Suleeporn Laomi

The 24-year-old with her leg break has struck 53 scalps in 48 innings at an average of 11.88, a strike rate of 17.5 and with a four-fer to her name has registered the best figures of 4/9. In the series, she’s picked up 3 wickets off her 8 overs (2 innings) thus far.

Robine Rijke

The 26-year-old, averages 15.75 in the format having scored 378 runs off 31 innings and has done so at a strike rate of 82.71. In the format, she’s got the highest score of 43 and has also started the series with a fine 33.

Eva Lynch

The 22-year-old with her right-arm off-break has struck 21 scalps in 21 innings at an average of 16.33, a strike rate of 19.4, but much more importantly has got a four-fer to her name with the best figures of 4/24 and has got an economy rate of 5.04. In the series, she went wicketless in the first but bowled economically and in the 2nd spun a 3-fer.

Pitch :

With a couple of T20Is and 4 One Day Internationals (ODIs) previously played in the same venue, the upcoming, 3rd T20I, will be the 7th of the series. The 22-yards presented thus far have been good for batting, but with the surface not holding up to its best, spinners and pacers with variations will find themselves in the game a lot more now.

Weather :

Showers are predicted throughout the day on the radar and with humidity at 77% and rain chances at 60%, the weather isn’t the most ideal for a good game of cricket. With the series levelled at 1-1 and a couple of games in hand, a washout will mean a decider in the 4th T20I meaning a possible series draw moves out of the equation.
