SLW vs THAW Match Preview

Sri Lanka ended up losing their opening match against the Indian women by a rather large margin of 41 runs. However, they bounced back immediately in the next game against the UAE by winning it comfortably. They beat the UAE side by 11 runs. They are currently positioned in the 4th slot in the points table.

On the other hand, Thailand is playing their 2nd match of the competition. They started the tournament on a losing note against the Bangladesh outfit by nine wickets. They were dismissed for a paltry score of 82 runs when they batted first in their effort.

Weather Report

There is a weather forecast of rains coming down during the match. Although there is a 30% chance of rain coming down, the humidity level during the game will be close to 70%. The temperatures during the match will hover close to higher 20s. 

Pitch Report

The pitch here at the Sylhet Outer Cricket Stadium is on the slower side. Scoring runs has never been easy on this wicket because the ball does not come onto the bat. Things could get particularly tougher against the slower bowlers.

Notable stats

Performance of both sides in the last 5 games is terrible.

Both these teams have lost 4 out of the last 5 games they have played. This doesn’t speak much about the prospects of the teams in the competition.

Natthakan Chantaham has a good batting average.

Chatham is one of the few Thai players that has some experience and has done a reasonable job for her team over time. She averages 37.86 and has scored 265 runs from her last 9 games at a strike rate of 97.78.

Team News

It is expected that Sri Lanka women's cricket team will bring back their top wicket-taker O Ranashinghe for this game. The Thai team is likely to field the same side that played the last game. There don’t seem to be any other injury worries for either side.

Dream11 Prediction

These teams have faced off against each other just once before and Sri Lanka women won that game. With players such as Atapattu and Madavi in their ranks, it is going to be hard for the Thai team to even think about beating the Sri Lankan team. We will bet with the Sri Lanka women to win this game easily.

Top Picks

Chamari Atapattu: Chamari Atapattu is not only the skipper of the side for Sri Lanka women, but she is also their most experienced campaigner. Atapattu is the leading run-getter for Sri Lanka in the T20I format. She has scored 2009 runs in T20 matches from 100 games at an average of 21.77 and a strike rate of 102.9.

Inoka Ranaweera: Ranaweera was the most economical bowler on display for the Sri Lankan women's team in their last match against UAE. She bowled 3 overs and gave away just 7 runs from them and she also picked up a couple of wickets in the process. She is certainly the player to watch out for in this game.

Harshitha Madavi: Harshitha Madavi has been the best player for the Sri Lankan women's cricket team in the competition thus far with the bat. She began her campaign in the Asia Cup competition against Indians with a smallish but useful knock of 26 runs from 20 balls. Then she followed it up with a 37 in the last match against the UAE. This last inning got her the player of the match award.

Nattakan Chantam: This match will be the 50th match for Nattakan Chantam in the T20I format for Thailand. She is the only Thailand player that has taken part in the Women's T20 challenge in India. Chantam is the top scorer for Thailand in the T20I format. She is also the only batter from Thailand that has made more than 1000 runs in this format of cricket.
