The 6th game of the ICC Women's World Cup 2022 would see Australia Women up against Pakistan Women. The two sides come into this contest with contrasting forms. Australia Women started the tournament well and registered a confident win against England. Pakistan Women on the other hand went down by a big margin against India.
Pakistan Women have never defeated Australia Women in this format of the game. Their players seem to be lacking confidence on the big stage which was visible in the last game. Most of them have struggled in these conditions in the past. Australia Women would be confident and it remains to be seen if Pakistan can cause a major upset here.
Meg Lanning’s side has made a confident start to the tournament. They defeated England Women by 12 runs in their first game. The side batted well to set up a big total and defended it successfully towards the end. They have never lost a game against Pakistan Women and Lanning would want to keep this record intact here.
Rachael Haynes hit a hundred in the last game and she would look forward to setting up a good opening wicket stand with Alyssa Healy. Lanning played well in the last game and adds solidity to the middle order with Beth Mooney and Ellyse Perry. Tahlia McGrath and Annabel Sutherland complete a strong batting line-up for the side heading into this game.
Megan Schutt and Darcie Brown would look to bowl better lines than they had done in the last game. Jess Jonassen and Sutherland also have to come up with better spells as the England batters had taken them on in the last game. Alana King, McGrath, and Perry add variety to this attack making it strong.

Bismah Maroof’s side suffered a big blow in their opening game against archrivals India. They batted poorly to lose the game by 107 runs. The side has always struggled in these conditions and they would need a massive turnaround in their form and approach to challenge the Australians.
Sidra Ameen and Javeria Khan have to score quick runs at the top as their approach against the Indians was negative. Maroof has lots of experience and she would have to anchor the middle-order setting up partnerships with Omaima Sohail and Nida Dar. Sidra Nawa, Aliya Riaz, and Fatima Sana would need to come up with good efforts down the order for the side to win.
Daina Baig and Anam Amin must get the side early breakthroughs to put Australians under pressure. Nida Dar was impressive with her performance and the side would have big expectations from her in this game. Nashra Sandhu, Fatima Sana, and Sohail must support the main bowlers considering Australia’s strengths with the bat.

The conditions at Mount Maunganui on March 8 would clear and the batting conditions are expected to be good. The ball would come onto the bat nicely allowing batters to play their strokes easily. The side batting first in the game would aim to put up 275 runs on the board in this game.
Bay Oval, Mount Maunganui offers a lot for the fast bowlers at the start of the game. There is bounce and carry for them in the early overs. However, even bounce on the surface allows batters to score their runs. Spinners don’t find assistance from the surface and they have to rely on their skills.
In two games played so far at this venue, batting conditions have been good. We have seen big scores being put up here. The side winning the toss here would like to take advantage of the surface by opting to bat first in this game.
Pakistan Women are down on confidence. It was on full display in their last game against India Women where they came up with a strange approach chasing the big score. They would have to punch above their weight to win this contest. Australia Women are in good form and they have big hitters of the ball in the side which would make them favorites here.
