Senior Women's One Day League: Elite Group A Round-up
Punjab Women's Cricket Team (3 Wins in 5 Matches)
Harmanpreet Kaur is the only name that strikes our memory whenever we hear about Punjab Women's Cricket. Unfortunately, she is not going to represent Punjab this domestic season due to her prior commitments to the Women's Big Bash League.
It is a good thing that they have stand-in captain Taniya Bhatia taking her place. Coming out of the Harmanpreet's shadow, Taniya Bhatia would be eager to hone her captaincy skills.
As far as her leadership capabilities are concerned, Taniya Bhatia has shown a lot of maturity in her work. Winning 3 out of 5 matches they played so far, Punjab Women have shown the potential to maintain the lead.
However, Punjab owes its major share of success to the opener Rasia Akhter. She has been consistent with the bat this season. Her significant contributions include a 76 against Saurashtra Women and 62 runs off 42 balls against Vidarbha. Her quick scores at the start of the game have played a vital role in Punjab's success.
With three quality pacers in the team and international experience of Taniya Bhatia, Punjab has the potential to pull themselves up in the points table.
