The Papua New Guinea Women would look to continue with their excellent form as they play Thailand Women in the 11th game of the ICC Women's T20 World Cup Qualifier 2022. Papua New Guinea defeated UAE Women in the last game, which would make the side confident. Thailand comes here with a massive loss against Zimbabwe Women and needs to overcome that defeat.
The Papua New Guinea Women have good hitters of the ball in the side. This is an advantage for them on a flat surface, which we see in this game. Thailand Women struggled on a good batting surface in the last match, exposing their weaknesses. There isn't much to choose between the two teams and this would make this game interesting.
Kaia Arua's side made a solid comeback to the tournament after losing their first game. It was a good show from their batters and bowlers as the side defeated United Arab Emirates Women by 29 runs. They would look to continue with the same form and win here to improve their run rate.
Sibona Jimmy and Naoani Vare played well in the last game, and the pair shall aim to deliver a good start. Tanya Ruma comes with confidence and will look to build partnerships with Brenda Tau and Hollan Doriga in the game. The side would also expect quick runs from Pauke Siaka and Ravini Oa down the order.
The bowling attack impressed against UAE and a good spell would be needed from Mairi Tom and Hollan Doriga in this game. Vicky Araa and Sibona Jimmy must do well in the middle overs of the game as their opponents have good hitters of the ball. Ravini Oa with her good form, adds to side's bowling strength with Isabel Toua.

Naruemol Chaiwai's team was hammered by the Zimbabweans in their last game. The side lost the match by 6 wickets after managing only 86 runs on the board batting first. This loss would hurt the team after they had won their first game. Chaiwai shall look for a better show from her players in this game.
Nannapat Koncharoenka played a good knock at the top, but she didn't find support from the other end. She will need to set up a partnership with Nattakan Chantam. Nattaya Boochatham, Onnicha Kamchomphu and Chaiwai must score runs in the middle and set up a good platform for Sornnarin Tippoch and Chanida Sutthiruang to launch an attack towards the end.
Chanida Sutthiruang and Nattaya Boochatham will have to deliver the early breakthroughs for the side to be in a comfortable position in the game. Rosenan Kanoh and Sornnarin Tippoch have done well with the ball and there would be a lot of expectations from them. Onnicha Kamchomphu and Thipatcha Putthawong shall have to do well in the supporting role.

There are predictions of clear skies over Abu Dhabi on September 21. It will be a warm evening and batting conditions would be perfect. The ball comes onto the bat nicely at this venue, letting batters play their strokes. The side batting first would aim at a score of 160 runs or more.
Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi, has an even surface and a fast outfield making batting easy here. Spinners have done well at this venue as the wicket helps them turn the ball. Fast bowlers have struggled on this wicket as they don't generate enough bounce from the surface.
The side bowling first has gone on to win more than 90% of the games at this ground. It is the most challenging venue in the world to defend a score. We have seen big run chases in the past, and the side winning the toss won't have second thoughts about bowling first.
Thailand Women batters had a miserable outing in the last game. Most of their players failed to execute the plans. The side would need to build partnerships here to put up a challenge against their opponents. Papua New Guinea Women would be confident after a good show with the bat in their previous game. It would make them favorites to win this game.
