It has been a one-sided affair so far with Australia dominating the visitors in every department. There was never a chance for the Pakistan Women at any point in any of the matches.
The variety in the bowling attack has been the biggest strength of the hosts. And it will be once again a key factor in this match. The visitors opted to bat in both of the T20Is so far and failed big time.
There seems to be no way out of their current situation for Pakistan. Whether they opt to bat or bowl first in this game, their failure with the bat will have them on the backfoot. This Australian side has a deep lineup given the all-rounders in their side.
And as such, Pakistan would need to post a highly competitive total if they are to put any pressure on the hosts. Skipper Maroof, Muneeba Ali, and Nida Dar will be key batters for Pakistan in this endeavour.
Australia will come to Canberra with a lot of confidence and momentum on their side as they face Pakistan for the last time in this series. Having already won the ODI series 3-0, the Aussies have clinched the T20I series as well winning the first two games.
Now a win at the Manuka Oval would finish a clean sweep. 9 of the 11 players in this side bowled at least an over each in the last match at Hobart. Such a great variety in the bowling attack would put any opposition on the back foot.
The bowlers restricted Pakistan Women to just 96 for 7 in 20 Overs after the visitors won the toss and opted to bat first. In the first T20I, Schutt picked a fifer while Perry and King finished with two wickets each.
Perry’s fifty at the top headlined Australia’s win as the hosts chased down 119 runs in just 13.2 overs. In the next game, Beth Mooney opened with Meg Lanning and added 60 runs for the first wicket while chasing a 97-runs target.
In the middle order, Tahlia McGrath and Ashleigh Gardener are the key players for Australia Women. The top 4 would be enough to chase down a total against the visitors considering Pakistan’s current form with the bat.

Maroof and the team management and the board at large should now understand the significance of a good domestic circuit. The WBBL has made Aussies what they are today. Pakistan Women lack experience at such a competitive stage and can’t really make any impact against Australia.
It is a lot tougher to beat the hosts in their backyard for this Pakistan team. It would take a lot more work at home before they are ready to dominate the Aussies down under.
Winning a match here seems like a distant dream considering their performances so far on this tour. Maroof needs her team to come together and deliver a much better performance.
They may not be the favourites but they can take a lot of learning from this tour. Muneeba Ali’s 33 off 43 balls would be a concern for the team. Pakistan lost their first wicket for 17 runs in the 2nd T20I.
Muneeba’s was the second wicket to fall in the 11th over. So, it wasn’t like the opener needed to adopt a cautious approach because wickets fell regularly from the other end.
She stayed on the crease for very long and didn’t score much. Sadaf Shamas, Nida Dar, and Omaima Sohail are other key middle-order batsmen who have made contributions in the past.
These three along with skipper Maroof will be responsible to lead the visitors to a respectable total.

The pitch is a balanced one with assistance for both batters and bowlers. It will be a good contest between bat and ball as the two teams meet for the last time in this series. Rain is expected on the match day with a high of 28 degrees Celsius.
Manuka Oval will host the last T20I of the series between Australia Women and Pakistan Women. The average 1st innings score here in Women’s T20Is is 152 runs and even this par total would be enough for Australia to defend.
There isn’t much difference in the results of Women’s T20Is between team batting first and second. However, in the domestic T20s, it is the team bowling first that has an advantage. Aussies with their current bowling form would be more than happy to bowl first and finish a clean sweep in the final T20I.
It is a one-sided game with Australia Women being the dominant side. They haven’t lost a single game so far on Pakistan’s tour of Australia. Pakistan Women couldn't even make the hosts slightly uncomfortable in any of the games so far. With a far superior squad and current form, Australia Women will be the big favourites in our match prediction.
