Women’s T20 Challenge: Who are the highest run scorers in the tournament preceding WPL?

The Women’s T20 Challenge was an Indian women’s T20 cricket tournament held between 2018 and 2022. It featured three teams—Trailblazers, Supernovas, and Velocity—that played in a round-robin format followed by a final.

From 2023, it is to be replaced by a new franchise-based annual T20 tournament, the Women’s Premier League.

Various batters have appeared and scored runs over the last four seasons. A detailed look at the top-5:

Harmanpreet Kaur- Smriti Mandhana- Jemimah Rodrigues Trio

43310 wpl 2023 predicted

To no surprise, the trio consisting of Harmanpreet Kaur, Smriti Mandhana and Jemimah Rodrigues occupies the top three positions. Harmanpreet Singh, the current Indian captain, is the only cricketer to cross the 300-mark in the league, with vice captain Smriti and Jemimah being the only ones to cross the 200-mark with scores of 256 and 236 runs, respectively. Their current form in the T20 format only supports the stats we see here. In the league, Harmanpreet captained the Supernovas, who have won the title three times, while Smriti led the Trailblazers, who won the title once in the third edition.

Chamari Athapaththu

Chamari Athapaththu, a supernova, has participated in only two editions of the competition and yet has managed to secure a spot in the top five. Her consistent form in the format has been a bonus for both Sri Lanka, her national side, and for the Supernovas. She was integral to the victory in the opening match for Sri Lanka in the 2023 T20 World Cup. Ironically, she is one of the international cricketers that went unsold at the WPL Auctions in Mumbai this year.

The West Indian all-rounder was key to the Supernovas’ victory in the third edition. She excels with both the bat and the ball, earning her a spot among the top five scorers in the competition. However, she has only been a part of the 3rd and 4th edition. She will be donning the Gujarat Giants jersey at this year’s WPL.
