BAA vs FAL Match Preview

Skipper Lauren Winfield-Hill got a good start but failed to convert them into a big inning, while the two big hitters of the team, Deandra Dottin and Nigar Sultana got out cheaply to leave the Barmy Army reeling at 35 for 3. However, Kavisha Egodage and Shemaine Campbelle played well during the middle overs to guide the team to a respectable total of 135 in their 20 overs.

Campbelle was the top-scorer with 33 runs off just 25 deliveries. The team will expect another good inning from here in this game. Talking about the bowling, Tara Norris and Rumana Ahmed picked up 2 wickets each while Fatima Sana and Dottin to chipped in with wickets of their own.

The Falcons are off to a great start as they defeated arch-rivals Tornadoes in their opening encounter on Monday. It was a clinical performance by the team under the leadership of Suzie Bates as they dominated the proceedings right from the first innings.

Theertha Satish scored a brilliant half-century and was well supported by the likes of Mariko Hill and Nannapat Koncharoenkai as the team posted a match-winning total of 150 runs. The Falcons will expect a better display from Chamari Athapaththu and Danni Wyatt, who showed some excellent form before this tournament.

The presence of Marizanne Kapp and Sornnarin Tippoch gives depth to their batting. The duo was excellent with the ball in the last match, picking up 3 wickets a piece, and will be hoping for a similar performance here.

Weather Report

The weather is expected to remain cloudy and we can expect showers throughout the day.

Pitch Report

The surface at the Kowloon Cricket Club isn’t the easiest to bat on, and the batters will need to get their eye in before they start hitting the big shots. Once they are settled, the consistent bounce allows them to play their shots quite naturally. The bowlers who bowl a good line and length will be rewarded here. A score of around 150 can be considered a par score here.

Dream11 Prediction

We are backing the Falcons to win here. They have a strong batting line-up at their disposal and the middle order was in excellent form in the last match. The presence of Marizanne Kapp and Sornnarin Tippoch gives them an added advantage in both, the batting as well as the bowling.
