England has already advanced to the semi-finals.
Heather Knight is having a fantastic time in the ongoing Women’s T20 World Cup 2023, leading England (ENG-W) to three consecutive group stage wins. As a result, the Three Lions have earned a spot in the marquee event’s semi-finals.
Pakistan (PAK-W) has been eliminated after India defeated Ireland by five runs (DLS) in a rain-affected match to qualify alongside England from Group B. However, Bismah Maroof and company will play for pride when they face England on February 21 at Newlands in Cape Town.
Pakistan’s batting will need to be fearless if they are to face the likes of Sophie Ecclestone, Sarah Glenn, and Nat Sciver-Brunt, among other England stars.
