Now as we are well into the year of 2020, cricket fans are looking forward for T20 extravaganza, as the year suggests of course! And first from that plethora is women’s T20 world cup starting from 21st February in Australia. Let’s take a look at 5 key players who can help their teams to propel towards that big final on 8th March at MCG.
This Australian superstar does not need any introduction to cricket fans. Ellyse Perry is the trendsetter in women’s game. And her magnitude and persona are not only limited to cricket but all across women’s sports worldwide. She is the only player to represent her country at senior world cups of cricket and football.
This 29-year-old all-rounder is in terrific form leading into the championship. Her Ashes heroics are still fresh in everyone’s minds. As always, she will be critical to not only Australia’s plans but also the reach of the tournament.
The Australian team is filled with superstars and here is another one from the top drawer. Alyssa Healy had lit up the stage in the Caribbean during the last edition of women’s T20 world cup. She was the highest run-scorer for the tournament. She first made her name when she played alongside boys in private school competition in Sydney.
Notably, she is famous for her humorous interactions with fans on social media. She is wife of Australian fast bowler Mitch Starc and niece of former wicketkeeper Ian Healy. 4 time world champion Australia will be looking at her for fireworks at top of the innings every time they take the field.
