After back-to-back doubleheaders at the weekends, it's time to return to normal ways. Australia Women are all set to rub shoulders with Bangladesh Women at St. George's Park, Port Elizabeth, on Tuesday.

The world-beaters - Australia, have initiated their campaign in their dominating fashion. They steamrolled their Trans Tasman rival, New Zealand, in their first game of the season by a whopping 97 runs. Ashleigh Gardner returned with a game-turning fifer and set the tone for a victory in the second innings. Currently, they are positioned just below Sri Lanka, at the second position.

On the other side of the spectrum, Bangladesh Women failed to get started in their desired fashion after a loss against Chamari Athapaththu's unit. Despite scoring just 126 runs with the bat, the Tigressess fought valiantly to earn some respect. But, to their disgrace, Sri Lanka chased it down with seven wickets and ten balls to spare.

On paper, this is a one-sided clash. But to ensure you avoid any one-sided fantasy encounter, we're here to guide you through.

Ground Stats: St George's Oval

The surface at the St George's Oval is known for some recent low-scoring encounters. Five out of the last six innings played here has recorded less than 140 runs. The conditions tends to favour the spinners and the medium pacers who attack the right line and length. Batting is a bit of a challenge at this venue.

AUS-W vs BAN-W, Match 8: Top Picks

  1. Ashleigh Gardner (AUS-W): The all-rounder celebrated a fifer in the last game against the White Ferns. She can also be handy with the bat in hand; also known to clear the ropes.
  2. Megan Schutt (AUS-W): The pace-woman can be a threat against Bangladesh Women. The experienced pacer extracts good swing at the early phases.
  3. Nigar Sultana (BAN-W): The skipper failed to convert a brisk start in the last game and will look to lead her side from the front in this game.
  4. Alyssa Healy (AUS-W): The swashbuckling opener would look to offer another rollicking start to the Aussies. She likes the fast bowlers and can tore them apart in no time.
  5. Ellyse Perry (AUS-W): The Australian all-rounder will be a key with respect to fantasy teams. She scored quick runs at the middle order in the last game. Also, if Perry gets to bowl, she hardly returns fruitless.
