Women players from country and abroad are participating in the Women’s Premier League, starting from March 4. Along with famous players from many countries, many new players are also participating, who have not yet got a chance to play on the big stage.
Who can be game changers in women’s premiere league ?
In this article, we are talking about many such unknown Indian players who can make a big impact in the match with their mere presence. Here are some players who could potentially be game changers:
Ashwani Kumari (Gujarat Giants)
Ashwani Kumari is the player who played a vital role in the middle order during the Senior Women’s One Day Trophy in 2020-21. She scored a total of 237 runs in the Senior Women’s T20 Trophy at a strike rate of 135.42.
V. Sneha Deepthi (Delhi Capitals)
V. Sneha Deepthi is the only active player in Indian domestic cricket who is also a mother. But this is not the specialty that separates them from others. She has a great ability to hit the bowlers hard and take advantage of the powerplay. During the Senior Women’s Inter-Zonal T20 in November 2020, she scored 114 runs in three innings at a strike rate of 162.85. Thus, she can be equated with Delhi Capitals’ top batsman Shafali Verma.
Disha Kasat (Royal Challengers Bangalore) –
Disha Kasat has been a prolific batter for Vidarbha in the domestic circuit, topping the batting charts in the Senior Women’s T20 Trophy with 300 runs at a strike rate of 114.50. She could become Captain Smriti Madhana’s partner in the probable list of top batters for Royal Challengers Bangalore.
Amanjot Kaur (Mumbai Indians)
Kaur is a hard-hitting batter and a seam bowleralso, which could make her a valuable all-rounder for Mumbai Indians. She has shown herself to be a calm player in the beginning of her career in the Indian team, which can be a good option for the lower-middle order.
Kiran Prabhu Navagayar (UP Warriors)
Kiran Prabhu Navagayar grabbed headlines when she became the first Indian to hit a 150-plus score in a T20I match with her record-breaking 76-ball 162 for Nagaland against Arunachal Pradesh. She could potentially help make up for the dearth of Indian batting options in the UP Warriors squad.
Shreyanka Patil (Royal Challengers Bangalore)
Shreyanka Patil is an offspinner, known for her economical bowling. She took 20 wickets in the Senior Women’s One Day Trophy for Karnataka. She can also be a reliable batsman for Royal Challengers Bangalore.
Jintimani Kalita (Mumbai Indians)
Jintimani Kalita is a bowling all-rounder who is best known for seaming the ball with his left arm. Apart from this, she has also shown her skills in batting, she played an important innings of 78 runs in 114 balls for Assam in the Senior Women’s One Day Trophy, in which she also received a lot of praise.
By joining the Mumbai Indians squad, she can enhance her game even more and can prove to be a valuable player for Mumbai Indians.
Overall, these seven players can prove to be game changers during the matches of the Women’s Premier League. However, due to being limited to domestic matches, all these players have not been able to get the fame that they should have got.
Hopefully, they will be able to make a big impact in this tournament with their game and help their teams achieve success.
