Players to watch out:

Nida Dar

The 37-year-old all-rounder in T20Is, from 135 outings has scalped 131 wickets and amassed 1866 runs from 126 innings, including respective bests of 5/21 and 75. While Nida has been in outstanding form this series, especially with the ball, it’ll be hoped she continues on her form while converting her batting starts.

Sadia Iqbal

The 24-year-old left-arm off-spinner, maintaining an economy rate of 5.50, has claimed 31 wickets from 29 T20I innings and registered the best of 3/19. Sadia has been in effective form this series, returning figures of 2/28, 1/36, and 2/23, including in the One-Day Internationals (ODIs), and will be banked upon to lead the tally.

Qiana Joseph

The 23-year-old all-rounder, in the few T20Is she’s played, hasn’t found much success. However, in the T20I opener of this series, she added 34 runs to the tally, while her bowling figures read 1/23 (4). Qiana has looked in good form in this series on the back of a notable domestic season and can be counted on for the goods.

Karishma Ramharack

The 29-year-old off-spinner, from 26 T20I appearances, has taken 22 wickets, including the best of 4/15, maintaining an economy rate of 6.43. On a wicket favorable for spinners, Karishma hasn’t failed to impress, producing figures of 0/33, 3/48, and 1/30 in the ODIs, and 4/15 in the T20I opener. She’ll be backed to capitalize on this form.


The National Bank Stadium offers a well-balanced center wicket that has been favorable to both batters and bowlers. The par score at the venue is in the 140s, and the wicket does have the spinners play a crucial role in any team’s success.


The conditions are ideal for cricket in Karachi with no rain interruptions and a clear overhead. The temperature is forecasted to hover around 28°C, with moderate winds and a humidity level of 43%.
