India Women (IND-W) will lock horns against traditional rivals Pakistan Women (PAK-W) in the 5th T20I match of the Commonwealth Games 2022 at Edgbaston in Birmingham on Sunday. India Women suffered a disappointing three-wicket defeat in the opening match against Australia Women. Renuka Singh took four wickets while conceding 18 runs after a brilliant fifty from captain Harmanpreet Kaur.

Pakistan Women started their 2022 CWG campaign with a 15-run defeat against Barbados Women. They managed to restrict Barbados to just 144/4 but batters struggled to maintain the required run rate and scored just 129 runs with four wickets in hand. Pakistan last won against team India in 2016 and have lost all four matches since then. It will be a no-brainer to choose an Indian player to captain and vice-captain your Dream11 fantasy team.

Here are the top 3 captain or vice-captain picks in IND-W vs PAK-W Dream11 Fantasy Cricket team:

1. Smriti Mandhana:

The 25-year-old Indian opener ranks fourth in ICC T20I Batter’s chart and will be a key batter for India in this match. She scored 24 runs off just 17 balls with the help of five fours against Australia but failed to convert that into a big score. She has scored 2057 runs in 88 T20I matches at an average of 25.71 and a strike rate of 120.36. She smashed unbeaten 94 runs against Sri Lanka in the second T20I match this month and scored 62 runs in three T20I matches.

2. Deepti Sharma:

The in-form spinner is India’s highest-ranked bowler and all-rounder in ICC T20I charts. The right-arm off-spinner has taken 65 runs in just 46 T20I innings at an average of 20.69 and an economy rate of 6.16. Deepti has impressive numbers with the bat as well with 521 runs at an average of 20.84. She scored just one run in the first match against Australia but was excellent with the ball. She took two wickets at an impressive economy rate of 6.00 and is a safe captaincy choice in this match.

3. Harmanpreet Kaur:

The Indian skipper played a crucial knock of 52 runs off just 34 balls in the opening match against Australia. She smashed eight fours and one big six to Jess Jonassen at a strike rate of 152.9 and overshadowed Shafali Verma’s 48-run knock. Kaur is in excellent form in all formats with 241 runs in her last five overall matches. She can contribute more points to your Dream11 fantasy team with her ability to take wickets in middle-overs.
