According to Accuweather, the temperature is set to stray between 12-17 degrees Celsius and the humidity is set to be around 60%. The sky will have some cloud cover in Melbourne and but there's a no forecast of rain. The overcast conditions might aid the fast bowlers in the Sri Lanka Women vs Bangladesh Women's T20 World Cup match. The pitch at the Junction Oval stadium in Melbourne is expected to be on the slower side as during earlier games of the tournament as well we witnessed lower scores and batsmen had struggled to play freely.
The match will be played at Junction Oval Stadium in Melbourne. it will be the third match of the ongoing tournament at this venue.
Out of the last seven T20 played at this venue, four times batting the first team won the game whereas three times by a chasing team. Records are in favor of the chasing team and also as we expect the pitch to be on the slower side, both teams would look to bat first. Hence, the toss winning team is expected to bat first.
Both the teams had a disappointing tournament as both their batsmen and bowlers failed to play their roles in perfections. However, considering the performances in most recent games, we predict the Bangladesh Women team will have an edge over Sri Lanka Women team.
Our prediction is Bangladesh women to win this match!
