Players to watch

Tine Erichsen: 

The right handed batter from Denmark top scored with 21 runs off 25 balls to lead the run chase from the front in her last match against Norway. Apart from her batting, she is more than a handy right arm medium pace bowler.

She is a good all-rounder from Denmark, who can make useful contributions with both bat and ball. She is a right-handed middle order batter and a right arm medium pace bowler, who can open the bowling.

Gunjan Shukla: 

The captain of Sweden won the player of the match in her last outing against Denmark. The left arm seamer struck with 4-20 in 3.5 overs. She broke the back of Denmark’s batting with her consistent lines and lengths.

Abhilasha Singh: 

The right handed opening batter of Sweden top scored with run a ball 43. She stitched a 98-run partnership with her opening partner Kanchan Rana. The duo set the foundation for Sweden.

Pitch

The last match that was played at this venue was a rain-curtailed affair. The team batting first won the match after scoring 112 in 15 overs. Batting looked relatively easier in the first innings than the second innings. On the other hand, the cloudy conditions on the day may help the bowlers.

Weather

Variable cloudiness is expected right through the course of the day. The average temperature will be around 15 degrees Celsius. There will be 87 percent cloud cover and just two percent chance of rain. The wind will blow from the north-east.
