Renuka Thakur picked up four as India made a mockery of Barbados, beating them by 100 runs to seal a semi-final spot in CWG 2022. Barbados, who were set a target of 163, were never quite in the game as Renuka picked up two in her very first over and then went onto pick two more in her next over to go top of wicket-taking charts. Barbados were never in chase as their loss remained a formality after ten overs. In the end, India won by a massive margin and sailed into last four.
Just one run coming off the final over, but it is too little, too late as India beat Barbados by a massive margin of 100 runs and they have now sealed the semis spot. Such a clinical performance. BAR 62/8(20)
And another WICKET! And this time the scalp goes to skipper Harmanpreet Kaur. That was an easy catch by Radha Yadav. They are now eight down as tail-ender Connell walks in. BAR 59/8(18)
And now this is the eighth bowler being used tonight with Shafali Verma bowling. And why not? As there is no urgency to win tonight as the run difference is just too much. BAR 56/7(16.3)
Now, Harmanpreet Kaur gets the ball and bowls some loopy deliveries. Also, induces an edge. Unfortunately, it didn’t carry. And the very next ball, she finds another edge and this time it is gone for FOUR. BAR 55/7(16)
WICKET! Edge and taken. And now that would be the seventh wicket. Meanwhile Radha Yadav gets into the act as he induces an edge and Deepti Sharma in the slips takes an easy catch. BAR 45/7 (14.1)
Meghna Singh is back into the attack and produces a ripper of a delivery. One must be wondering how did that not produce an edge there. What an outstanding assault by Renuka Thakur earlier today as she picked up four and now Meghna has one too. In the air and taken by Harmanpreet Kaur, great catch by the skipper and Trishan Holder goes for six. BAR 45/6(13.4)
Another over from the spinner and that would be Radha Yadav. First two balls were gives a lot of air and it seems to be working as she concedes a single and then almost had the batter in trouble off her third ball. BAR 42/5(12.4)
Sneh Rana back into the attack and she gives away just a single off his first three balls. All loopy deliveries and then comes the BOUNDARY. Beautiful placement by Scantlebury as she finds the gap thanks to some poor fielding. BAR 39/5(10.5)
Great bowling from Vastrakar so far. Bowling short and having the batter in trouble. Meanwhile Barbados in real trouble here as they are five down and looks set to be eliminated tonight itself. Another dot ball from the pacer as Indian fans now getting behind her. BAR 34/5(10)
Sneh Rana is into the attack and so far she has bowled really well. Giving the ball a lot of air only to clean up the stumps of Kyoshan…WICKET! Slow and loopy and the batter missing the line completely. This was a straight ball, no turn whatsoever. BAR 32/5(8.4)
Short ball and the batter somehow guides it down the third man. So, Vastrakar giving away just two in the first five balls only to give away a BOUNDARY off her final ball. Some runs coming from Barbados batters. BAR 31/4(8)
So, no fifer for Thakur as she bowls a dot ball. Nonetheless, great over from her. As Pooja Vastrakar gets the ball and concedes a single off her first two balls. BAR 25/4(7.2)
Thakur is back for her fourth over and almost had another one. Amazing figures for her 5/4 as she bowls full this time to the left-hander. Just a single. And a single off her third ball, excellent fielding at backward point by Deepti Sharma. BAR 22/4(6.3)
Oh, and another one. This one was a ripper of a ball and its Thakur again. The ball just went in after pitching and the batter making a fool of herself. And Renuka Thakur on fire here. FOURTH WICKET for her and India all over Barbados. BAR 19/4(5)
Thakur back into the attack and bowls a tight line only to concede a THREE off her first ball. Thanks to some poor fielding and we have WICKET. Another one for Thakur. She is now the top wicket taker in CWG 2022. Meanwhile Barbados in trouble. Bar 19/3(4.4)
And in comes the spinner as Deepti Sharma bowls an interesting line. Three singles before the batter pops a catch which means the ball is gripping. Nonetheless, next ball fetches Barbados a couple. BAR 16/2(4)
WICKET! In the air and taken by Shafali Verma at mid on. What a disappointment and that would be another wicket here in Edgbaston in no time. Renuka Singh continues to impress with her line. That would be her second wicket. Bar 10/2(2.2)
FOUR! Great shot from Matthews and she is off the mark with a BOUNDARY. India has placed an off side field and yet the batter scores. In-fact the bowler missed her line completely. Meanwhile another FOUR off the next ball. BAR 9/1(1.2)
Renuka Singh gets India the breakthrough. And it just took her two balls to deliver. Clean ball and the Barbados batter missed the line completely. Deandra Dottin gone without scoring. BAR 0/1(0.2)
Great batting Jemimah Rodriguez made sure that India manage to post a challenging total of 162/4 in a knockout game. The batter came in at three and despite India losing their top order, forged a solid fifty run stand with Deepti Sharma to help India push past 160 run barrier. Earler Shafali Varma gave India a great start even as Smriti Mandhana departed early. She alongside Rodriguez gave India a perfect platform as the duo shared a 50-run stand.
In a do-or-die encounter, both India Women and Barbados Women will clash on Wednesday, August 3 in the final group stage match of the Commonwealth Games 2022.
Edgbaston will be up on its feet for this fixture as only one of the two sides will go through the knockout stages.
India will be brimming with confidence after thumping arch-rivals Pakistan in a pretty one-sided affair. The Harmanpreet Kaur-led side will be looking to go all guns blazing against an inexperienced Barbados team. India’s bowling has been clinical so far as the likes of Rajeshwari Gaikwad and Renuka Singh have been exceptional with the ball.
In the last match, India’s batting was also on point as they easily chased down a modest total. Star batter Smriti Mandhana has been in sumptuous form and will be the danger woman for Barbados’ qualification hopes.
Pakistan Women were an easy opponent for Barbados but against the World champions Australia, they looked meek and inferior. Against a well-drilled Indian side, Hayley Matthews and company will have to play out of their skin to qualify for the knockouts.
Team India looks favorites to go through but the pressure of a crunch game can overwhelm even the greatest of sides. The team that holds the nerves till the end will emerge victorious on Wednesday.
