Australia Women will win

West Indies Women – Australia Women Match Prediction | 17-09-2019 19:00

West Indies Women have won four, lost two and tied one out of the seven T20 internationals they have played this year. They played their last T20I series more than a couple of months ago in England where they lost 0-1 against the hosts in a three-match series. Prior to that, however, the Windies beat Pakistan 2-1 in Pakistan and swept the Irish 3-0 on their tour of Ireland.

The ball beat the outside edge often, and when it did hit the bat, it found a fielder. When West Indies came to bat in the second ODI, it seemed like a different wicket altogether. To put things into perspective, Australia proved the fact that, even on a batting-friendly wicket, you can reap the rewards if you bowl in the right channel and according to the field.

Having said that, they will need to be at their best if they are to beat the tourists who are the number one T20 side in the world. Australia have been brilliant on this tour so far and we expect them to continue their winning run. Australia outplayed the Windies in the preceding one-day international series and they were never really pushed in any of the three games. The home team, however, looks a much better outfit when it comes to twenty-over cricket and one can expect Stafanie Taylor and company to give the Aussies a run for their money in this format of the game.

They never looked confident in the middle, which was apparent with their shot selection, as they found half of their side back in the hut even before the powerplay got over. Stephanie Taylor, with a brilliant knock, somehow managed to take them to a respectable total, which, however, didn't eventually prove to be enough. West Indies' effort with the bat was remarkably similar to how they did in the ODI series.

Considering how they were doing at the half-way stage, it was surprising to see them not getting bowled out. In reply, the hosts never looked to even challenge the Australian total, let alone pulling the chase off. The hosts have clearly disappointed their fans in the first two matches and it will certainly be a tough ask for them to bounce back and win the final ODI of the series. They eventually finished with just 157 runs on the board in the allotted 50 overs.

They have won each of their previous five T20I series including the ICC Women's World T20 held in the West Indies last year in November. Their most recent T20I assignment came in July during their tour of England where they beat the home team 2-1 in a series of three matches. Australia Women have been on a roll in the game's shortest format. The Aussies have played 20 matches since last year and have faced defeats on just three occasions.

Live telecast of the match is scheduled to begin at 7 PM local time. After their flawless performance in the ODIs, Australia will now look to continue their dominance in the twenty-over format as the two teams prepare to take on each other in the three-match T20 international series. The first T20I will be played on September 14 at the Kensington Oval in Bridgetown, Barbados.

They'll be up against Australian Women for the second time in this T20I series on 16th September at Kensington Oval, Barbados. The change in format didn't alter the fortunes of the hosts in the ongoing Australia Women's tour of West Indies as West Indies Women crumbled to their fourth defeat of the tour. With just two T20s remaining in the series, they will be desperate to put up a good show and win at least one of those two fixtures. Having already lost the ODI series 3-0, this will be the last chance for the West Indies to keep the series alive. Australia, however, will be looking to seal the series and move a step closer to completing yet another whitewash on this tour.

Pacer Shamilia Connell and off-spinner Hayley Matthews are likely to be given the new balls in the powerplay. The Windies will probably open their batting with Hayley Matthews and Britney Cooper. West Indies have no further injury issues going into this first T20 international. Stafanie Taylor will continue to lead the team and bat in the middle-order along with Chedean Nation and Natasha McLean.


Earlier with the ball, Australians were super-effective in the powerplay overs as they dismissed half of the West Indies' side without too many runs on the board. Overall, Australian women have been miles ahead of West Indies as far as the performance of the two sides in this tour is concerned and we might see them posting a familiar result in the upcoming match as well. Even though they had a bit of trouble in dismissing the tail, which took Windies to a manageable total, they wouldn't be too concerned about it.

Australian Women's team have backed up their superb win over England with a couple of fabulous win over West Indies, their first two ever at West Indies' soil. Having said that, the Aussies will be looking to win this game to complete their first white-wash at the Caribbean Islands whereas the hosts will be looking to redeem something back from this fixture. With series already done and dusted, there is not much left at stake for both the sides. West Indies, on the other hand, have appeared to be just a mere shadow of themselves and are likely to find bouncing back from here a little tough. With a scintillating win over England in Ashes, it's not just the Australian Men's team that is looking in a rampaging mood at the moment.

Australians included two new faces for this West Indies' series and with series already won, we are likely to see them both feature in the upcoming fixture. Since the last two years, Elysse Perry has been wonderful for the Australians and hence it proved in the previous match. However, we expect the Australians to still retain their core and experiment in the quick-bowling department a change in the top-order. She continues to be a vital cog for their lineup and will be a key player in Tuesday's fixture.

Stafanie Taylor and her troops got pulverized by the Aussies in the three-match one-day international series. West Indies Women have simply been no match for the visitors so far. After crashing to a massive 178-run loss in the opening ODI, the Windies slumped to another huge defeat in the second match before going down in the third and final ODI to suffer an embarrassing series sweep. Australia Women have clearly been the superior side on this tour.
