Predicted XI

Pakistan Women:

Pakistan will field its strongest side with the likes of Nahida Khan and Bismah Maroof batting in the middle order. Even without the services of Nida Dar, the Pakistani side looks formidable with their bowling unit being key to their fortunes. All eyes will be upon Aliya Riaz, who has carved up a reputation for her lower-order hitting and ability to pick wickets as well. Javeria Khan, who enjoyed a successful tour of South Africa with the bat, is also one to watch out for in this game.
Ayesha Zafar, Omaima Sohail, Javeria Khan, Bismah Maroof, Nahida Khan, Aliya Riaz, Anam Amin, Sidra Nawaz, Sana Mir, Kainat Imtiaz and Diana Baig.

Bangladesh Women:

Bangladesh also has a well balanced side in its midst with the likes of Rumana Ahmed, Jahanara Alam and Sanjida Islam doing well for the national team this year. Salma Khatun, who picked six wickets in the previous T20 World Cup, will be their go-to bowler once again while the likes of Ayasha Rahman and Nigar Sultana are also expected to come up with good performances against the home side in Lahore
