Preview for Dream11 Fantasy
After facing a defeat in ODI series by 2-0, now Pakistan Women will now lock horns with England Women in the three-match T20I series starting on December 17.
For Pakistan Women Bismah Maroof did well in the 50-over series and now she would be eager to replicate her form in the T20I series opener as well. They also have Nahida Khan and Javeria Khan, who can bolster some good knocks for their side with the bat. In bowling, they will bank on Nida Dar and Rameen Shamim, who have impressed everyone with their recent performances.
England Women have all their corners covered as their batters are in top-notch form whereas bowling unit is also contributing well in that department. With the likes of Heather Knight, Danni Wyatt, Fran Wilson, England looks the favourite to win the series opener against Pakistan.
The chances of rain are quite high and it might abandon the 1st T20I match between England Women and Pakistan Women. However, the temperature is expected to deviate between 33 and 40 Degree Celsius according to Accuweather.
The track at Kinrara Academy Oval went pretty in the favour of the batters during the ODI series. And, if the same wicket is used in the T20I series then fans might get to watch a run-fest with batters smashing the ball across the park. But, the spinners will also play an important role in the second half of the match, who will get some turn from the wicket. The team winning the toss will look to bat first because it is relatively easy to chase on this ground.
