Players to watch out:

Shabika Gajnabi

Though Shabika departed for 20 in the opener, she scored a solid 102-ball 61 in her most recent outing, while has only sent down 4 overs yet. She’ll be relied upon for the goods.

Plaffianna Millington

Kycia Knight

The 32-year-old keeper-batter accumulated 117 runs, including the highest of 40, from five Super50 outings last summer. Kycia didn’t have an ideal start to her campaign, departing for 7, but in the following game, top scored with a 134-ball 93. The team will count on the experience of the seasoned campaigner for big runs.

Aaliyah Alleyne

The 29-year-old all-rounder in the 2023 Super50 Cup added 134 runs to the tally from 4 outings while also claiming a wicket from her only bowling inning. This season, while Alleyne has registered scores of 9 and 10 to her name, she’s compensated with the ball, producing figures of 3/24 (8.5) and 2/33 (10.0). She can be trusted for all-round performances.


St Paul’s Sports Complex dishes out a balanced center wicket with a slight advantage for bowlers over batters, as evidenced by a modest average score in the 180s. The conditions will see spinners holding an advantage at the venue.
