CHENNAI (92 News) – Pakistan Women will take England Women in the crucial match of Women’s World T20 2016 at Chennai’s MA Chidambaram Stadium on Sunday.
The match will begin at 7:00pm (Pakistan Standard Time). Pakistan must win this match to qualify for semifinals, while England have already booked their seat for the knockout round.
Favorites England will aim to maintain their winning momentum when they take on Pakistan in the Women’s World Twenty20 Group B clash today.
England look a strong team but Pakistan have a couple of match-winners to clinch the tie. The Pakistani top-order, which has done well so far in the competition, will hope their middle-order steps up.
Spinners Rumana Ahmed and Nahida Aktar alongside pacers Jahanara Alam and Salma Khan have to lift their game a bit more against a strong England side.
On the other hand, England have all-round strength in both their batting and bowling units. They will once again rely on experienced players like skipper Charlotte Edwards, Tammy Beaumont, Natalie Sciver and Sara Taylor.
Medium pacers Anya Shrubsole, Heather Knight and Katerine Brunt, who have done well in the ongoing tournament, will aim to deliver once again against Pakistan.
