Probable Best Batter of the Match

UP Warriorz’s captain Alyssa Healy finally registered a good score against her name in the last fixture after a couple of failures (5,13). She played a brilliant knock of 33 (29) against Mumbai but failed to convert it into a big score. The Australian captain is touted as one of the fiercest strikers of the cricket ball boasting a strike rate of 129.15 in T20Is. After three below-par outings in the season so far, Healy will be hungry for a big knock in the upcoming fixture.

Probable Best Bowler of the Match

Gujarat Giants’ Tanuja Kanwar is the leading wicket-taker of her side with three wickets to her name from two matches at an average of 13.66 and an economy of 6.83. The left-arm spinner picked up 2/21 against Mumbai Indians Women and will be eager to replicate her performance in the upcoming fixture.
