Top Tournament Stats - Fairbreak Global Invitational Women's T20 2023
Warriors vs Sapphires, Match 2
Sapphires have a number of well-known names in their squad. While they might be slightly past their prime, they can still win a game on their own, subject to proper practice and fitness withholding.
Katherine Sciver-Brunt (England), Sana Mir (Pakistan), Elyse Villani (Australia), Shabnim Ismail (South Africa), Gaby Lewis (Ireland), Erin Burns (Australia) and Tash Farrant (England) are their main signings.
Shabnim Ismail's pace will be a handful to face for the opposition batters. Elyse Villani is expected to be the team's top scorer.
The player of the tournament and the Purple Cap winner in the recently concluded WPL, Hayley Matthews is one of the biggest and most in-form players in one's cricket at the moment and the Warriors will expect her to carry on with her purple patch.
Matthews is generally burdened by expectations in the Windies team, but given a chance to play her attacking game, she can really turn it up as an opener. Her off-breaks are also more than handy as we got to see in the WPL final.
Mignon Du Preez's international career might be over but she still has a lot of cricket left in her and will be a good accomplice to Matthews.
Warriors: Sindhu Sriharsha (USA), Kathryn Bryce (Scotland), Hayley Matthews (West Indies), Esha Oza (UAE), Mignon Du Preez (South Africa), Shamilia Connell (West Indies), Tanya Ruma (PNG), Yasmeen Khan (Namibia), Shanzeen Shahzad (Hong Kong), Mariana Martinez (Argentina)
Sapphires: Katherine Sciver-Brunt (England), Sana Mir (Pakistan), Elyse Villani (Australia), Kary Chan (Hong Kong), Shabnim Ismail (South Africa), Geetika Kodali (USA), Maryam Omar (Kuwait), Gaby Lewis (Ireland), Erin Burns (Australia), Tash Farrant (England), Babette de Leede (Netherlands), Aditi Chaudasama (USA) and Jivana Aras (USA)

Barmy Army vs Team Spirit, Match 3
Barmy Army have Lauren Winfield and Laura Wolvaardt as their main batters. Winfield's career graph may have gone down of late but she remains a game changer. The explosive opener still has the ability to affect the result of a given match on her day.
Wolvaardt has shown in the last T20 World Cup and the WPL that she is much more than a 'proper' batter and has the ability to up the ante when needed. The copybook cover drives are of course a treat to watch.
Pakistan's Fatima Sana and USA's Tara Morris are the leading bowlers for the side. All-rounder Deandra Dottin is also expected to play a major role.
Team Spirit have Nicola Carey and Bismah Maroof as their main players. Carey has not been getting consistent opportunities for Australia of late but remains a great line and length bowler. Her exploits with the bat are also under-rated.
Pakistan skipper Bismah Maroof showed in the last T20 WC what she is capable of and is likely to be the top run-scorer for the side.
Ayabonga Khaka from South Africa, Sarah Bryce from Scotland, Nattaya Boochantham and Natthakhan Chantam from Thailand and Mahika Gaur from UAE are the other key players for Team Spirit.
Barmy Army: Lauren Winfield (England), Laura Wolvaardt (South Africa), Kavisha Egodage (UAE), Fatima Sana (Pakistan), Tara Morris (USA), Rubina Chhetry (Nepal), Ruchi Venkatesh (Hong Kong), Deandra Dottin (West Indies), Shemaine Campbelle (West Indies), Rumana Ahmed (Bangladesh), Roberta Avery (Brazil), Laura Cardoso (Brazil), Iqra Sahar (Hong Kong) and Nigar Joty (Bangladesh)
Team Spirit: Nicola Carey (Australia), Bismah Maroof (Pakistan), Shizuka Miyaji (Japan), Ayabonga Khaka (South Africa), Yasmin Daswani (Hong Kong), Betty Chan (Hong Kong), Sarah Bryce (Scotland), Natthakhan Chantam (Thailand), Nattaya Boochantham (Thailand), Gargi Bhogle (USA), Mahika Gaur (UAE) and Kerry Tomlinson (New Zealand)
