India Women Emerging takes on Pakistan Women Emerging in the fifth match of the ACC Women’s Emerging Cup. Unfortunately, due to terrible weather conditions, all the previous four fixtures were abandoned. The weather report for this game too isn’t very encouraging. However, in the unlikely circumstances that we do get a game, the winner of this contest will play either Sri Lanka Women Emerging or Bangladesh Women Emerging in the final scheduled to take place on Sunday.

India Women Emerging vs Pakistan Women Emerging

9:30 AM IST
Thurstan Grounds, Colombo
Rain showers are predicted throughout the day, which means a potential washout is on the cards.
If rain permits, considering the incessant rain showers the ground has faced over the week, the surface will be slow and sluggish offering ample amount of assistance to the slower bowlers.
No notable injury concerns reported.
Probable Playing XI:
India Women Emerging:
Nuzhat Parveen is a dependable presence in the batting unit and the onus will lie on her to anchor the inning on a track that will pose plenty of problems to the batters. Besides, Captain Devika Vaidya is the stand-out figure in the side and will be relied upon to make a difference with both bat and bowl.
Nuzhat Parveen, S Meghana, Devika Vaidya (C), Tanushree Sarkar, Tejal Hasabnis, Yastika Bhatia, Sushree Dibyadarshini, TP Kanwar, Minnu Mani, Manali Dakshini, Simarn Dil Bahadur
Pakistan Women Emerging:
Muneeba Ali and Javeria Rauf will take up the mantle of providing a solid foundation at the top whilst the likes of Hafsa Khalid, Fatima Sana Khan, and Ayesha Naseem can facilitate the smooth flow of runs in the middle stages of the inning. Nashra Sandhu is an experienced member of the side and thus will lead the bowling attack.
Muneeba Ali, Javeria Rauf, Hafsa Khalid, Fatima Sana Khan, Ayesha Naseem, Najiha Alvi (WK), Nashra Sandhu, Kainat Hafeez, Maham Tariq, Rameen Shamim (C), Syeda Aroob Shah
Devika Vaidya is a mandatory pick considering her undeniable quality in all three departments of the game and her ability to consistently produce the goods for her side. Similarly, Hafsa Khalid is a menace with both bat and bowl as her commendable record of 22 wickets across 27 matches and two fifties from 24 innings so clearly suggests. Also, young leggie Syeda Aroob Shah has bagged 20 wickets from 10 games and is set to play a pivotal role for her side on a surface that should ideally suit her strengths. Tanushree Sarkar, Sushree Dibyadarshini, and Nashra Sandhu are the other advisable picks for your Dream11 Team.
