Day and date: 12th December, 2019
Match 2: Pakistan Women v England Women
Time: 9:30am local time (7:00am IST)
Venue: Kinrara Academy Oval, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
The first match of ongoing England versus Pakistan series taking place in Malaysia saw twin centuries by English batters – Danni Wyatt’s maiden ODI ton and Tammy Beaumont’s 7th. These two players helped England set a competitive target of 285 runs for the girls in green, who in return, succumbed to their English counterparts at 44.4 overs scoring 209 runs in all.
In the 2nd ODI which is going to be held at the same venue, Pakistan will look to make a comeback and score their maiden win versus England in this 3 ODI series. The Pakistani bowlers will have to step up if they want to stop the explosive English batters from scoring big again.
Pitch and weather report
The pitch at Kinrara Oval is always advantageous to the team batting first – a big target can be expected. Chasing down could be a task.
The temperature is expected to be around 33 – 35 degrees with intermittent cloud cover throughout the day.
Head to head
England are the favourites here as the Pakistani women have never scored a win against the English ladies in ODIs.
