Players to watch out:

Yastika Bhatia

The 23-year-old keeper-batter has been in sublime touch in this competition, amassing 333 runs from 5 outings, striking at 111.37. Yastika has consistently been amongst runs and followed up her scores of 42, 38, 40, and 62 with a season-best of 151 in her most recent outing. The team will count on her to lead the scoring in the final.

Anuja Patil

The 31-year-old all-rounder has impressed in this tournament, accumulating 134 runs from 3 innings while also taking 9 wickets from 4 games. Anuja returned figures of 3/52 and 4/10 from her first couple of outings, and with the bat, an inning apart, registered scores of 68 and 48. She’ll be banked upon for the goods.

Bharati Fulmali

The 29-year-old middle-order batter, averaging 86.50, has added 173 runs to the tally from 4 outings and registered her season-best of 65 in her most recent outing. Bharati kicked off her campaign registering successive scores of 53 (71) and 40 (40), and an inning apart registered her season best. She is in form, and it’ll be hoped she capitalizes on it.

Poonam Yadav

The 32-year-old leg-spinner has been exceptional in this tournament, bagging 12 wickets from 5 games, averaging 12.16, and maintaining an economy rate of 3.60. Poonam has produced figures of 2/46, 1/6, a season-best of 6/48, and 3/33 in her previous 4 outings, and it’ll be expected of the veteran spinner to carry forward this form into the Final.

Pitch:

The Kotambi Stadium dishes a good wicket to bat on, and we can expect it to be no different for the game, with an average score in the 250s. The wicket will also provide enough assistance for bowlers, especially the spinners, who can change the course of the game.

With sunny skies and a minimal chance of rain, the conditions are ideal for a complete game of cricket. The temperature is expected to be around 28°C, with light winds and humidity at 32%.
