SA-W vs PK-W Dream11 Prediction
South Africa will look to qualify for the semi-final when they meet Pakistan in the 15th match of the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup. On the other hand, Pakistan has done a reasonable job in the tournament so far. They started off with an impressive victory against West Indies. However, they succumbed to morale shattering defeat against England and will look to get back to winning ways. Pakistan will miss the services of their regular skipper Bismah Maroof which could be a huge loss for them.
On the other South Africa has played some impressive brand of cricket in the tournament so far defeating Thailand and England. They are currently sitting at the top of the points table with two wins from two matches. However, Pakistan after their win against West Indies would like to believe that they have some realistic chance of going through to the next round.
Pakistan will have their task cut out against a strong South Africa side who pulled of a stunning victory against England from a precarious situation. We should be witnessing a good contest between bat and the ball and Pakistan should be eyeing to forget the outing against England and come out all guns blazing.
Pitch Conditions and Toss
The pitch at the Showground Ground at Sydney has been considerably on the slower side. The Indian eves were quite dominant during the match against New Zealand when they defended 133 to win the game. The pitch tends to get slower as the game progresses. Hence the team winning the toss could be tempted to bat and set a decent total on the board.
