The ICC T20 Women’s World Cup has begun and things are getting heated up among all the teams. On Tuesday, Australia’s women’s squad will take on Bangladesh’s women’s squad at 10.30 PM (IST) at Sr. George’s Oval.
Australia have been dominating women’s international cricket and they are the contenders for the trophy as well. And bookmakers are backing their defence with some decent odds.
Australia defeated India in their first warm-up game but their winning streak was ended by Ireland. The loss was totally unexpected and the team will be motivated to get back to the winning ways.
Bangladesh have not made an impact in international cricket for a long time. They are on a losing streak and the ICC T20 Women’s World Cup is a chance for them to revive the quality of their game.
And our experts also think that Australia will beat Bangladesh.
The betting tip is...
Alyssa Healy will be player of the match
Australia’s women’s division have dominated international cricket for a long time. They scored a three-match ODI and T20 series win against Pakistan and they also won the Commonwealth Final game against India. The loss against Ireland in the warm-up fixture before the beginning of the tournament won’t affect the overall confidence and team morale.
Australia will have their best players to start the game.
Predicted Lineup: Alyssa Healy (c & wk), Beth Mooney, Tahlia McGrath, Ashleigh Gardner, Ellyse Perry, Grace Harris, Annabel Sutherland, Jess Jonassen, Alana King, Kim Garth, Megan Schutt
Bangladesh are finding it challenging to score wins in international cricket. The last win they scored was against Thailand women in a World Cup qualifier fixture. The team also lost both of their warm-up matches against India and Pakistan respectively and these two losses will make a huge impact on the overall confidence of the group.
Bangladesh will also have the best possible playing XI to make sure they give tough competition to Australia.
Predicted Lineup: Shamima Sultana, Nigar Sultana, Sharmin Akhter, Fargana Hoque, Sobhana Mostary, Rumana Ahmed, Salma Khatun, Ritu Moni, Jahanara Alam, Nahida Akter, Disha Biswas
We predict that Australia will score a comfortable win against Bangladesh on Tuesday.
