Players to watch out:

Madhuri Mehta

The 32-year-old batter built on a decent start to the recently concluded Senior Women’s T20 (SWT20) Trophy, finishing with scores of 81 (63) and 54 (53) in a 178-run season from 6 outings, striking at 105.32. The team will rely on the seasoned campaigner to lead the side from the front, continuing the form she’s in.

Mita Paul

The 28-year-old all-rounder had a decent campaign in the SWT20 Trophy, contributing 94 runs from 8 outings while picking up 11 wickets from 9 outings. Mita wasn’t at her best with the bat in the SWT20, and her team will expect her to convert her starts while continuing to deliver with the ball, showcasing all-rounder abilities.

Humairaa Kaazi

The 30-year-old all-rounder had an outstanding run in the 2023 SWT20 Trophy, amassing 258 runs from 10 outings, striking at 113.15, and averaging 32.25. The team will hope Humairaa’s confident form carries forward into the Inter Zonals. Although she wasn’t required much with the ball in the SWT20, she could prove to be very handy if called upon to bowl in this competition.

Hani claimed several key wickets in the senior T20 competition, and it’ll be worth tracking her progress in this competition as well. The team will rely on her to create early inroads and set the right tone.
