The tournament has reached the business end and it’s getting more and more intense. New Zealand Women must win this match by a massive margin to give themselves a chance to stay alive and then they will qualify only if England and India lose their respective final league matches. Even net run-rate will come into play. The hosts didn’t make the most of the home conditions and managed to win only 2 of their 6 matches played. At present they positioned themselves at the 6th spot in the standings with 4 points.
Pakistan Women on the other hand had an awful tournament, they were below par in most of the matches and ended up winning only one. They throw away the wickets in the crucial moments which in the end cost them immensely. They must win this match in order to avoid finishing at the bottom of the standings.
