Players to watch out:

Indu Barma

The 26-year-old all-rounder, in T20Is, from 42 outings has amassed 587 runs and taken 25 wickets from 27 innings, including respective bests of 55* and 3/5. Indu, in the recently concluded domestic season, was brilliant for the team and carrying forward her form, registered a fine 40 and returned figures of 0/7 (2). She’ll be banked upon for the goods.

Puja Mahato

The 17-year-old pacer, from 14 T20I appearances, has scalped 13 wickets, including the best of 3/6, at an economy rate of 3.70. Puja, in the opener, produced figures of 2/19 and wasn’t required with the bat; however, was in notable form with the bat in the lead-up to this tournament and can be trusted to deliver, both with bat and ball.

Dechen Wangmo

The 30-year-old all-rounder, from 18 T20Is, has accumulated 296 runs, including the highest of 64*, and struck 15 wickets from as many outings, with the best being 4/8. Dechen, in the opener, scored a solid 35-ball 36 and off her two overs, conceded only two runs. It’ll be hoped she capitalizes on this form, continuing to lead the charts.
