Harmanpreet Kaur: Perhaps the hardest hitter of a cricketing ball in women’s cricket, Harmanpreet Kaur will look to start with all guns blazing. She averages 29.57 in T20I’s for the 2018-19 season and has also scored a century against New Zeland in that time.
Stafanie Taylor: For someone to be the leading run-scorer and wicket-taker in the same Tournament, it takes some doing. Taylor managed to achieve this in the first edition of the WCSL scoring 289 runs and claiming 11 wickets.
