Barbados Women won the toss and elected to bat first, putting India Women in a commanding position. They were able to get rid of Smriti Mandhana with the ball, but they allowed critical partnerships to slip through their fingers cost them the game.
The Indian team’s two best results came from Shafali Verma with a 43 and Jemimah Rodrigues with a half-ton. Deepti Sharma’s cameo is a must-not-forget role. Her strike sent India Women past the 160-run barrier for the first time.
Renuka Singh’s dismissal of Deandra Dottin in the first over set the tone for the rest of the game for India Women. After then, she never looked back and went on to annihilate the Barbados Women’s World Cup team. As a result, she was able to post impressive statistics of 4 for 10 in just 4 overs during her time.
Five of Harmanpreet Kaur’s eight bowlers took wickets in the match. Barbados Women’s batters were never given a chance to settle in and form relationships. That they were able to achieve this in a game where it was either win or die tells much about their team.
Barbados Women’s batting has been atrocious once again. In spite of the daunting task ahead of them, they came out to bat without any purpose. Deandra Dottin was escorted back to the hut from the very beginning of the battle.
Despite a few nice shots, Hayley Matthews was unable to separate herself from her companion. At the end of the Powerplay, Barbados Women were reeling at 20 for 4 with the wickets falling at an alarming rate! Trishan Holder and Alisa Scantlebury did manage to hang in there, but they, too, succumbed to their wounds. Only two of their players had a batting average of more than ten.
That tells you all you need to know about their batting performance. Barbados Women had a rough day at the office today!
