Date and Day- 19 September 2019, Thursday.
Match 3 – Australia Women v/s West Indies Women.
Time – 4:30 AM IST.
Venue – Kensington Oval, Bridgetown (Barbados)
Yet another one-sided game ensured that the Australian team took 2-0 lead in the Series and will be taking home both the trophies. West Indies women’s team has just not been able to create any chances against the strong Australian unit. Meg Lanning won the toss and decided to bowl first and her bowlers made sure that West Indies women couldn’t get to good score restricting them to a total of 97 runs from their 20 overs.
Australian Women in their reply to West Indies score of 97 runs chase down the target with 33 balls to spare. Alyssa Healy scored an unbeaten 58 from just 48 deliveries to see her team through to victory. With the series already won Australian women could try experimenting with their playing lineup. West Indies have been disappointing overall in the field and would most likely be whitewashed in their home conditions. The Indian betting websites are clearly putting their money on Australia Women, who are just unstoppable now. Captain Meg Lanning and Alyssa Healy have dominated the series so far. But everything can still change as the West Indies are an amazing team full of surprises.
West Indies Skipper Stafanie Taylor will be playing her 100th T20I match tonight as her side face Australia in the 3rd and final T20I game. On one hand, Australia will aim to stay invincible and go home unbeaten, on the other, Windies will aim to gift a victory to their skipper and make this feat even memorable.
