Players to watch out:

Chipo Mugeri-Tiripano

The 32-year-old top-order batter, from 42 T20I innings, has amassed 914 runs, including the highest of 80, at an average of 26.88 and a strike rate of 109.19. Chipo has been in good form lately, and her scores from her previous couple of outings read 66 and 38. She is amongst the best batters on the team and it’ll be hoped that she capitalizes on her form.

Josephine Nkomo

The 26-year-old all-rounder in T20Is has added 404 runs to the tally from 33 innings, at an average of 22.44, and struck 42 wickets from 43 outings, with bests being 56* and 4/7. Josephine, in her only warm-up game, scored a run-a-ball 38 and conceded only 3 runs off her only over. The team will count on her to continue with this momentum.

Selina Solman

The 28-year-old all-rounder, from 35 T20I appearances, has added 427 runs to the tally, including the highest of 50*, and taken 41 wickets, including the best of 5/9. Selina didn’t have the best of outings during the warm-up fixtures, departing cheaply on scores of 13 and 9, while her bowling figures read 2/25 (4) and 0/18 (2). She will be back to find her mojo.
