Cricket Match Preview:
The Women Cricket World Cup T20I is approaching its climax and still, every match is important. The battle between India Women and Australia Women holds a lot of importance for both cricket teams as it will have implications in deciding the semi-final lineups of the cricket world cup. The winner of this cricket match will end at the pole position of group B and shall take on the second-best team from the group A while the losing team will confront the leader of group A in the semi-final.
The Australia women cricket team have been on a rampage and have decimated every opponent that has come their way so far. They are unbeaten in the cricket tournament and have a fabulous net run rate. After defeating Pakistan and Ireland comfortably, they squared off against the neighbouring team in the last match. With Alyssa Healy’s 53, Australia posted 153/7 in the first innings and wrapped New Zealand women cricket team in just 120 runs to achieve a 33-run win. The victory also confirmed Australia’s berth in the cricket world cup semi-final.
The India women cricket team have been no less imposing. They are also on a dominating cricket win streak and have conquered all three opponents that have come their way. Captain Harmanpreet Kaur scored a century in the first cricket match and helped India gain a victory over the New Zealand cricket team. The India cricket team then annihilated Pakistan and Ireland sides to complete the trio of victories.
Both unbeaten teams are now set to face each other and only one is destined to emerge out of the cricket match as a winner. The winner will not only top the group rankings but will also have the momentum by its side, leading into the succeeding stage of the cricket tournament.
Cricket Match Information:
This is the last group match for both Australia women cricket team and India women cricket team and both have ensured their entry into the semi-finals. The winning team will finish as the leader of the group B and will take on the second-ranked side from group A. The losing side here will face the top-ranked side from group A.
Probable XI (Our Prediction):
Australia women have been very dominant in all three of their victories so far in the cricket tournament. Our prediction is they will go with the same playing eleven as their last cricket game against New Zealand women.
Here is our prediction of Australia Women’s playing XI:
- A Healy
- BL Mooney
- EA Perry
- Meg Lanning
- A Gardner
- EJ Villani
- RL Haynes
- S Molineux
- DM Kimmince
- G Wareham
- M Schutt
Probable XI (Our Prediction):
India women did make one change in the playing XI for the last cricket match against Ireland women as they replaced Arundhati Reddy with Mansi Joshi. Joshi was not too impressive versus Ireland women, and she is likely to be dropped once again.
Here is our prediction of India’s playing XI:
- Mithali Raj
- Smriti Mandhana
- Jemimah Rodrigues
- Harmanpreet Kaur
- Veda Krishnamurthy
- Taniya Bhatia
- Dayalan Hemalatha
- Deepti Sharma
- Radha Yadav
- Arundhati Reddy
- Poonam Yadav
Cricket Statistics and Prediction:
Alyssa Healy, the Australian wicketkeeper, is in a fabulous form and is the top-scorer of the cricket tournament with 153 runs from three matches. She has already scored two fifties in three matches and will be looking to extend the splendid run. Against the Indian cricket team, she will be a difficult proposition. Harmanpreet Kaur from India will be a worthy contender for top-scoring as well.
Cricket Match Conditions and Pitch:
Both teams have played all their cricket matches at this same venue in the tournament, so they know the conditions at the Providence Stadium, Guyana very well. Being a slow cricket pitch, this does not hold a feast of runs but it should be a good contest between bat and ball.
Australia women will begin the game as huge favourites. India women are not too behind as they have also been unbeaten in the tournament so far but the Australian cricket team are at peak. It should be an enthralling game of cricket, where India fight back hard but our prediction is of another Australian victory.
Top Batsman (Prediction):
Alyssa Healy (AUS) – 50+ runs
Top Bowler (Prediction):
M Schutt (AUS) – 2 or more wickets
Most Sixes (Prediction):
Harmanpreet Kaur (IND)
Australia Women – 1.35
India Women – 3.15
