England would like to finish on a good note if the situation occurs this time around. As far as Pakistan is concerned, their skipper Bismah Maroof and Aliya Riaz’s all-round form only contributed well in the match. To defeat a strong England Women’s side, Pakistan will have to put up a team performance and this must-win match might bring the best out of them.

Pitch Conditions And Toss

An extremely fine surface, the fact that this is going to be the first match to be contested over here, the bat couldn’t have asked for a more exquisite surface to come out and bat on. The ball comes onto the bat squarely, allowing the batsmen all the time and room in the world to cream the ball to the fence with the team winning the toss looking to step out and field first today.

Players to look out for

Pakistan: Javeria Khan, Bismah Maroof, Nida Dar, Nashra Sandhu

For Pakistan, Javeria Khan and Bismah Maroof are important while Aliya Riaz should also earn more brownie points.
