Nannapat Khoncharoenkai

The 23-year-old keeper-batter has amassed 1363 runs from 75 T20I innings, including the highest of 75. Nannapat has been in outstanding form of late, and though she departed for a duck in her first game on this tour, she followed up with scores of 36, 18, and 12*. The team will count on her to capitalize on these scores, leading the scoring.

Thipatcha Putthawong

The 20-year-old left-arm off-spinner, averaging 10.93 and maintaining an economy rate of 4.05, has scalped 64 wickets from 47 innings and also is handy with the bat. Thipatcha, while hasn’t added much to the runs tally, has returned effective figures of 1/10 (3), 1/21 (3), 0/20 (4), and 2/7 (3) in this campaign. She can be banked upon for the goods.

Jivana Aras

The 20-year-old all-rounder has played only 3 T20Is, scoring 24 runs in an inning and has a wicket to her name. While Jivana hasn’t been amongst wickets, registering figures of 0/7 (3), 0/11 (1), 0/17 (2), and 0/13 (1) in her previous few innings, she scored 24* in her most recent game. She’ll be backed to return to her wicket-taking best.

On this tour, Geetika, while hasn’t scored many, has been in effective form with the ball, producing figures of 1/27 (3), 2/25 (4), 1/9 (3.2), and 1/22 (3). She can be relied upon for all-round efforts.

Pitch:

The 22-yard strip at the Zayed Cricket Stadium provides a well-balanced center wicket, promising a gripping contest between the bat and the ball. The same is evident from the average score in the 130s, and bowlers, especially spinners, benefit from the assistance off the pitch.

Weather:

With moderate winds, humidity at 45%, and the temperature forecasted to hover around 29°C, the conditions are pleasant for a complete game of cricket. The overhead conditions are expected to be clear, and the chances of rain are minimal.
