India’s vice-captain was the top scorer in her last match against New Zealand as she muscled 71 runs off 63 balls. She seems to have regained her lost international touch. Apart from her batting, she can offer occasional off spin. She is a brilliant outfielder too.

This right arm medium fast bowler of West Indies has been exceptional with the new ball. She has opened the bowling in both the matches of the World Cup so far and picked up six wickets. She is a genuine wicket-taker.

Pitch

Two matches of this ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup have been played here so far. Teams batting first have won both the matches. It is a good batting wicket with some assistance for the bowlers, provided they pitch in the right areas on a consistent basis. The outfield is quick and the ground is relatively smaller. A lot of boundaries and singles are expected.

Weather

The weather is expected to be mostly sunny and then areas of low clouds forming. The average temperature will be around 28 degrees Celsius, with just two percent chance of precipitation and 47 percent cloud cover. The wind will blow from the south-southwest.

Fantasy playing XI
