Match Prediction Women's T20 World Cup 2020 19th match - Pakistan v Thailand
The 19th match of the ICC Women's T20 World Cup 2020 between Pakistan and Thailand will be played at the Sydney Showground Stadium in Sydney.
Pakistan raised lot of hopes by beating West Indies by 8 wickets in the first game of the tournament. However, they since suffered a 42-run defeat against England and a 79-run defeat against South Africa to be out of contention of the semi-final.
The team is placed at the the second last place in Group B of the ICC Women's T20 World Cup points table with 2 points and a net run rate of - 0.761. They will take on Thailand who are below them. The Thai women are yet to open their account after three matches and have a net run rate of - 3.92.
The team showed some fight in their first match against West Indies despite losing by 7 wickets. But, their losses against England and South Africa by 98 and 113 runs respectively have been quite one sided.
In the absence of Bismah Maroof, Javeria Khan will lead Pakistan and is likely to be one of the top run-scorers for the team alongside Aliya Riaz. Nida Dar and Diana Baig will be their top bowling options.
