Players to watch out:

Neelam Bisht

The 27-year-old all-rounder scalped 10 wickets in 8 outings during the Senior Women’s T20 (SWT20) competition, while also adding a few runs to the tally. Neelam’s a crafty spinner and will be very valuable on these Lucknow wickets. In the opener, she wasn’t required with the bat or ball.

Mannat Kashyap

The 19-year-old pacer picked up 9 wickets in 8 SWT20 outings, maintaining an economy rate of 4.29. Continuing her momentum, Mannat registered figures of 1/8 in the Inter Zonals T20 opener and will be relied upon to deliver the goods.

Vrinda Dinesh

The 22-year-old top-order batter amassed 211 runs from 7 outings, averaging 35.17 at a strike rate of 154.01. Vrinda closed out her SWT20 season with scores of 67(34) and 58(36). In the Inter Zonals opening fixture, she departed for an 8-ball 14 and will be trusted to convert her starts and post a significant score.

Bareddy Anusha

The 20-year-old left-arm off-spinner bagged 7 wickets in as many outings in the recently concluded SWT20 Trophy. Building on the momentum, Anusha, with figures of 2/24, has had a perfect start to her Inter Zonals competition but will aim to add more to the wickets column.

Pitch:

The slow-natured center wicket at Atal Bihari Vajpayee Cricket Stadium poses a challenge for batters to score with ease, and the modest average score of 102 at this venue attests to this fact. Bowlers, particularly spinners, play a crucial role in dictating the game’s outcome.

Weather:

The conditions at Atal Bihari Vajpayee Cricket Stadium are forecasted to be pleasant for the game, with cloudy overhead and a minimal chance of rain. The temperature is expected to be around 26°C, with light winds and a humidity level of 56%.
