Pitch

The wicket is not too conducive for batting. In the three women’s T20Is that have been played at this venue, none of the teams has gone past the 100-run mark. The cloudy conditions may assist the bowlers, especially the fast bowlers. Teams batting second have won all the three matches.

Weather

The weather is expected to be mostly cloudy and could see a shower. The average temperature will be around 14 degrees Celsius. There will be 90 percent cloud cover and 80 percent chance of rain. The wind will blow from the north-northwest.
