India’s women’s division are one of the strongest teams in the tournament. They are on the list of contenders for the T20 World Cup trophy, however, the only major problem in front of them is the heavyweights like Australia and England. Team India witnessed a disappointing defeat against Australia in a warmup game. Team management still has time and they can resolve the issue before India reaches the next round.
Team India will come out with the strongest possible playing XI against Pakistan.
Predicted Lineup: Harmanpreet Kaur (c), Smriti Mandhana, Shafali Verma, Yastika Bhatia, Richa Ghosh, Jemimah Rodrigues, Harleen Deol, Devika Vaidya, Renuka Thakur, Pooja Vastrakar, Rajeshwari Gayakwad
Pakistan’s women’s division are struggling to make an impact in international cricket across all the formats of the game. Their only good memory in the year 2022 was the win against team India in the Women’s Asia Cup 2022. The team reached the semi-final stage but lost the knockout game to Sri Lanka. Pakistan also witnessed a series of losses against Australia in the ODI and T20 format in January.
Pakistan’s team management has done some changes in the squad and will be expecting a positive outcome.
Predicted Lineup: Sidra Ameen, Javeria Khan, Bismah Maroof (c), Muneeba Ali, Nida Dar, Ayesha Naseem, Sadaf Shamas, Aliya Riaz, Sidra Nawaz, Aiman Anwer, and Nashra Sandhu
Considering the recent performances of both teams, we predict a win for team India in the upcoming fixture.
