BD-W vs SC-W Dream11 : Decisive clash set to light up concluding day of the qualifiers as two unbeaten sides clash heads for top spot today
When the ICC Women’s World Twenty20 Qualifier had made an advent, the level of competition and feisty encounters speculated from today’s clash is exactly what the ICC had on its mind. And with Scotland and Bangladesh squaring off against each other to consolidate their position in next year’s ICC Women’s T20 World Cup, this clash is expected to light up the culminating day of the marquee tournamnet.
What adds to the intrigue of this clash is not only the resounding will to finishing in the top 2 for either side but also the fact that these two outfits are in the annuls of the league standings as of now. Both have lived upto the massive expectations accorded on them with the previous two matches for either side auguring extremely well for them.
After defeating USA by 30 runs in their tournamnet opener, Scotland fell to a 5 wicket surprising defeat to PNG after failing to defend the 101 they had put on the scoreboard. It was perhaps the biggest stunning result from the group, leaving the side squandering a massive opportunity to move one step closer to the world cup, making today’s clash a must win one for them.
Elsewhere, the only side to play yesterday after their fixture against PNG was abandoned due to lashing rainfall, Bangladesh ended up putting in a 6 run win through the DLS method to be one of the two sides to have a 100% winning record in the tournamnet. Another win today would seal their spot in the World Cup, a berth they sit on the cusp of at the moment.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
With us having rain lash the ground prior to the afternoon fixture, the likelihood of heavy cloud cover looming over the track for this encounter is a very real one. Expect the clouds to pour at some stage during the clash as well or prior to it, leaving us with either a shortened clash or a curtailed match.
It’s this narrative which will lead the side winning the toss opting to field first and make the most of the pace bowling conducive conditions in the first part of the fixture.

We have picked out both the wicket-keepers from either side over here given their role with the bat. Nigar Sultana comes out to bat at number 3 for Bangladesh and although she scored just 6 runs, her role with the gloves as well and her side’s ability to snare wickets at regular intervals saw her register 17 points in Dream 11.
Elsewhere from Scotland we have chosen Sarah Bryce for this encounter after her strong performance against USA in the side’s clinical win.

Continuing with the picks from Scotland, we have roped in Becky Glen. She scored just 4 runs in the last clash but bide her time out in the middle, showing the willingness, guile and resolve needed to craft out a big innings.
