Who will win India vs Pakistan Women T20 Match?
Pakistan Women do have talent in their side but Nida Dar is their only consistent high performer at this level. India Women have strength across their line-up and we expect that to be clear throughout this game.
IND Women vs PAK Women Prediction
In warm and sunny conditions in Cape Town, we expect India Women to put on an impressive showing in this game. They have had plenty of experience of the South African conditions and pitches from the Tri-Nation Series and we expect this to be crucial compared to Pakistan Women who were not long ago playing in Australia. Our prediction is for a convincing win for India Women.
