Hudaa Omary

The 20-year-old batter in 26 Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is) has got to 383 runs averaging 19.15. In her past few outings, Hudaa has been consistent with starts (25, 29, 20*, 10, and 12) and now a big knock of her blade is awaited.

Flavia Odhiambo

The 21-year-old pacer in 15 T20I innings has struck 17 wickets at an economy rate of 5.61 and has got the best figures of 4/22. Odhiambo looks as sharp as ever with the ball having registered figures of 1/10 against the UAE.

Pitch:

The Lugogo Cricket Oval is a low-scoring venue that typically favors bowlers, especially pacers. The pitch has a neutral character and the average score at this venue is in the 90s, making it a challenging ground for batters.

Weather:

While the temperature is forecasted at around 25°C, with humidity levels of 78%, light winds, and a high chance of rain, it could be an annoying day at the cricket if the skies don’t clear. Expect delayed starts and interruptions as shower spells are forecasted even during match hours.

Fantasy playing XI:
