Players to watch out for and why
On the English side, HC Knight is certainly a batsman to look out for. With two 50s and 163 runs made in the last 3 matches, she has emerged as the champion of the English batting order in the series. Another player would be NR Sciver, who has proven to be a valuable all-rounder in this series. With 4 wickets so far and a half-century in her last match, she will be someone to watch out.
Australian side has a rather fluctuating batting order in this series, but BL Mooney’s 65 runs in the first match proved her strength. EA Perry has taken 5 wickets and made 67 runs in two matches, establishing herself as a dependable all-rounder.
