The poor batting performance was the main reason behind New Zealand’s big defeats in their first two games against Australia Women and South Africa Women. However, the team did not see the same fate for the third consecutive time courtesy of Suzie Bates. The opening batter was absolutely lethal against Bangladesh Women as she hammered the bowlers all over the park. Batting first, New Zealand scored 189 runs in their allotted 20 overs. Bates emerged as the top run-getter for her team with a massive knock of 81 runs off 61 balls. During her innings, she hit seven boundaries and one maximum. Bates also has the backing of a glorious international career in the shortest format of the game. She has donned the national jersey in 140 T20 Internationals so far, collecting 3716 runs at an average of 29.49 and a strike rate of 109.62.

Sri Lanka will be hoping to gain back the momentum in the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2023 after losing their last match to Australia Women by ten wickets. In their journey towards a comeback, the 24-year-old batter Harshita Samarawickrama is expected to play a big role. She is currently the top run-scorer for the island nation with 111 runs in three matches at a remarkable average of 55.50. The opening batter did not start the tournament on a good note as she scored only eight runs in the opening game against South Africa Women. However, she made it up with an impressive not out 69 run knock against Bangladesh Women as the Sri Lanka chased 127 runs. Harshita Samarawickrama was decent against Australia as well as she added 34 runs to the scoreboard off 40 balls.

Eden Carson was the person who helped New Zealand Women record their first win against Bangladesh Women. The Tigers Women had a target of 190 runs in the second innings to chase. They started well but could not stand for long in the middle because of Carson’s exceptional bowling. The 21-year-old picked up three wickets while giving away only 18 runs in her four overs at an economy rate of 4.5. Overall, the spinner has picked five wickets in the three games at an average of 10.80 and she is the top wicket-taker for the Blackcaps Women.
