The 21-year-old all-rounder, in T20Is, has amassed 1771 runs from 73 outings and scalped 31 wickets from 40 innings, registering bests of 92* and 3/3. Kavisha was in outstanding form in a tournament earlier this year but has struggled for runs in this campaign, while has been economical and amongst wickets. She can be relied upon for the goods.

Heena Hotchandhani

The 23-year-old left-arm off-spinner, averaging 9.70 and maintaining an economy rate of 4.15, has bagged 17 wickets from 15 T20Is, while also being handy with the bat. In this campaign, while Heena has registered scores of 18 and 32, and initially struggled with the ball, her most recent bowling figures read 2/10 (4). It’ll be hoped she capitalizes on this return to form.

Inoshi Fernando

It’ll be hoped she continues to lead the wickets tally.


The Zayed Cricket Stadium dishes a well-balanced wicket, one that pleases both batters and bowlers. The center strip offers enough assistance to spinners; as a result, the average score at the venue is around the 120s, indicating that it will not be a very high-scoring contest.


With light winds, humidity at 40%, and the temperature forecasted to hover around 30°C, the conditions promise a complete game of cricket. The overhead is expected to be clear, and the chances of rain are minimal.
