USA Women will lock horns with Argentina Women in the fifth match of the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup Americas Region Qualifiers. The Reforma Athletic Club in Naucalpan, Mexico, will host this clash.
USA women are sitting comfortably at the top of the table with two wins in as many matches. They have won both their games comprehensively and will be riding with confidence going into this match.
They defeated Canadian women in their last match. The bowlers were brilliant as they restricted Canada to 70 in their 20 overs and picked up nine wickets. It was a cakewalk for them as they chased down the total in the 11th over without losing a single wicket. They will be eager to carry the winning momentum forward.
Argentina women, on the other hand, are languishing at the bottom of the table. They are yet to win a game, losing both their matches, and will be looking to bounce back in the competition.
In their last game against the Brazil women, it was a very poor performance from them as they were bundled out for 12 after being asked to bat first. None of the batters went past two with four batters departing on a duck. The Brazilian women chased down the total in the fourth over. They need to be at their absolute best against the table-toppers on Thursday.
