Pick of the WWT20 group stages: Old rivalries re-ignite

WWT20 feature

India's match against Pakistan and Australia's game against New Zealand are just two of the mouthwatering clashes scheduled to take place in the group stages of the Women's World T20.

The India-Pakistan rivalry needs little introduction, and is one of the most hotly contested and anticipated not just in cricket, but across all sports. India have won every single women’s ODI between the two sides, but though India have still had the upperhand in T20s, a ledger that reads 8-2 in favour of the Indians indicates that they haven’t had it all their own way.

There’s been no shortage of thrillers either, with those two Pakistani wins coming via nail-biting margins of one and two runs, while India have won one game chasing in the last over and another by just six runs. One of Pakistan's wins came in the previous Women's World T20 in India.

There have also been some cracks showing in the Indian armour recently; though they reached the final of the Women’s World Cup last year, and demonstrated the depth of their talent in the T20 Challenge match, there were a pair of defeats to Bangladesh, India’s first-ever losses in the Asia Cup. Pakistan should feel rightly that they have a good chance – don’t miss this one.

Australia and New Zealand have less heat in their rivalry off the field, but on the field they are two of the highest-quality, most closely matched sides. They know each other well – no two sides have met as often in T20Is – and the White Ferns are one of two sides to have won more matches than they’ve lost against the Aussies.

In World T20s the story is similar, with New Zealand having beaten Australia three times and lost just once. But that one came in the 2010 World T20 final, a thrilling three-run win secured by a stellar spell of 3/18 from Ellyse Perry.

Perry is set to feature again, along with other stars of the game like Suzie Bates, Meg Lanning, Sophie Devine, and Beth Mooney. It’s not one you’ll want to miss.
