Just 5 days to go for the ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup 2022, and today we are going look at the 5 bowlers who could possibly be the game changers for their respective sides. In the last segment, we discussed about 5 batters and now its time the bowlers.

Tahlia McGrath 

In the last few months, Australia’s  pacer Tahlia McGrath has  grabbed her opportunity in a wonderful season of international cricket in the Australian summers, named as the player of the series in the 2022 women’s Ashes. The Australian bowler is all set to play a key role in Australia’s title aspirations at the Women’s Cricket World Cup 2022 in New Zealand.

Sophie Eccleston 

World number two on the ICC’s ODI bowler rankings, Sophie Ecclestone  will be a major weapon in England’s team  as they strive to retain the title they claimed back 5 years back. Since that famous triumph at Lord’s five years ago, Ecclestone has taken 52 wickets, only South Africa’s Shabnim Ismail has more, and with a  economy rate of just 3.7, she is undoubtedly one the best spin bowlers in the women’s game at the moment.

Amelia Kerr 

Amelia Kerr is the second-youngest player in New Zealand’s squad for the ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup 2022 , behind 17-year-old Fran Jonas . She was also the part of the list of tge Women batters to look out for in the tournament.

Kerr’s ability as an all-rounder makes her even more dangerous. Her five innings of 4+ wickets is the joint-most by any New Zealand player in women’s ODI history . One of those hauls came at a previous Cricket World Cup (4-51 vs. England – 12 July 2017). If Kerr can claim a second such haul at this tournament, she would become just the second player from New Zealand to do so multiple times after Jackie Lord.

Jhulan Goswami

The veteran fast bowler is all set to play her last ICC tournament. She has been scintillating for the blues over the years. She is the leading wicket taker in the one day format of the game. She is also regarded as the one of the greatest fast bowler of all time. He has took 240 wickets in 192 games with two 5 wicket hauls. The average has been amazing, just 21. She will be the key bowler for the Indian side as they will quest for their Maiden title.

 

Ayabonga Khaka

Ayabonga Khaka is right arm medium pace bowler from South Africa. She has been a consistent wicket taker for the Proteas. In January 2022, in the second match against the West Indies, she took her first five-wicket haul in one day formar , with 5 for 26. In February 2022, she was named in South Africa’s team for the 2022 Women’s Cricket World Cup in New Zealand. She has picked up 96 wickets in 73 games with an average of 23. She will the key weapon in the Proteas armoury for the ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup 2022.
