Thipatcha Putthawong: 

The wily left-arm spinner of Thailand has been the pick of the bowlers for her team in this competition. She has accounted for eight wickets in six matches. She has exhibited good control over her lines and lengths and kept the batters at bay.

Natthakan Chantham: 

The right-handed opening batter of Thailand is the highest run-scorer for her team in this tournament. She has muscled 116 runs in six matches, including one half-century, and has been the backbone of the team’s batting. She will be a vital cog for team Thailand.


The venue has hosted 20 full matches in this tournament so far, out of which teams batting first have won 13 and the teams batting second have won seven. The captain winning the toss may look to bowl first, with a high chance of rain predicted. Expect the bowlers to get some assistance due to the cloudy conditions. Also, the pitch has undergone a lot of wear and tear and may play on the slower side.


The weather is expected to see plenty of morning clouds, followed by clouds and sun in the afternoon. A thunderstorm could be on the cards. The highest temperature attained during the day will be 30 degrees Celsius. There will be a 63 percent cloud cover and an 80 percent chance of rain. The wind will blow from the southeast.
