Players to watch out:

Ni Nanda Sakarini

The 26-year-old keeper-batter has amassed 887 runs from 32 T20I innings, including the highest score of 95*, averaging 38.56. Ni Nanda Sakarini last took the field in April 2024 in a bilateral series against Mongolia, where she registered scores of 70, 8, 17*, and 61. It is hoped she picks up from where she left off, leading the scoring.

Ni Wayan Sariani

The 34-year-old pacer, averaging 9.11 and maintaining an economy rate of 3.52, has scalped 36 wickets from 28 T20Is and registered a best of 4/5. Ni Wayan Sariani, in a multi-team event earlier this year, returned consecutive figures of 3/4, 3/7, and 2/19. Given her experience, she can be counted on for breakthroughs.

Dechen Wangmo

The 31-year-old all-rounder in T20Is, from 20 outings, has posted 319 runs on the board and, from 16 bowling innings, has taken as many wickets. Dechen, in a multi-team event earlier this year, didn’t find much success with the ball but was consistently among the runs with the bat. She can be banked upon for the goods.

Tshering Zangmo

The 26-year-old all-rounder, from 19 T20I outings, has added 212 runs to the tally and, from 18 innings, taken 17 wickets. Tshering, in her previous 4 T20Is, produced figures of 2/4, 2/11, 2/10, and 0/18 in a multi-team event earlier this year, though she didn’t add much with the bat, she can be relied upon for improved all-round efforts.

Pitch:

The Bali wicket provides ample support for batters, making it a favorable surface for batting with an average score in the 130s. However, spinners will also have the opportunity to make an impact and exploit the conditions to their advantage.

Weather:

With rain on the radar throughout the day, there is a high possibility of the game being abandoned. The temperature is forecasted to hover around 27°C, with moderate winds and humidity at 84%.
