Recent Match Report – IND Women vs Barbados Wmn 10th Match, Group A 2022

Toss Barbados chose to bowl vs India

Hayley Matthews called correctly as Barbados elected to bowl first against India in a knockout game at CWG 2022. The winner of this Group A clash will join Australia, England and New Zealand in the semi-finals.
India made two changes, with Pooja Vastrakar and Taniya Bhatia coming in for their first games of the competition. This meant time on the sidelines for S Meghana and Yastika Bhatia.

Vastrakar, who only arrived in Birmingham two days earlier following a recovery from covid, offers a handy seam option and some lower order firepower with the bat, thereby lending better balance to the side. Taniya’s inclusion, meanwhile, pointed to the team management having shelved the idea of having a makeshift wicketkeeper for now.

Barbados brought in 21-year-old offspinner Shaunte Carrington in place of legspinner Keila Elliott in the XI that has as many as seven members who are part of the West Indies squad.

India Playing XI: Smriti Mandhana, Shafali Verma, Jemimah Rodrigues, Harmanpreet Kaur (capt), Pooja Vastrakar, Taniya Bhatia (wk), Deepti Sharma, Sneh Rana, Meghna Singh, Renuka Singh

Barbados Playing XI: Deandra Dottin, Hayley Matthews (capt), Kycia Knight (wk), Kyshona Knight, Aaliyah Alleyne, Trishan Holder, Alisa Scantlebury, Shakera Selman, Shaunte Carrington, Shamilia Connell, Shanika Bruce
