The 14th match in the Women’s World Cup will bring a clash between table topper and the side, which has already surprised a couple of teams. Unbeaten Australia Women have secured the pole position in the points table by ensuring a close win against England. The side registered comprehensive victories in their following two tasks against Pakistan and hosts New Zealand. While West Indies kicked off their WC campaign in style by defeating hosts New Zealand and then defending champions England. However, they got a reality check against mighty Indians who got their campaign back on track.
Meg Lanning-led side was at their best against hosts New Zealand Women. E Perry’s 68, Tahlia McGrath’s 57 and blistering 48 in 18 ball knock from Ashleigh Gardner helped the side post a competitive total of 269-8 in 50 overs. Australia provides a great set of batters at top-order and in the middle-order for the fantasy team.
R Haynes and Healy are the two most trustworthy batters in the group. While all-around performances from Ellyse Perry and Ashleigh Gardner thumped hosts in a high-stake game. After making valuable contributions with the bat, Perry picked one wicket, while Gardner clinched two-crucial wickets in the 2nd innings.
West Indies Women:
Hayley Matthews has been a top-run getter for the side and has picked some crucial wickets as well. 119, 45 and 43 have been the reading of her batting scorecard, while she clinched two crucial wickets in her first two games and dismissed Deepti Sharma in a game against India.
Not just that, she was also involved in inflicting Richa Ghosh’s wicket by running her out. Mathews is the most valuable player from West Indies Women and should be a mandatory pick in the fantasy team. Deandra Dottin and Chedean Nation are the other two batters who can be trusted for valuable fantasy points.
