The PCB Dynamites have produced disappointing performance despite the presence of the players of Pakistan and will be on the look-out for getting wins under their belt, but they lost to the Blasters in the Match 1 of Pakistan Women’s One Day Cup 2021. The advantage for Dynamites will be that, the Blasters will be short on confidence after the bad loss in the last game, and are expected to be under pressure.
In the last game, Dynamites gave away a good amount of runs, 237 runs which is a strong total in Karachi. In the bowling department, Maham Tariq and Ghulam Fatima picked 2 wickets each, with the former being one of the picks due to her fine performances. In the batting department, best pick has to be Muneeba Ali who performed well but could not help the team in chasing down the score.
The top-order batter, who is also the captain of the PCB Dynamites team surely has the leadership qualities, when it comes to her batting performances. Her consistent performances will keep the team in confidence of getting a good start. She is the second highest run-scorer in the tournament just behind her team-mate Aliya Riaz, and will be a vital pick.
The bowler will be a differential pick for this game due to her ability to contain runs and pick wickets with the old ball. She leads the bowling attack, and every bowler should have the capability to pick wickets with the new ball as well as old ball. In the first match, she took wickets in the power-play and can be picked to have a an edge over your competitors.
The Dynamites are not expected to change their Playing 11 for their most crucial fixture in the tournament. The top players like Muneeba Ali and Aliya Riaz who are the regular members of the Pakistan squad have been top performers, and it will be other young players who need to step-up in their performances to help the team in winning the match.

The Blasters after winning their 2 league matches were sky-high in confidence, but they locked horns with the best team in the tournament, PCB Challengers. They got all-out for a score of 59, which is one of the lowest scores in Women’s One Day Cup history. The top run-scorer for the team was the captain Sidra Nawaz. In the bowling department, Nida Dar was the best performer.
The experienced player will be the best pick of this match due to her ability to contribute in both departments and in both departments. In the last league match, she picked up 3 wickets to put pressure on the Challengers team, and has been the best bowler of the tournament. Additionally, she has been able to contribute with the bat as well and certainly hold the key for Blasters.
|Name||Matches||Runs/ Wickets||Bat. avg/ Bowl. avg|
|Nida Dar||3||51/ 7||17/ 7.71|
The leading run-scorer for the team in the Pakistan Women’s One Day Cup 2021 has been excellent with her ball striking capabilities and tremendous composure to bat long hours to contribute to the team. Although she failed in the last match, but is expected to comeback harder due to her track record and give you good amount of fantasy points.
The Blasters have 2 wins in 3 matches under their belt and have been playing well. But, the debacle in the last match would keep them shocked and management along with the captain would keep their thinking cap on for this fixture. But is was the failure of whole batting department and they are not expected to change their Playing 11.
BLA-W Playing 11 (likely)
1. Gul Feroza
2. Nahida Khan
3. Omaima Sohail
4. Sidra Nawaz (c & wk)
