One such serious candidate who will be looking to settle in the WPL while continuing to impress on the international stage is Danielle Nicole Wyatt. Wyatt, who was promoted to opener of the English women’s T20I side did impress heavily. Several innings after her promotion in the batting line-up, she went on to hit 100 off 57 balls which paved the way for England’s spirited victory. In her 150 WT20Is, she has scored a total of 2602 runs at a strike rate of 127.42. This is an addition to her shining crowns she has already shattered some handful of centuries in the shortest form of the game.

3. Chamari Athapaththu:

As a captain of the Sri Lanka national team, Chamari Athapaththu has served for a decade and is thus a veteran figure of the team. Upon first playing India in her T20I debut in the year 2009, she left a striking footprint with her general competence. Without her, neither international cricket nor WBBL cricket would be close to as much of a success as it is today, and her achievements have been remarkable. Given the number of funds she has scored 1063 runs and grabbed 13 wickets in 51 matches,. She is bound to be one of the sought-after players due to her having won the WBBL 2023 Player of the Tournament.

4. Titas Sadhu:

WPL 2024 has a new star player, Titas Sadhu from the Indian cricket team. The right-arm seamer has been progressing with a swing of the ball and troubling even the most experienced of the bats. Her impressive displays in domestic cricket have ensured that she gets included in the WPL, and Sadhu will have to show what she can achieve on a bigger platform. The incredible bowling spell of 4-1-6-3 in the Asian Games final and consistent clutch performances including a 3-wicket haul in a multi-nation tournament brings comparisons with the legendary pacer Jhulan Goswami.

5. Phoebe Litchfield:
