Apart from the praise, he also declared a cash reward of Rs 5 lakhs to the 28-year-old all-rounder.
Following the footsteps of the Punjab government, Himachal Pradesh CM Virbhadra Singh lauded the efforts of Indian wicket-keeper Sushma Verma in a similar fashion. Singh offered the post of DSP to Sushma in the Himachal Pradesh police in a bid to reward her exploits in England.
“The government has invited Sushma Verma to join the post of DSP in HP Police as she has brought laurels to the state and to the people of Himachal Pradesh by excelling herself in international cricket,” he said.
