ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2020: 6th Warm-up match, Australia vs South Africa: Dream11 Fantasy Cricket Tips – Playing XI, Pitch Report & Injury Update
Beth Mooney is in good form. She mustered 208 runs in five games averaging 52 in the Tri-series.
The 6th warm-up match of the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2020 will be played between Australia Women and South Africa Women at Karen Rolton Oval, Adelaide in South Australia.
The match starts at 10:30 AM local time (5:30 AM IST) (12:00 AM GMT).
Australia Women will look to utilise the last opportunity to get fully geared up for the T20 World Cup that is scheduled to begin from February 21. Their first practice match got abandoned due to rain but they will look to utilise this chance to the fullest to fill the voids in their side. In batting, Alyssa Healy, Beth Mooney and Ashleigh Gardner will try to score runs so that they can go in the mega event with much-needed confidence. On the other hand, their bowling will look to find the grooves that will help them in getting off the mark with full flow.
South Africa Women looked to regain form in the previous game against Sri Lanka Women as the former outclassed the latter with sheer dominance. However, their top order was exposed, who once again failed to score runs for their team. In the last warm-up game ahead of the mega event, all their out of form batters will look to get in touch whereas bowlers still did an impressive job in the previous game, who successfully restricted the opponents from chasing down the target. Sune Luus took an amazing 4-wicket haul for their side. And her form is one of the biggest positives for South Africa Women going into the mega event.
The weather forecast says that it is going to be a perfect day for a cricket match with no chances of rain. The wind will be blowing at a rate of 9 to 13 km/hr whereas the temperature will hover between 18 and 28 Degree Celsius throughout the day according to Accuweather.
The track at Karen Rolton Oval is expected to offer a good battle between the bat and ball. So far it has hosted two warm-up games in which bowlers have managed to take an edge against the batters. It is difficult ground for the chasing side but not impossible. A total around 150 could turn out to be a par score at the venue.
Average first innings score: 140 (Warm-up games played at this venue)
Record of chasing teams: Won – 1, Lost – 1

Alyssa Healy is an obvious pick for any fantasy side. Though she is out of form, Healy will look to get back into the groove with a good show in this game. Beth Mooney will also play a vital role in the dream11 fantasy team, who is in scintillating form with the bat. She mustered 208 runs in five games averaging 52 in the Tri-series.
