These are still early days in the Women's World T20 and the things are already beginning to take shape beautifully. Group A is nicely poised with a strong competition between India, Australia, and New Zealand. India are currently placed at the top of the ladder in their Group and the Kiwi women are right behind them. The upcoming match, which is to be played between New Zealand Women and India Women, is likely to govern the fate of these two sides in the tournament, and both are going to come in hard at each other. New Zealand Women and India Women are set to take on each other on 27th February, at Melbourne Cricket Ground, Melbourne. Both India and New Zealand are unbeaten so far in the tournament and unless its a washout, one of those two sides will no longer be unbeaten. The two sides have so far been the best sides in the group and we expect a fierce fight in this battle of supremacy. A cracker of a contest is certainly on the cards.
India Women came into the World Cup on the back of a reasonable run in the limited overs cricket. Right before the tournament started, India played against England and Australia in the same conditions, experience of which is certainly helping them here. In the triangular series, India registered a win each against Australia and England, and made it to the finals. They, however, could not go beyond the finals.
The start of the World Cup came as a breeze for the Indian Women. After a heart-breaking defeat against the Aussies, they bounced back with a terrific performance in their first match of the series. They crawled to score a total of 132, which didn't look enough, but their bowlers ensured it to be more than enough. Poonam Yadav and Shikha Pandey were spectacular as Indian Women defeated Australian Women.
They followed a similar template in the second match as well. They batted first on a slowish surface and got a reasonably good total. Shafali Verma and Jemimah Rodriques were the the pick of their batsmen as got India back into the game with a useful second-wicket partnership. India kept losing wickets at regular intervals, but useful contributions from RM Ghosh and Veda Krishnamurthy somehow pushed India to 142.
As was the case against the Aussies, India's bowlers proved to be little too hot to handle for the Bangladeshi batsmen. Shikha Pandey was once again superb at the top and at the death, but the match was once again set by Poonam Yadav. She bamboozled opposition's batsmen with her quality spin and returned with the excpetional figures of 3 for 18 in her four overs.

New Zealand have played only one match in the tournament so far and are comfortably placed at the second spot on the ladder. They are coming off a massive win against Sri Lanka Women in the first match, in which they looked down and out at one moment. It was story of two halves against Sri Lanka and they pulled things back in the second halves of both innings.
Bowling first, New Zealand were carted to all parts of the ground by Sri Lankan openers. Sri Lanka raced to fifty in no time, but New Zealand bowlers pulled things back in the second half. So good was New Zealand's performance with the ball in the middle and death overs that Sri Lanka slid from 60 for no-loss to 127 for 8. Lea Tahuhu, Hayley Jensen, Amelia Kerr, and Sophie Devine found themselves amongst the wickets in the process. Jensen was the pick of their bowlers as she picked up three wickets for only 16 runs.
Chasing the total of 127 should not have been tricky for the Kiwis, but superb bowling upfront by Sri Lankans made it look like one. Sophie Devine, however, stood like a wall at one end and denied Sri Lanka all the chances they created to get back in the game. Devine took it deep and then launched a counter-attacking assault, from which they could never recover. Sophie Devine top-scored for them with a 55-ball 75.
Sophie Devine, Rachel Priest, Suzie Bates, Maddy Green, Katey Martin, Amelia Kerr, Hayley Jensen, Anna Peterson, Leigh Kasperek, Lea Tahuhu, Rosemary Mair.
