Shafali Verma (Captain)
Any adjective will fall short to describe this immensely talented youngster who impressed everyone as a 15-year-old when she made her debut in the T20I and also holds the distinction of being the youngest half-centurion. She is one of the finest openers around and exudes confidence and class at ease and has done so in remarkable fashion in the 74 outings for the senior team. She will be a star to watch out for in the tournament and although she was at her average best during the South Africa series so she will be looking to make a statement. In the warm-ups, she showed how she can be a value addition with her bowling as well considering her three-wicket haul versus Australia.
