 181 for four with a 103-run stand.

Regular skipper Mithali Raj did not play the opening game and Sneh Rana captained in her absence. In response, Himachal were bundled out for 117 in 19.2 overs.
