Day and date: 21st November 2019
Match 5: India Women v West Indies Women
Time: 3:30 am IST
Venue: Providence Stadium, Guyana
The last game between the two teams was a reduced one, of 9 overs per side due to rain. India’s women batted first putting up a target of 51 runs for West Indies to chase, losing 7 wickets. Hayley Matthews from her side was the star performer of the match, taking wickets of India’s top 3 batters – Shafali, Jemimah and Veda, all going in vain as the West Indian batters failed to chase the target and crumbled at 45 runs in 9 overs, losing 5 wickets. Hayley won the player of the match award for her 3-wicket haul.
The 5th T20I game will be the final one between these two teams. West Indies will try to not make this a clean sweep for India and have at least one win in their pocket. While their bowling has been decent, the batting unit needs to step up. India just has to continue the way they’ve been playing all through the series.
Weather and Pitch Report:
Temperature is expected to be between 26 to 28 degrees Celsius and 96% cloud cover is expected. There are chances of precipitation and rain may cause another reduced game.
The pitch again is expected to be a slow track and might further slow-down as the game moves ahead. This may prove to be advantageous to the team that bats first.
Head to Head:
India have won all of the last 4 T20I games in a row against the West Indies and have the upper hand, as well as momentum.
Played – 4 India – 4 West Indies – 0
