Players to watch out:

Elsa Hunter

The 18-year-old batter, from 36 T20I innings, has accumulated 584, including the highest of 68. Elsa, with scores of 6 and 4, had a quiet start to her campaign but notched up a new career best in her 3rd outing. In her most recent game, she departed for 20, and it’ll be hoped she makes the most of her start and the return to form in this must-win.

Ainna Hamizah Hashim

The 23-year-old all-rounder, in T20Is, from 50 innings, has added 388 runs to the tally, while also striking 42 wickets from 62 outings. Ainna has had a decent campaign thus far, returning figures of 2/9, 1/11, 0/11, and 0/13, while with the bat, has departed on scores of 0 and 1. She’ll be backed to find her form and step up with an all-around effort.

Indu Barma

The 26-year-old all-rounder, from 45 T20I outings, has amassed 610 runs and struck 26 wickets from 28 innings, with bests being 55* and 3/5. Indu has registered two good scores of 40 and 22* from 4 outings in this competition, while also being effective with the ball. She’ll be counted on to deliver the goods, both with the bat and ball.

Puja Mahato

The 17-year-old all-rounder, from 17 T20I appearances, has bagged 16 wickets, including the best of 3/2, while also being handy with the bat, scoring 151 runs from 11 innings. In her only batting outing in this competition, Puja rewrote her career best to 59, and in the same game, also delivered her best with the ball. It’ll be expected of her to capitalize on this form.

Pitch:

The wicket at Bayuemas Oval provides a balanced playing surface, one that caters to both batters and bowlers. While it favors batters, the average score in the 130s indicates the assistance bowlers, especially spinners, can expect.

Weather:

A few minutes into the game, expect rain delays and interruptions, potentially resulting in a washout if the skies don’t clear in time. The temperature is forecasted to be around 32°C, with light winds and humidity of 70%.
