Players to watch out:

Poonam Khemnar

The 29-year-old all-rounder racked up 329 runs, including the highest of 142*, in 7 Senior Women’s T20 (SWT20) games, and also proved effective with the ball. Poonam kicked off her Inter Zonals campaign on a high, departing for 5 in the opener, but will be backed to bounce back among the runs.

Ekta Bisht

The 37-year-old left-arm spinner excelled in the recently concluded SWT20, scalping 15 wickets from 10 outings, and maintaining an economy rate of 4.66. Ekta was also more than handy with the bat, contributing consistently with late runs. Carrying forward her momentum, she recorded figures of 2/19 against South Zone in the opener.

Sayali Satghare

The 23-year-old all-rounder bagged 8 wickets in the SWT20 from 10 outings, maintaining an economy rate of 5.90. She’s also been handy with the bat, chipping in with late runs. In the Inter-Zonal opener, Sayali departed for 5 with the bat but finished with bowling figures of 1/21.

Gautami Naik

The 25-year-old all-rounder amassed 264 runs from just 7 SWT20 outings, averaging 66.00, at a strike rate of 132.66, and registered the best of 65. Gautami finished her season on a high, but she hasn’t carried forward the same form into the Inter Zonals, departing for 4(18) in the opener. She’ll be trusted to stage a quick turnaround.


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.


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 24°C, with light winds and a humidity level of 56%.
