Players to watch out:
The 25-year-old middle-order batter didn’t have the best of starts to her tournament, departing cheaply with scores of 9, 2, and 9. However, in her most recent outing, she managed a 32-ball 43. While her runs have come a bit late in the tournament, she will be looking to finish on a high note.
The 26-year-old pacer has bowled brilliantly this tournament, scalping 7 wickets in 5 games while maintaining an economy rate of 5.33. Krutikaben, in her previous three outings, has recorded figures of 2/30, 1/15, and 3/29, and she’ll be looking to conclude the tournament on a strong note.
The 26-year-old batter started her campaign with a decent 24 but didn’t make a significant impact on the team’s batting unit, although she managed to get some starts. Shivani’s last three outings produced scores of 31, 15, and 11, and she will want to end the competition on a high note to carry forward that momentum into a long season ahead.
The 29-year-old all-rounder got her season underway with figures of 1/28 and, although she went wicketless in the following game, she contributed with a useful 19 (13) with the bat. Kanchan, in her last three outings, has posted figures of 2/20, 3/10, and 1/24, accumulating a total of 7 wickets from 5 games.
The center wicket at Barabati Stadium, Cuttack, offers a balanced playing surface that slightly favors the bowlers. While it is conducive for batting, the average score in the 120s suggests there’s assistance that bowlers, particularly spinners, can expect from the pitch.
The conditions at Barabati Stadium, Cuttack, are expected to be pleasant for cricket, with no anticipated rain interruptions and clear sunny skies. The temperature will be around 30°C, with light winds and humidity at 55%.
