West Indies Women vs India Women Team Previews
Stafanie Taylor’s team proved that their victory over New Zealand was no fluke. They defeated England Women by 7 runs in a close contest to claim their second consecutive tournament victory. Taylor would like her players to maintain their current momentum and move to the top of the points table with a win over India.
Haley Matthews has been in excellent form, and the team hopes she can provide an electrifying start opening the batting with Deandra Dottin. Kycia Knight and Taylor have struggled in both games, and the team would benefit from a strong start from them here. Shemaine Campbelle and Chedean Nation delivered solid knocks in the previous game, and they will look to replicate that performance down the order in this game.
Their bowlers performed admirably in the previous game, and the team would like to see early strikes from the new ball pairing of Shamilia Connell and Henry. Anisa Mohammed and Matthews also contributed with strong spells, and they must maintain the momentum. This attack is strengthened by the addition of Aaliyah Alleyne, Shakera Selman, and Taylor.

Mithali Raj’s team suffered a crushing defeat in their most recent match against New Zealand Women. They fell 62 runs short of meeting the game’s requirements with both the bat and the ball. Their opponents come into this game with a lot of confidence, and Raj would like to see her team come back strong.
As the West Indies bowling attack has looked good, Smriti Mandhana and Yastika Bhatia will need to score runs at the top. With Deepti Sharma and Richa Ghosh in the middle order, Raj must score runs at a faster rate. Harmanpreet Kaur performed admirably in the previous game, and she will have to play a strong hand alongside Sneha Rana and Pooja Vastrakar, both of whom have scored runs in the tournament.
In the previous game, Jhulan Goswami bowled well. Meghna Singh and Rajeshwari Gayakwad, who failed to apply pressure against the Kiwi batters, would need to bowl well. Pooja Vastrakar comes into this game with a solid performance, and she will have to perform well in the middle overs with Sneha Rana and Deepti Sharma.

Pitch and Weather Conditions
Seddon Park in Hamilton is a typical New Zealand wicket with surface assistance for fast bowlers. Batters do well as well because the ball comes onto the bat nicely and the bounce and pace on the surface are true. Spinners don’t get much help from the track and must rely on their variations.
On March 12, we expect to see unusual clouds over Hamilton. The wicket is expected to play well, with the ball landing nicely on the bat and allowing batters to score runs. In these conditions, bowlers have struggled. The team batting first would need to score at least 260 runs.
