About the Match

ICC Women's World Cup is already alive and kicking and is rendered wide open with India's win over the hosts England. As far as history is concerned, Australia has been the most dominant side in the World Cup - in Women's Cricket too. Australia is set to take on West Indies in their opening encounter on Monday, 26th June. The match will be played at Taunton which has been a batting paradise strip. As it happened in India - England game, we might well be in for another high-scoring encounter.

Australia

Australians have been phenomenal building up to the competition. They are ranked No. 1 in ICC World rankings in Women Cricket and have certainly played like that in the warmups. They won both of their warmups with considerable ease beating South Africa and Pakistan with a thumping win. Despite the underperforming top-three against South Africa in the first warm-up, Australia managed to post a strong total of 324 which was eventually defended with considerable ease. Against Pakistan, bowlers made the task super-easy as Jess Jonassen and Sarah Aley dismantled their batting lineup for a meager 156-runs. The batters then cleared off the deficit to achieve the win in just over 23-Overs. Australia is all about aggression coupled with balance. They are the best-balanced team of the competition and with players like Meg Lanning and Elysse Perry. West Indies would have to be at their cent percent if they want to topple the numero uno side in World Women's Cricket.

West Indies

West Indies will recall their win in the World T20 final for inspiration when they toppled this Australian side to lift the title. The World No. 5 side is known to cause upsets and are definitely capable of doing it yet again. West Indies would have to improve leaps and bounds as compared to how they played in the Warm-up matches. Against Pakistan, West Indies scored well on a track which had some assistance for bowlers. They, however, failed to defend the target of 247 runs and Pakistan won by 5 wickets. In the second Warm-up, they bogged down to South African attack and folded-out for just 63 runs. Stefanie Taylor's performance will be key against Australia. Her consistency, however, has been under the scanner. Overall, West Indies could really hamper the chances of any team on their day. They have the talent, but lack experience with as many as four players set to make their International debut from their playing eleven. They'd have to play out of their skins so as to beat a strong team like Australia in their upcoming encounter.

Our Prediction

On paper, the teams are a lot different, and so is the difference between their recent results. While Australia have blazed past their opponents in every game they've played building up to the competition whereas it's been exactly opposite for the Windies. Going by the form and team-on-paper, Australians look to be stronger of the two sides and are clear favorites to win this encounter
