PAK-W vs SL-W 1st T20I Predictions & Betting Tips

Sri Lanka Women's have arrived in Pakistan for the very first time and the historic white-ball series will kick off with the first T20I which will be played on Tuesday, May 24 at the Southend Club Cricket Stadium in Karachi. The match will start at 2:30 PM IST. The 3-match T20I series will be followed by an ODI series consisting of as many matches.

The two teams have played 13 T20I matches against each other, losing and winning six each. Their last meeting in the format was in June 2018. Pakistan and Sri Lanka are placed seventh and eighth respectively in the ICC Women's T20I rankings for teams. Sri Lanka Women will be led by their talented all-rounder Chamari Athapaththu, while Bismah Maroof will be in command of the Pakistan Women squad. Going by the recent forms of the two teams, Sri Lanka will have an upper hand in the fixture and thus, based on that, I have brought you the best three betting tips from the PAK-W vs SL-W 1st T2OI head-to-head encounter.

PAK-W vs SL-W Team Bet:

Mentioned below is the top team bet from the PAK-W vs SL-W head-to-head contest.

Sri Lanka Women to Win

Neither Sri Lanka Women nor Pakistan Women are a prolific T20I side and making a choice among the two becomes difficult, especially when the two teams haven't met in the format since 2018. PAK-W not playing a single T20I game after July 2021 makes it even harder. Therefore, going by the current form, Sri Lanka holds the upper hand against Pakistan in the first match. The Chamari Athapaththu-led side have won their last five matches on the bounce. Four of these matches were played in January this year. Pakistan haven't played a single T20I match for almost one year now and they might take some time to find rhythm. The hosts have lost four of their last five T20I matches. Pakistan Women and Sri Lanka Women haven't. faced each other in the 20-over format since June 2018 and so the result of their last five head-to-head encounters hardly matter. But for sheer information, Pakistan Women have beaten Sri Lanka four out of the last five occasions. Overall, the two teams have won six matches a piece against each other in the shortest format of the game. The all-round ability of Chamari Athapaththu is expected to come handy for Sri Lanka and eyes will also be on Harshitha Madavi, who is averaging 37.60 with the bat from her last ten T20Is. Athapaththu in her last ten matches is averaging 41.10 and carrying a strike rate of 141.75. She has also picked eight wickets during the period. In the bowling department, experienced left-arm pacer Udeshika Prabodhani has picked up six wickets at an stupendous economy of 5.54 in her last eight T20I matches. Athapaththu and Prabodhani were recently in Dubai, taking part in the FairBreak Invitational Tournament. The T20 tournament will hold them in good stead against Pakistan Women who will rely heavily on the likes of Bismah Maroof and Nida Dar. Once the duo fail to deliver, the hosts will find themselves under a lot of pressure. If you feel the same, head over to Pari Match and place your bet on Sri Lanka from the PAK-W vs SL-W head-to-head encounter.

PAK-W vs SL-W Player Bets:

Chamari Athapaththu and Bismah Maroof are my top two player betting tips for the PAK-W vs SL-W 1st T20I match. Have a look at it for reaping the best returns.

Chamari Athapaththu to score impeccably

Sri Lanka captain Chamari Athapaththu is one of the top players to watch out for in the 3-match T20I series and the following ODI series. The 32-year-old has played 89 matches so far to score 1867 runs at an average of 21.70 and strike-rate of 103.49. Athapaththu has a hundred and four fifties to her name. Her record in the last 10 T20Is improves leaps and bounds. The southpaw has scored 421 runs at an average of 42.10 in her last 10 T20Is. Her good show with the ball which has seen her take eight wickets during the period has boosted her batting confidence further. Chamari Athapaththu has scored only 135 runs in nine matches against Pakistan but that does not at all discredit her potential. Her last five innings against Pakistan Women have seen her score - 0, 13, 10, 31 and 44 runs. Representing Falcons Women in the FairBreak Invitational Tournament in Dubai this month, Chamari Athapaththu was at her brutal best. In her first outing in the T20 tournament, she slammed 107 unbeaten runs. She followed it with scores of - 42, 42, 30, 20, 63 and 9. In total, Athapaththu scored 313 runs at an average of 52.16 to finish the tournament as the leading run-scorer. Considering her rich vein of form, Chamari Athapaththu is most certain of scoring impeccably in the first PAK-W vs SL-W T20I. To place your bet, proceed to Pari Match and keep an eye out for Chamari Athapaththu from the ZIM vs NAM 4th T20I head-to-head encounter.

Bismah Maroof to score high

Pakistan captain Bismah Maroof has a massive experience of featuring in 108 T20Is in which she has scored 2225 runs at an average of 27.46. The 30-year-old's record improves against Sri Lanka, the team against whom she has scored most T20I runs in her career. In her 13 matches against Sri Lanka, Bismah Maroof has scored 442 runs at an average of 55.25. The southpaw has scored as many as four fifties against the islanders. During Pakistan Women's last T20I meeting against Sri Lanka Women in 2018, Bismah Maroof had scored 60 unbeaten runs off just 41 balls. The Lahore-born's last six scores against Sri Lanka Women are - 60, 1, 20, 42, 17 and 46. At the Southend Club Cricket Stadium, the venue for the first T20I in Karachi, Maroof averages 65.66 from five matches in which she has scored 197 runs. Earlier in May, Bismah Maroof warmed up for the Sri Lanka T20Is by featuring for Spirit Women in the FairBreak Invitational Tournament. In the T20 tournament in Dubai she registered scores of - 5, 19*, 40*, 18, 23, 0 and 1*. Considering all the aforementioned facts, we can expect Bismah Maroof to score high in the first PAK-W vs SL-W T20I.
