Australia won the first game by eight wickets as they chased down a paltry target of 119 runs with 86 balls to spare. Megan Schutt, who had been out of form during the series against India, found here mojo back and returned with a five-wicket haul. She registered figures of 5/15 in her four-over spell, which helped Australia restrict Pakistan for mere 118 runs in their 20-overs quota.

The ongoing T20I series acts as a preparatory series for both teams as they gear up for the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup which is set to commence on February 10 in South Africa.

Pitch Report

Hobart's pitch is typically favorable for batting because it has an even amount of bounce and is flat. The pacers will pose a threat during the initial overs of the game and will prove crucial with the new ball. The speedy outfield on this surface will benefit the batters. In the recent few games on this turf, the teams chasing have done really well and thus the skipper winning the toss might opt to chase.

Probable Playing XIs for AUS-W vs PAK-W

Australia Women (AUS-W):

Beth Mooney (wk), Meg Lanning (c), Tahlia McGrath, Ashleigh Gardner, Ellyse Perry, Grace Harris, Annabel Sutherland, Jess Jonassen, Alana King, Megan Schutt, Darcie Brown

Pakistan Women (PAK-W):

Muneeba Ali (wk), Javeria Khan, Bismah Maroof (c), Nida Dar, Sadaf Shamas, Omaima Sohail, Ayesha Naseem, Fatima Sana, Tuba Hassan, Aiman Anwer, Sadia Iqbal

Probable Best Performers from AUS-W vs PAK-W

Probable best batter: Ellyse Perry

Australia made a unique move by sending Perry to bat on top of the order in the previous game. To everyone’s surprise, it worked for the team as Perry hammered the Pakistani bowlers and led her team’s batting with a magnificent half-century. She has been in great form while batting in the middle-order as well and thus will be the one to watch out for if given the opportunity to open again.

Probable best bowler: Megan Schutt

After a poor outing against India in December, the five-wicket haul was exactly what Megan Schutt needed as a confidence booster. With the all-important T20 World Cup on the line, defending champions Australia would want their players to be in good touch and perform consistently. With the pitch being supportive of pacers with the new ball, Schutt will be the standout player.
