With disciplined bowling, wicket-taking and economical spells, she was integral to India's triumph in the tournament.

Mannat Kashyap

Mannat was India's second-best bowler in the tournament. The slow left-arm spinner from Patiala picked up 9 wickets with a best figure of 4-12 against Scotland.

Archana Devi

Archana Devi claimed 8 wickets, with an edition best of 3-14 against Scotland. She came through for Team India when it was most needed, and her abilities were highlighted not just in bowling but also in fielding.
