The operations of the inaugural edition of the Women’s Premier League have been up and running. The WPL 2023 auction is slated to be held on February 13. The marquee event will witness established performers of the T20 circuit go under the hammer and franchises might even break their bank to acquire them.
However, the player auction will not be all about top-quality international stars and many shining stars of the recently concluded ICC Women's Under-19 T20 World Cup 2023 will also feature at the marquee event. Among them, there are certain players who might garner a lot of attention in the bidding arena.
Here are U-19 World Cup 2023 stars who can fetch big bucks at the auction
5. Shorna Akter
Shorna Akter set the Women's Under-19 T20 World Cup 2023 ablaze with her jaw-dropping performances. She destroyed the bowling attacks that came her way and stamped her authority on the cricket field. The 16-year-old featured in five games for Bangladesh and hammered 153 runs at a breathtaking strike rate of 157.73.
Akter was remarkable in the opening game of the T20 extravaganza against Australia and played a high-pressure knock of 23* runs off 18 balls to her team across the line. Then when Bangladesh faced Sri Lanka in the 10th game of the competition, she hammered the opposition’s bowlers all across the park and scored a blistering half-century off 28 deliveries.
Akter plays a fearless brand of cricket and takes the attack to the opposition right from the get-go. Moreover, she is quite handy with the ball. Her addition will add depth to any side and many franchises might ponder over investing in the right-handed batter at the WPL 2023 auction.
