Pakistan's high-flying women's team arrived yesterday for a three-match series against their Hong Kong counterparts, who are building up towards the Asia Cricket Council's women's tournament in July. The Pakistanis will be outright favourites to sweep the one-day series as they are fresh from their recent successes at the Women's World Cup, where they reached the Super Six stage after recording memorable wins over South Africa and Sri Lanka. But Hong Kong captain Neisha Pratt was confident her young team could stretch the visitors and believed the opportunity to play against top-class opposition would help develop their game further. 'While we have a very young team, many of the players have played a number of international games before,' Pratt said. 'Hopefully we will see more players contributing and improving their own performances. We are very lucky to have a team of Pakistan's calibre touring here and we need to maximise the opportunity.' The first of the three 50-over games will be played tomorrow at Kowloon Cricket Club, the second on Wednesday at Hong Kong Cricket Club, and the final game on Friday at KCC. 'This is an exciting chance to showcase international women's cricket in Hong Kong,' said Hong Kong coach Aftab Habib.
