Players to watch out:
Hima has had a strong start to her season, consistently getting good starts, and she has formed a fantastic partnership with Sneha Deepthi. She has registered scores of 39, 20, and 24 in her recent outings, and she will be relied upon to convert these scores into significant ones.
Devika has enjoyed a promising start to her domestic cricket campaign, consistently providing breakthroughs and in her 4 outings so far, she has posted figures of 2/21, 0/16, 3/22, and 0/23. The team is banking on Devika to maintain this form and deliver more match-winning performances.
The 31-year-old batter plays a crucial role in the team’s batting unit and has brilliantly led her team from the front. Madhuri had a quiet start to her campaign, with a few single-digit scores, but she made a strong comeback. In her most recent outing, she delivered an impressive performance, scoring an unbeaten 81* from 63 balls.
The 24-year-old spinner previously showcased her talent in local state competitions and has now translated her form to a higher level. Barasarani began her domestic campaign with remarkable figures of 4/5, and her performance will be closely monitored as she continues to ply her craft.
The center wicket at Shaheed Veer Narayan Singh International Stadium, Raipur, presents challenges for batters due to its slow and spin-friendly nature, leading to an average score in the 100s. Batters will need to apply themselves thoroughly to thrive on this demanding track.
With light winds, a humidity level of 51%, and the temperature forecasted to hover around 31°C, the conditions are ideal for cricket. The overhead will be clear and the chances of rain are very low.
Fantasy playing XI:
Pragyan Mohanty, Madhuri Mehta, Sneha Deepti, Hima Bindu, Sushree Dibyadarshini, Padmaja Ellutla, K Devika, Anjali Singh, Sujata Mallick, Reena-Laxmi Ekka, Bareddy Anusha
