Thailand Women’s quest for entry into the next round
Thailand Women to win

United States Women would have their backs to the wall going into the 10th game of ICC Women’s World Cup Qualifier 2021 where they meed confident Thailand Women. The United States suffered its second consecutive loss of the season going down against Zimbabwe Women in the last game. Thailand Women on the other hand come here with a win over Bangladesh Women.
United States Women have struggled with their batting and the side has made a total of 184 runs in the two games they have played. Their top order has been in poor form and this is hurting the side. Thailand Women are a win away from a berth in the next round and it would be interesting if the United States can cause an upset in this game.
All doesn’t seem to be well in the camp for the side. They replaced Gargi Bhogle as skipper in the last game and have given Sindhu Sriharsha the responsibility to lead the side. Though the side fought well against Zimbabwe Women, they went down by 1 wicket. Sriharsha would look forward to a better show from her players in this game and win it to keep their hopes alive for the rest of the tournament.
Openers Bhogle and Mahika Kandanala need to convert their starts as Thailand Women have a strong bowling attack. The middle-order has failed in the tournament and runs would be needed from Sriharsha at No. 3 and she would have to anchor the innings along with Lisa Ramjit and Shebani Bhaskar. They would also need contributions down the order from Anika Kolan, Moksha Chaudhary, and Tara Norris.
Tara Norris and Sara Farooq bowled brilliantly in the last game with the new ball and similar spells would be expected from them in this game. Chaudhary's 4-wicket spell would add to her confidence and she would have an important role to play in the middle overs. The side would need good support from Geetika Kodali and Akshatha Rao in this game.

Skipper Naruemol Chaiwai would be extremely happy with the show her side put up in the last game against Bangladesh Women. Few would have expected them to win the game but the side bowled well to restrict the opposition to a small total and chased it down comfortable winning by 16 runs under the DLS method. Chaiwai would aim for a win here and book a berth in the next round.
Sornnarin Tippoch and Nattakan Chantam set up a good opening wicket stand in the last game and they would look for a similar start here. Nannapat Koncharoenkai and Chaiwai add solidity to the middle order and a good show would be expected from them. The side would also expect runs down the order from Wongpaka Liengprasert, Onnicha Kamchomphu, and Nattaya Boochatham in this game.
Chanida Sutthiruang and Nattaya Boochatham have shown good form and the side would like to see early wickets from them in this game. Rosenan Kanoh and Thipatcha Putthawong bowled tight spells in the last game and the same would be expected from them here. Tippoch, Suleeporn Laomi, and Onnicha Kamchomphu add good variety to this bowling attack.

We would see some clouds over Harare on November 27 and this is likely to assist the bowlers. The wicket has been slow and this has created doubts in the minds of the batters. Bowlers are likely to enjoy the conditions here. The side batting first would need 230 runs on the board to do well in the game.
Old Hararians Sports Club, Harare, is a large ground and the thick grass cover makes it a slow outfield where batters have struggled to score quick runs. There is assistance for the fast bowlers with the new ball on this surface. Spinners have also done well at this venue as the ball stops on the batters and creates doubts in their minds.
We have seen a difficult batting surface in the last game that was played at this venue. The side batting first would find it challenging to set a total with early assistance for the bowlers. The side winning the toss in this game should have no hesitation in opting to bat first in the game.
It would be a contest between two sides in contrasting form. United States Women have been overwhelmed in the two games they have played. Their batting is in poor shape and the side would have to make improvements in the game to win here. Thailand comes into this contest after a win against one of the top sides and this would add to their confidence and make them favorites to win this game.
