5 players to watch out for in the first semi-finals of the ICC Women's T20 World Cup for 2020 are as follows:
#1 Heather Knight
The England team bounced back strongly after losing their opening game against South Africa. Heather Knight led from the front as she scored an unbeaten century in their second game against Thailand. She followed that up with a half-century in the next game against Pakistan which England won by 42 runs. However, Knight missed out in the last group game against the Windies as she was dismissed for 17 runs.

In the tournament so far Knight has scored 193 runs at an average of 64.33. Prior to the World Cup, Knight had an impressive run in the Tri-Nation Series which comprised of Australia, India and England. She is also the first female cricketer to score a century in all three formats of the game.
Apart from her batting, Knight is also very handy with the ball and is definitely a player to watch out for. The Indian bowlers will be looking to dismiss her early in the innings.
