Players to watch out:

Kathryn Bryce

The 26-year-old all-rounder, from 40 T20I appearances, has amassed 1020 runs at an average of 36.42 and claimed 37 wickets, with the best of 3/8, from 40 innings, maintaining an economy rate of 4.35. From a recent ODI, her figures read 73 and 2/12, and it’ll be hoped she replicates this success in the shortest format.

Abtaha Maqsood

The 24-year-old leg-spinner has scalped 45 wickets from 44 T20Is, registering the best of 3/8 and an economy rate of 5.21. While Abtaha’s most recent T20I dates to October 2023, on April 14, in an ODI, she produced figures of 4/30 (4). She has been in good form lately and can be counted on to lead the wickets tally.

Disha Dhingra

The 17-year-old opening batter, from 14 T20I outings, has accumulated 234 runs, including the highest of 63*. In the lead-up to this series, in ODIs, Disha registered consecutive scores of 58 and 23. It’ll be expected of her to continue this momentum and she will be backed to capitalize on the starts she has had.

Aditiba Chudasama

The 17-year-old off-spinner, from 6 T20Is, has struck 9 wickets, including the best of 2/6, at an average of 8.00 and an economy rate of 3.20. Aditiba has also had a good start to her tour of UAE with figures of 1/31 and 2/41 in the ODIs, ahead of the T20 tournaments. She can be handy with the bat and will be relied upon for the goods.

Pitch:

The 22-yard strip at the venue provides a well-balanced center wicket, promising a gripping contest between bat and ball. The same is evident from the average score in the 120s, and bowlers, particularly spinners, benefit from the assistance offered by the pitch.

Weather:

With rain on the radar throughout the day, possibilities are high for the game being abandoned. The temperature is forecasted to hover around 25°C, with moderate winds, and humidity at 69%.
