IND W vs BAR W: India Women & Barbados Women will cross swords in their third & final game of the group stage of the Commonwealth Games 2022 at Edgbaston on August 3, Wednesday from 10.30 pm onwards. This will be a must-win fixture for both teams if they aim to continue their run in the Semi-finals.
IND vs BAR W: India
Harmanpreet Kaur-led India is on top form after registering their first win in their last fixture against arch-rivals Pakistan. Riding on the top knocks by Shafali Verma (16 off 9) & Smriti Mandhana (69*) India chased the meager target of 100 runs in 12 overs.
In today’s must-win fixture too Shafali & Smriti would be India’s biggest bet in the batting department while on the bowling front, Sneh Rana (2-15) & Radha Yadav (2-18) starred with the ball by scalping two wickets each. The duo of Sneh Rana & Radha Yadav would aim to continue their good run with the ball as reaching the Semi-finals is their ultimate goal.
Indian women are currently standing at the second position in Group A with 2 points from two matches & a win in today’s fixture will confirm their berth in the semi-finals of CWG 2022.
IND W vs BAR W: Barbados Women
Facing India are underdogs Barbados Women who are coming into this match after facing a humiliating nine-wicket defeat over Australia in their previous clash. They were wrapped up for a meager total of 64. In reply, Australia Women took just 8.1 overs to complete their chase. Barbados have won just one out of two matches like India but their net run-rate is low then India i.e -1.794. With a low net run rate, India is occupying the third spot on the list. A victory will help them to secure a position in the semi-finals, however, they have to beat India by a huge margin.
For the unversed, all-rounder Deandra Dottin has retired from West Indies on Monday & whether she will continue her career with Barbados is still unclear.
India women will take the confidence from their previous win to win the crucial fixture while Barbados too would aim to turn the tides, which team will succeed is what time will say. With both the teams aiming for a semi-final spot expect a crackling contest today on the grounds of Edgbaston.
