India Women started their ICC Women's T20 World Cup 2023 campaign with a thrilling win against arch-rivals Pakistan. They are now 2nd in Group B, just below England Women, with a net run rate of +0.497. India’s next assignment is against West Indies Women on February 15 at Newlands. West Indies are having a torrid time in T20Is recently and will find it tough against a strong Indian team.
India Women couldn’t have asked for a better start to their 2023 T20 World Cup journey. They recorded the second-highest chase in women’s T20 Word Cup history by polishing off a challenging target of 150 with exactly one over to spare. The unbroken 58-run stand between Jemimah Rodrigues (53* off 38 balls) and Richa Ghosh (31* off 20 balls) proved to be the clincher.
Jemimah had gone through a lean phase before this knock, and her performance will greatly please the management. Meanwhile, the big-hitting Richa continues to impress, and her cameos down the order will be crucial for the team in the tournament. Opener Smriti Mandhana is expected to be back for this game after missing out on the first one due to injury. That would further bolster the Indian batting.
India’s bowling was a little wayward in the last half of the first innings in the match against Pakistan, where they couldn’t stem the flow of runs. Deepti Sharma conceded 39 runs in her 4 overs while picking up one wicket. However, the experienced off-spinner will remain India’s most important bowler in this tournament. Left-arm spinner Radha Yadav had an excellent game, taking 2-21 from 4 overs.

West Indies Women are having a horrible run in T20Is at the moment, having lost their last 5 games in a row. They lost their first game of the 2023 T20 World Cup to England Women by 7 wickets after posting a moderate 135-7 on the board.
West Indies Women’s biggest issue is their batting. Barring skipper Hayley Matthews (241 runs in the last 10 matches at an average of 26.77 and a strike rate of 105.7) and middle-order batter Shemaine Campbelle (135 runs in her last 10 games at an average of 15 and a strike rate of 80.35), none of the others have really clicked. Even in the match against England, Matthews top-scored with an attractive 42 off 32 balls while Campbelle made 34 off 37 runs. The Windies women desperately need some runs from the like of Shabika Gajnabi, Chinelle Henry, and Chedean Nation.
Their bowling hasn’t been too impressive either. Chinelle Henry and Shamilia Connell are leaking runs at the start, and it’s again been up to Hayley Matthew to stem the flow with her off-breaks. Leg-spinner Afy Fletcher has done decently in recent times but has her task cut out against India's batters who are solid players of spin.

The deck at Newlands Stadium is generally great seam bowlers with some assistance for the spinners. Batters will have to be wary of the moving ball in the first six overs. Once the pitch settles down a little, however, batting becomes easier as we saw in the matches between India Women and Pakistan Women and Bangladesh Women and Sri Lanka Women.
The weather in Newlands during the game will be windy, and should hence help the seamers.
The average score batting first at Newlands in women’s T20Is is 134. The highest total posted at the venue is 166-4 by India Women. The team batting first in this match should look to set a target of around 150-160 runs.
Out of the 3 matches played at Newlands, Cape Town, in this World cup, 2 have been won by the side chasing. The team winning the toss is likely to field first.
India Women hold a 12-8 head-to-head lead over West Indies Women in T20Is. Additionally, they have won 5 straight T20Is against the West Indies Women. India Women have a balanced team with most bases covered. Their fielding has been a little sloppy, and they have had a tendency to lose wickets in clusters, but they would feel confident against this West Indian side. India’s spinners should be enough to keep the Windies' batters in check.
