Host nation Bangladesh is on the verge of a historical T20I series clean sweep as they prepare to clash against Pakistan in the third and final match at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram this Sunday.
Having already secured their maiden T20I series win against Pakistan, Bangladesh will aim to maintain their formidable form in this dead rubber, while Pakistan looks to salvage some pride in a bid to secure a consolation victory.
The home side, with a commanding 2-0 lead in the three-match series, is likely to maintain their strongest possible lineup for this encounter.
Bangladesh’s batting strength will predominantly rely on key players such as openers Shamima Akter and Murshida Khatun, skipper Nigar Sultana, Sobhana Mostary, and all-rounder Shorna Akter to drive their run-scoring in this fixture.
Notably, Shorna Akter’s crucial innings in the previous match, along with contributions from others like Murshida Khatun, Ritu Moni, Shamima Akter, and Sobhana Mostary, showcased their batting depth.
On the bowling front, Bangladesh will look to the expertise of Marufa Akter and their spin quartet – Sultana Khatun, Rabeya Khan, Shorna Akter, and Nahida Akter – to disrupt the visitors’ batting line.
The previous match saw left-arm orthodox Nahida Akter and off-spinner Rabeya Khan excel with two wickets each, setting the tone for Bangladesh’s bowling performance.
Predicted Playing XI for Bangladesh:
Nigar Sultana (c & wk), Nahida Akter, Sobhana Mostary, Shamima Sultana, Ritu Moni, Shorna Akter, Fahima Khatun, Murshida Khatun, Rabeya Khan, Marufa Akter, Sultana Khatun
Pakistan, facing back-to-back defeats, is determined to showcase a better batting performance in the series finale. The side will heavily rely on experienced players like Bisma Maroof, openers Muneeba Ali and veteran Sidra Ameen, Iram Javed, Natalie Pervaiz, all-rounder Aliya Riaz, and captain Nida Dar to bolster their run-scoring.
In the last match, Bismah Maroof emerged as the standout performer for Pakistan with a resilient knock of 30 runs, followed by contributions from Iram Javed and Umm-e-Hani.
The team’s bowling, led by pacer Diana Baig in the previous match, will look to the spin quartet of Nashra Sandhu, Nida Dar, Sadia Iqbal, and Umm-e-Hani to secure crucial breakthroughs.
Predicted Playing XI for Pakistan:
Sidra Ameen, Muneeba Ali (wk), Bismah Maroof, Nida Dar (c), Aliya Riaz, Iram Javed, Natalia Pervaiz, Umm-e-Hani, Diana Baig, Nashra Sandhu, Sadia Iqbal
Pitch and Weather Analysis:
The wicket for the game is anticipated to offer a decent platform for batters, complemented by some assistance for the slow bowlers. The batsmen, however, are likely to encounter a challenging task, needing to toil hard for their runs on a relatively sluggish pitch.
In conjunction with the playing surface, the weather forecast for Sunday’s clash presents an ideal scenario, with bright and sunny conditions expected. A humidity level around 62% signifies a pleasant and conducive atmosphere for cricket, fostering an environment for competitive play between the two teams.
Venue and Toss Anticipation:
Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium has proven to be a favorable ground for the host, Bangladesh women, who have previously secured victories in the matches played at this venue. The toss is anticipated to be crucial, with both teams keen to win it, opt to bat first, and aim to set a competitive score exceeding 120 runs.
With Bangladesh women having secured victories in the first two encounters, they aim to maintain their winning momentum and clinch a whitewash in the T20I series. In contrast, Pakistan women enter this crucial fixture aiming to bring their best game forward, striving to avoid a possible whitewash by displaying a strong performance.
The stakes are high as Bangladesh eyes a 3-0 whitewash, but Pakistan is determined to counteract and prevent such an outcome. The stage is set for an intense battle, where the weather and pitch conditions are expected to play a significant role in deciding the fate of this T20I series finale.
