The Knockout rounds are in full flow in the FIBA Women’s Asia Cup and the battles here will be now inch closer to the trophy. In this game, Japan is going to fight it out against Australian women. More about JPN-W vs AUS-W Dream11 is going to be imparted here.
Japan is missing its assist machine Rui Machida but Saori Miyazaki has picked up the slack well. Japan has not been clinical but the team can still present an array of difficulties for the Opals. There are multiple options on offense with Saki, Okoye, Mawuli, Akaho for Japan. The team can shoot from beyond the arc and the ball movement is usually exceptional.
Conversely, Aussies have largely vested its offense upon Samantha Whitcomb. The team is not fielding its first-string squad but players like Scherf and Garbin have shown a lot of substance. The team has been led by Whitcomb who gives them a lift in many areas. How will the Opals counter the fast-paced and dynamic Japan? Japan comes with a slight edge but the Australians can shake them.
