Players to watch out:

Sidra Amin

The 31-year-old batter has featured in 36 T20Is, amassing 587 runs, including her highest score of 61. Sidra has been in sensational form during this series, following up her impressive knock of 33 in the opener with a match-winning 61 in the 2nd T20I, which is now her new personal best. With the ODIs to follow, Sidra’s form has set the series alive.

Sadia Iqbal

The 28-year-old left-arm spinner, with 19 T20Is to her name, has claimed as many wickets. She maintains an economy rate of under 6 and holds her best figures of 3/19. In this series, Sadia has recorded identical figures of 1/22 in both of her outings. Although she faced a dip in form during the World Cup earlier this year, her return to form is a promising sign for the team as they head into a busy international season.

Tazmin Brits

The 32-year-old batter has made 37 appearances in T20I matches and amassed 917 runs at a strike rate just above 100, with her best score being 78. Tazmin has certainly met expectations in the series, recording a new career-best score of 78 off 64 balls, followed by 46 off 48 balls. However, will want to keep a check on the strike rate, as should her opening partner Laura Wolvaardt, to avoid a clean sweep.

Nonkululeko Mlaba

The 23-year-old left-arm spinner in 34 T20Is has scalped 30 wickets, maintaining an economy rate of 5.98, with her best performance being 3/10. Nonkululeko, who didn’t manage to take any wickets in the opener, has now returned among wickets with an impressive spell of 2/20 from 3 overs.


The 22-yard center wicket at the National Stadium, Karachi, provides a well-balanced playing surface, slightly favoring the batters. Despite being good for batting, the average score in the 150s suggests that bowlers, especially spinners, can expect some assistance from the pitch.


With moderate winds, humidity at 67%, and the temperature forecasted to hover around 27°C, the conditions are pleasant to be at the cricket. The overhead is expected to be partly cloudy and the chances of rain remain minimal.
