Wesikaratna Dewi

The 19-year-old pace all-rounder in Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is), in 4 innings, has accumulated 106 runs and picked up 8 wickets in 6 bowling outings. Wesikaratna got her campaign underway, rewriting her personal best to 56, and followed it with a 40*. With the ball, she produced figures of 1/14 and 2/14 in the opening couple of games and, in the 3rd game, rewrote her best bowling figures as well with figures of 3/10.

Andriani Andriani

The 28-year-old all-rounder in T20Is has scored 203 runs in 14 outings with the bat and bagged as many as 24 wickets in just 14 innings. Andriani hasn’t been required much with the bat and when she was, she stood up with an unbeaten 34*, while consistently delivering the goods with the ball, finishing on figures of 4/15, 1/11, and 3/2.

Erika Oda

The 36-year-old batter in 22 T20I appearances has added 405 runs to her tally, including the best of 48. Erika got her season underway registering a new career best of 48 and has consistently been among the runs in the tournament. She followed her score of 48 with a 46 and 31*. However, she was dismissed for a duck in her most recent outing, but it shouldn’t be much of a concern, given the form she is in.

Nonoha Yasumoto

The 17-year-old pacer in 9 T20I outings has picked up 11 wickets at an economy rate of 3.83. Nonoha bowled brilliantly in her first couple of games, finishing with figures of 2/12 and 1/12, and got big rewards for her consistent bowling display, returning career-best figures of 4/11 against Fiji. Though Nonoha proved expensive in her most recent outing, closing out on 0/23 (2), she’ll be backed to lead the attack.
