Women's Asia Cup 2022 Match 6

Women's Asia Cup 2022 Match 6 by 11ic

Malaysia Women take on a face-to-face match against India Women In the fifth match of Women's Asia Cup T20 2022. In their first match of the Asia Cup campaign, Indian women's cricket team showed their quality. Typical of what people have come to expect from them, it was a commanding display. It was also a testament to their strength and power as a team in the T20I format that they managed to get the win with little effort. It is now time to focus on another game that the team is expected to win. That is against their Malaysian counterparts. There were many obstacles Malaysia had to overcome to get to where they are today. A chance to be part of this tournament is enough to motivate the next generation to take up the sport, hoping to one day reach the heights which India occupies right now.

It will be necessary, however, to keep the Indians quiet if they are to achieve that goal. In the match against Sri Lanka, Jemimah Rodrigues made a score that was unreachable for the Islanders. The middle order was bolstered by Harmanpreet Kaur, who played a responsible knock and ensured that Jemimah's efforts did not go unnoticed. The dialogue between Shafali Verma and Smriti Mandhana didn't quite get off to a good start, though. As for her recent form, India shouldn't be too concerned, given that she can plunder runs for fun. As a result, several eyebrows would be furrowed over how Shafali has fared recently. There can be no doubt about her ability to win matches. However, it hasn't been an issue very often in the last few months from an Indian perspective.

Aside from the top order, India has a lot of firepower in other areas of the batting order as well. There is a possibility that Kiran Navgire might get another chance today, since he did not play against Sri Lanka. It is likely that S Meghana would want to maximize the opportunity if given the chance. A number of those who played, including Dayalan Hemalatha, Deepti Sharma and Pooja Vastrakar, can help India's innings to gain momentum. It was their spinners who excelled against Sri Lanka from a bowling standpoint. Radha Yadav was very economical with the ball, while Deepti scooped up a few wickets. In addition to her three wickets, Hemalatha, who is favored for her all-round ability, also contributed two runs. There is a likelihood that the pitches in Bangladesh will tire out and will definitely be more conducive to spinners. Another layer of invincibility could be added to the Indian side if that occurs.

In spite of that, Malaysia still holds the possibility of successful, albeit a slim one. It is true that they don't have as many pedigreed players, but because they don't have anything to lose, they have nothing to lose compared to India. It was an opportunity for them to have fun, not worry about the outcome, and play as freely as possible, knowing that a stunning performance here could propel them into the international spotlight. Considering how strong India is and Malaysia still needs time to find its way around, it doesn't seem like much. Malaysia was thrashed 142 runs by the Women in Blue the last time these two teams met (way back in June 2018). Although each game is different, there are some similarities. That's what Malaysia would tell itself, or at least that's what they would tell themselves
