Match 7, County Ground, Taunton 29 June, 2019

Toss won by India Women (decided to bowl)

India Women beat West Indies Women by 7 wickets

Man of the Match: Smriti Mandhana



That's it! Mandhana finishes it with a boundary. Great batting from her, and India easily win the match by 7 wickets. That is two wins in two games for India, and they move to 4 points.


Mandhana reaches her ton with a boundary! Another superb performance by the Indian opener who has taken this tournament by storm, she might well be on her way to a second player of the match award!


Smriti edges closer to her ton after a couple of fours, she is batting confidently on 93 and India needs just 17 runs to win!


Mandhana seems to be cramping a bit, but nothing to worry as she is continuing at the moment.


WICKET!  Captain Mithali Raj departs, a rather innocuous looking delivery. Raj comes down the track, and its a full toss but she can't middle it, hitting it straight to Fletcher at mid off. She goes for 46.


Mandhana and Raj are now looking to finish it in a hurry, both finding boundaries now as they know that the team is in a comfortable position.


West Indies trying everything but the Indian batters not really being troubled here. Shows that this is a good batting pitch, and West Indies will be rather disappointed from their poor showing with the bat.


India looking well on route for a comfortable win here.. Good batting by the two experienced players. West Indies will need some quick wickets to get back in the game.


Mandhana reaches her 50, another half century for the Indian opener who has been in great form in the tournament so far!


Mandhana getting the boundaries as India edges closer to a 100, been a great innings from her so far!


Smriti Mandhana is looking fluent, and totally comfortable in this chase. Raj playing a mature hand as well. One big partnership is all that India needs here,


Mithali Raj has bought a certain calm with her to the proceedings, this is certainly the most important partnership for India with both batters in form


WICKET! Deepti Sharma departs, tries to go over the top against the spinner, completely misses the ball which clatters onto the middle stump. West Indies still in it!


After the early breakthrough, India have recovered well. They are on well course for an easy win here..


SIX! Mandhana gets the first maximum of the game, continuing her aggressive form. That was a good solid hit, pulling the short ball with authority. Seems West Indies have not seen the highlights of her previous innings, she can certainly play the short ball.


Mithali Raj is again reading a book as she waits for her turn to bat.. She is truly living up to the tag of being captain cool!


WICKET! Connell gets the early wicket! Much needed for West Indies, short ball and Raut tries to pull but comes off the bat and is taken behind the stumps by Aguilleira. Good catch by the wicket keeper!


Connell to start for West Indies, Mandhana and Raut open for India..


And a flurry of boundaries - three in a row means West Indies end on 183. 18 runs coming from the final over, a rather expensive one from Kaur, But India won't be too unhappy with this effort. West Indies would have been hoping for a bigger total. Can the bowlers step up and stop the Indian batters? We will be back with the chase!


Another high catch goes down and Kaur can't believe it, poor fielding from India. Went straight up in the air, and Ekta - running back - drops a simple catch,


150 comes up for the West Indies in the 48th over. It has been a rather timid batting performance from the T20 Champions..


WICKET! Daley departs, and Verma gets another stumping. Slowe one from Sharma and Daley misses the slog, Third stumping in the game for the Indian keeper


Daley is getting the shots away for West Indies. She needs to stay in if West Indies are to post a challenging score!


Daley is getting the shots away for West Indies. She needs to stay in if West Indies are to post a challenging score!


WICKET! Kaur gets her second wicket, Nation charges down the ground and goes for the slog hit. Completely misses the ball and Verma completes an easy stumping.


Nation and Daley trying their best to provide some respectability to the score here, the slower bowlers have been hard to put away, and West Indies will need to find some quick boundaries here now,


Bisht comes back into the attack, she has been impeccable with her line and length..conceded only 5 runs from 6 overs, with two maidens!


WICKET! Knight departs now, West Indies falling like nine pins here, Knight tries to go over the top, but can't clear mid off where Mandhana takes a simple catch.


WICKET! Dottin departs, and Poonam's wonderful spell continues. Another flighted delivery, Dottin tries to go over the top but holes out to Raut at long on.


Good to see Harmanpreet back, she has the ball now and doesn't look to be in pain..

Catch all the live action of India's second ICC Women's World Cup 2017 match of the group stage against West Indies in Taunton.


India skipper Mithali Raj has said that the Indian team will go into the match against West Indies high on confidence following their big win over hosts England in their Women's World Cup tournament opener last Saturday.

India put on 281 against England with the top three of Smriti Mandhana, Punam Raut and Mithali Raj all slamming half-centuries each. It was also the highest score that India have ever put on when batting first and Raj believes that will give her side plenty of confidence for the rest of the tournament.

"We won against the hosts in the World Cup when we have only four or five girls who have played in a World Cup before – for the rest, it was their first World Cup," said India captain Mithali Raj.

"So considering all those factors, it’s great that the team has done well but it’s only the first game.

"We still have six more games in the group stage, so I just hope the girls continue this form. All games are going to be very close and intense. I hope that the team really improves over the coming matches," added Mithali.


India: Mithali Raj (captain), Ekta Bisht, Rajeshwari Gayakwad, Jhulan Goswami, Mansi Joshi, Harmanpreet Kaur, Veda Krishnamurthy, Smriti Mandhana, Mona Meshram, Nuzhat Parween, Shikha Pandey, Punam Raut, Deepti Sharma, Sushma Verma and Poonam Yadav

West Indies: Stafanie Taylor (captain), Merissa Aguilleira, Reniece Boyce, Shamilia Connell, Shanel Daley, Deandra Dottin, Afy Fletcher, Qiana Joseph, Kyshona Knight, Hayley Matthews, Anisa Mohammed, Chedean Nation, Akeira Peters, Shakera Selman and Felicia Walters.
