The sixth match of the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2020 will take place between India and Bangladesh. While India got a brilliant start of the tournament with a 17-run victory over Australia in Sydney, Bangladesh will play their first game of the tournament. Here is India vs Bangladesh Dream 11 Prediction.
The sixth match between India and Bangladesh will take place at the W.A.C.A. Ground in Perth. It will start at 07:00 PM local time (11:00 AM GMT) (4:30 PM IST). Anyone can watch it LIVE on Star Sports and Hotstar.
After beating Australia in the tournament opener, India will try to carry their winning momentum on. Shafali Verma, Jemimah Rodrigues and Deepti Sharma were their top scorers and took them to 132 against Australia. However, their middle-order woes still continue which most of the times create trouble for them.
Until the 9th over, Australia were pretty much in the game with Alyssa Healy scored a quickfire fifty. But leg spinner Poonam Yadav brought India back in the game. Her four-wicket haul dismantled the Australian middle order. Apart from her, Shikha Pandey also picked up three wickets.
With the presence of these key players, India would love to earn two more points and become one of the strong contenders for the semi-final.
Probable Playing XI
Harmanpreet Kaur (C), Smriti Mandhana, Shikha Pandey, Poonam Yadav, Rajeshwari Gayakwad, Veda Krishnamurthy, Deepti Sharma, Jemimah Rodrigues, Taniya Bhatia (WK), Arundhati Reddy, Shafali Verma
For Bangladesh, the onus will be on experienced players like Salma Khatun, Rumana Ahmed, Jahanara Alam and Panna Ghosh, apart from Nigar Sultana Joty and Nahida Akter. Wicketkeeper-batter Joty is Bangladesh’s second-highest T20I scorer with 744 runs. She scored her maiden international century against the Maldives, in their first international tournament and a half-century against Pakistan last November as well.
With the ball, left-arm spinner Nahida Akter will be the key for them. She impressed at the T20 World Cup qualifiers last year with 10 wickets and helped Bangladesh earn a Women’s T20 World Cup qualification. At just 19, she has an international experience of more than four years with 49 wickets at 12.1.
Probable Playing XI
Murshida Khatun, Ayasha Rahman, Shamima Sultana, Nigar Sultana (WK), Fargana Hoque, Khadija Tul Kubra, Fahima Khatun, Salma Khatun (C), Nahida Akter, Jahanara Alam, Panna Ghosh
Pitch Report and Weather Condition
The pitch at the W.A.C.A will help the bowlers. But runs are also expected if the batters are ready to take risks. The first two games were won by the team while batting second. Hence, chasing is the option after winning the toss.
The conditions are soggy as there are chances of heavy rain. The temperature will be around the 25 degree Celsius with the humidity in the 70s. A fair amount of dew will also be there during the game.
