Top Picks – Birmingham Phoenix Women
Amy Jones has shown that she has already got a flavour of the new format. In the four matches, she has managed to score 107 runs at a strike rate of around 165.
Shafali Verma is an extremely talented player and she is perfectly suited for the format. She hasn’t really got going in this series so far, but we can expect her to find her footing soon.
Top Picks – Oval Invincibles Women
Dane van Niekerk has been at her absolute best in this tournament so far. She has managed to score 120 runs in the four matches so far. Apart from that, she has also been excellent with the ball, taking four wickets.
Alice Capsey has bowled well in this tournament picking up three wickets. But her contribution of 85 runs with the bat has been more valuable for her side. She would want to continue her good form.

BPH-W vs OVI-W Risky Captaincy Choices:
Issy Wong bats quite low in the order, but she has been phenomenal with the ball. She will be a risky captaincy pick.
Abtaha Maqsood has taken two wickets from four matches, but can be a bit inconsistent at times. It will be risky to pick her as the captain.
