West Indies Women vs Pakistan Women Match Prediction, ICC WT20 World Cup
West Indies will bid to make it two wins from two at the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup so far, when they take on Pakistan in Group B. The match takes place at Canberra’s Manuka Oval on February 26 and the live action gets underway at 19:00 local time.
Former champions West Indies opened the tournament against newcomers Thailand, and sealed a relatively comfortable victory in the end. Stafanie Taylor led with bat and ball, taking three wickets and scoring an unbeaten 26 in a seven-wicket win.
Pakistan are not as big outsiders as Thailand but they still come into this tournament not expected to qualify from their group. They lost their most recent bilateral series 3-0 to England. With South Africa having beaten England first up, West Indies will know the importance of this match to their semi-final hopes now.

West Indies lost the toss in the first game and so they will be due this one, and are likely to follow the norm of fielding first at the Manuka Oval.
Canberra will be sunny and clear, though there is likely to be some wind about for this match too.
Generally there is a good pace to the Canberra wicket, though it can be a bit of a mix.

WI Women Team News & Playing 11
WIW Team News
Lee-Ann Kirby opened her batting on her return to international cricket. West Indies went with a strong line-up against Thailand and that same team could be repeated to take on Pakistan.
WIW Key Players
Stafanie Taylor: Back from injury and started this tournament by taking 3-13 with the ball and then hitting a patient 26* to lead the run chase in the win against Thailand.
Deandra Dottin: Not yet bowled on her return from injury, but she remains a key player for West Indies and will be key to find some batting form at the very least.
Hayley Matthews: Bowled 13 dot balls on her way to 1-12 last time out, and then scored three boundaries at the top of the order. She is a threat with bat and ball.
WIW Team Form
West Indies started this Women's World Cup 2020 tournament with a routine win against Thailand. Stafanie Taylor took 3-13 to help restrict the World Cup debutants to 78/9, before the captain’s unbeaten 26* anchored the run chase after a sticky start to help seal a seven-wicket win.

Pakistan are the final team to get their tournament underway. From the team which lost to England in Kuala Lumpur, Nahida Khan is the most notable absentee with Muneeba Ali, Aimen Anwar and uncapped Ayesha Naseem all brought into the Bismah Maroof-led squad.
PAKW Key Players
Javeria Khan: Warmed up for the tournament by scoring 41 at the top of the order in their match against Bangladesh. She scored an unbeaten half-century in her most recent WT20i innings before that.
Nida Dar: Played for Sydney Thunder at the WBBL and then took four wickets in her two WT20 internationals against England in December to move to 92 WT20i wickets.
Bismah Maroof: Started the series against England by scoring 60 to move to what is now 11 WT20i half-centuries in exactly 100 innings in her career.
PAKW Team Form
Pakistan lost their most recent WT20i series against England, losing all three matches in Kuala Lumpur. They had previously beaten Bangladesh 3-0 but then warmed up for this tournament by losing their warm-up match to the Tigers despite Javeria Khan having continued her good batting form.
