With an average of 71.00, Gautami has accumulated 142 runs from 4 outings, and her scores read – 21 (14), 65 (53), 56 (37), and a duck.

Humairaa opened her campaign with a 35-ball 54 and followed it up with a 37, but faced a setback with a duck in the following game. Nevertheless, Humairaa made a quick comeback with a 54-ball 52 in her very next outing.
The 27-year-old pacer has made a strong start to her 2023-24 domestic season, with 6 wickets from 4 games. Saima has also managed to maintain an economical bowling rate and finished with figures of 1/27, 1/27, 1/5, and 2/10 in her 4 outings so far.
