Day and date: 17th November 2019
Match 4: India Women v West Indies Women
Time: 11:00 pm (IST)
Venue: Providence Stadium, Guyana
The 3rd T20I game between the two teams was a low scoring one, with the West Indies making a mere 59 in 20 overs, at the loss of 9 wickets. No one could hang in on the field for a long time, with only 11 runs as the maximum runs, coming off the bats of both Chedean Nation (11 off 27) and Chinelle Henry (11 off 18). India chased down this target in just 16.4 overs, with the loss of 3 wickets. India’s consistent star-performers, Shafali Verma and Smriti Mandhana succumbed early this time but Jemimah Rodrigues came to the rescue, scoring an unbeaten 40 in 51 balls and winning it for the women in blue. She also won the player of the match award.
India have technically won the series and lead it 3-0 but West Indies would want to come back and not let India make this a clean sweep. India have had the advantage of a player or two always stepping up or building good partnerships – Shafali and Smriti in the first two games and Jemimah in the last one, and the Windies women need to do the same to achieve a victory in the 4th T20I.
Weather and Pitch Report:
The temperature prediction for today is that of around 25 degree Celsius with 96% cloud cover. There are chances of a thunderstorm. The Providence Stadium pitch is mostly a slow track and huge totals to be put on board are usually not be expected.
Head to Head:
India have won the last 3 T20I games in a row against the West Indies and have the upper hand, as well as momentum.
