Pakistan Women seem to be down in confidence and form at the moment as they started the ODI series with a loss after being whitewashed during the T20 leg of their tour. It was yet another poor display by their batters that saw them going down by 5 wickets in the last game. West Indies Women have stuck to their basics so far and they would be happy with their performance in the last four games.
It is in the batting department that the Pakistanis have suffered the most during this tour. The absence of their regular skipper Bismah Maroof has been felt as most other batters have not shown consistency so far in the tour. The side would have to regroup and come up with a better performance in this game to level the series. West Indies would aim for a 2-0 lead with a win in this game.
Stafanie Taylor’s side started the ODI series from where they had left during the T20s. The skipper led from the front scoring a brilliant hundred in the game and leading her side to a win. They have now put the Pakistanis under serious pressure and Taylor would like to maintain that and register a victory in this game.
Hayley Matthews and Kyshona Knight went out cheaply in the last game and a better show would be expected from them in this game. Taylor hit a brilliant hundred in the last game and this would make her confident. She would look to set up partnerships with Deandra Dottin and Kycia Knight. Down the order Chedean Nation and Britney Cooper are good hitters of the ball and they would be expected do well in this game.
Their bowlers did a good job in the last game with Shamilia Connell and Shakera Selman bowling tight spells with the new ball. Matthews and Caneisha Isaac also didn’t allow the Pakistanis to improve their scoring rate. Taylor and Anisa Mohammed made good use of their experience sharing 5 wickets between them and make this attack formidable.

Javeria Khan would know the importance of a win here. Since the start of the tour the side has had to deal with losses. Their batters have been in poor form and have failed to live up to the challenge. Khan would want the team to put behind the losses and play positive cricket here to win this game.
Muneeba Ali and Ayesha Zafar did well in the last game and the side would look for another positive start from them. The duo would have to improve their scoring rate for this game. Down the order the side would be expecting runs in this game from Javeria Khan, Omaima Sohail and Nida Dar. The likes of Aliya Riaz and Sidra Nawaz must make contributions considering the form of the top order.
Pakistan Women bowlers have done well in this tour and even in the last game they went about defending the low total with positive intent. The side would need early wickets from Fatima Sana and Diana Baig in this game. Nashra Sandhu, Nida Dar and Sadia Iqbal had done well in the last game and the same would be expected from them here as well.

The skies over Antigua would be clear on July 09. There would be some slowness on the surface which is likely to make the conditions tough for the batters. They must spend time at the crease and gather runs. The side batting first would have a target score of 250 runs in mind which would be tough to score here.
Coolidge Cricket Ground, Antigua is a small ground and batters can score runs freely on this surface. Fast bowlers do get some early aid from the surface. The slowness on this surface does offer bowlers lot to play with as the odd ball can turn sharply and surprise the batters.
The wicket hasn’t changed much in character in the last few games that have been played here. There is early assistance for the bowlers here on this surface. The side winning the toss would like to take advantage of it and we expect the side to opt for bowling first on this surface.
Alarm bells have already been sounded for Pakistan Women on this tour. Their batters have displayed poor form, and this has resulted in big losses for the side so far. The side would need to come up with a better performance with the bat in this game to defeat the hosts. West Indies Women have stuck to the basics, and this has yielded results for them. They would start favorites to win this game.
