Pakistan women (PK-W) will lock horns with South Africa women (SA-W) in the ninth match of the ICC Women’s ODI World Cup 2022 at the Bay Oval in Mount Maunganui, New Zealand on Friday, March 11. The match will start at 6:30 AM IST.
Led by Bismah Maroof, Pakistan women have made a disappointing start to their ICC Women’s World Cup 2022 campaign losing both their matches so far. While they suffered a 107-run thrashing against arch-rivals India in their opening encounter, the Women in Green were beaten by seven wickets by Australia women in their second match of the tournament.
On the other hand, South Africa women will be high on confidence after they defeated Bangladesh women by 32 runs in their first match of the marquee ICC tournament. The Sune Luus-led side are currently placed fourth in the points table while Pakistan women are languishing at the bottom of the eight-team competition.
PK-W vs SA-W Dream11 prediction
South Africa women have completely dominated Pakistan women in One-Day Internationals (ODIs), winning 18 of the 24 matches that they have played so far. Pakistan women have managed just four victories while one match ended in a tie and the other was abandoned.
Going by past record and recent form, South Africa women are expected to win the match on Friday.
PK-W vs SA-W Dream11 team tips for ICC Women’s World Cup 2022
Top tip: Best batter
South Africa women’s Laura Wolvaardt will be the batter to watch out for in this clash. The 22-year-old opening batter played a 41-run knock off 52 balls against Bangladesh women in their opening match to help her side set a competitive total on the board. Wolvaardt has accrued 50 fantasy points and will be a worthy fantasy pick at 9.5 credits.
Top Tip: Best bowler
Ayabonga Khaka was the wrecker-in-chief for South Africa women in their first march of ICC Women’s World Cup 2022. The right-arm medium pacer picked four wickets for just 32 runs in her quota of 10 overs to help South Africa secure a 32-run victory against Bangladesh women on Saturday. Having already accumulated 134 fantasy points, picking Ayabonga Khaka for the encounter against Pakistan women is a no-brainer.
Top Tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
As far as all-rounders are concerned, Pakistan women captain Bismah Maroof will be the overwhelming choice. She played a good innings against Australia women, scoring an unbeaten 78 off 122 balls to help her side put up somewhat of a respectable total on the board. Maroof will look to continue her impressive form against South Africa women on Friday.
For the wicket-keeper spot, South Africa women’s Trisha Chetty pips Sidra Nawaz of Pakistan women. Apart from her wicket-keeping responsibilities, Chetty can play valuable knocks coming lower down the batting order.
PK-W vs SA-W probable playing XI
PK-W playing XI (probable): Sidra Ameen, Nahida Khan, Bismah Maroof (captain), Omaima Sohail, Nida Dar, Aliya Riaz, Fatima Sana, Diana Baig, Sidra Nawaz (wicketkeeper), Nashra Sandhu, Anam Amin
SA-W playing XI (probable): Laura Wolvaardt, Tasmin Britz, Lara Goodall, Sune Luus (captain), Mignon du Preez, Marizanne Kapp, Chloe Tryon, Trisha Chetty (wicket-keeper), Shabnim Ismail, Masabata Klaas, Ayabonga Khaka
