For the first time since 1998, cricket will be played in the Commonwealth Games. There is a difference though. 24 years ago, the matches were played in ODI format but this time the matches will be played in T20 format. Also, not to forget, in the late ’90s, Men’s teams played in the games. This time around, with an already packed schedule of male cricketers, they are not participating in the showpiece event.
Women’s teams from Australia, England, New Zealand, India, Pakistan, South Africa, and Barbados will play in the tournament. Teams such as Australia, England, and India are the biggest contenders for the podium. However, with T20 cricket being a fragile format, anything can happen. Meanwhile, in this listicle, we will discuss three players who can be leading wicket-takers in the tournament.
The left-arm spinner from India is one of the most lethal spinners in the women’s game. In the era when other finger spinners try to escape getting for runs and try to be economical in white-ball cricket, she tries to get wickets.
The Karnataka has played 36 games and has 45 wickets to her name. Talking about her bowling average, she picks one wicket for just 18 runs and has a strike rate of 16.9 and economy rate of 6.38. With such numbers, she can be the one to watch out for.
