Australia W

After clinching the ODI series, Australia Women will be looking to continue their winning momentum when they face Pakistan in the opening T20I of the three match T20I series on Tuesday. The hosts are the shortest format beast, and have recently thrashed India with a 4-1 mark. The Meg Lanning-led side have a solid head-to-head record against Pakistan Women and will be confident for another easy win. Beth Mooney was the top run-getter for Australia in the ODI series and will be Australia’s greatest asset in the top order.

Australia have named an unchanged team from the ODI series and will go full-force in Tuesday’s game. Australia’s top order are in great form and the likes of captain Meg Lanning, Beth Mooney, Ashleigh Gardner, Tahlia McGrath and Grace Harris are expected to score bulk of runs. On the bowling front, Alana King, Kim Garth, Ashleigh Gardner, Megan Schutt and Darcie Brown will take the charge with the new ball in hand.

Pakistan W

Pakistan W haven’t enjoyed any great success in the T20I format, and are presently seated at the seventh position in the Women’s T20I rankings. The Bismah Maroof-led side will walk into the clash on back of a series defeat against Ireland where the latter thrashed them with a 2-1 mark. The visitors will be the underdog side against World’s no.01 ranked T20I Women’s team. Pakistan played their previous game against Australia in Commonwealth Games 2022 and recorded a 44 runs defeat.

Pakistan will be eager to produce their A-Game and take an early lead in the series. In the batting department, the side will be relying on the likes of Nida Dar, Bismah Maroof, Muneeba Ali, and Sidra Ameen to deliver the bulk of the runs. All-rounder Nida Dar is leading run-scorer for Pakistan women in the T20 Format and will be player to watchout in Pakistan’s camp. Pakistan have some hopes with the bowlers and Tuba Hassan alongside Nida Dar will be clinical in Pakistan’s success.

Topbets Prediction

Australia women will be outright favorites to win their game against Pakistan women. With likes of Meg Lanning, Ellyse Perry, Ashleigh Gardner and Alana King in their rank, Australia women will be keen to dominate the proceedings with bat and ball. Unless Pakistan can spring some surprises, Australia will be the clear favorites to pick up a thumping win in this match and the series as well.
