Players to watch in ICC Women’s World T20 2018
Nov.9 (CRICKETNMORE) - his November will see constellations descend on the Caribbean, with each team in the ICC Women’s World T20 fielding multiple stars. The world’s best players are the heart of this event, the first ever stand-alone Women’s World T20. Here’s a look at some of the top players from all the teams who are likely to light up this competition:
There are few players as dangerous as Healy when she gets going, and her form off late has been stupendous. In the last two series Australia have played, she has five half centuries across eight international innings in both formats, one of them close to a hundred. With the likes of Meg Lanning and Ellyse Perry in Australia’s middle order, Healy will have license to go for her shots from ball one in the Caribbean. Adapting to the conditions will be the challenge for her, both in front of and behind the stumps.
While all the talk is of how spinners are likely to be a big factor in the West Indies, one medium pacer might disagree. Schutt already has a T20I hat trick this year, and she’s been consistent enough to claim the No. 1 spot in the MRF Tyres ICC Women’s T20I rankings. With her ability to shape the ball in to the right hander, she’s always a threat, and she has added a few changes of pace to her bag of tricks. If there’s some grip on offer, watch out for that leg cutter.
