IND-W vs AUS-W, Final Probable Top Performers

Smriti Mandhana:

Smriti Mandhana is peaking at the right time in the ongoing Commonwealth Games 2022. The star opener has already registered two half-centuries to her name and the big one came against England where she scored 61 runs off 32 deliveries at an outstanding strike rate of 190.6. She would be hoping to showcase a much better performance in the grand finale.

Probable best bowler

Renuka Singh Thakur:

This has been a dream tournament for emerging pace sensation Renuka Singh Thakur. She might have gone wicketless in the semifinal against England but has registered nine scalps to her name so far in four matches including two four-wicket hauls. The Indian eves would be expecting Renuka to come out all guns blazing with the ball in hand against Australia in the summit clash.
