If Smriti Mandhana is fit for the match, no doubt she will be the first-choice opener and captain of my Dream 11 team. Renuka Thakur has shown her skills with the new ball. Rajeshwari Gayakwad too can be a game-changer with her left arm-off spin. Let’s take a look at my predicted Dream 11 team:
Shafali Verma/ Smriti Mandhana, Javeria Khan, Harmanpreet Kaur (C), Nida Dar, Deepti Sharma, Ayesha Naseem, Richa Ghosh (wk), Omaima Sohail, Sneh Rana, Rajeshwari Gaikwad, Renuka Singh.
Both the teams will be aiming for a winning start in the multi-nation tournament for they will be facing challenges from former champions England and West Indies along with Ireland.
