IN-W v IR-W, Match 18: Top Five Picks

  1. Richa Ghosh (IN-W): The Indian wicketkeeper has been 'The Batter' for the team in this tournament. Richa Ghosh has scored runs consistently and at a brilliant strike rate.She is a must pick for this match.
  2. Orla Prendergast (IR-W): In an Irish team that has been a bit top heavy, Orla Prendergast has been the most promising. She has been very consistent with the bat and has bowled some decent overs. If there is one player you have to pick from the Ireland team, it should Prendergast. 
  3. Renuka Singh Thakur (IN-W): The opening bowler looked in great form against England. The pitch at St George's Park has offered swing and Renuka has made the most of it. As this match will be played on the same wicket, Renuka Singh Thakur will be a very important pick for the match. 
  4. Gaby Lewis (IR-W): The Irish opener has looked in good touch. Gaby Lewis has been entrusted with the job of giving Ireland some good starts and she has done it quite decently. Lewis could be a good pick for the match. 
  5. Smriti Mandhana (IN-W): The Indian opener did not have a good start to the tournament. But Mandhana has regained her form with brilliant half-century against England in the last match. Mandhana's current form makes her choice you cannot ignore for the match.
