Women Big Bash League: Story Of Indian Cricketers

During the 2021-22 season of the Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL), which was played in Australia, as many as eight Indian players took part. For the 2021–22 season, the Indian team had the most players to choose from, just like other foreign teams.

  • Read on to find out how the Indians did in the Women’s Big Bash League in the 2021-22 season:
  1. Harmanpreet Kaur (Melbourne Renegades) –

According to big bash latest news today, Harmanpreet Kaur, who is also the captain of India’s Twenty20 International team, was named Player of the Tournament. She was the best at both hitting and bowling for the Melbourne Renegades during their successful run to the playoffs. Kaur won the tournament because she had the highest strike rate (130.96), scored the most runs (406), and hit the most sixes (18). She won three games with scores of 50 or more. Her right-arm off-breaks were good enough to get 15 outs at a rate of 7.45 runs per over. Several of her outs came during the Powerplay, which changed the game, and in the last few overs. She was the only member of either the Indians or the Renegades to make the WBBL Team of the Tournament. This was because of how well she did in every way.

  1. Jemimah Rodrigues (Melbourne Renegades) –

Jemimah Rodrigues, who played with Kaur for the Renegades, went to the plate by scoring 333 runs and scored an average of 27.75 runs per game. Rodrigues was able to contribute as the opener even though her strike rate was only 116.43. Her unbeaten 75 off 56 runs against Sydney Thunder earned her the Player of the Match award. Six times during her 13 innings of work, Rodrigues would have liked to turn those great starts into big runs and take control of the season (with scores ranging from 13 to 27).

  1. Smriti Mandhana (Sydney Thunder) –

The Renegades lost by four runs, but not before India’s fiery opener Smriti Mandhana scored 114 runs without getting out in 64 balls. She was the first Indian player in the WBBL to get to 100 runs. The left-handed left-44-ball hander got a score of 64, but it wasn’t enough to save her from a close loss to the Gades. She still felt bad about it. Mandhana led Sydney Thunder in runs scored with 377 at a strike rate of 130.44, even though she had a rough start to the competition. Even though she got off to a bad start, Mandhana scored the most runs for Sydney Thunder. She also helped Sydney Thunder win two of their four games by scoring the most runs.

  1. Deepti Sharma (Sydney Thunder) –

Deepti Sharma, an all-rounder who played for the Sydney Thunder, was a shining star in an otherwise disappointing season. Even though Sharma batted last on her team, she scored 211 runs and had a 35.16 batting average, which was good enough for third place on her team. She is second on Thunder’s all-time list of wickets with 13, and her economy rate of 7.15 also puts her in second place on that list. During Thunder’s first two league wins, she took six wickets and only let 38 runs through in just eight overs.

  1. Shafali Verma (Sydney Sixers) –  

Shafali Verma had a great start to the competition with a stunning runout and a great 50-ball 57, but she was never able to get back on track for the rest of the competition. The Sydney Sixers had a hard time during Verma’s first season in the WBBL. She had a 17.36 batting average and a 105.52 strike rate, and over the course of 12 innings, she scored 191 runs. The Sixers’ terrible season ended with a string of six straight losses because of her bad play.

  1. Radha Yadav (Sydney Sixers) –

Radha had the second-most wickets for the Sixers that season, and she also took a great catch at the point that got a lot of attention. During the middle overs, she bowled very well, which helped keep the score low (6.81 runs per over) and helped her get nine wickets. The 21-year-old was a tough hitter at the bottom of his team’s lineup. He scored 43 runs in five innings, which is an average of 21.3 runs per inning, even though his team’s score stayed in the 90s.

  1. Richa Ghosh (Hobart Hurricanes) –   

Even though she was just 18, the young lady performed really well for the WBBL in their multi-format series versus Australia. The Hobart Hurricanes got off to a strong start as a result of this. At the end of the series, Ghosh had a total of 162 runs scored and a strike rate of 95.29. In the first two games of the series, she scored 67 runs, but in the next 10 games of the series, she only added 95 more runs to her total. The middle-order batter’s immaculate 16-ball, 24-run cameo in a game-winning run chase was the highlight of the competition; nevertheless, she was removed from the game after it after she scored 13 runs in the last five innings.

  1. Poonam Yadav (Brisbane Heat) –  

Leg spinner Poonam Yadav, who plays for the Brisbane Heat and has a lot of experience, did not have a very good season. This is especially surprising when you consider that three of the top five wicket-takers in the WBBL 2021 are spinners. Poonam didn’t do too badly in the tournament. She took 10 wickets and gave up an average of 6.63 runs per over. However, her international reputation required that she do more. She got off to a good start in the season by taking four wickets in each of the first two games. Against Sydney Thunder, she won the game by taking three wickets for 17 runs. Even with these two appearances, Poonam was only able to take three wickets in 10 games, and her last overs let more than nine runs be scored each time.
