ausw vs indw Match Prediction & Analysis

Australia Women have taken an unassailable 1-0 lead winning the 2nd game in the 3-match series by 4 wickets after the first game was washed away by rains. It was an all-round show from the hosts as they restricted Indians to a small total after inviting them to bat and chased down the score comfortably in the end after initial hiccups. 

Australia Women have dominated in this format of the game for the last few years and come here with eight wins in their last ten games. The side has a powerful batting line-up and good knowledge of the conditions, and this would offer them an edge in the game. Indians would have a tough battle and it would be interesting to see if the side can stand up to the challenge in this game.

India Women Preview

Harmanpreet Kaur would want her girls to deliver the goods in this series saving game. They batted poorly in the last game and the skipper would like her players to take inspiration from the good show they had put up in the first game of the series. It would be a tough battle for the side and test their character. 

Smriti Mandhana and Shafali Verma have failed to deliver in the last two innings and the side would expect a good start from them in this game. Jemimah Rodrigues has been in good form, and she would look to set up partnerships with Kaur and Yastika Bhatia. Down the order, Richa Ghosh, Deepti Sharma and Pooja Vastrakar will look to do well in this game. 

The side would need tight spells with the new ball from Shikha Pandey and Renuka Singh as their opponents have a very strong batting line-up. Rajeshwari Gayakwad would take confidence after her good show in the last game. The side would also like to see a good show from the likes of Kaur, Deepti Sharma, and Vastrakar

Weather Conditions

Queensland would see a bright and sunny day on October 10, and the batting conditions are expected to be good. There is some assistance for the bowlers early on in this surface, but batters do well once settled. The side batting first would need 140 runs on the board to feel confident.

Venue Details

Carrara Oval, Queensland offers early assistance to the fast bowlers, but batters have also done well once they get their eyes set into this wicket. Spinners generally struggled here as there isn’t much on the surface for them and smaller dimensions of the ground adds to their challenge.

Toss: To Bowl

In the past, we have seen this surface offering assistance to the bowlers early on in the game and the conditions ease as the game progresses. Both the captains would have this in their mind at the toss and the one winning it should have little hesitation in opting to bowl first in the game.

AUSW vs INDW Winning Prediction

India Women would be under pressure to deliver in this game after their poor show in the last game. They have fought well on this tour and would like to end it on a high by levelling the series. The side must deliver well as a unit to win this game. Australia Women have momentum on their side and good knowledge of the conditions, and this would make them favorites to win the game.
