India Women will lock horns against Thailand Women in the semi-final of the Women’s Asia Cup 2022. The match is scheduled to commence at 8:30 AM IST on October 13 at Sylhet International Cricket Stadium, Bangladesh.
India finished the league phase as table toppers with five wins and one loss. Their solitary defeat came against arch-rivals Pakistan, who will face Sri Lanka in the other semi-final.
On the other hand, Thailand’s dream run continues as they qualified for the semi-final of the Women’s Asia Cup for the first time ever. However, their qualification was aided by the abandonment of UAE’s match against Bangladesh, who were more likely to seal a semis spot with a win in that contest.
IN-W vs TL-W Dream11 prediction
The recent form of the two teams suggests that India Women will most likely emerge victorious in this encounter. Moreover, Thailand Women were bowled out for 37 runs when the two sides met earlier in the competition, with the six-time champions India winning it comfortably by nine wickets.
IN-W vs TL-W Dream11 team tips for Women’s Asia Cup 2022
Top Tip: Best batter
India’s Jemimah Rodrigues has been in fantastic form in this competition, leading the scoring charts with 188 runs in four innings with the help of two half-centuries at an average of 94 and a strike rate of 144.61. Even though the 8.5-credit player did not get a chance to bat in the previous match, she can be backed to continue her fine form here.
Top tip: Best bowler
India spinner Sneh Rana will be a top pick from the bowling department. The right-arm off-break bowler has picked up four wickets so far, at a respectable economy of 4.35, with all the wickets coming in the last two games. Furthermore, she picked up three wickets in the last clash against Thailand at a brilliant economy of 2.2. With ownership of over 80% in the fantasy teams, she can be expected to shine once agan.
Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
Deepti Sharma is our recommendation from the all-rounders’ section. The bowling all-rounder has been the stand-out performer for her side and has accumulated 80, 92, 114, 93, 43 and 73 points throughout the league stage, hinting at another top haul in this match. Available for 9 credits, she has been in fantastic form, taking 10 wickets in six matches and scoring 91 runs at a strike rate of 137.87.
Thailand Women’s Nannapat Koncharoenkai will be the preferred choice over India’s Richa Ghosh from the wicket-keepers’ roster. The 9-credit opener has been in decent touch with the bat, scoring 105 runs in six matches. Moreover, she has been involved in five run-outs and stumpings combined, along with one catch so far, indicating her key presence behind the stumps.
