The Indian women’s cricket team was badly hit by a 62-game losing streak by the New Zealand home team at their second ICC Women’s 2022 Cricket World Cup. After an easy victory in their first match against Pakistan’s biggest rival, India’s confidence was really high. but which would be greatly reduced after a huge loss. But what they face in front of them is nothing short of huge from the Caribbean. The West Indies women, India’s next opponents, defeated the two greats in New Zealand and England in their first two games.
Thus, Mithali Raja cannot blink an eye when he faces the West India team led by Stephanie Taylor in Seddon Park in Hamilton on March 12, 2022.
Hayley Matthews, Deandra Dottin and Anisa Mohammed: The Deadly Trio of the West Indies
The West Indies team managed to defend the results of 259 and 226 against New Zealand and England. In both of those games, the West Indies were on the verge of losing and moments of brilliance helped them win it. While in the first game Deandra Dotting defended six runs in the final overt, Anisa Mohammed managed to bounce two English strikers four ball apart to win the West Indies in the second game.
Hayley Matthews, on the other hand, made a huge contribution to her team in both games as she achieved a century and picked up two gates in the first game and then picked two gates and scored 45 runs against England as well. She was therefore a consistent player and could be a thorn in India’s side.
India cannot afford to lose this against the West Indies
In order for India to advance to the semi-finals of this World Cup, it had to win at least four games against Pakistan, Bangladesh, the West Indies and South Africa to advance to the semi-finals. Now that the West Indies have already won against New Zealand and England and are more than capable enough to beat Pakistan and Bangladesh, the competition is now wide open among all teams and therefore a defeat here could mean a safe place for the West Indies in the semi-finals and from now on great pressure on India not to lose even against heavyweights like England and Australia.
Report on playing in Seddon Park in India – Women – Women of the West Indies
The terrain at Seddon Park in Hamilton was good for hunting, although in the last game the Indians failed to drive him out. The World Championships bring with them pressure and therefore running on the board is always important. The West Indies itself is the best example of this. Therefore, India should look at the bat first after winning the throw. This would test the West Indies and would help India as its bowling has proven its worth in both games that women in blue have played so far. The field would most likely help the spinners in the second shift as well.
