Mannat Kashyap: 

The wily left-arm spinner of India Women’s U19 wreaked havoc with the ball in the fourth T20 against New Zealand Development Squad. She scalped 25/5 in 3.3 overs. She bowled well with the new ball inside the powerplay and asked questions to the opposition batters.

The right-handed middle-order batter of the New Zealand Development Squad, who led the side in the fourth T20 against India Women’s U19, mustered 16 off 20, including a boundary. She was the top run-getter for her team. Though she fought hard, she failed to see her side home.

Kayley Knight: 

The right-arm pace sensation of the New Zealand Development Squad was one of the most successful bowlers for her team in the fourth T20 against India Women’s U19. She picked up 20/2 in four overs. She opened the bowling with Natasha Codyre and bowled well in the death overs.

Pitch

It will be the fifth and last match of the tournament at this venue. The wicket is expected to be on the slower side. Spinners will play a key role. Hot and humid conditions can make bowling in the first innings challenging. A relatively low-scoring contest could be on the cards. However, expect a riveting competition between the bat and the ball.

Weather

The weather is expected to see plenty of sun. The highest temperature attained during the day will be 35 degrees Celsius. There will be a zero percent cloud cover and a one percent chance of rain. The wind will blow from the north.
