PK-W vs EN-W Dream11 Team Prediction: England and Pakistan square off in the first of three ODIs, starting this Monday in Kuala Lumpur. After a disastrous Ashes campaign, the English Women are in transition with Sarah Taylor not available for them. The onus will be on the likes of Heather Knight and Tammy Beaumont to guide them against a decent Pakistan side, which comes into this series on the back of a win against Bangladesh. They have some talented individuals in their line up as well and should be able to give a tough fight. Although the weather isn’t too great for this game, both sides will be eyeing a winning start to the series and set the tone for the remaining games in this tour.

The pitch will be on the slower side due to the rainfall over the past week or so. Although the pacers will also get some help from the surface, batters should also enjoy conditions here with good batting tracks being offered in the previous series played here between Australia and Pakistan last year.
Rain is on the cards during the second half of the day which puts the completion of the match in danger. Although it is expected to be clear at the start of the game, persistent rains are inevitable.
No injuries have been reported for this game
Pakistan has a well-balanced side in its ranks with Bismah Maroof and Nahida Khan being crucial in the batting unit. Nida Dar, who played for the Sydney Thunder in this year’s WBBL, provides the balance in the side with her big hitting ability. Aliya Riaz and Nashra Sandhu did well in the previous tour against Bangladesh and will also be key in this series.

England will field their strongest possible XI with their only concern being whether to field an extra spinner or not. While Beaumont and Jones will resume their partnership at the top of the order, the trio of allrounders, Heather Knight, Nat Sciver and Danielle Wyatt adds balance to the side. Katherine Brunt will lead the bowling unit with Sophie Ecclestone’s spell being critical to the outcome of the game.

Top Picks for PK-W vs EN-W Dream11 Team :
Nat Sciver and Amy Ellen Jones starred for the Perth Scorchers in WBBL 2019. While Jones scored 395 runs, Sciver was able to manage 342 runs along with a few wickets as well. Both of them are picked in the side along with Tammy Beaumont and Nida Dar. Bismah Maroof is arguably Pakistan’s best batter and should find a place in the fantasy team as well. Sophie Ecclestone’s spin should also yield a wicket or two along with Katherine Brunt and Kate Cross for this game.
