Players to watch out:
Wicketkeeper batter Gull Feroza will be a player to watch out for. She performed impressively in the last match scoring 62 runs in 101 balls. She also hit 4 fours in her innings. Her performance in the matches before was average so the team will be happy with her return to form and will hope that she continues her good run.
Captain Rameen Shamim is another good performer on the Pakistan side. In the previous match, she took 2 wickets for 31 runs at an economy rate of 3.1. She also bowled a maiden over in her spell. She will be a player to watch out for in this game.
Cherry Ann Fraser:
Cherry Ann Fraser was a standout performer for the West Indies with the ball. The all-rounder took 3 wickets for 38 runs at an economy of 5.8. However, with the bat, her performance was dismal as she managed to score only 1 run in 14 balls. The team will hope that she improves her batting in this match.
The 18-year-old performed well in the previous game taking 2 wickets for 29 runs. She bowled at an economy of 2.9 and took the wickets of Sidra Nawaz and Gul Rukh. She was also responsible for getting Humna Bilal run out and took the catch of captain Rameen Shamim. The team will hope for another good performance from her in this match.
