Marguerite Bessala

The 21-year-old middle-order batter has added 94 runs to the tally from 19 T20Is and registered the highest score of 24*. Marguerite, in her first outing in this competition, added 4 runs to the tally and followed up with two unbeaten innings of 24 and 7. In her previous 3 innings, she has departed on scores of 7, 0, and 0, and will be backed to step up her efforts, contributing with all-round efforts.

Cynerah Mboe

The 31-year-old all-rounder has scored 54 runs from 10 outings and from 4 bowling innings has struck 3 wickets, with bests being 20 and 2/12.

It is expected that she builds on this momentum and delivers the goods.
