Meanwhile, Ireland Women faltered against England Women in their opening fixture and then lost to Pakistan Women. Ahead of Ireland Women vs West Indies clash, let's understand which team has an edge over which one.

The Newlands surface is widely regarded as a spin-friendly pitch and with 142 being the average 1st inning score at this venue we can expect yet another close contest between bat and ball.

Team Analysis:

Ireland Women has failed miserably in both games as they were restricted to 105 in the opening fixture, followed by 95 against Pakistan. Orla Prendergast and Gaby Lewis will have a lot of responsibility in the game against West Indies as the duo has been scoring runs but still not enough to help the side win a game. However, a collective effort from others might make the day for Ireland.
