It's been a contrasting story in the two groups of ICC Women's World T20. While things are pretty clear in Group B, Group A is still wide open. Barring Bangladesh, all four teams are still very much in contention for the two semifinal spots. The upcoming contest between Sri Lanka and West Indies will either makes things clearer or further complicate the situation. The match is set to be played at St Lucia on 17th October, the venue which so far has been notorious for inclement weather conditions.
West Indies, so far, have been brilliant in the competition so far having beaten Bangladesh and South Africa. They currently sit at the top of the table with two wins in as many matches. A win here will ascertain their place in the semifinals thereby making it difficult for Sri Lanka to qualify.
It was a fantastic bowling effort from the hosts after their batting struggled to put even a competitive total on the board. Batting first, West Indies somehow managed to cross the 100-run mark and eventually ended up on 107. Defending such a low score never looked probable and after the start, South Africa had with 48 runs on the board for the loss of just one wicket, the task looked impossible.
It was just then Stephanie Taylor produced the best effort of her career as she sent four batsmen packing and gave away just 12 runs. As much important was the contribution from Kycia Knight as she made a helped Windies recover from a poor start of 29-4 with her patient 32.

Unlike West Indies, it hasn't been all rosy for the Islanders. However, due to the virtue of inclement weather conditions, they find themselves well in contention for the knock-out spot and their chances will brighten if they're able to get past the hosts in this game.
Sri Lankans ended their drought with a much-needed win against Bangladesh despite posting a subpar total on a decent batting wicket. Batting first, Sri Lanka posted a total of just 97-runs on the board. Sashikala Siriwadena's 31-run knock helped them to achieve this total.
To top-of her contribution with the bat, she also picked up two important wickets to rock the Asian champions. Sri Lanka's decision to hold back their skipper, Chamari Athapaththu, as Sri Lanka could not get off to a flying start in the powerplay, the best time to bat in the match.

Although Sri Lanka managed to draw out a victory in their last match, it was a rather poor effort from them, both strategically and on the field. West Indies, on the other hand, did particularly well with the ball and were alright with the strategy. Both the teams are coming into the match with a win behind them and will be confident. However, West Indies are playing at home and are a better team on paper and are favorites to emerge as winners in the upcoming fixture.
