With wins over England Women and Thailand Women in their first two matches of the Women's T20 World Cup 2020, South Africa Women will be keen to make it three out of three and seal their place in the semifinals. Their rivals, Pakistan Women, had got their campaign off to a good start but lost their previous fixture against England Women.
As a lot of players from South Africa have taken part in the WBBL, they have good knowledge of the conditions in Australia. Also, their opening batsman Lizelle Lee is in terrific form as she smashed a hundred in the last match. Sune Luus' half-century ensured that the Proteas bulldoze Thailand despite the failure of their skipper Dane van Niekerk. Luus also scalped three wickets with the ball in that match, while Shabnim Ismail backed her up to perfection.
Speaking of Pakistan Women now, Heather Knight's half-century in their previous match undid all the good work done by Aiman Anwar and Diana Baig. Their batting department failed miserably, with Aliya Riaz being the lone saving grace. Pakistan Women will look forward to improving their performance against South Africa Women.
