West Indies set target of 184 runs for India

India vs West Indies Womens World Cup Ind vs WI Mithali Raj Harmanpreet Kaur Cricket Indian Express

India could have been in a spot of bother at 33 for 2 but with a seasoned campaigner like Mithali at the other end, Mandhana went for her shots without much pressure. Going into their second game against West Indies, captain Mithali Raj, said "We still have six more games in the group stage, so I just hope the girls continue this form". The century - her 2nd in ODIs, came when she charged down the track to loft Stafanie Taylor inside out.

The Indian eves are all prepared to take on the brilliant yet erratic West Indies on County Ground, Taunton, on Thursday.

For West Indies, Stefanie Taylor had figures of 1 for 24. The top scorer for India was Smriti Mandhana who made 106 not out off 108 balls while opening the batting. Mithali Raj opted to field and West Indies were comfortably placed at 69 for one in the 19th over before things fell apart and the current World T20 champions were tottering at 91 for 6.

For India, Deepti Sharma, Poonam Yadav and Harmanpreet Kaur claimed two wickets each.

However, opener Hayley Mathews' 7 fours that scored 43 runs had a warning signal for the Indian squad, but her early wicket fall took the momentarily win away from Indies.

Historically, Indian wins are dependent on caught-behinds and stumpings in which Anju Jain holds a record of 31 dismissals that includes 17 stumps and 14 catches.

Mandhana carried on from where she left off against England, bettering her 72-ball 90 with a second ODI century and a first in the World Cup.

While no one in the world can world can justify that why a pace bowler with the class of Mohammad Shami is roaming with the team like a tourist in those conditions.
