Key Players: Women Super League, TNPL, English T20 Blast


Key players for Women Super League, TNPL and English T20 Blast Matches

The next 24 hours will witness 5 matches from different leagues across the globe. Here are the list of key players from the matches of Women Super League, Tamil Nadu Premier League and English T20 Blast.


Lancashire Thunder vs Surrey Stars:

This will be the only game from the Women Super League for the day and the two teams contesting here will be Lancashire Thunder and Surrey Stars.

Lancashire Thunder:

On the batting front, New Zealand recruit Amy Sattherwaite has been doing the talking with the bat as she has notched two fifties so far against Yorkshire Diamonds and in the last match against Western Storm. She has made 171 runs so far in 5 outings and is the leading run scorer for the Lancashire Thunder.

Harmanpreet Kaur got run out for a golden duck in the last game against Western Storm but her credentials can’t be taken for granted, therefore, she would be gutting for some decent performances and will be a key player with both bat and ball.

Surrey Stars:

Surrey Stars who have not played to their potential so far will rely heavily on skipper Natalie Sciver who has got 156 runs thus far and has taken 2 wickets with the ball. On the bowling front, Sophia Dunkley and Marizane Kapp have scalped 4 wickets each and therefore they will be the key bowlers for Surrey.


Dindigul Dragons vs Madurai Panthers:

This will be the first Qualifier of this year’s Tamil Nadu Premier League which will be played at the Indian Cement Company Ground in Tirunelveli. Let us delve into the key players from either side.

Dindigul Dragons:

The Dindigul Dragons finished at the top of the league table as they won 5 of their seven games. Skipper N Jagadeesan has led from the front with the bat as he has done the bulk of scoring for his side. He has 302 runs to his name from 7 innings with 3 fifties at an average of 75.50. R Vivek too has supported him well with 195 runs from 5 innings which includes 2 half-centuries.

On the bowling front, Abhinav M has been the pick of bowlers with 6 wickets from 7 games at an economy rate of 7.55, therefore, he will be the key bowler for the Dragons.

Madurai Panthers: 

Arun Karthik is the second highest run-getter of the tournament with 307 runs to his name from 7 innings with a highest score of 85*. The bowling attack will be led by the duo of Rahil Shah and Abhishek Tanwar who have picked 15 wickets between them from 7 matches.


Durham Jets vs Lancashire:

The next South Group game will see the Durham Jets squaring off against Lancashire.

Durham Jets:

The Durham Jets failed to capitalize in their last match against Worcestershire Rapids and eventually lost the game by 3 wickets. Skipper Tom Latham played a valiant inning of 78 off 49 deliveries but it was not enough to take his team across the line. He has scored 355 runs from 9 innings so far with 3 scores of above 50 to his name.

On the bowling front, they will rely on James Weighell who has taken 9 wickets from 7 games and Nathan Rimmington who has the highest number of wickets to his name with 12 from 9 matches.


Lancashire who had a heartbreaking defeat in their last match against Leicestershire Foxes will still go as the favourites into this game. Talking about the key players, their batting will heavily rely on Alex Davies and stand-in skipper Dane Vilas who have to perform well in the absence of their regular skipper Liam Livingstone who was their highest run-getter.

Bowling will depend on Toby Lester and Matthew Parkinson who have collectively taken 20 wickets among them.


Glamorgan vs Essex Eagles:

Glamorgan and Essex Eagles will lock horns in the next South Group encounter which will be played at the Sophia Gardens in Cardiff.


Skipper Colin Ingram has been among the runs with 227 runs to his name from 6 games, his highest score is 81* which he scored against the Sussex Sharks at Cardiff. Apart from him, Kiran Carlson is also one the key batsman in the team as he has amassed 188 runs from 6 innings so far.

On the bowling front, Ruaidhri Smith who bowled a dream spell in the last encounter against Middlesex scalping 4 for just 6 runs will be the key bowler along with Timm van der Gugten who has taken 14 wickets from 8 games.

Essex Eagles: 

Varun Chopra has been batting brilliantly as he has got 346 runs off 9 innings with a highest score of 67. Ryan ten Doeschate and Adam Wheater are the other two guys who have contributed gradually well with the bat with 171 and 180 runs to their name from 9 innings.

On the bowling front, Adam Zampa is the lone warrior with 12 wickets to his name from 9 games at an average of 17.75 with the economy being 7.74.
