India Women (IN-W) will square off against arch-rivals Pakistan Women (PK-W) in their second Group A match of the Women’s T20 event at Commonwealth Games (CWG) 2022 on Sunday, July 31. The match will be played at Edgbaston Cricket Ground from 3:30 PM IST (Indian Standard Time).
Both India and Pakistan lost their respective opening fixtures in the ongoing Women’s T20 event at CWG 2022 on Friday.
While Harmanpreet Kaur-led India suffered a three-wicket defeat against reigning T20 World Champions Australia, Bismah Maroof’s Pakistan were stunned by Barbados as they lost their first match of the tournament by 15 runs.
IN-W vs PK-W Dream11 prediction
India Women and Pakistan Women face off in a must-win encounter at the Commonwealth Games on Sunday.
Under captain Harmanpreet Kaur, India head into the marquee fixture in poor form, having registered two wins and three defeats in their last five T20Is.
Similarly, Pakistan have secured just two victories in their last five matches in the shortest format.
In the India vs Pakistan head-to-head record in Women’s T20I cricket, the Women in Blue have won nine of the 11 matches that they have played so far. Pakistan have managed just two wins.
Going by past head-to-head record, IN-W will start as clear favourites against PK-W in Birmingham.
IN-W vs PK-W Dream11 team tips for Women’s T20 Commonwealth Games 2022
Top Tip: Best batter
Shafali Verma will be the batter to watch out for in India vs Pakistan Women’s T20 fixture at CWG 2022. The 18-year-old Indian batter scored an impressive 48 off just 33 balls against Australia in their opening match on Friday. Verma has already accrued 67 fantasy points and will be a worthy pick at 9 credits.
Top Tip: Best bowler
In the bowling department, India’s Renuka Singh will be the overwhelming choice. The right-arm fast bowler troubled the mighty Australians as she picked four wickets for just 18 runs in her quota of four overs. Having already accumulated 134 fantasy points, Renuka Singh will be a smart pick at just 8.5 credits.
Top Tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
As far as all-rounders are concerned, India captain Harmanpreet Kaur pips Nida Dar of Pakistan. The 33-year-old scored a scintillating fifty against Australia to help India post a competitive total on the board. At 9.5 credits, Harmanpreet will be a quality investment as she will look to add to her fantasy tally of 86 points.
For the wicket-keeper spot, Pakistan’s Muneeba Ali will be the preferred choice over India’s Yastika Bhatia. Apart from being a safe wicket-keeper, Muneeba Ali can also contribute with the bat at the top of the order. The Pakistan wicket-keeper will be a valuable addition to any fantasy team at 9 credits.
IN-W vs PK-W playing XI (probable)
India Women playing XI (probable): Smriti Mandhana, Shafali Verma, Yastika Bhatia (wicket-keeper), Harmanpreet Kaur (captain), Jemimah Rodrigues, Deepti Sharma, Harleen Deol, Radha Yadav, Meghna Singh, Rajeshwari Gayakwad, Renuka Singh
Pakistan Women playing XI (probable): Iram Javed, Muneeba Ali (wicket-keeper), Omaima Sohail, Bismah Maroof (captain), Nida Dar, Aliya Riaz, Ayesha Naseem, Fatima Sana, Tuba Hassan, Diana Baig, Anam Amin
