Players to watch out:

Chamari Athapaththu

The 33-year-old all-rounder has been a great addition in the side and has delivered, amassing 210 runs and taking 9 wickets from 8 outings. Chamari, following scores of 0 and 6, was back amongst runs, scoring a solid 46 in her most recent outing, and can be trusted to capitalize on this return to form.

Marama Downes

The 21-year-old pacer, averaging 11.46, has struck 15 scalps from 10 games, maintaining an economy rate of 5.31. Marama, in her previous 3 Smash outings, has returned figures of 2/14, 5/12, and 1/13, and it’ll be expected of her to carry forward this momentum into the must-win eliminator.

Hollie Armitage

The 26-year-old batter, posting 219 runs from 8 outings and striking at 111.73, has justified her signing, leading the scoring for the team. Hollie has registered successive scores of 47, 33, 38, and 4, while also sending down a few balls. The team will count on her to deliver the goods, especially with the bat.
