India Women would begin their long tour of the Caribbean islands as they play hosts West Indies Women in the first of the 3-match ODI series at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, North Sound, Antigua.
India Women would start with confidence after they won a series against South Africa Women at home recently. West Indies Women are struggling for form at the moment and have lost their last eight games and this has increased pressure on the side. In the recent past India Women have enjoyed an upper hand over West Indies Women and have defeated them eight times in the last ten games between the two sides. The hosts will have to play out of their skins to defeat the strong Indian team in the game. With home advantage, they are likely to compete well in the series.

Stafanie Taylor would like to put behind the disappointments of the last few series as her side takes on a confident Indian side. With major changes have made in the team the skipper would be looking for a better show from her girls going into this game. A win will bring an end to their losing spree and that’s what the skipper would be aiming to do in the game. Britney Cooper and Natasha McLean will need to provide a good start to the side going into this game.
This is one area where the side has struggled in recent games. Kyshona Knight, Stafanie Taylor and Stacy-Ann King will need to steer the middle order. Sheneta Grimmond and Chinelle Henry with their hitting abilities will look to do well towards the end. The side would expect a good start with the ball from Sabika Gajnabi and Afy Fletcher. The inability to pick early wickets has cost them dearly in recent games. The side would also expect the likes of Anisa Mohammad, Stacy-Ann King and skipper Taylor to contain the run flow during the middle overs in the game.
Mitali Raj would be leading a confident team into the first game of the series. They have come here after having defeated a strong South Africa Women team at home. The conditions are different here and the skipper would be looking to make most out of the opportunity. Indian batting is looking strong at the moment with Jemimah Rodrigues and Smriti Mandhana opening the batting for the side. Mitali Raj, Harmanpreet Kaur and Deepti Sharma add strength to the middle order. Lower down the order Poonam Yadav and Punam Raut will look to accelerate the scoring for the side. Jhulan Goswami opening the bowling for the side lends an advantage to the India side and she would expect good support from Poonam Yadav. Ekta Bisth and Deepti Sharma have done well with the ball in the recent games and shall be looking to do the same in the first game of this tour.
There would be slight cloud cover at Antigua on November 01 but it isn’t likely to affect the game. The pitch is likely to be a flat surface as we have seen in most of the recent games that have been played at this venue. The bowlers would get some initial movement from the surface but it isn’t likely to bother the batters. The side batting first would target a score of around 270 runs.
Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, North Sound, Antigua is a great ground for batting and over the last few years we have seen several high scoring encounters as the pitch has become flatter and the outfield faster. Fast bowlers have done well at the venue and spinners also get their turn and bounce.
The pitch is expected to be a good one to bat on. In the recent games we have seen the ball coming on to the bat nicely. This would allow batters to hit through the line. The side winning the toss would like to bat first and use their spin attack when the pitch wears down towards the end.
It is going to be tough to ask for West Indies Women as they play India Women in the game. Their recent form doesn’t inspire much confidence and they would be up against a team that has been doing well this season. West Indies Women will need to constantly apply pressure on India’s strong batting line up and not allow Indian spinners to dominate them. Going into this game India Women would start favorites.
