Match Details:

The 4th game of the 5-match T20I series between West Indies Women and India Women will be hosted by the Providence Stadium in Guyana.

The match starts at 2:00 PM local time (6:00 PM GMT) (11:30 PM IST).

Preview for Dream11 Fantasy

The fourth T20I between India Women and West Indies Women is scheduled on Sunday with the tourists eyeing a clean sweep in Guyana. The script for the previous two games has been similar with India restricting the run-scoring and chasing it in a canter courtesy of their formidable top order.

Without the services of their captain, Stafanie Taylor, West Indies hasn’t looked anywhere near their best with none of the batters showing any intent. With only pride left to play for in this game, better performances are expected from Hayley Matthews and co although India is firm favourites to rack up another win.

Weather Condition/Report:

Another clear day is on offer in Guyana with the temperature hovering around 29 degrees celsius. Although a few clouds should make an appearance during the match, there isn’t much chance of rainfall. The humidity of 73% is expected according to AccuWeather and should increase as the game progresses.

Pitch Condition/Report:

As seen in the previous game, the pitch isn’t ideal for batting with a lot of turn on offer for the spinners. With the pitch bound to slow down during the course of the game, either side would prefer batting first and setting a competitive target on the board to defend.

Average first innings score: 134 (19 T20Is (including Men’s and Women’s) played at the venue)

Record of chasing teams: Won – 8; Lost 10

Injury and Availability News:

Stafanie Taylor is ruled out of the series

Probable Playing XIs for Dream11 Fantasy

West Indies Women:

Hayley Matthews, Natasha McLean, Shemaine Campbelle (WK), Chedean Nation, Kyshona Knight, Stacy-Ann King,  Chinelle Henry, Sheneta Grimmond, Afy Fletcher, Anisa Mohammed (C), Shakera Selman

Bench: Shabika Gajnabi, Cherry Ann-Fraser

India Women:

Shafali Verma, Smriti Mandhana, Jemimah Rodrigues, Harmanpreet Kaur (C), Veda Krishnamurthy, Taniya Bhatia (WK), Deepti Sharma, Anuja Patil, Arundhati Reddy, Poonam Yadav, Radha Yadav.

Bench: Shikha Pandey, Mansi Joshi, Pooja Vastrakar, Harleen Deol.

Top Picks:

Smriti Mandhana has been in good form since her return with a fifty in each format against the West Indies. Although she couldn’t score many runs in the previous game, Mandhana is well and truly capable of a big performance at the top of the order. Likewise, Deepti Sharma’s tally of seven wickets so far is the highest among the Indians in this series. With Deepti doubling up as an allrounder as well, she is a worth-while selection in the Dream11 Fantasy team.

West Indies is heavily reliant on Hayley Matthews in the absence of Stafanie Taylor. Although Hayley did pick two wickets in the previous game, much is expected from her as the batter with the hosts struggling against the spin threat of India.

Expert Advice:

If India was to bowl first, picking four or more India bowling options should be a viable ploy with the West Indies not being able to score freely against them in the previous games. To further back this up, picking only Smriti Mandhana and Shafali Verma with the possible option of Kaur should also increase your chances of a win.

India are likely to make changes to their playing XI having won the series already. Look out for the playing XIs until the last moment before finalising your Dream11 Fantasy team.
