The Women’s T20 World Cup 2023 is in for another big-ticket match-up as India will take on West Indies at the Newlands, Cape Town. The Women in Blue registered a thrilling seven-wicket win against arch-rivals Pakistan. Whereas the Windies succumbed to a superior England side in a seven-wicket loss.
But before the two teams go head-to-head for the game, let's look at the picture painted by numbers and statistics and who they depict could be the winner.
The Indian team looks like the favourites to clinch a win in this Women’s T20 World Cup game. After the first games of both teams, Women in Blue look like a complete and more well-rounded squad despite their struggles in the bowling department.
But the Indian team could get a massive boost with a likely return of Smriti Mandhana, who missed the opening game. On the other hand, West Indies had a poor outing against England as they were outperformed in each department. Hence, India has the upper hand in this fixture.
