Players to watch out:

Angeliki Argiropoulou

A 16-year-old right-handed batter impressed everyone with her 41* which included 5 boundaries, against Romania. As of now, Greece has featured in just 3 T20Is and she is their leading run scorer in the short history with a total of 88 runs.

Maria Vervitsioti

In her brief career of 3 matches against Serbia and Romania, this right-arm speedster has picked 6 scalps at an astonishing average of just 5.5. Her best figure of 3 for 8 helped to terminate Romania’s innings at just 77.

Lucy Barnett

Out of the players who have played all the 7 T20Is for the Isle of Man, Lucy has been the most consistent batter with 214 runs at a strike rate of 113. To further solidify her case, she is also their best bowler with 9 wickets courtesy of her decent off-spin bowling. Even in the recent tour to Austria (3-match T20I series), she accumulated 108 runs at a strike rate of 121 and 5 wickets.

Catherine Perry

The 18-year-old right-arm pacer has picked 7 wickets from as many matches at an average of 17. Her personal best performance came in her debut match against Norway where she picked 3 for 13. In the recent Austria tour, she picked 4 wickets.


The wicket at Moara Vlasiei Cricket Ground is a bowler’s friendly pitch and will assist pacers. The average score is 82. So anything above that will be a challenging total.


It is set to be a hot day with the average temperature to be around 39 degree Celsius. The precipitation is expected to be 0%, humidity to be around 37% and the wind speed being 23 km/h.
