They are the second team to qualify after Australia and will look to finish in second place in the points table with a win in this match.

Pakistan team is in the sixth position currently with 15 points and they still have a chance to make direct qualification to the WC2021. They will look to win this match and leapfrog South Africa to the fourth position in the points table. Pakistan team was outclassed by England in all departments in the first game.
Pakistan openers were dismissed for single-digit scores and they were struggling at 39/3 in the 10-over mark. Skipper Bismah Mahroof waged a lone battle with the bat scoring 69 runs. Aliyia Riaz (39), Omaina Sohail (29), & Nida Dar (18) shared little partnerships with a skipper but were not good to finish the chase.
Their bowling unit was not able to break the opening partnership before they added 188 runs. Rameen Shamin took 3 wickets while Nasra Sandha and Bismah Maroof chipped in with a wicket each. Their bowlers gave away runs at 6 RPO easily and failed to trouble the England team at any point.
Bismah Mahroof – Skipper Bismah Mahroof had a fairly good match with 69 runs and a wicket with the ball. But she needs to marshal her troops effectively to stop this strong England team.
Nida Dar – Nida Dar is one of the experienced players in the Pakistan team and she needs to step up her performance. She had bowling figures of 10-1-47-0 & scored 18 runs in the first match.

English openers almost sealed the match with their 188-run opening partnership at the top. Both Daniel Wyatt (110) & Tammy Beaumont (107) scored centuries before being dismissed. Skipper Heather Knight played a good cameo of 44 runs to build on the momentum created by openers.
Their middle order was untested as they had very little time to make a mark. Katherine Brunt and Anya Shrubsole struck early dismissing both openers inside 3 overs. Kate Cross then went through the middle order picking up 4 wickets. Sarah Glenn and Nat Sciver chipped in with 2 & 1 wickets respectively.
England won the match hugely untested and will expect to give another clinical performance in this match too.
Daniel Wyatt – Wyatt played as a scintillating knock of 110 runs in just 95 balls with 12 boundaries and 3 sixes. She took the aggressor`s role and played brilliantly in the last match dominating the 188-run partnership.
Anya Shrubsole – Anya Shribsole is one of the senior bowlers in the England team and she had excellent figures of 7-0-23-1 in the last match. She opened the floodgates with the wicket of Nahida Khan during the last match.

The weather is expected to cool and breezy with 40% chances of rain and rain may interrupt the match for a short time.
Kinrara oval is a good batting venue with average scores in range of 260 runs. We expect another match with high scores over 270 runs.
Teams batting first have won 9 out of 14 matches played here and the pitch tends to slow down as the match progresses.
England team has good quality bowling and batting line-up when compared to the Pakistan team. Pakistan team will have to give a spirited performance to fight against this strong England team.
We expect England to win and continue its dominance over the Pakistan team.
England will win the match!
