Cricket Betting Tips and Match Prediction for ICC Women's T20 WC Australia v Pakistan
Australia are not only the overwhelming favorites to win their fixture against Pakistan but they are one of the favourites to clinch the World T20 title.
Australia have a way more settled combination as compared to their opponents, a mix of youngsters and experienced players. Skipper Meg Lanning is a real star who already has three titles in her kitty.
Lanning led the team close to a T20 World Cup title in 2016 as well but they wete stunned by Windies in the final. She is renown for her batting but it is actually her bowling that is a real plus.
Megan Schutt is a name which is fast growing in the Australian setup. She is the top-ranked bowler in the ICC Women's T20 rankings and is at the second spot in ODIs. Sophie Molineux is another rising star who is just 20 year years old but her left-arm spin has brought her 11 wickets in the last nine games.
On the other hand, Pakistan have lot of old school players but lack the power hitters that are essential for the shortest format of the game. A couple of youngsters have shown some spark in the recent matches and this is why the team has been able to better their T20I record. Despite that, they have won just five of their 20 T20 Internationals.
Their success would largely depend on spinners Anam Amin and Nida Dar who are part of the top 10 ICC T20 bowlers.
Let's have a look at the squads of both teams.
Pakistan- Sana Mir(c), Aiman Anwer, Aliya Riaz, Anam Amin, Ayesha Zafar, Diana Baig, Javeria Khan, Muneeba Ali, Nahida Khan, Nashra Sandhu, Natalia Pervaiz, Nida Dar, Omaima Sohail, Sidra Ameen, Sidra Nawaz, Bismah Maroof
Australia- Meg Lanning(c), Rachael Haynes, Nicole Bolton, Ashleigh Gardner, Alyssa Healy, Delissa Kimmince, Sophie Molineux, Beth Mooney, Ellyse Perry, Megan Schutt, Elyse Villani, Tayla Vlaeminck, Georgia Wareham, Nicola Carey
