ICC Women’s World Cup: Indian batters need to raise their game against West Indies

India’s under-performing top-order will be keen to display way more intent to bring the team’s campaign back on track when it squares off against a dangerous West Indies in the third league game of the ICC Women’s World Cup here on Saturday.

Currently placed fifth after a demoralising 62-run loss to New Zealand, India would like to get back to winning ways as back-to-back defeat can cause loss in momentum, especially when they are playing one game after another on the bounce.

The likes of Smriti Mandhana, Mithali Raj, the young Yastika Bhatia and all-rounder Deepti Sharma were all criticised for not getting a move-on against New Zealand in India’s chase of 261 and despite Harmanpreet Kaur’s 62-ball-71, the team ended up being outplayed by 62 runs.

It is understood that Shafali Verma, despite her ‘blow hot, blow cold’ form, will be back in the playing eleven, and would be expected to lend pace to innings, something which Yastika Bhatia failed to do in the previous game.
