In fact, 3 of the 5 captains of the franchises in WPL 2023 are foreign players.

The Orange Cap is given to the player with the most runs in an edition of WPL. In this article, we take a look at 3 foreign players who could win the Orange Cap in WPL 2023:

1. Hayley Matthews (Mumbai Indians)

Even though the women’s cricket team of West Indies is plagued by several issues and controversies, Hayleys Matthews has emerged as a true match-winner from the Caribbean. She has been an integral part of Mumbai Indians, both with the bat as well as with the ball.

She is presently sitting in the 2nd position in the list of most runs in WPL 2023 and has mustered 156 runs in 3 games. Matthews has a blistering average of 78.00. Since Hayley Matthews also opens for Mumbai, she has a solid chance of winning the Orange Cap.

2. Meg Lanning (Delhi Capitals)

The skipper of Delhi Capitals, opening batter Meg Lanning is another strong contender for the Orange Cap in WPL 2023. Meg Lanning is presently the highest run-getter in WPL 2023 and has been oozing consistency and class with her willow.

Lanning has so far notched up 185 runs in 3 games and looks in supreme touch. She has been shouldering the responsibilities of captaining a side really well and has been opening the batting for Delhi Capitals.

3. Tahlia McGrath (UP Warriorz)

Even though Tahlia McGrath bats in the middle-order, we feel that she has a solid chance of providing stiff competition to the players upfront for the Orange Cap. In the previous game of UP Warriorz, McGrath blasted her way to an unbeaten 90* run knock is just 50 deliveries.

McGrath is a buccaneering batter and she has the ability to smear the bowlers all across the park. Even though UP were on the losing side against Delhi Capitals despite that superhuman effort of Tahlia McGrath, her innings was a big statement in ways more than one.
