The 3rd warm-up match of the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2020 will be played between Bangladesh Women and Thailand Women at the Allan Border Field in Brisbane.
The match starts at 10:00 AM local time (5:30 AM IST) (12:00 AM GMT)
Thailand Women are geared up for their maiden appearance at a major ICC event as they face Bangladesh Women in the warm-up match ahead of the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2020. Interestingly, Thailand and Bangladesh faced off in the final of the Women’s T20 CWC Qualifiers. Bangladesh ended up winning the title of the Qualifiers as they beat Thailand by 70 runs. The two teams were part of the Quadrangular T20 series hosted by India where India A and India B were other two sides.
The weather in Brisbane continues to improve after the game between Australia and West Indies was called off a day before the match due to wet outfield.
The Allan Border Field is expected to be a high-scoring venue during the recent WBBL where there were three successful 160+ chases. The chasing teams won seven of the 8 matches this season and hence the teams winning the toss at this venue would prefer to Bowl first. The rains in the last couple of days could have left out moisture over the pitch which could assist the pacers.
Average first innings score: 141 (WBBL 2019/20)
Record of chasing teams: Won – 7, Lost – 1

Bangladesh Women could edge out Thailand Women in a thriller.
