UAE Women will take on the Hong Kong Women in the first of four T20Is to be played at the Malek Cricket Ground in Ajman on the 27th of April. Both sides have met twice before this series and both games have gone in the favour of the UAE Women in the past. However, Hong Kong Women will be looking to put up a better performance this time around. 

The last meeting between these two teams happened in the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup Asia Region Qualifier in Dubai last year and it went down write into the wire to find out the winner. UAE posted 128 on the board in their first innings, and Hong Kong came very close to chasing down the total but eventually lost the game by just 11 runs.

Pitch Report

The pitch has generally assisted the batters really well in the recent tournaments and the same could be expected in the upcoming fixture as well. The bowlers will find it difficult to grip the ball as the dew factor is likely to come in later in the day.

Probable best batter of the Match: Kavisha Egodage

Kavisha Egodage has been one of the consistent run-scorers for the UAE Women’s side since her debut in 2018 and she has gone on to score 521 runs in 23 games at an average of 37.2 and a strike rate of 119. The 19-year-old plays in the top order for UAE Women and she will be crucial to the plans of her side.

Probable best bowler of the Match: Chaya Mughal

Chaya Mughal takes the new ball usually for the UAE Women’s side and she recently picked up a three-wicket haul against Oman Women last month as well. The 35-year-old can provide breakthroughs in crunch situations and she has a brilliant economy rate as well in T20Is. She will be looking to lead the bowling attack for the UAE Women in the upcoming fixture.
