Players to watch out:

Aleena Shah

The all-rounder didn’t have the best of starts to her campaign, departing for 13 runs; however, in the following game, she capitalized on her start, registering a fine 44. Aleena has sent down 4 overs this tournament but remains wicketless and has maintained an economy rate of 7.25. She’ll be relied upon for the goods.

Momina Riyasat

The 21-year-old left-arm spinner has bagged a couple of wickets from as many outings, registering an economy rate of 8.05 and the best figures of 1/21. The team will count on Momina to continue her bowling form, with a check on her run rate, while also chipping in with some handy runs.

Sidra Amin

The 31-year-old opening batter has amassed 688 runs, including the highest score of 61, from 43 T20 Internationals (T20Is). Sidra hasn’t had much success in T20Is lately; however, she has made a statement this tournament, scoring 116 runs from 2 outings at a strike rate of 141.46. It’ll be watched if she finishes on a similar high.

Ghulam Fatima

The 28-year-old leg-spinner was sidelined from the T20I side in the team’s recent tour of New Zealand, though she was successful in the longer format. This tournament, Ghulam has made a case for her T20I return, taking 6 wickets from just a couple of outings, maintaining an economy rate of 4.38. It’ll be hoped she carries forward this momentum.

Pitch:

The center wicket at Shoaib Akhtar Cricket Stadium provides a well-balanced playing surface, slightly favoring the batters. Despite being good for batting, the average score in the 130s suggests that it’s got enough in it for bowlers as well, especially pacers.

Weather:

It’ll be a bright sunny day at the Shoaib Akhtar Cricket Stadium with the temperature expected to hover around 18°C, with light winds, and a humidity level of 52%. With a clear forecast, we are in for a complete game of cricket.
