WI-W vs PAK-W Preview: Unpredictability might reign supreme as Windies meet their match Pakistan
WI-W vs PAK-W Preview: Hayley Matthews right at the top and in some fine form with a match winking and unbeaten fifty right next to her name (as seen in the last game).
Chinelle Henry at number four proving no longer to be an experiment but a right move made at just the right time.
Afy Fletcher being among the wickets with Chedean Nation’s replacement Britney Cooper making it into the side at the right time.
Pakistan have multiple problems if not strenuous woes staring at them in what’ll be their last group game just ahead of the big stage called semis.
But then it’s one capricious and utterly unpredictable side meeting another.
It’s a contest where the Windies women’s captain will know well that what stares her bowlers – not always disciplined, not always executing their plans to perfection – is a list of in form batters of which Muneeba Ali is right on top.
In a must win contest for both sides, perhaps self belief will prevail in the end. Yet, it ought to be contended that given their most recent win, one against Ireland, also their only one so far, the West Indies will enter the Boland Park with a spring in their step.
However, they must watch out for Bismah Maroof, who’s unequivocally the most consistent scorer for Pakistan so far.
