AUS-W VS PAK-W, 9TH T20I PROBABLE TOP PERFORMERS
PROBABLE BEST BATTER
The Australian skipper roared back to form in their second match of the tournament with a scintillating unbeaten 36 off 21 deliveries to put the failure in the first match behind her. The second leading run-getter in the format, she would want to continue her belligerence with the bat.

Young Aussie leg spinner Alana King had the Barbadian batters on the ropes with her masterful spin bowling and was a whisker away from claiming a hat-trick as she returned with incredible bowling figures of 4/8 in her four overs.
