1. Smriti Mandhana
The 22-year-old left-handed opener, Smriti Mandhana has set the world on fire with her innovative and aggressive batting at the top of the order. Mandhana has been amazing for India and was one of the best attractions in the Women’s World Cup 2017, where she cracked a 90 against host England and a century against West Indies. In 50 ODIs, she has scored 1951 runs at an average of 42.41 with four centuries with the best score of 135 and 19 half-centuries to her name at an impressive strike rate of 83.51.
She has gone from strength to strength, becoming the lynchpin of Indian batting lineup with Mithali, Deepti, and Harmanpreet. She has also become a global star participating in T20 leagues in England and Australia. Truly a wonderful batter to partner perhaps the most devastating Indian opener in men’s game.
