The weather at Sylhet is clear with no chance of rain during the BAN-W vs PAK-W game.
The Sylhet track is a little dry and is likely to take turn as the match progresses. Batting first will be a better option.

Despite Pakistan struggling, their captain remains a strong player. She is still scoring runs at a consistent basis and despite her lower strike-rate, remains a threat to the opposition.
Fargana Hoque has fond memories of facing Pakistan as she played a central role in the World Cup encounter this year. She ensured the bowlers had enough to defend back then and will be looking to give a similar performance this time around as well.
Pakistan may have lost the World Cup encounter but will back themselves to do better this time. They have a strong bowling attack and with the ball turning they should be dangerous to face.
