The FIBA Women’s World Cup Serbia vs Japan match will be held on September 23, 12:00 PM (International Time) and September 23, 7:30 AM (Indian Time).
The match is Serbia vs Japan. And both the teams will be dependent on their star players who will lead them to win the coming match. Anderson’s on-court dynamism will be a crucial piece of the puzzle if Serbia is to advance out of the group stage in Sydney. As the Group A MVP from the World Cup qualifiers earlier this year, Anderson averaged 22.7 points, 4.3 assists, and two steals per game to ensure Serbia were unbeaten at the event. In the first round of the event, Serbia will play France, Japan, Canada, Australia, and Mali with the knowledge that only four teams will advance.
For Japan, they will highly be dependent on its 31-year-old center Tokashiki Ramu. Due to her return, Japan is among the favorites in their group to go to the quarter-finals. Tokashiki hasn’t competed at a significant international event since Rio 2016 when Japan made eventual gold medalists the United States uncomfortable for a period of time in their quarterfinal. Ramu tore the ACL in her right knee in December 2020, forcing her to make do with watching her teammates’ heroic trek to the final. Tokashiki is enthusiastic about this World Cup in spite of the new regime in Japan. Lauren Jackson, a former colleague of hers on the Seattle Storm, is preparing for a sort of revenge, and she is eager to play against her.
