Chanida Sutthiruang is the best choice for using the multiplier option.
The Final of the 2019 ICC Women’s T20 World Cup Qualifier between Bangladesh Women and Thailand Women will be hosted by the Forthill in Dundee.
The match starts at 2:00 PM local time (1:00 PM GMT) (6:30 PM IST).
This match will be live on T20 World Cup Facebook page and ICC YouTube Channel.
The Qualifier tournament comes down to the final where Bangladesh Women will face off Thailand Women. The two teams won all the matches on their road to the final and confirmed their berths in the Women’s T20 World Cup to be hosted by Australia next year. This will be Thailand’s maiden appearance in a T20 Cricket World Cup. Coming into the tournament they recorded the longest winning streak in T20Is.
On the other hand, Bangladesh Women confirmed their place in 4th consecutive Women’s T20 World Cup. They were considered to be the favourites to win the tournament and have not let down those expectations. The two teams faced off three times in T20Is including once in the 2018 Asia Cup T20I that the Bangladesh Women won. The Bangladesh team registered wins in all those three matches.
Another day without any rain threat is expected at the Forthill in Dundee. The weather forecast for Saturday here looks quite clear and so, a full game without any interruption is expected.
Bangladesh and Thailand chased down the targets in the Forthill during the semi-finals. Till that point, no team managed to chase a target in a match that lasted 20 overs at this venue. However, the targets being under 100 could be one of the reasons for this change.

Ritu Moni picked up five wickets in four matches in this tournament but had only four T20I wickets from 22 matches before this tournament. Nattaya Boochatham has got a brilliant record in T20Is with both ball and bat. However, this tournament has been a quiet one and will hope to finish on high.
Captain and Vice-Captain Selection:
Captain – Chanida Sutthiruang, Nahida Akter, Ritu Moni
Vice-Captain – Nigar Sultana, Sornnarin Tippoch, Nattaya Boochatham
Chanida Sutthiruang‘s lowest came in the previous game where she earned 25 points. This is why she is an easy and safe choice for using a multiplier.
Suggested Playing XI No.1 for Fantasy Cricket:
Keeper – Nigar Sultana
Batters – Sanjida Islam, Fargana Hoque, Naruemol Chaiwai, Nattakan Chantam
All-Rounders – Chanida Sutthiruang (C), Ritu Moni, Sornnarin Tippoch
Bowlers – Suleeporn Laomi, Fahima Khatun, Nahida Akter (VC)
Suggested Playing XI No.2 for Fantasy Cricket:
Keeper – Nigar Sultana (VC)
Batters – Sanjida Islam, Murshida Khatun, Naruemol Chaiwai
All-Rounders – Chanida Sutthiruang (VC), Ritu Moni (C), Sornnarin Tippoch, Nattaya Boochatham
Bowlers – Suleeporn Laomi, Fahima Khatun, Nahida Akter
Spinners of both the teams will be crucial since the Forthill has been a slow track. Suleeporn Laomi, Fahima Khatun and Nahida Akter have been consistent in this tournament and can be the three picks among bowlers for this match.
Bangladesh Women are expected to win this tournament by defeating Thailand Women in the final.
