WI-W vs IN-W, Match 6 Tri-Series: Top Five Picks

  1. Yastika Bhatia (IND): Wicketkeeper batter Yastika Bhatia opened the innings twice and was slotted at no. 3 position in the final game. It gives her perfect opportunity to get some runs under her belt and look for that maiden T20I half-century.
  2. Harmanpreet Kaur (IND): India skipper Harmanpreet Kaur batted only once in this Tri-Series and struck a half-century in that game. She will be looking to add another one before playing the grand final against South Africa.
  3. Deepti Sharma (IND): All-rounder Deepti Sharma is the joint highest wicket-taker with Masabata Klaas in this Tri-Series. She also scored 33 runs in the only game in which she batted and picking her would be a good option in this dead rubber.
  4. Hayley Matthews (WI): West Indies captain Hayley Matthews is the highest run-getter in this competition. With an average of 45.50, Matthews would be hoping to sign off the tournament with a big score to her name.
  5. Shemaine Campbelle (WI): West Indies batter Shemaine Campbelle has scored just 59 runs in 3 outings as she is due for a decent score in her last game of the series.
