Pakistan W

Pakistan W will be up against Women-In-Blue in the most-awaited cross swords of the Women’s World Cup 2022. Team Pakistan looks rock-solid, as Bismah Maroof-led side won their both warm-up schedules and would march towards league match setting with bolstered confidence. Aliya Riaz exhibited her all-round ability by bowling economical spells and contributing 62 runs and 45 runs in both warm-up fixtures.

Women-In-Green would be aiming to kick-off a dream run by registering their sole win against India in a World Cup tussle. Pakistan has named a young-dominant side for the World Cup 2022 challenge and players including Nahida Khan, Muneeba Ali and Sidra Ameen would be under watch. Aliya Riaz impressed spectators in the warm-up matches and is expected to further stretch her great run with bat and ball both.   

India W

Team India will kick-off its league matches tenure with a cracking contest paired with arch-rivals Pakistan. Mithali Raj & Girls are already counted amongst favorites to lift the trophy this ICC World Cup season and they have shown their mettle with two perfect wins in the warm-up setting. Team India brings-up its first warm-up win in a close match against South Africa that winds-up with 2 runs win for India. In the next match, India crushed West Indies with an 81 runs thumping win where Smriti Mandhana and Deepti Sharma racked-up fantastic fifties.

India W carries unbeaten record against Pakistan in the ICC events and would like to maintain the ‘Status Quo’. Senior Indian W batters including Harmanpreet Kaur and Smriti Mandhana have found their form recently that fancies India’s chances of winning the Super-Sunday fixture. On bowling front, Pooja Vastrakar and Rajeshwari Gayakwad were fabulous in practice matches and Jhulan Goswami’s experience will prove a blessing for ‘Women in Blue’.       

Topbets Prediction

A gripping 50-over contest will unfold when two of the arch-rivals will be against each other in Sunday’s cricket bonanza. Both India and Pakistan would be eying to tackle league stage matches with a stellar win. However, viewing India W supremacy in white-ball cricket and scaled-up performances from Mithali Raj & Associates names them probable winners of the match. Previous games at this venue suggest that track will be batters assisting but some grooving turn is expected for spin bowlers as the game progresses. Both teams will look forward to bat first upon winning toss and 250-260 runs being the idle score.
