Players to watch out:
The all-rounder plays her domestic cricket for Uttarakhand, and in the ongoing inaugural edition of the WUPL, Radha has put up impressive performances both with the bat and the ball. Radha has built on her starts and notched a fine 42(54) in her previous outing. With the ball, she has recorded figures of 1/18 (4), 1/10 (3.4), and 3/22 (4).
The 16-year-old pacer has had a good tournament. Priya hasn’t had a lot of bowling to do, but in the little we’ve seen of her, she’s sent down impressive spells. Priya has bowled a couple of overs each in all 3 of her outings and has finished with bowling figures of 1/13, 1/4, and 0/14.
The 26-year-old all-rounder has had a below-par series with the bat, managing a highest score of 21(16). With the ball, Tara has proved to be economical, though she continues to be wicketless. In 2 bowling outings, she has produced notable figures of 0/21 (4) and 0/13 (4), helping the side contain runs.
The 20-year-old all-rounder is a key part of the bowling line-up, and by registering figures of 1/15 (4), 0/22 (4), and 1/22 (3), Pooja has done well with the ball, leading the bowling attack. She has kept the economy rate in check but would want to pick up a few more wickets.
The pitch at the Abhimanyu Cricket Academy, Dehradun, is a low-scoring one that typically favors bowlers, especially spinners. The average score at this venue is in the 80s, making it a challenging wicket for the batters.
Showers are expected at the start time, so we could have a delay in the start of proceedings if the skies don’t clear. However, the weather is expected to be bright and clear for the remainder of the day, with a temperature of 27°C, light winds, and humidity at 83%.
