It is the 2nd game of the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2020 and West Indies Women would be up against underdogs Thailand Women. There is a vast gap between the two sides in terms of skills and resources. West Indies is one of the powerhouses of T20 cricket and had won the title in 2016. This is the first appearance for Thai women in the tournament and they will be looking to show their skills.
The biggest challenge for Thailand Women would be the fact that they have never won a game against one of the major teams in this format. The pitch conditions aren’t in their favor either. West Indies Women, on the other hand, would be aiming to start the tournament on the right note and gain momentum before they meet some of the stronger teams in the league stage.

Stafanie Taylor would want her side to guard against complacency in the game. They aren’t up against the strongest of sides in the game but will need to play well to win this game. Taylor would be looking at her key players to perform in the game and gain momentum for the rest of the tournament.
Openers Britney Cooper and Lee-Ann Kirby will need to get the side off to a good start. Both these players are powerful hitters of the ball. The side has a pretty strong middle order with Taylor and Hayley Matthews looking in good form.
Chedean Nation and Chinelle Henry also possess the range of strokes and they will have to play a strong hand in the final overs of the innings. They have a good bowling attack which will look to use the conditions well at Perth. Shamilia Connell and Shakera Selman will be eying early wickets with the new ball. Henry, Afy Fletcher and Anisa Mohammed did well in the warm-up game and they shall look to carry the same form into the next game.
Nattaya Boochatham, Onnicha Kamchomphu, Chanida Sutthiruang, Naruemol Chaiwai, Soraya Lateh, Suleeporn Laomi, Nannapat Khoncharoenkai, Wongpaka Liengprasert, Ratanaporn Padunglerd, Sornnarin Tippoch, Nattakan Chantam
Sornnarin Tippoch would want her side to show some character as they play the first game in the biggest stage they have ever been. They are up against a strong opponent and this is where the captain would want her girls to stick to their basics and not be overwhelmed by the occasion. It is at the top of the order that Nattaya Boochatham and Nattakan Chantam will need to provide the side with a good start. They didn’t do well in the warm-up game.
Nannapat Koncharoenkai, Naruemol Chaiwai and Tippoch will need to focus on building partnerships during the game. Down the order, Chanida Sutthiruang displayed good hitting abilities in the warm-up game and shall look to continue with the same momentum. In the bowling department, Sutthiruang and Soraya Lateh will need to bowl tight lines with the new ball and pick early wickets as the West Indies side has a strong opening pair. They will need good support from Ratanaporn Padunglerd, Onnicha Kamchomphu and Boochatham during the middle overs who shall aim to restrict the scoring rate for West Indies.
Afy Fletcher, Hayley Matthews, Shamilia Connell, Chedean Nation, Chinelle Henry, Anisa Mohammed, Deandra Dottin, Aaliyah Alleyne, Shemaine Campbelle, Lee Ann Kirby, Stafanie Taylor

There would be clouds at Perth on February 22 with chances of rain during the game. The overcast conditions would offer assistance to the fast bowlers as we have always seen at this venue. Batters will need to approach with a cautious mindset and look to build partnerships. Any score in the range of 140 runs would be a fighting total on this surface.
WACA Perth is one of the liveliest pitches in the world. Fast bowlers are able to extract good pace and bounce on this surface. Batters also enjoy ball coming on to the bat and the relatively smaller size of the ground offers lots of boundary scoring opportunities. Teams that have good bowling resources have done well at this venue.
Most teams have opted to bowl first at Perth as the track offers good assistance at the start of the game. The weather is likely to be cloudy and this will make it difficult for the batters. This is the reason we believe the side that wins the toss is likely to opt for bowling first and aim at restricting the opposition to a low total.
There is a wide gap between the two sides going into this game. But in T20 cricket we have seen underdogs often surprise bigger opponents.
Thailand Women would look to take the field with a positive frame of mind.
The West Indies side is better in terms of the batting and bowling resources they have. It will be their game to lose if they are complacent. Going by the past record we believe West Indies Women would start as outright favorites to win this game.
