Preview for Dream11 Fantasy
England defeated Pakistan by 85 runs in the series opener to take a 1-0 lead. The punt to let Danielle Wyatt open the innings worked for the visitors as she, along with Tammy Beaumont stitched 188 runs for the first wicket. Both the batters scored centuries to help the team post 284 runs on the board in 50 overs. Though Heather Knight scored quickfire 41 runs, England managed to add only 36 runs off last 33 deliveries which will worry the team.
They would like to finish on a good note if the situation occurs this time around. As far as Pakistan is concerned, their skipper Bismah Maroof and Aliya Riaz’s all-round form only contributed well in the match. To defeat a strong England Women’s side, Pakistan will have to put up a team performance and this must-win match might bring the best out of them.
Intermittent clouds will greet both the sides at the Kinrara Academy Oval in Kuala Lumpur on Thursday. However, there are no chances of rain and the temperature is expected to hover in the early 30s.
The surface at the venue is deemed tough to chase down totals. Having said that, the side batting first needs to post a total close to 300 which England did in the first ODI. Spinners will come into play as the game progresses. The trend of high scores in the first innings should continue.
Average first innings score: 244 (Women’s ODIs at the venue)
Record of the chasing teams: Won – 1; Lost – 3
Probable Playing XIs:
Nahida Khan, Sidra Ameen, Javeria Khan, Bismah Maroof (C), Omaima Sohail, Nida Dar, Aliya Riaz, Sidra Nawaz (WK), Rameen Shamim, Diana Baig, Nashra Sandhu.
Bench – Anam Amin, Fatima Sana, Syeda Aroob Shah, Kaynat Hafeez
Tammy Beaumont, Danielle Wyatt, Heather Knight (C), Natalie Sciver, Amy Ellen Jones (WK), Fran Wilson, Katherine Brunt, Sophie Ecclestone, Anya Shrubsole, Kate Cross, Sarah Glenn.
Bench – Lauren Winfield, Kirstie Gordon, Freya Davies, Mady Villiers
Danielle Wyatt and Tammy Beaumont are expected to be amongst the runs again irrespective of England bats first or chase. Heather Knight is a great all-round option to have as she bats at three and rolls her arm for a few overs. The same is the case with Sciver but it depends on how England starts whether she will get to bat or no. With the ball, Kate Cross, Brunt, Ecclestone are crucial.
For Pakistan, Javeria Khan and Bismah Maroof are important while Aliya Riaz should also earn more Fantasy points. But the rest of the players are more often than not inconsistent.
Captain and Vice-Captain Selection:
Captain Options – Amy Jones, Tammy Beaumont, Bismah Maroof, Javeria Khan
Vice-captain options – Nida Dar, Nat Sciver, Katherine Brunt, Nahida Khan
Suggested Playing XI No.1 for Fantasy Cricket:
Keeper – Amy Jones
Batters – Tammy Beaumont (VC), Javeria Khan, Danielle Wyatt (C)
All-Rounders – Katherine Brunt, Heather Knight, Bismah Maroof, Aliya Riaz
Bowlers – Kate Cross, Anya Shrubsole, Rameen Shamim
Suggested Playing XI No.2 for Fantasy Cricket:
Keeper – Amy Jones
Batters – Tammy Beaumont (C), Danielle Wyatt, Omaima Sohail
All-Rounders – Katherine Brunt (VC), Natalie Sciver, Bismah Maroof, Nida Dar
Bowlers – Sophie Ecclestone, Anya Shrubsole, Diana Baig
Having at least four England bowlers (including all-rounders) is advisable as Pakistan is expected to get all-out.
In case, England bowls first, it would be wise to pick only top three of their batters and Sciver can be left out.
England Women are expected to win this match and seal the series.
