The Women’s Premier League 2024 has come to an end with Royal Challengers Bangalore deservingly taking home the prized trophy. It was a hard-fought victory as the Bangalore-based franchise kept their nerves right till the end to chase down the mediocre total set by Delhi Capitals in the final. 

All five teams gave it their everything during the second edition of the tournament. The teams had some key players who were always delivering the goods for the side but never really got appreciated for their consistency. Let’s take a look at some of the players who turned out to be the unsung heroes for their team in this edition of the tournament.

Here are the unsung heroes of WPL 2024:

The bowler was picked by the Royal Challengers Bangalore for INR 10 Lakh in the inaugural edition of the Women’s Premier League. Asha Shobana could only manage five games in the opening edition and claimed as many wickets at a high economy of 8.35. She showed that she had the skills that were needed to perform at the highest level possible.

Royal Challengers Bangalore showed their faith in the leg-spinner by retaining her for the second season of the Women’s Premier League. She was able to repay the faith by claiming 12 wickets and was also one of the first players to take a fifer in this edition of the WPL. Her performances during the crucial junctures of the game helped her franchise a lot in clinching close encounters.
