We are quite some way into the Women's World T20 and remarkably, Pakistan are yet to play a game in the competition. Considering that England lost their match against South Africa, Pakistan have a realistic chance to qualify for the next round and would need to cause only one upset to be there. They are set to begin their World T20 journey on a relatively easier note as they take on West Indies Women in the upcoming contest of the tournament. Even though Windies Women are at the top of the Group B points table, they got their with a win over Thailand Women. They exhibited plenty of vulnerabilities in their match against Thailand and Pakistan Women will be looking to exploit that. This is the first match of the tournament for Pakistan and like always, lots of surprises are in the store. The match is to be played on 26th April at Manuka Oval, Canberra.
West Indies got off to a decent start in this World Cup as they registered a win over Thailand Women. Although their win was always on the cards, getting it would have eased some nerves. West Indies were, however, tested thoroughly by Thailand and it is not going to be an even more difficult road for West Indies in the upcoming encounter.
Against Thailand, West Indies' bowlers did a terrific job as Thai batsmen struggle to handle pace and bounce. Wickets in the early overs and then at regular intervals allowed West Indies to dictate terms throughout the first innings as they strangled Thailand to a paltry total of 78. Stephanie Taylor was the pick of the West Indies bowlers as she cut through the Thailand's batting and got three wickets. She picked up the key wicket of Tippoch, Thailand's captain, whose wicket triggered a collapse from which Thailand could never recover.
While chasing a total of 78 would have been pretty easy on most days, it wasn't as easy for West Windies against Thailand and their batsmen had to work hard. At one moment, West Indies Women were toterring at 27 for 4 and staring at a defeat before they used DRS to overturn an LBW decision. With a partnership between Stephanie Taylor and SA Campbell, West Indies Women eventually cruised home with seven wickets in hand and more than three overs to spare.

Pakistan have always been in the middle of the ICC Rankings in the Women's Cricket and have a huge opportunity to make a leap in this edition of the tournament. England aren't doing well in their group and a couple of good wins might well prove to be enough to push them through to the next round.
Surprisingly, Pakistan come into the tournament without their most experienced player in Sana Mir. Sana Mir has never missed out playing a World Cup for Pakistan since 2009 and this would be the first time Pakistan will be without her. The decision to leave her out of the squad was justified on the basis of her form, which has been poor over the last two overs. She was listless in Pakistan's domestic championship as well wherein she picked up just four wickets at an average of 30.25.
With Sana Mir absent, Bismah Maroof will take charge of this young but talented side. Maroof has plenty of experience of playing at this level and should have no problem whatsoever leading this side. Apart from leaving Sana Mir out, Pakistan have not introduced too many radical changes to their squad. To add experience to their squad, they have recalled Aiman Anwar and Muneeba Ali and it will be interesting to how well they can contribute after not being with the side for more than a year.
Pakistan have always been an unpredictable side and it is not different this time around as well. The likes of Nida Dar, Bismah Maroof, Javeria Khan lend experience to their, but their fate will depend on how their youngsters do. Pakistan have a reasonably good bowling attack, which can come in handy on these slow surfaces with long boundaries. Beating them will not be an easy task for any team in their group.

Check out the Dream11 fantasy team prediction for the Women's T20 World Cup match between Pakistan Women and West Indies Women
These are early days in the tournament and we have already seen plenty of ups and downs. India's win over Australia followed by South Africa's win over England has set up the tournament beautifully. This match between Pakistan Women and West Indies is likely to govern the standings in the Group B and, therefore, the significance of this match is immense. Also, Pakistan haven't played a match in the tournament and will be looking to begin their campaign on a happy note. On paper, West Indies are a better side as compared to West Indies, at least on paper, and have had a better run than them in recent times. Therefore, we think that Pakistan are better placed to emerge on top in this match and betting on their win would be the way to go.
