  • Head to head in T20Is, Bangladesh Women lead 1-0.
  • Bangladesh Women – 9th on the ICC Women’s T20 Rankings.
  • PNG Women – 15th on the ICC Women’s T20 Rankings.
  • Nahida Akter – 7 wickets in 3 games in recent series in Utrecht.

Bangladesh Women

Bangladesh Women will be led by 28-year old bowler Salma Khatun, who picked up 4 wickets in 3 games at a recent series at Utrecht. She also picked 1/14 in a recent warm-up game here in Scotland. However, the bowler to watch out for is the 19-year old Nahida Akter who picked up 7 wickets in that same series and has a decent T20I career as well, with 37 wickets in 31 T20Is. Don’t miss her from your fantasy team.

Wicket-keeper batter Nigar Sultana has been good in recent times with the bat, scoring 76 runs and being dismissed just once in that series in Utrecht. Similarly, she had a couple of unbeaten forties in a recent series against South Africa Emerging Women, so she has been in great form. Sanjida Islam also had a big score of 73* in one of those games. With the ball, put your faith in Jahanara Alam who is their most experience player with 41 T20I wickets.

PNG Women

PNG Women are led by Kaia Arua and this all-rounder should definitely be picked in your team with 165 runs and 21 wickets in her T20I career of 17 matches including one 5-fer. Naoani Vare will open the innings for them and she has 2 consecutive ducks coming into this game, so we should skip her and instead, pick opening partner Sibona Jimmy who has more consistent scores and don’t forget, she bowls too.

Another must have in your Nostragamus (sign-up with “READSCOOPS” for Rs.100 FREE) fantasy picks is Ravina Oa, who has 22 wickets in her career so far including a few runs with the bat. Pick some more players who can bat and bowl both and one of them is Veru Frank, who scored runs recently against tougher opponents like Ireland W and Scotland Women last month.
