Pitch Report: A balanced surface helping both the batters and the bowlers.
UAE start as firm favourites for this one, carrying a greater depth of talent and momentum behind them from their last two matches.
1. Chaya Mughal (9.5 credits) – Mughal has played 17 T20Is for UAE with a decent bowling record, taking 9 wickets to her name with an economy rate of only 3.88.
2. Esha Rohit (9.5 credits) – she has played 18 T20Is for UAE with 412 runs to her name at an average of 24.23.
3. Dechen Wangmo (9.5 credits) – Bhutan legspinner Wangmo has taken 10 wickets from her 6 T20Is for her country. She has bagged her tally of scalps while conceding just 5.03 runs per over.
1. Chamani Seneviratna (8.5 credits) – an experienced UAE right-arm pacer, Seneviratna has taken 46 wickets in her T20I career while conceding only 4.80 runs per over. Her economy rate for the tournament so far is 5.71.
2. Amrit Gurung (8.5 credits) – Gurung, the Bhutan seamer, has been extremely miserly for her side. In Bhutan’s last two matches, she has maintained an economy rate of only 4.33.
3. Sonali Paldon (8.5 credits) – the Bhutan wicketkeeper-batter Paldon is still very early into her T20I career, with only 52 runs from her 6 games. But the 23-year-old is expected to soon come up with the goods as she gains in experience.
