Players to watch out:
The 22-year-old batter had a decent run in the T20 leg scoring 61 runs, including the highest of 38, in 3 innings. The Invaders will want Jayadhanyha to convert her starts, for an improved run in the tournament.
The 21-year-old all-rounder is the leading wicket-taker of the side with 7 scalps to her name, striking at an economy rate of 3.62, and has produced the best bowling figures of 4/14. Jairupa’s form will remain crucial for the success of Invaders in the tournament.
The 27-year-old batter with just 36 runs against her name in 3 T20s hasn’t had the best of seasons, but expect the talented batter to bounce back with big runs during the One-Dayers, on the back of her starts.
The 20-year-old all-rounder has had a brilliant run in the tournament scoring 62 runs, including the highest of 47 runs in 3 innings. Akshara bagged 6 wickets in the T20 leg, at an economy rate of 3.39 and has got the best of 3/10.
The center wicket at the Stag Cricket Ground offers favorable conditions for bowlers, particularly spinners, leading to a modest average score. Batters face challenges but can look to convert their starts once they find their rhythm.
Although the sky is mostly cloudy and there is a 60% chance of rain, the conditions are expected to be suitable for a complete game of cricket. The temperature is predicted to be around 33°C, with light winds and a humidity level of 66%.
