ICC WOMEN’S WORLD CUP 2013: INDIA V/S WEST INDIES

Mumbai

Indian Women win by 105 runs

World Cup? Where?

8 ICC Women’s World Cups have been played since 1978, and it has been divided between only 3 teams- Australia (5), England (2) and New Zealand (1). England Women, who defeated New Zealand in a low-scoring final in the 2009 Final, are defending Champions- and find themselves in Group A with India, West Indies and Sri Lanka.

The first match of the 2013 ICC Women’s World Cup was played between India and West Indies– both dark horses, and the teams to watch during this tournament. The Indian Eves, led by Mithali Raj, made a strong start to their campaign at Mumbai with a superb all-around performance by Jhulan Goswami once again, as well as a record opening stand between Raut and Kamini- with the latter winning the Player of the match award for her well-paced maiden century.

Raut and Kamini do what Sehwag and Gambhir cannot.

A total of 284, though, was possible only due to Goswami and Kaur’s Turbo-blast after the 40th over- after the solid foundation set by the openers. Raj, the captain, demoted herself down the order- which turned out to be a masterstroke- given Goswami’s aggressive outlook. The West Indian women, speared on by an entertaining Dottin- who took 3 wickets and smashed 4 sixes in a quickfire 39- were in the game till she was dismissed. They were never in it after that at 5-84, and were eventually shot out for 179- thanks to some disciplined bowling by Sultana and Goswami.

This means that India have already put themselves in a good position to go through to the super 6 stage- having to win only one more game to be sure of qualification. Out of the 4 teams playing in each group (with Group B being the Group of Death- Australia, New Zealand, Pakistan and South Africa), 3 teams from each will advance to the super 6 stage- following which each team will play eachother once- carrying forward points from their groups.The top 2 from the Super 6 stage will then do battle in the final- an interesting setup foolproof enough to eliminate upsets (2007 Men’s World Cup) and making sure that the best teams go through towards the business end of the tournament.

With no subcontinent team winning the World Cup so far, India have their best chance of pulling off a coup following the 2011 World Cup win at HOME by their male counterparts- but Australia and England are still the most well-oiled setups, and they’re the teams to beat once again this year.

Still, the West Indian women, as unpredictable as the men’s team, are going to be the most dangerous team during this tournament- especially after a weak start to their campaign.
