New Delhi: Deepti Sharma and Alyssa Healy are the frontrunners to don the UP Warriorz captain’s hat when the Women’s Premier League (WPL) kicks off in Mumbai on March 4. Both the players have been bought by the franchise at the WPL auction on Monday.

UP Warriorz broke the bank when they secured the services of local girl Deepti Sharma for a whopping Rs 2.60 crore. However, the Capri Globals-owned franchise sprung a surprise when they got swashbuckling Australian batter Alyssa Healy for as low as Rs 70 lakh.

The right-hander has also captained New South Wales in domestic one-day cricket since 2018. With Jon Lewis (head coach), Anju Jain (assistant coach), Lisa Sthalekar (mentor) and Ashley Noffke (bowling coach), it will be interestig to who UP Warriorz pick to lead the side.

Besides Deepti and Healy, UP have got a compact squad that boasts youth and experience. They have got some of the consistent names in world cricket in Sophie Ecclestone, Shabnim Ismail, Grace Harris, Tahlia McGrath among the overseas stars.

As far as the Indians are concerned, the likes of Rajeshwari Gayakwad, Devika Vaidya, Kiran Nagvire, U-19 World Cup winners Shweta Sehrawat and Parshavi Chopra, to name a few.
