Match Details:

The 5th game of the 2019 Women’s Emerging Asia Cup will be played between India Emerging Women and Pakistan Emerging Women at the Thurstan Grounds in Colombo.

The match starts at 9:30 AM local time (9:30 AM IST) (4:00 AM GMT).


The arch-rivals India Emerging Women and Pakistan Emerging Women will face off in their respective last league match on Friday. The two teams were considered to be the strongest among the four and are expected to face off in the final again. However, continuous rains in Colombo meant the two teams have to fight in a virtual semi-final. Their matches against Sri Lanka and Bangladesh were washed out without even a toss. Both the teams have players who are coming off good performances.

Weather Condition/Report:

Scattered thunderstorms with rain are expected at the Thurstan Grounds once again. The weather forecast will remain through the day and will be tough to get a game again.

Pitch Condition/Report:

Thurstan Grounds in Colombo is expected to produce medium totals. If the rain permits play, we might see totals around 200 possibly getting chased down. The pacers are likely to enjoy help from the pitch due to the rains over the last couple of days.
