Alice is in notable form ahead of the tournament with runs and wickets to her name, and it’ll be hoped she capitalizes on this form.

Cathia Uwamahoro

The 30-year-old batter, from 8 outings, amassed 140 runs, including the highest of 43 in the competition late last year. She last played an international match back in 2022, and it’ll be watched how she resumes. It’ll be expected of the veteran batter that she anchors the innings, leading the tally.

Marie Bimenyimana

The 27-year-old all-rounder in the previous edition scored 102 runs from 7 innings, while leading the wickets tally with 16 from 8 outings. Marie was consistently effective with the ball and also chipped in with the bat in a recent series. It’ll be hoped she carries the form into the tournament.
