After the Dutch women were beautified in the ODI series, the Thai women now have their eyes on the T20I series. The Naruemol Chaiwai-led side took a mighty 10-wicket win over the Netherlands in the first T20I and would look for nothing but to keep up with the momentum.
That Netherlands Team, on the other hand, was pretty pale in the first game as their middle class was smashed like a house of cards. Robine Rijke, 26, was the only one to show some intent as she scored 33 deliveries from 40 to help the Netherlands reach 89 after 20 overs.
Meanwhile, since the women’s Asia Cup, the Thai team has been amazing. The team defeated Pakistan and even qualified for the semifinals of the competition but eventually lost to India. Since then, they have maintained a high level of confidence, which is evident in their recent performances.
Thailand Women vs Netherlands Women, 2nd T20I
Venue: Royal Chiangmai Golf Club, Chiang Mai
Date and Time: November 30, 12:00 PM IST
Details on broadcasts and live streaming: FanCode
The surfacing at Royal Chiangmai Golf Club will help batters and bowlers alike. The team that wins the draw usually prefers to bat first and that is unlikely to change in the second T20I.
Likely playing XIs for TL-W vs. ND–W
Nattakan Chantam, Nannapat Koncharoenkai, Banthida Leephatthana, Chanida Sutthiruang (wk), Naruemol Chaiwai (c), Nattaya Boochatham, Onnicha Kamchomphu, Phannita Maya, Rosenan Kanoh, Suleeporn Laomi, Thipatcha Putthawong
Sterre Kalis (c), Babette de Leede (wk), Silver Siegers, Robine Rijke, Annemijn Thomson, Eva Lynch, Frederique Overdijk, Hannah Landheer, Iris Zwilling, Caroline de Lange, Robyn van Oosterom
Probably best performers of TL-W vs. ND-W
Probably best batsman: Natthakan Chantam
Natthakan Chantam, 26, has been extremely consistent for Thailand in the past. The opener hit 41 runs in the first T20I and helped her team to their first win of the series. Given her form and momentum, Chantam can rise once more and help her team take a 2-0 lead against the Netherlands.
Probably the best thrower: Sulleporn Laomi
Sulleporn Laomi was one of Thailand’s deadliest and most impactful bowlers in the first game. The 24-year-old gave away just 14 runs in her four overs and won three wickets in the first match.
Today’s match prediction: Thailand women win.
