Australia (AU-W) and the West Indies (WI-W) will lock their horns during the 14th match of the 2022 FIFA Women’s World Cup on Tuesday, March 15, at the Basin Reserve in Wellington.
Australia, led by Meg Lanning, has been an unstoppable force for the past four years. Apart from the defeat against India last year at home, the whole team has been in the best form.
The Aussies are currently unbeaten at the World Cup, with winning all three of their matches.
They are at the top of the table with an amazing net run of 1,626. They beat New Zealand’s Sophie Devine with 141 runs in their previous game on Sunday in Wellington.
After being introduced first, half a century since Elyse Perry and Beth Mooney helped Australis score 269.
Ashleigh Gardner, who returned from a ten-day quarantine after recovering from COVID-19, came back like thunder. She scored an 18-ball 48 unbeaten with the assistance of four four-ball and many six-ball shots.
Then she picked up two important sockets from Amy Satterthwaite and Lea Tahuhu. The nimble bowler Darcie Brown also picked up three wickets.
The White Ferns struggled in their chase and were beaten 128 in 30.2 rounds. New Zealand is in a precarious fourth place with a net run rate of -0.257.
West Indies, led by Stafanie Taylor, began their campaign on an impressive note. After beating hosts New Zealand and defending champions England, they will be brimming with confidence.
But a heavy loss to India in 155 games made them a reality check.
Smriti Mandhana and Harmanpreet Kaur scored tons and helped India post 317 runs across the board. The duo teamed up 184 times for the fourth game.
The West Indies have had an impressive start to their run as Dendra Dottin and Hayley Matthews placed over 100 for the opening match.
Dottin scored 62 runs of 46 balls by fourteen and one six before going out Sneh Rana. When she got out, the West Indies lost their wickets to a pile and was shot 162 in 40.3 overs.
Will West Indies Women (WI-W) beat Australia Women (AU-W)?
The West Indies beat Australia in just one of 13 games at the WODIs. The only victory came in the 2013 World Cup in India. In addition, the Australians dominated.
In the World Cups, Australia won 5/6 matches. Meg Lanning and Co. are the favorites to win the contest.
Guess: The Australian woman won the match.
