After white-washing Pakistan in the ODI series, the Australian team would be eyeing for a clean sweep in the T20 format as well. The Meg Lanning-led side lead the series 2-0, having won both the games by eight wickets. They would hope to continue in the same manner to build momentum ahead of the women’s T20 World Cup in South Africa.
Meanwhile, Bismah Maroof-led side would hope for a better batting performance in the third T20I. Stumper-batter Muneeba Ali gave Pakistan a strong start in the previous game but the middle-order failed to capitalize courtesy of the Aussie bowlers who kept the Women in Green under tremendous pressure rand restricted them to just 96/7 .
With the bat, Beth Mooney gave Australia a flying start, scoring 46 off 29 deliveries while Meg Lanning too played an important innings as Australia chased the total down with 7.2 overs left. Other than Nida Dar, all the other bowlers of the Pakistan team looked pale and that’s not a good sign ahead of the marquee tournament. The team needs to improve massively in order to do well in the T20 World Cup.

It is going to be a balanced surface at Manuka Oval on Sunday. Bowling first will be ideal and anything above 130 will be a good score on this wicket.

Probable Best Performers from AUS-W vs PAK-W
Probable best batter: Beth Mooney
Replacing Ellyse Perry at the top of the order in the last match, stumper-batter Beth Mooney did well but failed to convert her start. In the next match, she would hope to change that and make the most of the opportunity.
Probable best bowler: Megan Schutt
After a poor outing against India in December, the 30-year-old Megan Schutt has returned to her very best, picking up five wickets in two matches. However, there is a lot of room for improvement and thus, she still needs to work hard to get better.
