TL-W vs NAM-W Dream11 : Firm favourites for a win today, Thailand look to make it two wins on the bounce today and veer clear at the top of the league standings.
For Thailand, the ICC Women’s World Twenty20 Qualifiers couldn’t have begun any more fruitfully. The side registered a clinical performance in their league opener yesterday, one which saw them earn not only all the points from the encounter but propel their net run-rate as well, something which will serve the side judiciously in the larger scheme of things.
Playing in a rain hampered against Netherlands yesterday, Thailand’s openers showed why the side is considered as one of the likeliness outfits to seal their berth in the top 2 places of the marquee qualification process. The two ended up piling on 76 runs in between them in 9 overs, c run chase Netherlands were never able to get behind as they faltered to 46-5, handing Thailand a 30 run win.
Elsewhere their opponents on the day, Namibia were not so fortunate, falling on the wrong side of the result against a mighty Ireland outfit. Piling a mere 83 runs on the scoreboard, Ireland ended up making a mockery of the target set by Namibia, winning with over 5 overs and 7 wickets to spare.
The batting performance was a misdemeanour for Namibia, a showing which is bound to make things jittery for them today as well. They are against a side of staunch stature, one of the most promising sides in the Asian region, an outfit which will spare no expense in getting their second straight win of the tournament today.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
Rains lashed the ground the entire of yesterday, making play a travesty with play only possible in patches and we could be in for similar treatment today as well. With there being wetness on the ground, the pacers will flourish in the early exchanges with the new ball moving around and making batting a qualm.
Along with this the spinners will enjoy their time out in the middle as well with runs on the scoreboard being worth gold over here, seeing the side winning the toss choosing to bat first.

TL-W vs NAM-W Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
Namibia’s captain and wicket-keeper, Yasmeen Khan is our pick for this facet. Although she didn’t perform well yesterday, Thailand’s wicket-keeper comes way to down the order, a position which might see her not be required to step out to the middle with the bat at all. Yasmeen managed to stick it out for 12 balls yesterday, a short but promising innings where she showed the guile needed t bat on this tricky track.
TL-W vs NAM-W Dream11 Batswomen
With a match winning 76 run partnership in between them yesterday, both of Thailand’s openers were massively impressive. The two used their expansive range of strokeplay and wrist work to mince out Netherlands’ bowling unit and leave it in tatters, seeing us rope in both Nattakan Chantam and Naruemol Chaiwai for this clash.
Chaiwai got 26 while Chantam top scored for her side with 42 in 32 balls, an innings which was laden with a slew of boundaries. Elsewhere we have opted for Namibia’s opener Adri van der Merwe who was unlucky to be run-out for 14 runs, a knock were she showed ample glimpses of her skill set.
TL-W vs NAM-W Dream11 All-Rounders
The real gold quarry of Thailand’s side, it was only befitting for us to roll in a trivalent of players from the side given their affinity to contribute with both the bat and ball for their side. Number 3 bat Sornnarin Tippoch makes an advent into our side alongside the duo of Chanida Sutthiruang and who snared 3-5 yesterday and Nattaya Boochatham.
Elsewhere our lone pick from Namibia is of Petro Enright after her 20 runs yesterday saw her dig it out and bide her time out in the middle.
