Mahika Gaur: 

The left-arm speedster of UAE picked up 27/1 in four overs in her last appearance against India. She opened the bowling with captain Chaya Mughal and bowled well with the new ball. She struck in her second over, giving a good start to UAE. She was also the most economical bowler in the team.
