PK-W vs IR-W, Match 10: Top Five Picks

  1. Bismah Maroof (PK-W): Pakistani skipper Bismah Maroof top-scored for her side in a losing cause against India with her knock of 68 not out of 55. The left-handed veteran is the leading run-scoter for her country in this format, and she is an ideal pick against the Irish.
  2. Javeria Khan (PK-W): Right-handed opener Javeria Khan is the second-highest run-getter for Pakistan in T20 internationals behind her captain. Javeria missed out against India as she scored only 8, but this fixture allows her to play a big knock opening the innings.
  3. Nida Dar (PK-W): Experienced campaigner Nida Dar had an off day against rivals India. The all-rounder got out for a duck and conceded 0/36 in her 4-over spell. After a poor outing, Dar should be a good pick for this contest.
  4. Laura Delany (IR-W): Ireland captain Laura Delany is the third-highest run-scorer for her country in this format. Approaching 1000 runs (957), Delany would be looking to lead her side from the front by contributing big, as she scored only 12 against England. With 55 wickets, she has picked up the most wickets for Ireland in T20Is.
  5. Eimear Richardson (IR-W): All-rounder Eimear Richardson also had a bad day at the office against the English side. She got dismissed for a golden duck before leaking 30 runs for no wickets in 2 overs. The second highest-wicket taker for Ireland is due for a good performance.
