Women's World T20 Cup

Group B, Match 16: PK-W vs WI-W

Preview 

The 16th match of the Women’s World T20 Cup will see Pakistan women and West Indies women face off at Bolan Park in Paarl on Sunday.

Pakistan women secured a comprehensive 70-run victory over Ireland women in their last match, thanks to an outstanding century by Muneeba Ali, which also made her the first Pakistani women's cricket player to score a ton in a T20 World Cup. On the other hand, West Indies women comfortably won their last game by six wickets against Ireland women, with Hayley Matthews, Shamilia Connell, and K Ramharack delivering excellent performances.

The West Indies women have a significant advantage over Pakistan women in their head-to-head record, having won 10 out of the 16 times they have faced off in the T20 format, while Pakistan women have won only three times, with three matches ending in a tie.

For Pakistan women, they will rely on in-form opener Muneeba Ali, captain Bismah Maroof, power-hitter Ayesha Naseem, and all-rounders Aliya Riaz and Nida Dar to provide the bulk of the runs. Meanwhile, the spin trio of Sadia Iqbal, Nashra Sandhu, and Nida Dar will be crucial in taking important wickets.

On the other hand, the West Indies women will depend on the likes of Hayley Matthews, Chinelle Henry, wicket-keeper Rashada Williams, Shemaine Campbelle, and Shabika Gajnabi in the batting department. They will also look to their bowlers, including Shamilia Connell, K Ramharack, Hayley Matthews, Afy Fletcher, and Chinelle Henry, to provide crucial breakthroughs.

In their last match, Matthews and Connell were the star performers for the West Indies women, with Matthews scoring an unbeaten 66 off 53 balls, while Connell claimed three wickets for 24 runs. Nashra Sandhu was the pick of the bowlers for Pakistan women in their previous match, taking four wickets for 18 runs, while Muneeba Ali and Ayesha Naseem made significant contributions with the bat.

Overall, it should be an exciting match between the two teams, with both sides looking to continue their winning momentum in the tournament
