IN-W vs BD-W Dream11 Prediction: India are all set to play their second match of the showpiece event in Australia.
Note : S Mandhan is not playing so we have changed the team accordingly, please see the image below
India are riding high after their sensational victory against Australia in the opener of the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup and will look to put up another memorable performance in their 2nd match of the competition against Bangladesh when they meet their neighbours in a group clash later today. There is certainly no doubt about the fact that India is one of the strongest contenders of the tournament and it Bangladesh will have their task cut out.
The batting department didn’t rise to the occasion against Australia and it might be on the back of the might of the top 4 of the Indian batting line-up. Smriti Mandhana who had an off day against Australia will look to get back among runs and get India off to a solid start along with Shafali Verma.
Poonam Yadav will again have a huge impact on the game. It was her match-winning spell against the Aussies which turned the tide in India’s favour. On the other hand, Bangladesh will start off their campaign today and will look to get their act going against a strong Indian side. Bangladesh has some impressive players in their ranks but the skill sets of the Indian players are a notch above than their counterparts and they will start as the outright favourites.
Pitch Conditions and Toss
The surface at the WACA Ground in Perth has been predominantly helpful for the fast bowlers. We should witness a good battle between the bat and the ball which has been the case on most occasions. The team chasing went onto win on both occasions at this venue so far and there will be a temptation for the captain to win the toss and put the oppositions in. However, it might backfire if the team batting first puts up a solid show.
Probable Playing XI’s
Shafali Verma, Smriti Mandhana, Jemimah Rodrigues, Harmanpreet Kaur (C), Deepti Sharma, Veda Krishnamurthy, Shikha Pandey, Taniya Bhatia, Arundhati Reddy, Poonam Yadav, Rajeshwari Gayakwad

IN-W vs BD-W Dream11 Prediction
IN-W vs BD-W Dream XI Wicket-keepers
Tanya Bhatia and Nigar Sultana will be the two wicket-keepers in our dream XI team. Bhatia has been a champion behind the stumps and it was quite evident during her exceptional wicket-keeping display against defending champions Australia. She is also a decent batswoman and will look to score some runs. Ideally, she will like the top 4 of the Indian batting line-up to do the job for his side.
Nigar Sultana, on the other hand, has been an impressive performer for Bangladesh. She can score some quick runs and her T20 record is pretty impressive. She will look to add some important runs for her team.
Jahanara Alam: “Our nation is a cricket-crazy nation. We can do something big.”

IN-W vs BD-W Dream XI Batswomen
The two Indian openers Smriti Mandhana and Shafali Verma will be part of the dream XI team. Mandhana missed out in the opening encounter against Australia but has been in great run-scoring form. She will look to get back among runs.
On the other hand, teenage sensation Shafali Verma looked in ominous touch against the Aussies before perishing to a mistimed shot. Her form at the top will be very important for India in today’s encounter and the rest of the tournament.
The only Bangladesh player in this category will be Murshida Khatun. She scored a fluent 43 against Pakistan in the warm-up clash and will look to continue the good work.
IN-W vs BD-W Dream XI All-rounders
Harmanpreet Kaur, Deepti Sharma, and Rumana Ahmed will be the three all-rounders in our dream XI team. The Indian skipper hasn’t been in the best run-scoring form. However, she is a sensational striker of the ball and given her class and abilities a big knock should be just around the corner. She can also chip in with some crucial overs if needed.
Deepti Sharma has been a class act for the Indian colts. She batted brilliantly against the Aussies and scored 49. She also bowled pretty well and will look to continue the exceptional work.
Rumana Ahmed has been one of the most consistent performers for Bangladesh. She has bagged 55 wickets in 61 T20I matches and has also chipped in with some crucial knocks.
IN-W vs BD-W Dream XI bowlers
Poonam Yadav, Shikha Pandey, and Jahanara Alam will be the three bowlers in our dream XI team. Poonam was the difference in the first game against Australia. She spun a web around the Aussie batters and will look to do much of the same in today’s clash. She bagged 4 wickets for just 18 runs against the Aussies.
On the other hand, Shikha Pandey also bowled brilliantly and finished with 3/14. Her bowling will be important to India’s chances. Meanwhile, Jahanara Alam has been a good bowler for Bangladesh and has some wicket-taking skills.
Captain and Vice-captain
Smriti Mandhana will be the captain while Poonam Yadav will be the vice-captain.
