T20 World Champions would be confident as they play Pakistan Women in the 9th game of Commonwealth Games Women's Cricket Competition 2022. Australians have won both the games and the side has booked a berth in the semifinals. It has been a contrasting show for the Pakistanis as they have lost both games and suffered a crushing defeat against archrivals India in the last game.
Pakistan Women have never defeated Australia Women in this format of the game. This would affect their confidence. Their batters have looked in poor form in the two games the side has played. Australians like to play aggressive cricket and they would like to continue with the same form. A win for Pakistan would be one of the biggest upsets in recent years.
Meg Lanning would be pleased with the 9-wicket win against Barbados Women in the last game. It was a clinical show from the team after the not-so-confident show against the Indians. They have never lost a game against the Pakistanis in the past and Lanning would like to maintain that unblemished record. She would press for a win and make a confident entry into the semifinal.
Beth Mooney has struggled in both games, and she will look to score runs here opening the batting with Alyssa Healy. Lanning comes here with runs behind her back during the last 12 months and she would like to add runs with Tahlia McGrath and Rachael Haynes in this game. Ashleigh Gardner is one of the best finishers in the world and adds to the side’s batting strength with Grace Harris down the order.
Darcie Brown and Megan Schutt would be confident after the good show in the last game where they made the new ball talk. Alana King and McGrath bowled sensational spells and they would look to carry this momentum forward. Gardner and Jess Jonassen add depth to this attack, and they would trouble the Pakistani batters who have been in poor form in the tournament.

Bismah Maroof’s side suffered an embarrassing defeat against India Women in the last game. They struggled with the bat and bowled extremely poor lines to suffer an 8-wicket loss in the game. The side is nearly out of contention for a place in the semi-finals. As they play their last game of the tournament Maroof would like to take the battle into the Australian camp.
Muneeba Ali did well in the last game, but the side would be worried about the form of Iram Javed. The pair would have to take on the Australian bowling attack. Maroof, Omaima Sohail, and Ayesha Naseem haven’t contributed much in the middle order, and they will have to set up partnerships. Aliya Riaz, Kainat Imtiaz, and Fatima Sana must make runs down the order as the top order has looked in poor form.
Their bowlers were taken to the cleaners by the Indians and need to put that poor show behind them. Diana Baig and Anam Amin will have to bowl better lines as they open the bowling for the side. Fatima Sana and Tuba Hassan shall have to contain the aggressive Australian batters in the middle overs. Sohail has looked good, and he will need to do well in the role of a 5th bowler.

The skies over Birmingham be overcast on August 3 and we expect the conditions to favor the bowlers. The batting surface would be flat and batters who get their eyes set in will be able to score runs at this venue. The side that bats first would need more than 150 on the board to feel confident.
Edgbaston, Birmingham is a good batting surface where batters can play on the up. Fast bowlers generate pace and movement on this surface when the conditions are overcast. Spinners have had a tough time on this track in the past as the ball doesn’t turn much on this surface.
The wicket has slowed down a bit since the start of the tournament. The ball isn’t coming to the bat nicely and this makes setting up scores here challenging. Both captains would have this on their minds. The side winning the toss wouldn’t have hesitation in opting to bowl first in the game.
Pakistan Women have their backs against the wall. This is likely to be their last game of the tournament and they would like to bow out on a high. Their batters would have to take on the challenge and put runs on the board. Australians have been clinical, and they have their bowling attack in excellent form. They have powerful hitters of the ball who would make Pakistani bowlers struggle. Our money would be on the Australians to win this game.
