INDW vs BANW Match Preview

Despite gritty knocks by Deepti Sharma and wicket-keeper Richa Ghosh, Indian Women fell painfully short by 13 runs, losing for the first time in this tournament. India's batting lineup is still stronger and its bowlers have had a lot of success against Bangladesh in the past.

Bangladesh has never defeated India in T20 cricket. This is not to say that it cannot but the chances of that happening are very low.

Weather Report

With showers predicted over the weekend, the overcast skies are likely to provide some assistance to swing bowlers. We might just see the DLS system in play during the game, and that would most probably play into an advantage for the team batting second.

Pitch Report

A flat pitch with no real help for the bowlers has been seen in Sylhet so far. That should be similar to what we get for this match as well.

Dream11 Prediction

We think India Women have a great chance of winning. Their batters should be able to dominate the Bangladeshi bowlers.

Top Picks

Smriti Mandhana - Has still to make a real contribution in the Asia Cup. She is also too good a batter to not score runs for so long. 

Jemimah Rodrigues - She is the top scorer of the tournament so far and has been quite dependable

Rumana Ahmed - She has picked up 5 wickets in 6 overs bowled so far.
