Soumya Tiwari is another right-hand batter and off-spinner. She was brilliant in the recent domestic tournaments scoring 224 runs and picking 19 wickets in the 2021/22 U19 One Day Tournament and followed it up with 255 runs and 15 wickets in the 2022/23 U19 T20 Trophy. In the U19 Challenger Trophy, she scored 107 runs while also scoring 102 and 146 runs in the Quadrangular and New Zealand Development Tour. Her ability to score runs at ease while also scoring at a good run rate is what makes her critical in the middle order and her stellar fielding will come in handy for India.
