Today at 6:30 pm, the ninth match of the World Cup will be played in Group B between India & West Indies at Newlands Cape Town.
The Indians started this World Cup on a positive note, defeating Pakistan by 7 wickets, while West Indies, on the other hand, lost to England by 7 wickets in their very first match.
Another great news for India Women's Team is that India's explosive batsman Smriti Mandhana, who is out due to injury, will return to the team today.
As we overlooked, Indian Team has it’s high weightage over the West Indies. In the past matches played in between the two teams, out of total 20 matches, India has won 12. rest 8 matches were secured by West Indies.
The trouble for the Indian team is that their captain Harmanpreet Kaur has not crossed the score of 20 runs in a single match in the last 10 matches played so far in the World Cup. She scored only 16 runs against Pakistan in her last match in this World Cup. Today, there will be the eyes on Harmanpreet Kaur whether she would be able to improve her performance or not as she did not do well in her last 10 innings. Her improvement will result in good for herself as well as for the Team India.
Indian Team star, all-rounder Deepti Sharma also had her last match bad for her, giving away 39 runs in 4 overs. There will be a hope from Deepti Sharma as well to comeback in today’s match.
On the other hand, when we talk about the West Indies Women's Team, their opener batsman Hayley Matthews scored 42 runs in 32 balls while playing against England in the last match. She could also make it while playing against India today, as she is doing well in this World Cup.
By looking at these statistics, it is to be believed that today’s match will going to be really interesting.
The Newlands Cape Town is a batting friendly pitch with a first innings total average score of 149. Also, the spinner has proved to be very effective in the T20 World Cup matches being played here.
