About the Match

The Pakistani and Irish women are getting ready to face each other in what could be a very interesting encounter. Ireland has the least amount of experience in this WorldT20 and does not have a realistic shot of progressing past the group stages.

One of the goals that Ireland would have set itself would be to win one single match in this WorldT20 campaign. They have been placed in a tough group with Australia, New Zealand, India, and Pakistan. The only side that Ireland can realistically have a prayer of beating would be Pakistan.

Pakistan started its campaign with a loss against Australia and then followed it up with another one against India. Its performance was much better in the second match, though, and the reports from the camp suggest that the team is pretty pleased with the show it put up.

Pakistan has shown enough inconsistency in its level of game for Ireland to be on the lookout for an opportunity here. Whether they are good enough to translate that into a win is another matter.

Match Preview

Pakistan Women

After being beaten soundly by Australia in the last match, Pakistan would have been pleased with the fight it gave India. The Pakistani’s recovered from a poor start to their inning and then went on to post a total which gave their bowlers some semblance of hope.

A total of 133 was a little below par but it seemed like that too would be difficult for the Pakistani’s to post at one stage of the match.

Pakistan then bowled well and made India work hard to get these runs. The loss eventually came in 19 overs, something that Pakistan can be proud of. If Pakistan displays the same level of intensity and desire against the Irish women then we have no doubt they are going to come out on top.

There are a lot of weaknesses in this side, though.

Ayesha Zafar, Javeria Khan, and Umaima Sohail have not provided the kind of starts that would have been expected of them. Bismah Maroof and Nida Dar scored crucial fifties in the last match but there is nothing to follow these two.

Another wicket and Pakistan could have been rolled over very cheaply.

Ireland will know that it needs to take a few wickets in the top-order to possibly expose the soft underbelly of Pakistan’s batting.

Pakistan will be proud of its bowling, though. Nida Dar bowled four over for 17 runs and took one wicket to cap off an excellent all-round performance. Apart from Aliya Riaz who was a little expensive, all the other Pakistani women had a good day in the field.

Unlike the Australians and the Indians whom they have played so far, the Irish women do not have the same depth in batting and could struggle to find scoring areas against the Pakistani’s.

Pakistan Women Starting Lineup

Ayesha Zafar, Javeria Khan, Omaima Sohail, Bismah Maroof, Nida Dar, Aliya Riaz, Nahida Khan, Sana Mir, Sidra Nawaz, Aiman Anwer, Nashra Sandhu.

Ireland Women

Ireland was blown away by Australia in the first match as the gulf between sides in women’s cricket was exposed. Ireland chose to bat after winning the toss but showed no intent against a disciplined Australian bowling unit.

After playing out the powerplay in a defensive manner to hopefully set up a base for some acceleration later, the Irish women continued to lose wickets and eventually stagnated completely. To play out 20 overs with the loss of just six wickets and reach a score of only 93 is just unacceptable at this level of cricket.

It also shows the lack of depth that the side has. Losing early wickets could mean a complete capitulation so they were keen to avoid any attacking strokes. This strategy is not going to work against Pakistan.

Ireland must play with the aim of scoring runs because just survival is not going to get them anywhere in this game. We would rather see Ireland go for it and get all out for a small score than go nowhere at the end of their allotted overs.

For Ireland to have any chance of winning its top order must score runs. Shillington and Lewis appear to be the two most accomplished batters in this side but that is not a very big achievement, to be honest.

The Irish bowling came up against a rampaging Alyssa Healy and was carted to all corners of the park. Thankfully for them, Pakistan does not have any batter capable of playing with similar power. The Pakistani batting is more about finding the gaps and manipulating the ball for singles rather than brute force.

If the Irish bowlers can find some discipline, pick some early wickets, and field like demons then they could put a weak Pakistani batting order under tremendous pressure.

Ireland’s cricket made its first big splash when the men’s team defeated Pakistan in the 20 World Cup. If the women’s team can repeat the same in this World T20 then we don’t think it will be regarded as any smaller an achievement.

Ireland Women Starting Lineup

Clare Shillington, Gaby Lewis, Isobel Joyce, Laura Delany, Kim Garth, Eimear Richardson, Shauna Kavanagh, Mary Waldron, Lucy OReilly, Celeste Raack, Ciara Metcalfe.

Toss Prediction

The team winning the toss is likely to field first

Pitch and Conditions

Providence has been very lucky with the weather and been spared the torrential rain that has hot St. Lucia so far. The forecast is once again pretty positive and even though we may have some showers around, we are confident of a full game being played out.

The pitch has been very consistent so far. It has been slow, without much in it for any kind of bowler. Batters have scored plenty of runs on this surface after getting set and it should be no different this time around.

Two weak batting lineups suggest that a score of around 140 could be considered very challenging for the other side.

Our Prediction

Pakistan is the better side in this contest but we don’t trust it enough to say this match is a no-brainer. Stranger things have happened than Ireland beating Pakistan and we think we could have our first upset of the tournament.

It is a long shot but if an upset were to happen, we are betting it’s this one.

Back Ireland to win and try to hedge your bet with in-play betting.
