WPL 2023: Women’s cricket has evolved to be one of the fastest-growing sports in the world. People across all cricketing nations are widely gathering to show their full support for women’s football. Many comprehensive performers are now presenting their best efforts to excel in the game. And out of these performers, many are the bowlers who have proven to be efficient game-winners for their teams. 

Let’s take a look at the five prospects and see who can be the best among the rest in WPL 2023: 

5. Sophie Ecclestone

The English spinner has been a real bowling sensation throughout the last few years. She has constantly been placed at the No. 1 spot in the T20i bowling rankings and is known not only for picking up crucial wickets but also for maintaining an awesome economy rate in the shorter format, which is unlikely in the usual course of play. Moreover, the subcontinent pitches add to a spinner’s antics. Ecclestone, playing for the UP Warriors, is expected to excel in the WPL.

4. Meghan Schutt

The experienced Australian seamer proved his worth even more in the T20 World Cup and was the anchor of the Aussie bowling attack. Schutt is currently ranked 6th in the world T20I bowling rankings and is one of the finest death bowlers in the world. Schutt is also one of the fastest bowlers in women’s cricket, which is a rare find in their format. Schutt playing for RCB would be a sight to behold for the first time in the WPL.

3. Shabnim Ismail

Ismail is the most experienced player on our list; she has been a comprehensive performer throughout all formats, playing for her nation and several franchises all over the world. Ismail has again proved to be a legit performer in the T20 World Cup, even after succumbing to injuries in the recent past. Ismail is a part of the UP Warriorz in WPL 2023 and is expected to do well as she produces great yorkers and a great variety of other deliveries, which include the knuckleball. 

2. Marizanne Kapp

The protea all-rounder is a strange inclusion to the list, as she is one of the most complete all-rounders in women’s cricket. She is currently the best bowler both at the start and end of the innings. Though she is known for picking more wickets than being economical, she is apt for what is required of a perfect T20 bowler. DC would rely on this star performer, who has an upper hand in bowling along with his impressive contribution as a batsman. 

1. Renuka Singh

The Indian seam bowling sensation has been India’s star performer in bowling. Renuka Singh has delivered some great performances in recent years and is known to be a comprehensive performer for both India and the RCB. Renuka has even starred in this year’s ICC Women’s T20 Team of the Year due to her splendid performance in T20I last year in 2022. Pairing with world-class bowlers like Schutt will be an even bigger learning experience for her, and she will emerge as an even more complete cricketer. She will be an incredible asset for her team in the WPL 2023.
