Players to watch out:
The 36-year-old in One-Day Internationals (ODIs), in 56 innings with the ball has struck 74 wickets and has got the best figures of 4/22, while has been handy with the bat scoring 310 runs in 46 innings. In the opener, Afy recorded figures of 2/10 (5.1) and 44(52).
The 22-year-old, in 8 ODI outings has struck 7 wickets with the best of 2/24, and in 8 innings, with the bat has scored 38 runs. Qiana in the opener wasn’t required with the bat, while with the ball registered figures of 4/18 (10).
The 29-year-old Canadian international previously played international cricket for Kenya as well. Divya in the opener, scored a 33-ball 30, while in 2 overs with the ball, conceded leaked 17 runs.
The 34-year-old spin all-rounder in the opener recorded figures of 2/17 (5), while with the bat was cheaply dismissed for 9(17). The all-rounder will remain crucial in the team’s success this season.
With the track being on the slower side, it has not been easy for batting, and the average score of 160 at the venue suggests the same. Bowlers, especially spinners, dictate the proceedings of the game as the ball grips and turns.
With partly cloudy skies and a low chance of rain, the conditions are pleasant at Warner Park for some cricket. The temperature is forecasted to hover around 29°C, with moderate winds and a humidity level of 68%.
