None of the New Zealand batters have impressed in the T20 World Cup so far. However, if there is one player who can change things for the Kiwis, it has to be Suzie Bates. The opening batter has a tremendous experience in international cricket and she is one of the most talented players in her team. In her international career of over a decade, the 35-year-old has represented New Zealand in 139 T20 Internationals. She has accumulated 3635 runs at an average of 28.85 and a strike rate of 109.19. Bates has not shown any character in the tournament so far as she was dismissed for a duck in the two games against Australia Women and South Africa Women.

The middle-order batter Nigar Sultana will have the responsibility of scoring runs for Bangladesh Women on Friday and taking them to their win in the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2023. Bangladesh batters underperformed in their last game against Australia Women by scoring only 107 runs. Amidst all the poor performances, Sultana was the only positive for the team. The skipper led from the front with a knock of 57 runs off 50 balls, including seven boundaries and one maximum at a strike rate of 114. Moreover, she has a good international record under her belt, with 1310 runs in 71 T20 Internationals at an average of over 25. We are backing the 25-year-old to do well on Friday and be the top batter for the Tigers Women.
