The first five 100% cricket superstars were launched by ICC. Before the historic start of the commonwealth games which include women’s cricket contests. CommonWealth games are to be played in Birmingham. Then first few names that would be called 100% Superstars that fans can ultimately choose them in the squad.

Sophie Ecclestone (England), Amelia Kerr (New Zealand), Hayley Matthews (West Indies), Shafali Verma (India), and Laura Wolvaardt (South Africa). Certainly, these names were selected with the input of the ICC Women’s Cricket Committee.

Why are only these names selected?

Talking about the Indian who made it into the list is the youngest player to make the debut and half-century. In addition to this, Verma can clear ropes easily and within no time taking away the game from the opponents. Furthermore not acknowledging this achievement would be a serious miss for World cricket.

Sophie Ecclestone having 150 wickets under her name. The 23-year-old is the number 1 bowler in ODI and T20 rankings. The left-arm bowler bowls at small lengths. The bowler made her Test debut in 2017.

The West Indies captain Hayley Matthews is the heart and soul of the team. The captain is both the leading run-scorer as well as leading wicket-taker. In addition to this, she was the Player of the match in the Final at the 2016 T20 World Cup. Matthews made 66 of just 45 balls days after her 18th birthday.

New Zealand’s double centurion all-rounder Amelia Kerr owns the world record for this achievement. The batter was just 17 when she scored 232* against Ireland in 2018. After her amazing batting performance, Kerr took a 5-wicket haul in the same game. The 21-year-old lady plays a crucial role in batting as well as bowling. Her team wants the record book re-written with some new benchmarks Kerr is up to.

Last but not least is South Africa’s Laura Wolvaardt. The batting sensation has already 3000 runs under her belt. Fans and her teammates cherish her cover drives and think she’s a natural fit in ODI cricket. Furthermore, she has evolved into T20 format adding more power to this game.
