SPI vs TDW Match Preview

Skipper Nicola Carey has led the team from the front and put up an excellent performance with the bat. With a total of 98, she is the top run-getter for the team. She has received good support from Bismah Mahroof in the middle order.

The Warriors have an excellent top-order batter in the form of Sophia Dunkley, but she hasn’t played to get full potential. Similarly, the form of Sarah Bryce and Natthakan Chantham remains a cause of concern for the team. The team has a formidable pace attack in the form of Ayabonga Khaka, Nensi Patel, and Mahika Gaur and they will be hoping to contain the opposition batters by bowling a tight line and length.

Sune Luus, who led the Tornadoes in their latest fixture, has done a good job with the bat, scoring a total of 126 runs at an average of 63.00. However, she has received little support from the top and middle-order batters. Dane van Niekerk and Sterre Kalis have failed to give the team a good start, while Aliya Riaz, Natasha Miles, and Chanida Sutthiruang have lacked consistency in the middle orders.

The bowling has been quite lackluster too. Winifred Duraisingam, who was the team’s leading wicket-taker in the previous season, has picked up just 2 wickets so far and has been pretty expensive. She is expected to lead the pace attack here along with Diana Baig, who has 4 wickets against her name.

Weather Report

The weather is likely to remain cloudy with temperatures below 23 degrees Celsius. 

Pitch Report

The pitch at the Kowloon Cricket Club is well-balanced, providing equal opportunities to the batters as well as the bowlers. There has been some rain in Hong Kong over the last few days and the moisture in the pitch will make the ball sit up and doesn’t come that well onto the bat. That said, once the batters get their eye in, they will be able to score runs freely. Anything over 150 will be difficult to chase here.

Notable stats

Diana Baig’s Economical Bowling

Ever since her debut for Pakistan, Diana Baig has been a consistent performer for the team in white-ball cricket. She has picked up 27 wickets in her international T20 career and has a miserly economy rate of 5.69 runs per over.
