Pitch Report: The match between PCB Dyamites and PCB Strikers is scheduled to be played in Oval Academy Ground, Karachi. On this venue, the same teams competed a few days back. The bowlers had a good time and dismissed the opposition to a score of around 180, but it is expected that the batters will play without the pressure and score runs in an efficient manner.
Brief score of the last result at the venue: PCB Strikers 183/3 won by 7 wickets against PCB Dynamites 182/10 in Pakistan Women’s One Day Cup 2021.
The chosen combination is 7 players from Strikers and 4 players from Dynamites, which is due to the performance and track record of certain players in the domestic cricket. In the batting unit, all the players have contributed well, with Muneeba being the top run-scorer. While, all the all-rounders also have done their bit in last few matches. Then, the best pick from the bowling department would be Maham Tariq.

BATSMEN: Muneeba Ali, Javeria Rauf, Ayesha Zafar, Hafsa Khalid
ALL-ROUNDERS: Aliya Riaz, Tooba Hassan, Kainat Imtiaz
BOWLERS: Maham Tariq, Natalia Pervaiz, Ghulam Fatima
The PCB Strikers won the last league fixture against the same opponent easily due to the terrific bowling attack comprising of Kainat, Hafsa, and Tooba. Their batters also complimented well and are expected to fare better in thsi fixture and get the 3rd place in the tournament. While, it will be really tough for the Dynamites team to pull through a win with low confidence and weak bowling attack.
The Dynamites have not won any of the 6 league matches and will look for a consolidation win to get the 3rd position in the tournament. In the last league match, the batters displayed disappointing performances and were dismissed on a very low score, and then the bowlers also could not induce enough wickets. Nevertheless, the top picks for the team would be Muneeba Ali and Ghulam Fatima.
Muneeba will look to keep her consistent performances intact in the last match of the tournament. She is the leading run-scorer in the tournament with 358 runs in 6 matches, and has solid at the top-order. In the last league against same opponent, she scored 85 and tried to stitch crucial partnerships, but the other batters could not contribute enough and team failed to post a good score.
The talented youngster is one of the most important bowler for the Dyanmites team and will be vital if the team needs to fetch the 3rd position by winning this fixture. In this season, he picked 1 wicket and effected a run-out and can play a pivotal role to boost the team’s performance by her all-round skills. Additionally, she was impressive in the last season as well.
