5 Must-Have Players in the Squad
S Mandhana, S Verma, D Dottin, E Bisht, and S Ecclestone.
VEL vs TRA Team Wicket-Keeper
S Verma (Price 8) will be the wicket-keeper of our team. Both keepers are not expected to make much impact in the game but, Verma played a really sensible knock in the last game and helped in the team’s cause.
VEL vs TRA Team Batsmen
S Mandhana (Price 10.5) will be our batter from Trailblazers. Smriti has been one of India’s biggest match-winners in recent times and is an un-droppable option. She is a wonderful left-handed player and can change the game on her own.
S Verma (Price 9.5) and M Raj (Price 9) will be our batters from Trailblazers. Verma is the opener of the team and she proved her class in the last T20 World Cup where she was the leading run-scorer of the side. Shafali was looking brilliant in the last game as well and would like to make it big this time around whereas, Raj means consistency, she is a Legend of the game and one of the most technically sound players. Although, she struggled in the last game but she is a wonderful player.
VEL vs TRA Team All-Rounders
D Dottin (Price 10) and D Sharma (Price 9) will be our all-rounders from the Trailblazers. Dottin is a brilliant all-rounder from West Indies and was the highest run-scorer in the recent T20I series against England. She is a wonderful wicket-taker as well whereas, Deepti is India’s underrated assassin. She scored at an average of 38.67 in the last T20 World-Cup and has also picked 53 T20I wickets in 48 games. Both of them are brilliant players.
VEL vs TRA Team Bowlers
L Kasperek (Price 9), E Bisht (Price 8.5), and J Alam (Price 8.5) will be our bowlers from the Velocity. All three of them are International level spinners and proved their quality on this slow Sharjah track in the last game. Ekta picked 3 wickets whereas, Kasperek and Alam picked a couple each. They are going to play a crucial part in this game.
S Ecclestone (Price 9.5) and R Gayakwad (Price 8.5) will be our bowlers from the Trailblazers. Ecclestone is a world-class bowler from England and has picked 56 T20I wickets in her career whereas, Gayakwad is yet another gem from India with 35 T20I wickets under her belt. Both of the left-arm spinners are going to get a lot of help from this ground.
