Star Indian opener Smriti Mandhana plays for Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Women’s Premier League. She is undoubtedly one of the most adored and followed by cricket fans across the cricketing world. She also enjoys a massive fan following among young and enthusiastic cricket fans.

Mandhana is also the vice-captain of India’s Women’s Cricket team at the moment; she is known for playing crucial roles for Team India in difficult situations. She is just like Marvel Universe’s Wanda Maximoff owing to the latter’s power of telekinesis. With a resemblance to Wanda’s magic-creating abilities, Mandhana can also prove her mettle with her magical batting performances on the field.

Harmanpreet Kaur – Captain Marvel

She also led the Indian team to clinch the gold medal in the Asian Games 2023 in the women’s cricket category, defeating Sri Lanka in the final match of the tournament.

Harmanpreet mostly resembles Marvel Universe’s Captain Marvel, considering the abilities like superhuman speed, strength, stamina, endurance and physical durability. The Indian captain has also similar abilities when she represents India on the field. The star all-rounder captains the team with an example from her performances.

Ellyse Perry – Black Widow

Notably, Perry has been one of the very few athletes who participated in world cups for Australia in two sports, namely cricket and football.

Perry’s intelligence is more or less similar to Marvel’s character of agent Black Widow. Just like Widow, the Aussie cricketing great is also capable of delivering on the field both with the bat and the ball.
