Top 5 / Top 10

Starting just a few hours before the men's tournament, the 2016 Women's World T20 in 2016 is likely to be a battle between two Trans-Tasman rivals. Australia will be looking for their fourth successive Women's World T20 trophy, while their rivals from across the sea look like the team most likely to stop them from achieving that milestone.Even though the tournament is likely to be out two teams for the title, there might also be quite a few surprises in store that no one sees coming. The tournament will also feature some of the finest T20 players the women's game has ever produced.So let us take a look at the 5 best players to watch out for:

#5 Shabnim Ismail

The South African fast bowler might have been around for almost nine years but it is only recently that she has finally managed to garner some spotlight thanks to her experience and ability to bowl a variety of deliveries. Although the hitting in the women’s game is nowhere near as brutal, it still takes a brave person to be a fast bowler in the death overs and after years of practice, Shabnim Ismail has finally managed to perfect the art of getting the batsman to play into where she wants.

Although South Africa aren’t one of the favourites, they are many people’s dark horses and that is thanks largely to their bowling attack, which has shown they can defend pretty much anything. And it is no surprise that it is Ismali who is leading the attack.
