England vs Pakistan Women’s T20 World Cup 2020

The showdown between England and Pakistan will be the 12th match of the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup, as well as the 6th match of Group B. It will be the 3rd match for England and 2nd match for Pakistan in the tournament.

The match will be held on 28th Feb (1.30 pm IST onwards) at the Manuka Oval in Canberra, Australia. The match umpires will be Chris Brown (NZ) and Nitin Menon (Ind).

Players to watch out for and why

For the English side, the all-rounder Natalie Sciver would be their biggest weapon. With 50 runs against South Africa and 59* runs against Thailand, she has emerged as a very reliable run-maker for the England team. She can also support the bowling attack, as her 2 wickets against Thailand proved. Heather Knight could be a surprise packet from the England team. After a dismal inning in the first match, she went on to score a spectacular 108* against Thailand. It is natural to expect she would continue the same form.

The English bowling attack is helmed by Anya Shrubsole, who has plucked 4 wickets in the last two matches (though proving to be costly). She is supported by Sophie Ecclestone, who has taken 3 wickets so far.

The Pakistani side cannot boast of many run-scorers, as much of the burden falls on the promising Javeria Khan (who scored 35 runs in the first match, as well as 41 runs in the warmup match against Bangladesh). She can find limited support from skipper Bismah Maroof. On the bowling front, Aiman Anwar has been a consistent wicket-taker, though she has been expensive as well. Anam Amin has been more consistent, though not lethal enough so far.

Who will win and why

When it comes to face-offs, Pakistan is at an overwhelming disadvantage. Out of the 13 matches the two teams have played against each other, Pakistan has only managed a victory in one. In the Malaysia tour in December last year, Pakistan was soundly defeated 3-0 by the English. England has been one of the top dogs in the ICC T20 world cup, becoming champions once and finalists in 3 other world cups. Pakistan, on the other hand, has never made it beyond the group stage.

While Pakistan has a decent batting and bowling line-up, it lacks any game-changers who can seriously challenge the strong England team. England, however, has stellar players that can both helm their batting line-up and sharpen their bowling attack. In this face-off, England is more than likely to win and you can still get great cricket betting odds.
