In the series opener, Romela didn’t have the best of outings, departing for 4(4) and was on the receiving end during her bowling spells, yet managed a wicket, finishing on 1/35 (4). She’ll be backed to stage a comeback.

Shafina Mahesh

The 24-year-old all-rounder, in T20Is, has accumulated 331 runs, including the highest of 45*, from 34 outings and bagged 21 wickets, with the best being 4/2, from 23 bowling outings. Striking at 146.0, Shafina notched up a 63-ball 92* to kick off her campaign, and it’ll be hoped she follows up with another big score.
