Deepti Sharma provides fantasy points either way. She made it to the Ultimate Team with figures of 2 for 15 in the opening game and a knock of 64 against the UAE in the last game.
Tuba Hassan has been generating fantasy points with both wickets and economy. The wicket at Sylhet has suited her leg-breaks, fetching her 4 wickets at an economy of 3.6 RPO.
Dayalan Hemalatha has picked the bulk of the wickets for India. Her 4 wickets include an impressive three-wicket haul against Sri Lanka. In addition to her bowling heroics, she adds valuable runs at the death with her aggressive batting.
Since 2018, Bismah Maroof has scored 99 runs at 25 against India. She is yet to make headlines in this edition, but in a game like this, the veteran will give her all to put a price on her wicket.
The off-spin duo of Nida Dar and Umaima Sohail has grabbed 8 wickets between them. Although India have been good against spinners, they will be mindful of the sharp turn we have witnessed in the middle overs.
With 151 runs at an incredible strike rate of 154, Jemimah Rodrigues is the highest run-scorer of the tournament. She has been incredible in the format of late, smashing 350 runs at an average of 70 in the last 10 professional T20s.
Sidra Ameen has featured in the Ultimate Team in all three games, having registered scores of 31, 36*, and 56. In the only T20I she has played against India, she managed 26 runs including three fours.
Smriti Mandhana and Harmanpreet Kaur both have been in great form this year. Between them, they have hammered 666 runs at an average of 35.
Fantasy Tip of The Day
The pitch has been conducive for spinners through and through. However, if batted with caution, it favours the batters too.
