Rumana Ahmed; Bangladesh: Currently the 14th best all-rounder in terms of ranking, Rumana has been one of the mainstays of Bangladesh for around a decade since her debut. A handy leg spinner and a dependable middle order batter, the 30-year-old right-hander thrives under pressure. Thus, the success of the Tigresses’ maiden world cup campaign heavily relies on Rumana’s shoulders.
