Both the teams are searching for a win in the World Cup. While Bangladesh have lost two in two, Pakistan have lost three in three. Pakistan bowlers have fared quite well in the tournament so far, but their batters have let them down. There has been lack of collective performance from them. Meanwhile, Bangladesh have been outdone in both their games. Even rain could not save them against New Zealand Women. Both the Asian sides will look to bounce back and register their first win of the tournament.

Not many runs have been scored by the batters of both teams. So, picking a lot of batters won't be a wise decision. However, batters like Bismah Maroof, Omaima Sohail, Nida Dar, Fargana Hoque can fetch some good points. From the bowlers' department, Fariha Trisna, Jahanara Alam, Fatima Sana, and Nashra Sandhu can be good choices.
