Players to watch out for
The captain of Argentina will be a player to watch out for going into this game. The right hand opening bat top scored with 19. She was the only batter to score in double digits in the previous encounter against Canada.
The right arm quick had a decent outing against Canada in the first match. She picked up 1-19 in her three overs. She was one of the two wicket-takers for Argentina.
Renata de Sousa:
The right-hand middle order bat was the highest run-getter for Brazil in the first match played against the United States. She scored 13 runs and was the lone batter to score more than 10 runs in the Brazil batting innings. The right arm quick also picked up 1-11 in her four overs.
The right arm seamer, who opened the bowling for Brazil scalped 1-13 in her four overs. She was the only bowler to bowl a maiden over in Brazil’s bowling innings.
There could be a bleak chance of rain during the course of the match. There is a 25% chance of precipitation during the first half of the game and 51% chance of precipitation in the later half with 70% cloud cover. The temperature ranges between 20 and 23 degrees Celsius. The weather is expected to be partly sunny with a chance of thunderstorms.
It is a good cricketing wicket. The batters get value for their shots, while the bowlers also have some assistance. The seamers have been more successful than the spinners so far at this venue.
