Players to watch out:

Madalina Marin

16-year-old batting prodigy Marin is a young talent to watch out for. Not having made many notable performances thus far, she will be looking to knock the doors of opportunity and accumulate runs. Batting at the top with the new ball, and negating the quicker bowlers will be key to her run-making.

R Layla Blake

A useful warrior with the bat and an effective off-spinner, Layla’s presence in the team adds concrete composure to the Romanian side. The 24-year-old has scored 217 runs in the T20I at a whopping strike rate of 148.63. Her brute power will come as a useful element in the middle and death overs as the Romanian team will look to accelerate.

Kim Carney

The 37-year-old batter possesses bucketloads of experience. With 117 runs in T20I’s at an average of 23.40 she will look to better the numbers in this tournament. Being one of the most senior players in the mix, it’ll be crucial for her to contribute in all possible aspects and uplift the team’s performance.

Catherine Perry

Spearheading the bowling lineup, 18-year-old Catherine comes into this tournament with brief experience on the international circuit. With 7 wickets in 7 games at an economy of 5.49 she will play an integral role in restricting runs of the opposition at crunch situations.

Pitch:

A well-balanced track with a slight advantage for the batters. But it’s only a matter of hitting the right lengths for the bowlers and restricting their counterparts to a lower total.

Weather:

Humid playing conditions are forecasted, with temperatures hovering around 40 degrees and no possible chance of rain. Tough conditions to play with forecasted excess heat.

Fantasy Playing XI:

Madalina Marin, Kim Carney, A Erandathi Durayalage, Ellan Cleator, C Priyadarsha Godagamage, Lucy Barnett, R Layla Blake, Catherine Perry, Danielle Murphy, Alanya Thorpe, Grigore Nicola.
