All-rounder Tahlia McGrath has been blazing left and right. She has recently been in golden form in T20s. Since her debut in October 2021, McGrath has cemented her place in the almighty Australian lineup. Regarded as one of the most explosive batters in the new age, Tahlia expressed that she loved the format because it gave her the freedom to play her natural game. 

“I think the thing about the T20 format for me is I have so much freedom."

McGrath has undoubtedly come up as one of the biggest finds for Australian cricket, someone who is phenomenal with the bat and the ball. A player with immense heart. She exudes passion whenever she walks onto the field. An aura like no other, Tahlia McGrath has already gathered the attention of many, and all for the right reasons.

Pitch Report: The pitch at the Edgbaston is pretty constructive for batters. Teams batting first will have greater chances of winning. It is a fair scoring surface and helps spinners as the game proceeds.
