IN-W vs PK-W Dream11, Match Report, Probable Playing 11 and Best Dream 11 team for India Women vs Pakistan Women Match
The Indian colts will face Pakistan in their opening warm-up clash of the ICC T20 World Cup which will serve as a preparation for the impending mega event. They had a good time in the recently concluded tri-series also involving Australia and England. Despite their good time, India lost from a winning position in the final of the tournament. They definitely need to improve on their middle order and lower middle-order batting which was the reason behind their downfall in the final.
As it is a practice match, all the players involved with the squad will be available for selection. Pakistan has a relatively inexperienced unit and will definitely start as underdogs for the encounter. India will look to get their combination right ahead of their first game of the competition against Australia.
Pitch Conditions and Toss
The pitch at the Allan Border Field has produced very sporting wickets. In the recently concluded BBL, twice teams chased down targets of 160+ with utmost ease in the end. The team chasing might have an advantage on the pitch. However, with both teams trying to test out their combination, it will be interesting to see whether the team winning the toss bats or bowls.
