AUSW vs PAKW Match Prediction - Jan 16, 2023

Australia will host Pakistan in the best of three ODI games, with two in Brisbane and one in Sydney. It’s been almost a year since these two countries met, with Australia winning in March 2022 by 7 wickets and 92 balls remaining.

The biggest news for the Australian squad is that batter/wicketkeeper, Alyssa Healy, will miss the series due to recovery from a calf injury. She has, however, confirmed that she’ll be ready for the T20 World Cup in February.

AUSW vs PAKW Team Previews

Australia Women

The Australian Women’s team is still regarded as the best in the world right now, and it’s hard to disagree with big names like Meg Lanning, Tahlia McGrath, Beth Mooney, and Ashleigh Gardner.

Australia’s form is sizzling hot, as the team has won their last five ODI games, with easy victories over the likes of England, West Indies, Bangladesh, South Africa, and India.

In terms of batting, the biggest threats will be Lanning and Mooney. Lanning is one of the most experienced in the side and will captain the team, as she’s got a solid batting average of 53.13 for ODI games and made 4,463 total runs. Although she’s played fewer matches, Mooney is catching up fast, already with 1,750 runs and an average of 50.00.

For bowling, the team will look to Jess Jonassen and Alana King. Jonassen, also a decent batter, has picked up 131 ODI wickets with an average of 19.67. King has only played 11 international ODI innings, but has taken 14 wickets and an average of 25.50.

Pakistan Women

Pakistan has also been playing well lately, with four wins out of their last five ODI matches, including victories over Sri Lanka and Ireland. It’s true that they’ll have a tough time against Australia, but there’s a good amount of talent on the roster.

Sidra Ameen is a good batter with 1,281 total runs in ODI games and a 27.25 average. She’ll have nice support from Bismah Maroof, who has 3,017 runs and an average of 30.17 from 117 innings.

The bowlers likely to trouble the Aussie batters the most are Fatima Sana and Nida Dar. Sana has 41 wickets and an average of 25.17 from 28 innings, while Dar has 89 wickets and an average of 30.38 from 95 innings.

There’s good bounce on this pitch that should see a fairly even balance between the batters and bowlers. The Aussies will be more used to these pitches with the BBL games. 

AUSW vs PAKW Betting Tips

We do think that Australia is likely to win, as they have beaten Pakistan five times in a row and have such a strong squad. But honestly, the odds for picking Australia to win are so low that it’s hardly worth the time, money, or effort.

Bet on Pakistan to win, as the odds are great and you never know. It’s better to make smaller bets on who will be the top scorer, take the most wickets, etc.
