Players to watch out:

Dayalan Hemalatha

The 29-year-old batter amassed 199 runs from 6 outings in the recently concluded Senior Women’s T20 (SWT20) season. She scored her runs at a strike rate of 130.06, averaging 49.75, registering the highest of 98*. However, she couldn’t carry forward the same form into the Inter Zonals, departing on scores of 3(7), 0(2), and 21(26). It’ll be hoped she capitalizes on this return to form.

Rajeshwari Gayakwad

The 32-year-old off-spinner bagged 6 wickets in five ’23 SWT20 outings, maintaining an economy rate of 4.87. Continuing her form, Rajeshwari has been economical in the Inter Zonals but has only bagged a couple of wickets from 3 outings, returning figures of 0/32, 2/15, and 0/22. She’ll be backed to find her form and get back to her wicket-taking best.

Nabam Yapu

The pace all-rounder struggled to get going and be among the runs in the ’23 SWT20 trophy. However, come the Inter Zonals, she has managed starts consistently, registering scores of 9(12), 35(48), and 18(26). In her 2nd outing, she also finished with bowling figures of 1/25. It’ll be expected of her to make the most of the form she is in.

Debasmita Dutta

The 27-year-old all-rounder had a disappointing SWT20 campaign, failing to leave a mark with both the bat and ball. In the Inter Zonals, Debasmita had a quiet start with the bat, departing on scores of 1(10) and 8(29), but has recovered, registering a 24 in her most recent outing. In her only bowling outing, she produced bowling figures of 2/23. It’ll be watched if she can build on this momentum.
