ML-W vs SIN-W Dream11 : Singapore look to restore parity in the series and keep themselves alive in the 3 match marquee tournament when the two sides clash heads in second T20 today
For Singapore and Malaysia, the three match Saudari Cup comes bearing with it massive consequences, not just due to the opportunity of walking away with the glistening trophy under their arms at the culmination of the frontier tournament. For these two sides on the ascendancy in the women’s cricketing fraternity, this tournament is also a chance to showcase their immense pool of capabilities infront of the big stage.
Earmarked as the two of the most promising and upcoming sides in the Asian region, both Singapore and Malaysia have reposed the faith entrusted in them by the International Cricket Council. It’s what adds to the intrigue and excitement of this series with both the sides engaging in a riveting brand of cricket, one which promises to make today’s encounter a jaffer of a clash.
With the hosts trailing the series 1-0 after being put down in the series opener, for Singapore, today’s encounter is a must win one. The side know a win takes paramount precedence over everything else for them today after failing to navigate past the 127 run target set to them in the opener, seeing their run chase being stifled at 104-7 to lose by 22 runs.
What will especially perturb Singapore after that display in the way their top-order fell apart, leaving the side languishing at 38-4 with no apart from two bats going onto score 10 and above. It was a harrowing run chase, one the side will be looking to rectify as they head out scouring to replace parity in the tournament and infusing fresh life for themselves.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
A surface which offers something for both the batters and bowlers, the track over here usually plays out good in the first part of the encounter for batting with the surface opening up and crumbling to make way for the spinners. The ball will spin around, making batting an apathy as the match traverses and runs its course.
With the average score while batting first being 107 and this being the second encounter in the space of a few days over here, expect this to be a low scoring match with the side winning the toss opting to bat first today.

With both these outfits levelly balanced and playing out a closely contested encounter in the first match of the series, we envisage today’s clash being contested similarly. While both these side’s have extremely formidable bowling units, what favours Malaysia on this surface is the depth they come with in their batting order with extra runs being equivalent to gold on this track.

ML-W vs SIN-W Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
With both the wicket-keepers holding the same batting positions in their units in the middle-order, our pick was based keeping in mind two factors. We wanted to go in with the steadier bat along with the better option with the gloves, seeing us opt for Malaysia’s Christina Baret for this encounter.
ML-W vs SIN-W Dream11 Batswomen
With their being a massive void of exceptional players in this facet from either side with no one ready to take accountability in the previous clash, we have decided to keep this segment of our side down to the bare minimum of three requisite players.
One of the only two players to register two figures infront of her name in the previous clash for Singapore, Piumi Gurusinghe comes into our side from the country. What impressed us particularly were the 24 balls she squared off against, showing the necessary technique and application to play out a determined innings in the face of adversary.
Elsewhere our duo from Malaysia consists of opener Yusrina Yaakop and Mahirah Ismail after she managed 11 runs in the first clash.

The one this which was made clearly apparent from the opener was the fact that this tournament is going to be one where indulging in all-rounders is going to massively benefit our Dream 11 side. Both these sides come packed with some specialist all-rounders, players who encapsulate a wondrous skill set with both the bat and all.
This sees us go in with the four all-rounders, the two from either side with our duo from Singapore constituting of GK Diviya and Dhavina Sharma. GK Diviya was the most impressive player from the side in the bygone clash, scoring 45 runs with the bat and taking the 1 wicket as well, a complete and well-rounded performance which see us pick her up instantly.
Elsewhere, Malaysia’s top scorer with 37 well crafted runs, Mas Elysa is selected by us along with new ball bowler, Winifred Duraisingam. Winifred both opens her side’s batting and bowling facets, making the team’s leader as excellent player to opt for in this segment.
ML-W vs SIN-W Dream11 Bowling Order
A player similar to her is Singapore’s Smruthi Radhakrishnan, making her the lone player to be snared by us from the side in the bowling segment. Elsewhere with Malaysia bound to send Singapore tumbling yet again, we have brought in Ainna Hamizah after an incredible sore of 37 with the bat and the one wicket to go along with it.
Nur Arianna Natsya completes our picks from the side for this clash.
