Jemimah Rodrigues is one of the most gifted batters of her generation. Sports runs in her genes with her father being a junior coach where she did her schooling from. A top-order batter, Rodrigues was just 13 when she made the cut for the Maharashtra U-19 cricket team. Besides, she also played hockey and represented her state at the U-17 level.

Rodrigues made a rapid progress from junior to international circuit making her India debut at the age of 17. He first international match was a T20I against South Africa in February 2018 while a month later, she made her ODI bow against Australia. She is a solid batter, capable of playing the role of an anchor and can accelerate at will. Besides her batting skills, Rodrigues is a superb fielder as well. She has played in major T20 leagues across the world including Big Bash League and The Women’s Hundred where she holds the record for the second highest individual score.

Rodrigues is a multi-talented individual who loves music, has quite a presence on social media and recently recorded her first song with actor Aparshakti Khurana.

Meg Lanning is a bona fide superstar and at just 30 years of age, is a seven-time world champion. When she scored a century in what was her second international match, Lanning became the youngest ever Australian (male or female) to achieve the feat. In 2012, she broke the record for the fastest ever hundred – male or female – by an Australian taking just 45 deliveries to do so.

Lanning isn’t just a batting prodigy. She possesses a fine cricket brain as well and at 21 was appointed the Australia captain – becoming the youngest ever to do so. And boy did she justify that by leading her team to four T20 world titles and one ODI world cup triumph. No wonder Delhi Capitals named her as their captain for the inaugural WPL after shelling out Rs 1.1 crore to sign her.

She captained Australia to a world record 26 ODI wins in a row, won Ashes and then led them to a historic CWG gold medal in 2022. There were speculations over her cricket future after she took a long break following the CWG but returned in early 2023 before captaining Australia to a successful T20 World Cup title defence in South Africa.

Shafali Verma recently turned 19 but it seems that she has been representing India for ages. Why? Because her international debut came when she was just 15.

A top-order batter, Shafali is known for her fearless approach with the bat who in June 2021 became the youngest Indian – male or female – to play all three formats of the game. The highly rated batter famously disguised herself as a boy so as to be able to train in an academy for boys since there were none for girls where she grew up.

Like millions of Indians, Shafali idolises legendary Sachin Tendulkar and her free-spirited strokeplay is often reminds one of Virender Sehwag. Last year, she became the youngest ever to score 1000 runs in women’s T20Is. And in 2023, she led India to a historic title win at the inaugural U-19 Women’s T20 World Cup. At the WPL auction, Delhi Capitals splurged a whopping Rs 2 crore to acquire her services and she was later named as their vice-captain for the inaugural season.

Laura Harris is an Australian cricketer who plays as a middle-order batter. Harris took part in various sports growing up including cricket, football and rugby. Despite her love for cricket, she didn’t pursue it as a career and instead became a nurse working in the emergency department of Logan Hospital.

However, she couldn’t stay away from the game for long as she resumed her love affair with cricket and eventually made it to the Big Bash League winning two titles with Brisbane Heat a team she has represented since the tournament got underway in 2015.

Delhi Capitals secured the services of Harris at the inaugural WPL auction after a brief tussle with Royal Challengers Bangalore. They paid Rs 45 lakh for the explosive hitter.

Jasia Akhtar became the sole female cricketer from Kashmir to have been picked by a franchise at the inaugural Women’s Premier League auction in 2023. Jasia hails from a remote village of Braripora in the militancy-hit Shopian. Her father is a farmer and mother a homemaker and growing up, she went through hardships to keep her dream alive of playing cricket.

Jasia saved her pocket money just to be able to travel to Srinagar to train at the Jammu and Kashmir Cricket Association facility. After moving to Punjab at the age of 18 to further her dream of becoming a pro, Jasia realised how far she’s behind others at her level thanks to the lack of facilities back home.

She worked hard, day and night, and soon represented Punjab before moving to Rajasthan whom she now captains. The 34-year-old Jasla is a top-order batter who was picked by Delhi Capitals for Rs 20 lakh where she will rub shoulders with the likes of Australia superstar Meg Lanning.

 Sneha Deepthi shot to fame when she became the youngest T20I debutant for India at 16 years and 204 days before Shafali Verma broke the record.  She made her India debut alongside Smriti Mandhana in 2013. Deepthi made a successful return to professional cricket after becoming a mother. She is an aggressive top-order batter who is a fine option to exploit the Powerplay overs.

The love for the game began when she was just eight years old. Deepthi’s father used to train her younger brother at ground and she tagged along with them and used to fetch balls. After a few time, she grew frustrated and it was then her father asked her to bat from thereon, the love blossomed. She represents Andhra at the domestic level.

She has scored a double-century and triple century in district level matches.

Deepthi hopes to make India comeback and what better platform that WPL to realise her dream. At the WPL auction, she was picked by Delhi Capitals at her base price of Rs 30 lakh.

Five-time Women’s T20 World Cup champion Jess Jonassen was one of the smartest buys for Delhi Capitals in the WPL Auction for INR 50 Lakh. It was a steal deal for Delhi Capitals as no other franchise made a bid for her. She will be playing under the leadership of her Australian teammate Alyssa Healy as DC will bank on the champion duo to create their magic in the inaugural season of the Women’s Premier League.

Born in Emerald, Queensland, Jonassen made her international debut against New Zealand in 2012 and she soon became a regular in the Australian team. She has been winning matches for the Aussie for more than a decade now with both bat and the ball. The 2023 Women’s T20 WC final against South Africa was her 100th T20I match and it will forever remain a memorable one for her as she lifted the coveted trophy for the fifth time in her illustrious career. In the summit clash, she claimed the crucial wicket of Chloe Tryon to make things easy for the Aussies.

The left-arm spinner is known for putting a brake on the scoring rate in the middle overs and the pitches in India will suit her bowling in spin-friendly conditions.

Experienced India pacer Shikha Pandey was signed by Delhi Capitals for the inaugural season of Women’s Premier League. Pandey, who was part of India’s 2023 Women’s T20 World Cup squad, was bought for INR 60 Lakh. Born in Karimnagar of Andhra Pradesh, (now Telangana), 33-year-old Shikha is the first and only Indian Air Force officer to play cricket for India women’s cricket team.

She has rich experience of playing white-ball cricket with 55 ODIs and 62 T20I matches. The right-arm pacer is known for his swing bowling with the new ball which has troubled many batters in the past. She made a dream debut against Bangladesh on 9 March, 2014  where she bowled an economical spell of 1/14 in her quota of four overs. While she didn’t get a chance to display her batting skills on debut.

Pandey has a decent record in T20Is with the ball 43 wickets in 62 matches at an economic rate of 6.49 but when it comes to batting she lacks the ability to hit big shots as her strike rate is 79.08. She has been in and out of the Indian set-up for the past couple of years but was part of the 2023 T20 WC squad as she also played the semifinal against Australia where India suffered a heartbreaking defeat. Meanwhile, Pandey claimed two wickets in that match.

Seasoned South Africa all-rounder Marizanne Kapp hit the pay dirt in Women’s Premier League 2023 Auction as Delhi Capitals signed him for INR 1.5 crore. The Proteas star recently played in the final of 2023 Women’s T20 World Cup where her team suffered a heartbreaking defeat against Australia. It was quite an emotional game for Kapp as she was seen in tears during the national anthem.

Born in Port Elizabeth, Kapp made her international debut in 2009 in an ICC Women’s ODI World Cup match against Australia. Things didn’t work as planned for her as she was dismissed for just 7 and ended up wicketless. However, she soon became an integral part of the Proteas white-ball set-up as she has played 129 ODIs so far and is close to completing the century in T20Is too with 94 at the moment.

Being a fast-bowling all-rounder, she is a valuable asset for any team in the world. She usually bats at number 4 and has the ability to play as a sixth bowler in the side if required.

In the final against Australia in 2023 T20 WC, she claimed two crucial wickets of Alyssa Healy and Meg Lanning but failed to put up a show with the bat and was dismissed for 7.

In the WPL Auction, several franchises went after her but Delhi Capitals were determined to sign her and they eventually did.

Minnu Mani | India 

Role – Left hand Batter | Right arm Offbreak

Major Teams – Kerala Women, Delhi Capitals Women

Date of Birth – March 24, 1999, Age – 23

Birth Place –  Hyderabad

Born and bought up in the Wayanad district of Kerala, Minnu Mani’s journey is an inspiration to every girl who is working hard to fulfil their dreams. The Women’s Premier League is expected to bring a revolution in women’s cricket as it is providing chances for players like Mani to play alongside the legends of the game in front of a big crowd. Mani, a tribal girl from the foothills of Mananthavady, started playing cricket at the age of 10.

The 25-year-old is yet to make her India debut but she has been an integral part of the Kerala women’s team and has played for India ‘A’ and India Blue in Challenger Trophy.

She impressed many during the Women’s All-India One-day Tournament where she scored 246 runs from eight matches and also managed to take 12 wickets to display her all-round credentials.

She has all the potential to make it big and the WPL is coming at the right time for her to express herself and showcase her talent in front of many. At Delhi Capitals she will get the opportunity to share the dressing room with star players like Alyssa Healy, Shafali Verma, Jemimah Rodrigues and Marizanne Kapp.

Alice Capsey | England

18-year-old Alice Capsey is touted as the next big thing in England’s women’s cricket and Delhi Capitals signed her for INR 75 lakh, while her base price was INR 30 lakh. Apart from Delhi, Mumbai Indians also displayed a keen interest in signing her but the Capitals with their fifth big sealed the deal. The all-rounder made her debut in July 2022 against South Africa where she picked a wicket with her off-break but didn’t get a chance to showcase her batting skills.

The English management backed the young prodigy and gave her a long run in white-ball cricket as she also made her ODI debut last year in September against England.

Every team looks for a lower-middle order player who can finish the innings with big hits in white-ball cricket and Capsey fits the category well with her T20I strike rate of 132.90 in 15 T20Is which also included a couple of half-centuries. While she can also roll her arms when the captain wants an extra option in the team.

She can turn out to be a smart investment for Delhi Capitals who are known for nourishing young players in IPL with the likes of Prithvi Shaw, Rishabh Pant, Shreyas Iyer (now plays for KKR) and Avesh Khan (now plays for LSG).

Delhi Capitals signed out-of-favour medium pacer Arundhati Reddy for INR 30 Lakh for the first edition of Women’s Premier League. It is going to be a crucial season for Reddy who is eyeing to make a comeback into the Indian team as she last played an international match way back in 2021. Reddy also has to impress the DC team management to get a place in the side for the initial matches of WPL 2023. Delhi Capitals have Shikha Pandey and Marizanne Kapp in the side who are expected to start over Reddy in the playing XI.

Born in Hyderabad, Reddy has experience of playing in mega tournaments as she was part of India’s 2018 and 2022 T20 World Cup squads but she failed to cement her place in the side as the emergence of Renuka Singh Thakur put her on the waiting list.

Reddy made her international debut in a T20I against Sri Lanka in September 2018. In her maiden series itself, the medium-pacer impressed everyone with figures of 2-19. The 25-year-old can also bat lower-down the order in crucial situation to save the game for her side.

She travelled last with the Indian team on 2021 England tour where she claimed just one wicket in three matches.

Radha Yadav’s story is an inspiring one, a proper rags to riches tale as she belongs from a very humble family. Radha was born prematurely, in the fourth month, her father used to sell vegetables and their family used to live in a very small house.

Coming from such a background, she has become a regular feature in the Indian team more recently. The 22-year-old was signed by Delhi Capitals for her base price of Rs 40 lakh.

Her tryst with the bat and ball began when Radha played with boys in the compound of a nearby society where her talent was noticed by her coach Prafful Naik. After representing Mumbai and Baroda domestically, she got the chance to make her international bow in a T20I match in February 2018 against South Africa.

In October later that year, Yadav finished as India’s leading wicket-taker at the T20 World Cup 2018, with 8 scalps. Later in 2021, she would go on to cement her place in the Indian team and she also made her ODI and Test debut.

She played for Sydney Sixers in the Women’s Big Bash in 2021, and was also part of the Indian team which won the silver medal in the Commonwealth Games last year. During the recently concluded T20 World Cup, Radha picked up three wickets in four matches, including a two-wicket haul against Pakistan.

Slowly she would become a key figure in the Indian team and in 2018, she reached her career-best T20I ranking, rising to third place. Poonam was India’s leading wicket-taker in the 2018 T20 World Cup, with 8 scalps, and she is India’s second-highest wicket-taker in the shortest format behind Deepti Sharma.

Having won the Player of the Match in the ICC Under-19 Women’s T20 World Cup final as India trumped England to claim the top prize, Titas Sadhu’s breakthrough moment had arrived. She was signed by Delhi Capitals for Rs 25 lakh after they fought off competition from the UP Warriorz.

Hailing from a family of athletes, she used to be a sprinter like her father, and she was good at swimming too. Titas used to be a score-keeper at a small club called Rajendra Smirti Sangh and from there her journey began.

After facing rejection in a trial for the Bengal team, she was given a chance as the net bowler, before finally getting a breakthrough. The teenager was included in the senior squad at the age of 16. She was her state’s highest wicket taker in CAB’s Women’s T20 tournament last year.

Sadhu made her T20 debut in December 2022 against New Zealand. Titas idolizes Jhulan Goswami, and she finished the U-19 T20 World Cup with six wickets under her belt.

From growing up playing with balls and not dolls like other young girls to winning the POTM award in the final of T20 World Cup, the youngster has come a long way.
