Mumbai Indians shelled out INR 3.2 crore for England all-rounder Nat Sciver-Brunt and head coach Charlotte Edwards will expect her compatriot to justify her hefty price tag. If the recently concluded World Cup was anything to go by, she is worth all that and much more.
Yastika Bhatia and Hayley Matthews are likely to open for MI, with captain Harmanpreet Kaur featuring in the middle order.
The all-round ability of Amelia Kerr, Amanjot Kaur and Pooja Vastrakar will keep them in good stead.
MI picked Issy Wong in the auction but her raw pace can prove to be a double edged sword. One out of Sonam Yadav and Saika Ishaque is likely to play for MI.
Gujarat Giants have already named Beth Mooney as their captain. Mooney was the star of Australia’s successful campaign at the recently concluded World Cup. Sabbineni Meghana will partner Mooney at the top of the order.
Gujarat’s middle order will consist of Harleen Deol, Ash Gardner, D Hemalatha and Deandra Dottin. Dottin can also open if the need arises.
In Ash Gardner, D Hemalatha, Deandra Dottin, Annabel Sutherland, Sneh Rana and Hurley Gala, GG have a plethora of all-rounders which will help them balance their team quite well.
Gujarat Giants: Ash Gardner, Sneh Rana, Beth Mooney (c), Georgia Wareham, Annabel Sutherland, Sophia Dunkley, Deandra Dottin, Hurley Gala, Sushma Verma, Tanuja Kanwar, Harleen Deol, Ashwani Kumari, S Meghana, Mansi Joshi, D Hemalatha, Monica Patel, Parunika Sisodia, Shabnam Shakil
Mumbai Indians: Harmanpreet Kaur (c), Amanjot Kaur, Hayley Matthews, Heather Graham, Issy Wong, Chloe Tryon, Priyanka Bala, Dhara Gujjar, Saika Ishaque, Humairaa Kaazi, Sonam Yadav, Jintimani Kalita, Neelam Bisht, Nat Sciver-Brunt, Pooja Vastrakar, Yastika Bhatia, Amelia Kerr
