ML-W vs SIN-W Dream11: Malaysia look to complete a sweep of the three match series today against a clearly inferior Singapore outfit when the two sides clash in the 3rd T20 today.
For Singapore, playing in the Saudari Cup has always been a harrowing time. The side have conventionally always been trounced by Malaysia, failing to win a single series till date and the latest instalment of the marquee series has transpired no different.
After losing the opening encounter by 22 runs as they faltered in their run chase of 126, Singapore suffered a worse time yesterday as they went onto concede the three match T20 series to Malaysia. In what was a dismal batting performance by them, one where their quest to pile up a big score never took off, the side ended up scrambling to a mere 91 in their allocated overs despite only losing three wickets.
A severe lack of intent from their top-order ended up pummelling the side to a 9 wicket defeat with Malaysia needing only 13.5 overs to peel off the paltry target, ending up comprehensively sealing the series in their favour. And as the two sides step out to the middle one last time, Malaysia will be looking to emanate another clinical showing and complete a sweep of the series against an opponent which has been tepid at best in its approach.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
Malaysia showed yesterday that if you are ready to apply yourself on this wicket and bide your time out here, runs will come by easily on a wicket which has played sluggishly and slowly till now. Overall with this being the third match in as many days on this surface, the wickets is bound to assist the spinners today and massively open up for the spinners as play is scoured.
Toss hasn’t made a huge difference with the side chasing winning and losing on the two occasions apiece but the team winning the toss today will be looking to bat first.

ML-W vs SIN-W Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
Although Malaysia’s Baret comes across as the most efficient bat across the three available options, there is a solid chance of her not getting a bat in this encounter with Malaysia’s top-order dominating Singapore yesterday. This sees us pick out Wan Julia from the side due to her involvement with the gloves and the fact that Singapore are prone to tumble and suffer double blows in this clash.
ML-W vs SIN-W Dream11 Batswomen
After yesterday’s clash and the way the opening encounter of the series transcended, we have decided to dole out a majority of top-order players from Malaysia for this particular encounter. This sees us bring in Mahirah Ismail from the side while from Singapore we have gone in with their duo of Rajeshwari Butler and Piumi Gurusinghe.
While Butler was their top scorer in yesterday’s clash, Gurusinghe showed immense technique and application in the series opener, seeing the two emerge as the best picks from Singapore for the series culminator.
ML-W vs SIN-W Dream11 All-Rounders
With her holding the identity of both the top wicket taker and top run getter across the two sides, GK Diviya from Singapore was always going to be our first pick for this encounter. The all-rounder is the best player across both these outfits by some distance, putting in two riveting displays across the course of Singapore’s life in the series, one which includes 45 runs in the first match.
She’s accompanied by Dhavina Sharma who has raked in three wickets till now while Malaysia will be represented by Mas Elysa and Winifred Duraisingam. Both the players were pivotal to Malaysia’s consummate success yesterday, contributing with both the bat and ball to show their penchant for the game and rousing abilities as players.
Along with this, Winfred, the side’s captain also comes out to open both the batting and bowling facets of her side, making her an impeccable pick to indulge in for this content.
ML-W vs SIN-W Dream11 Bowling Order
With Singapore looking extremely meek and tepid in the batting order, a conundrum they haven’t been able to address for two matches now, we were always going to get in two bowlers from Malaysia. Nur Arianna Natsya and Wan Nor Zulaika are both picked up by us with Zulaika snaring two wickets in the opening match of the series.
Elsewhere, while we did consider Smruthi Radhakrishnan from Singapore given the fact that she is tasked with both opening the batting and bowling for her side, she’s been ineffective for two matches now, seeing us get in Malaysia’s Nur Nadihirah to complete our side for the day.
ML-W vs SIN-W Dream11 Captain And Vice-Captain
GK Diviya continues to remain our side’s captain while there is a chance in the vice-captain’s role with it going to Elysa for this one.
