Jivana Aras

The 19-year-old all-rounder from the United States of America was recently a part of the Under-19 team that toured South Africa earlier this year for the first-ever Women’s U-19 World Cup. In her couple outings this FairBreak, she’s caught the attention of many with figures of 0/22 and 4/32.

Tash Farrant

The 26-year-old English all-rounder in national colors has bagged 15 wickets in 18 innings and has been a live wire in the tournament adding both runs and wickets to her tally. Scores of 12*, 36*, 15, and 32 define Tash’s form with the bat, and with the ball, she’s got figures of 0/10, 0/25, 3/11, 0/13, and 0/15.

Pitch:

The 22-yards at the Kowloon Cricket Club continue to have just enough for both pacers and spinners with it being a lively track. Having said that, it would only be right to call it a well-balanced track as its also got runs in it this summer which has brought to us many good games.

Weather:

It is expected to be a pleasant day with a partly cloudy overhead, and worry not about the rain playing a spoilsport as the radar is all bright with the temperature expected to hover around 24°C and humidity forecasted at 80%.

Babette de Leede, Stafanie Taylor, Erin Burns, Katherine Sciver-Brunt, Suné Luus, Aliya Riaz, Sana Mir, Dane van Niekerk, Shabnim Ismail, Tash Farrant, Diana Baig
