Players to watch
Annette Braarup Lyng: She is one of the best all-round players in the Danish team. With the bat she has made 128 runs in the T20 format, which is the highest in the team and with the ball she has scalped six wickets.
Divya Golecha: She is a wicket-keeper and a right-handed batsman from Denmark. She has taken 67 rides in T20. Apart from this, she can also ball the right arm’s average tempo and has accounted for nine wickets.
Gunjan Shukla: Sweden’s captain won the match’s players in his latest play against Norway. The left arm seam hit 1-5 on four overs. She balled well in the middle and led the team to a win of nine wickets.
Kanchan Rana: The right-handed initial batter in Sweden scored the best goal with an unbeaten 27 of 28 balls in their last match against Norway. She led the run chase from the front when she took the attack to the opposition.
The wicket is not too favorable for strokes. In the three ladies’ T20Is that have been played at this arena, none of the teams have passed the 100-race limit. The cloudy conditions can help bowlers, especially fast bowlers. Teams that are second have won all three matches.
The weather is expected to be mostly cloudy and may get a rain shower. The average temperature will be around 14 degrees Celsius. There will be 90 percent cloud cover and 80 percent chance of rain. The wind will be blowing from the north-northwest.
