UP Warriorz (UPW) Playing 11:

Parshavi Chopra might be another spinner in the starting 11. Chopra is a leggie and the wasecond-highestighest wicket-taker of the women’s under-19 CWC 2023.
- Shabnim Ismail Anjali Sarvani may execute some raw pace for the UP Warriorz. Sarvani is a left-arm pacer and already debuted for India.
