Players to watch
The captain of Gymkhana led from the front with a blistering 50 off 31 in her last outing against Baranagar Sporting Club. Batting at number six, she blasted seven boundaries in her entertaining knock. She conceded 20 runs in 3.2 overs with the ball, opening the bowling.
The 24-year-old was one of the two wicket-takers for Gymkhana in the last match against Baranagar Sporting Club. She claimed 11/1 in two overs and bowled well in the middle phase of the innings. She was disciplined with her lines and lengths.
She is a left-handed opening batter and a right-arm off-spinner. Recently, she featured in the Women’s T20 Challenger Trophy in Raipur. She has been doing well at the domestic level as a promising all-rounder. She will be expected to lead her team, Mohun Bagan AC, from the front.
Tithi Swarpan Das:
This right-handed batter and right-arm seamer is a talented all-rounder who will play for Mohun Bagan AC. Her contributions with both bat and ball will be the key to her team’s success. She can be a genuine match-winner for any team.
It will be the third match of the tournament at this venue. The teams batting second have won both games so far. The highest total scored is 107, and the lowest total scored is 84. A morning start to the game could work in the favour of fast bowlers. Expect an exciting contest between the bat and the ball.
The weather is expected to see hazy sunshine. The highest temperature attained during the day will be 28 degrees Celsius. There will be a zero percent cloud cover and a zero percent chance of rain. The wind will blow from the north-northwest.
