PAK-W vs MAL-W: Pakistan Women will take on Malaysia Women in the third match of the Women’s Asia Cup 2022. The continental tournament kicked off on Saturday, 1st October 2022. Bangladesh is the host for the entire tournament.
Pakistan is returning to the field after a dismaying outing at the Commonwealth Games 2022 held in Birmingham. They failed to win even a single game throughout the contest. Bismah Maroof-led Pakistan women will hope to leave the agony behind and start afresh with a win.
Malaysia Women, on the other hand, is an inexperienced unit. They haven’t played many international games in a while. The Continental Cup will be a good opportunity for them to grow and raise their cricketing standards.

Pakistan Women are certainly the probable winners of this game. Their odds are better than Malaysia’s in all departments. However, Pakistan should not take Malaysia lightly. They need to step up as a unit, especially the batters. Bowling is their strong suit and they should look to dominate the Malaysians. Both teams will look to start the tournament on a winning note. But, as of now, Pakistan women look like the winners of this game.
