While defending the target against the West Indies Women, Indian bowlers bowled brilliant spells. Deepti Sharma’s 2 wickets for 29 runs in 4 overs and Radha Yadav’s 1 wicket for 10 runs in 4 overs helped India Women to a comfortable 56-run victory over their opponents.

West Indies Women Team Batting and Bowling Performance
The team’s batting has been the main issue for this side over the last 12 months, and they have struggled in this competition as well. They have only passed 100 once in three matches and were held to 97-6 from 20 overs in the most recent match.
As the tri-nation series progressed, the bowling attack became less effective, taking five wickets, two wickets, and finally zero wickets in the final match. They will need to improve in this game before the Women’s T20 World Cup next month.
India Women Team Batting and Bowling Performance
When the rain arrived on Saturday, India was 4-0 from two overs, and the opening pair of Smriti Mandhana and Jemimah Rodrigues had worked hard. Having said that, the openers are excellent players, and we expect them to attack the West Indies Women’s bowlers early in the game.
Although Deepti Sharma has been very consistent and is never far from being India Women’s top bowler, we expect the faster bowlers to be the most dangerous on Monday due to the additional moisture in the wicket. Some of India Women’s part-time bowlers may also get some match practise.
West Indies Women vs India Women Toss Prediction
