Both West Indies and South Africa stand in contention for a place in the semifinals of the 2022 ICC Women’s World Cup. South Africa have been phenomenal so far, having lost only one game out of five. Sune Luus and Co. are now left to play West Indies and India in their last two league games respectively. West Indies, on the other hand, only have one game left before the knockouts begin. Although South Africa look in a strong position to cement a spot in the semis, West Indies can spoil their party.
