Tournament: Women’s Asia Cup, 2022.
Date: October 13, 2022
Venue: Sylhet International Cricket Stadium, Sylhet, Bangladesh.
In the 2nd semi-final of Asia Cup 2022 for women, Sri Lanka women will take on Pakistan women. In this T20I tournament, Pakistani women are going into the game with a convincing victory against Sri Lanka. As a result. they will be confident of taking on the same opposition in this all-important decider. This game will be a massive challenge for the Sri Lanka team after the poor show they put up in their last match. Sri Lanka women do not enjoy a good record against Pakistan women and after that poor show in the last match, the Sri Lankan morale will be pretty low. Sri Lankan women have managed to win just a couple of games in the last ten years against Pakistan women. This will certainly be at the back of their minds in the match. Pakistan women on the other hand have done well in the competition and have registered huge victories. This will be a high-stakes battle and you can just imagine the pressure on both teams.
The Pakistan women's cricket team skipper Bismah Maroof will be confident about the prospects of her team in this match. In the last game, these two countries played, the Sri Lankan women's team was clinically outclassed by Pakistan women and so the momentum is with Pakistan women. The Pakistani women's bowling attack especially has been in great touch throughout the competition. Maroof will be keen to exploit these positive developments for her side and convert them into a win in this knockout match of the Asia Cup 2022.
As far as the Pakistan opening stand is concerned, they will be keeping their faith in Muneeba Ali and Sidra Ameen to deliver the goods again in this crucial game. These two can take the game away from the opposition right at the top and place a team in a comfortable position. In the middle order, the skipper Maroof adds solidity to the Pakistan batting lineup. She will be looking to add some quick runs in the middle order together with Nida Dar and Omaima Sohail. Ayesha Naseem and Aliya Riaz will be providing additional depth to the batting order.
But it was the Pakistan women's bowling attack that troubled the Sri Lankan women the most in the last game. The new ball bowlers for Pakistan, Aiman Anwar, and Sadia Iqbal will be looking for a similar performance in this game as they did in the earlier one. The bowler that will be confident in this match will be Omaima Sohail due to her 5-wicket haul in the last game. Pakistan women's team will be expecting another great performance from her. There are other bowlers in the team as well that make up for a solid bowling line-up such as Nida Dar and Tuba Hassan.
Muneeba Ali, Sidra Ameen, Bismah Maroof, Omaima Sohail, Nida Dar, Aliya Riaz, Ayesha Naseem, Nashra Sandhu, Tuba Hassan, Sadia Iqbal, Aiman Anwer.
On the other hand, the Sri Lankan skipper Chamari Atapattu will be looking to push aside the defeat in the last match against their Asian rivals. We have observed similar things to have happened in the past where the batting line-up of great teams collapsed in crucial games. Atapattu is the sort of player that likes leading the team from the front. She will have to goad the side into playing out of their skins to try and beat this opposition that is currently on a roll. If they can win this game, it means an entry into the finals of Asia Cup 2022 which will be for the first time after 2008.
The batter that has been in good nick for Sri Lanka women is Harshitha Madavi. She will have to set up a huge opening wicket stand with the Sri Lankan captain Chamari Atapattu right up front. The rest of the Sri Lankan batting order has performed inconsistently in the tournament. They will need their main batters such as Nilakshi de Silva, Anushka Sanjeewani, and Kavisha Dilhari to come good in the match. As far as the lower middle order is concerned, they will look for Oshadi Ranasinghe and Malsha Shahani to contribute some crucial runs for them.
As far as the Sri Lankan women's bowling attack is concerned, Oshadi Ranasinghe and Sugandika Kumari will have to give their team early breakthroughs to get into a comfortable position in the match. Achini Kulasuriya has succeeded in troubling Pakistani women. This same thing can be expected from her again in this match. Kavisha Dilhari, Atapattu, and Inoka Ranaweera have to bowl tightly and also try to pick the odd wicket or two because the Pakistani women's cricket team has a lot of depth in their batting order.
Chamari Atapattu, Harshitha Madavi, Hasini Perera, Nilakshi de Silva, Kavisha Dilhari, Anushka Sanjeewani, Malsha Shehani, Oshadi Ranasinghe, Sugandika Kumari, Inoka Ranaweera, Achini Kulasuriya.
Defending a score has always proved to be a challenge for a side at this venue.

It is expected from the weather department that we will get overcast skies on the 13th of October. This will make it difficult to bat at the venue with the bowlers getting the ball to move around. Although the Sylhet outfield is lightning fast, you are going to get a two-paced pitch here making it tough to bat on. During the earlier periods, we have observed low-scoring games here and a score in the region of 150 runs should be an adequate total to defend at the venue. The Sylhet International Cricket Ground is not your usual high-scoring T20 cricket venue. It is one of the rare grounds in the sub-continent that assists the bowlers. The cool conditions on offer at the venue make it a tough wicket to score runs on. This is a problem typically in the first innings. Faster bowlers from both sides will enjoy bowling on these grounds.
The Sri Lankan women's cricket team has been pretty inconsistent in the last few months. The Lankan batters will get severely tested in this game against a quality bowling attack. The Pakistani spinners especially are going to be ready for this challenge. Pakistan women on the other hand have experience in either department of the game. They have players that are in a better frame of mind. This will make them hot favorites to win this match. We will bet with Pakistan to win this match.
This is the semi-final of a big tournament. The opening batters will likely have a go at the bowlers right from the start and score more than 5 runs in the first over of the innings.
It is a likely prospect because Muneeba Ali has been doing well in the competition. She might come good again in this game and score in the excess of 15 runs.
Chamari Atapattu is the sort of player that comes good in big games. She can be expected to try and lead from the front in this match with big innings up front. You can bet on her to score more than 18 runs in the match.
