BAT:

Murshida Khatun (BAN), LHB:

  • She was the POTM in BAN A’s only completed fixture this season having top scored with her unbeaten knock of 57(44)*
  • She was the POTM when these 2 teams met during the previous season of this competition for her excellent knock of 69 runs
  • She’s never played against Pakistan in a T20I, but has a best score of 44 in ODIs vs them

Eyman Fatima (PAK), RHB:

  • Her selection percentage is quite low ahead of this game, but she’s by far Pakistan A’s best batter on current form
  • She was Pakistan U19s’ leading run-getter during the U19 WC
  • She has come into this tournament on the back of an outstanding knock of 74 against some of the best bowlers in Pakistan during their domestic T20 competition

AR:

Fatima Sana (PAK), RHB/RAM:

  • She returned with impressive figures of 7-0-39-2 when these 2 teams met during the previous season of this competition
  • She’s yet to play in a T20I vs Bangladesh, but has been amongst the wickets in both of her outings vs them in ODIs
  • She’s the only player in this Pakistan A squad to have played in an overseas T20 league (CPL)

Syeda-Aroob Shah (PAK), All Rounder- RHB/RALB:

  • She returned with the best figures by a PAK A bowler in their only win this season: 4-0-16-2
  • She returned with excellent figures of 10-0-35-2 when she took on BAN A during the previous season of this competition
  • She made her ODI debut vs Bangladesh, and returned with brilliant figures of 10-0-37-2

  • She’s been amongst the wickets in 5 out of her 6 T20I outings

Shorna Akter (BAN), RHB/RALB:

  • Her selection percentage for this game might be on the lower side but her ability to dominate the best of bowling attacks coupled with her quality leg-breaks make her a top pick

  • She returned with impressive figures of 4-0-10-1 in BAN A’s only win of this season
  • She’s been amongst the wickets in 3 out of her 4 international outings
  • PAK A batters lost 5 wickets at an average of 8 against off spin in their game vs Nepal. With Sultana being the only off spinner in the BAN A side, she’s likely to cause a lot of trouble to the PAK A batters
