ENGW vs PAKW Match Preview

England Women are currently in second position in the International Cricket Council's rankings for WODI teams. Pakistan are a lot lower in 10th position. That's a big gap, but there isn't that much separating them between bat and ball in reality.

As a priority, be sure to get a strong opener into your Dream11 team selection. Tammy Beaumont is an excellent choice. She put in a characteristically brisk cameo in the previous completed match and is primed for another big innings here. She should know conditions in Chelmsford relatively well.

For two world-class all-rounders, look no further than Charlie Dean and Nida Dar. Dean is one of the best off-spinners in the women's game and Dar took three key wickets in the previous match. Dar could be your vice-captain, too, if you're going for Heather Knight as captain.

Alice Capsey an Muneeba Ali are solid middle-order options. They were England Women and Pakistan Women's top scorers, respectively, in the previous WODI. Capsey is arguably more attacking than Ali, but both are equally valuable through the middle overs.

Maia Boucher and Nat Sciver-Brunt showed promising signs of converting to big knocks in the series opener, only to fall as that promise got going. Both of them, and a few others, will be mindful of following through and converting this time. 

Get Amy Jones as the wicketkeeper for your Dream11 team selection. She has been remarkably consistent with the bat and behind the stumps lately. Jones hit 92 not out, 48 and 50 against New Zealand Women recently. She is a veritable livewire behind the stumps, too.

Weather Report

No rain is forecast in Chelmsford on matchday. A day prior, though, wet weather is anticipated in the area. This could affect the preparation of the pitch, which might be a bit under-prepared on matchday.

Pitch Report

A first-innings total of 200-plus should be competitive at the County Ground, where it is anticipated both teams will field two specialist slow bowlers. The side to win the toss will likely choose to bat first.

Notable stats

Dean in form

Dean is just 23 years old and, as one of the best off-spinners in the women's game, has already taken more than 50 WODI wickets. This tally includes one five-wicket haul and for four-fors.

Team News

England will likely pick Lauren Filer ahead of Lauren Bell again. Whether or not Pakistan Women change their XI remains in the balance.

Dream11 Prediction

Top Picks

Tammy Beaumont: Get the hard-hitting, experienced England Women opener into your Dream11 team selection and anticipate a top knock.

Nida Dar: The Pakistan Women captain is a valuable asset with bat and ball. Her leadership expertise, of course, means a lot for the tourists.

Muneeba Ali: The Pakistan Women middle-order batter has hit a century in WODI cricket and was her team's top run-scorer in the previous completed match of this series.
