The Women’s Big Bash League 2023 is all set to bring a lot of joy and excitement into our lives as the best set of women players across the globe will be a part of this tournament. The cricket standards in this tournament will be quite high and we can expect some high-voltage action and entertainment in this tournament.
Women’s Big Bash League 2023 has been truncated this time and the matches have been reduced. This clearly means that the matches will be more intense, electrifying and high-octane.
Several superstars of women’s cricket will be involved in this tournament and we can expect some fireworks from both the batters and the bowlers in this Women’s Big Bash League 2023.
In this article, we take a look at the top 5 players to watch out for in the Women’s Big Bash League 2023:
1. Hayley Matthews (Melbourne Renegades)
One of the best all-rounders in world cricket, Hayley Matthews is easily an asset for any T20 team. She will be an integral part of the Melbourne Renegades team and can easily be one of the reasons why the Renegades might be strong favourites in this tournament.
In the recently-concluded T20I series between Australia women and West Indies women. Hayley Matthews was adjudged the player of the series for her all-round prowess. In the 3 matches, she mustered 310 runs and bagged 5 wickets.
2. Beth Mooney (Perth Scorchers)
An integral part of the Australian women’s squad, Beth Mooney can be one of the top performers in the upcoming Women’s Big Bash League 2023. She was the leading run-scorer in the previous edition of the tournament with 434 runs.
If Mooney performs well and fires on all cylinders, we can expect Perth Scorchers to perform well in this tournament. All eyes will be on Beth Mooney, who has scored 2508 runs in T20I cricket for Australia.
3. Megan Schutt (Adelaide Strikers)
With 27 wickets in the Women’s Big Bash League 2022, Megan Schutt had lit up the entire tournament with her exemplary bowling. She was one of the main reasons why Adelaide Strikers had won the tournament in the previous edition.
Megan Schutt had an excellent average of 13.07 in the previous edition of the tournament and we can expect her to play well in this tournament as well.
4. Tahlia McGrath (Adelaide Strikers)
Skipper of Adelaide Strikers, Tahlia McGrath can be one of the top performers in this edition of the Women’s Big Bash League 2022. She would be hoping that her side successfully defends the title under her astute captaincy.
In 33 T20Is, Tahlia McGrath has 798 runs in her kitty and 15 wickets under her belt.
5. Tammy Beaumont (Melbourne Renegades)
Former English cricketer Tammy Beaumont plies her trade for Melbourne Renegades and is a top performer for them. She would be hoping to play well in this tournament and guide the Renegades to a title in this elite competition.
In 99 T20Is, Beaumont had amassed 1721 runs, with a highest score of 116. Her 116-run knock came against South Africa women in 2018 and in that game, she had smashed a 47-ball 100.
