The Women’s 20-20 World Cup is just a few days away as the excitement builds up. It will be the first Women’s 20-20 World Cup hosted in the African continent. The summer has already been eventful for Africa following the successful conduct of the inaugural season of the Under-19 Women’s 20-20 World Cup in Benoni and Potchefstroom in January.

It is a fanatic ritual to come up with combined XIs and the best XI for the tournament. Here’s an interesting one, there have been seven seasons of the Women’s 20-20 World Cup starting in 2009. Which players have made enough significant contributions over the seasons to make it into the ‘All-time best XI for the tournament?

Alyssa Healy (wk): The first player making it into this XI is Australia’s wicketkeeper-batter, Alyssa Healy. Picking Healy would be a blind choice for any fan; she has the second-highest strike rate in the Women’s 20-20 World Cup, scoring the fifth-highest runs in the tournament. Not to forget, she’d handle the gloves behind the stumps.

Suzie Bates: To open the batting alongside Healy, the tournament’s highest run scorer, is a logical pick. Suzie Bates has an impressive strike rate of 113.15 in the tournament and can come in handy with her right-arm medium-pace bowling.

Meg Lanning (C): Captaining this side is the Women’s 20-20 great Meg Lanning. She has captained Australia in 24 games in the tournament, winning 19 at an impressive win rate of 79.16 per cent. He has also won four Women’s 20-20 World Cup titles, three of them as Captain.
