Australia Women kicked off the ODI series with a win in the first game. It was also their first match of the ICC Women’s Championship 2022-25 cycle. Pakistan Women have won 5 of their 6 Championship matches so far and are number 2 in the standings.
Their recent home series against South Africa is the major reason for Pakistan Women’s position in the Women’s Championship table. Skipper Bismah Maroof led the team to 3 consecutive wins over the visiting Ireland team.
However, they didn’t look like the same team when they took on the Aussies at the Allan Border Field in Brisbane in the opening ODI of the series. Sidra Ameen and Bismah Maroof, the stars of the series win against Ireland failed against the Aussie attack.
Megan Schutt, Elysee Perry, and Ashleigh Gardner will pose a tough challenge to the Pakistan batting order. Australia has a great variety in bowling attack and are likely to continue their dominance.
They may have started their 2022-25 Women’s Championship cycle a bit later than other teams, but Australia will surely climb to the top. This will be the last home series for Australia Women before they begin their T20 World title defence in South Africa in February.
Australia’s got the perfect balance in their playing XI against Pakistan in this ODI series. There are 4 all-rounders and 4 bowlers which adds depth to the batting lineup and a great variety in the bowling attack.
Phoebe Litchfield and skipper Meg Lanning scored a fifty each and together added 137 runs for the 2nd wicket in the last game. These two will be the key top-order batters to watch out for. Batting all-rounders Ashleigh Gardner is a great finisher lower down the order.
She was the player of the series in the T20Is on Australia’s tour of India. She made consistent contributions with both bat and ball. Gardner dismissed Pakistan skipper Maroof in the last game and finished with figures of 1 for 15 in 5 overs.
Batting all-rounder Tahlia McGrath will be responsible for building partnerships along with Ellyse Perry in the middle order. Darcie Brown and Megan Schutt will lead the bowling attack for the Aussies and are among the wicket-taking bowlers.

Pakistan are placed second in the ICC Women’s Championship points table with 5 wins from 6 matches. Their only loss so far has come against Australia Women in this series.
However, it should be noted that Pakistan Women’s last ODI series which they won 3-0 against Ireland was back in November 2022. So, naturally, they wouldn’t be carrying that momentum into this series. And it was clear with Pakistan’s performance in the opening match.
The top run scorers from that series Sidra Ameen and Bismah Maroof failed to get going against a quality Aussie bowling attack. Muneeba Ali was also among the centurions from the South Africa series and will be expected to deliver in the second ODI against Australia.
The 44 runs stand between Nida Dar and Maroof for the 4th wicket was the highest partnership for Pakistan Women. Omaima Sohail and Aliya Riaz are other key batters in the middle order expected to lead Pakistan to a competitive total.
There aren’t many match winners in this side. A lot depends on the top-order players and if Sohail and Nida Dar can also contribute in the middle and lower order, the visitor can hope for a good score.
Nashra Sandhu, Fatima Sana, and Diana Baig will be the key bowlers in the side to watch out for. The biggest challenge facing Pakistan will be the Aussie bowling attack.

The pitch at the Allan Border Field in Brisbane is a balanced one. It assists both batters and bowlers and it was evident in the opening match of this ODI series. The weather would be partly cloudy with a high of 28 degrees Celsius.
Allan Border Field has only hosted Women’s cricket matches. The average 1st innings score in ODIs here is 229 runs. There have been 8 scores of below 250 runs at this ground.
Teams bowling first at this venue have won 6 of the 12 Women’s ODI matches. Australia won their last game here after opting to bowl first. The talented batters made it look quite easy to bat even though Pakistan had struggled to score even a par total. In all, it seems quite difficult to set a competitive target here and both skippers would prefer to bowl first.
The Australian squad is a lot stronger than the visiting team. The all-rounders that deliver consistently with bat and ball combined with an in-form top-order make the hosts a formidable force. Pakistan have a few good players in the batting lineup who can pull them back. However, on the whole, Australia Women are way ahead in this contest and will be favourites in our match prediction.
Our prediction is for Australia to win
