The Women’s Premier League 2024 is here and the top women players from around the world will get together once again to take part in the most prestigious franchise tournament in women’s cricket. The batters will once again be at the forefront of the things as T20 cricket takes centre stage. The second edition is set to see more power-hitting and blistering innings from some of the top batters in the world. Let’s take a look at some of the top batters that will dominate the run-scoring in WPL 2024.
3 batters to watch out for during Women’s Premier League 2024
3) Natalie Sciver-Brunt
The English cricketer Nat Sciver-Brunt becomes a key member of the Mumbai Indians Women’s team. Sciver put up a tremendous showing in the last WPL season, scoring 332 runs across 10 games at a remarkable 66.40 average and a blistering 140.08 strike rate. Her recent performances in the WBBL 2023–24 season and the T20I series in India highlight her importance in the team’s batting order even more.
2) Jemimah Rodrigues
Jemimah has been explosive before that, and her ability to transform such beginnings into game-winning hits makes her a formidable force, even though her returns against Australia have been diminishing over the previous three Twenty20 Internationals. When it pertains to batting routines and her ability to speak her opinion at any time, she is a floater. She frequently bats number four, which would need a hitter to fire an innings that focuses more on combining ferocity and composure, sometimes picking just one of the two to make it count.
1) Smriti Mandhana
In T20I cricket events, Smriti Mandhana recovered from a lacklustre WPL 2023 season, accumulating 539 runs in 21 matches. She amassed 167 runs with an average of 55.67 as well as a strike rate of 103.72 in three matches throughout domestic events. Mandhana’s importance in the team’s batting order is highlighted by her capacity to step up to the plate and keep her high standing in the T20I rankings.
