It was a magical outing by Anushka Sharma, as her all-round effort allowed India B to rout India A by 92 runs in the Women's U-19 One Day Challenger Trophy 2021-22. However, please don't get confused by the name, as she is in no way connected to Indian skipper Virat Kohli or her Bollywood wife, Anushka Sharma.
