Tournament favorites Australia Women would be taking on the West Indies Women in the 1st Semifinal of the ICC Women's World Cup 2022. Australia Women have played brilliantly right through the tournament winning all their games and the side looks in great form. West Indies Women have been lucky to qualify for this game after a string of failures in the latter half of the league stage.
Australia Women have had an incredible record against West Indies Women and have lost only once in the past against them. The side has lost just two games since the end of the last World Cup and dominated their opponents. It would take a lot of heart for West Indies Women to defeat them. However, there would be pressure on both sides and we expect to see a good contest here.
Meg Lanning’s side has been clinical right from the start of the tournament. They came in as pre-tournament favorites and the side has lived up to the expectations. They defeated Bangladesh Women convincingly by 5 wickets in the last game. Lanning would like her side to continue with its march and execute their plans as they have done since the first game.
Openers Alyssa Healy and Rachael Haynes have scored runs for the side and they would look to set up a good opening wicket stand in this game. Lanning has led from the front and the side would want her to anchor the innings in the middle order with Beth Mooney and Tahlia McGrath. With Ashleigh Gardner and Annabel Sutherland to follow the side has the strongest batting line-up in the world.
The side would like to see early wickets from Megan Schutt and Ellyse Perry as they have done so far. West Indies batting has looked in poor shape and the new ball bowlers would count their chances. Jess Jonassen and Gardner are good bowlers and they add to the side’s strength. Sutherland, Alana King, and McGrath complete a good attack for the side.

It was a lucky escape for Stafanie Taylor’s side as their last game against South Africa Women was washed away by rain. This enabled them to get the much-needed point and finish ahead of India and New Zealand on the points table. The side faces a tough challenge against the mighty Australians and they will need to excel in this game to qualify for the finals for the first time since 2013.
Haley Matthews has scored runs from the side and she along with Deandra Dottin shall aim to set up a good stand opening the batting. Taylor will have to lead from the front in the middle order and look to build partnerships with Kycia Knight and Shemaine Campbelle. Chinelle Henry and Chedean Nation are good finishers and they must contribute in this game for the side to win.
Matthews and Henry have to get the side early breakthroughs as Australian top order has been in terrific form in this tournament. The side would also need good spells from Afy Fletcher and Shakera Selman given the batting line-up they are up against. The side doesn’t have depth in the bowling and needs Dottin to deliver the goods on this big occasion.

The skies over Wellington would be slightly cloudy on March 30. Batting conditions are expected to be good with the ball coming onto the bat nicely. Bowlers will need to pitch it in the right areas to put pressure on the batters. The side batting first would be happy to reach a score of 270 runs in this high-pressure contest.
The surface at Basin Reserve, Wellington has been a paradise for the batters. It allows them to play their strokes freely with true bounce and pace on the surface. Fast bowlers enjoy rewards from the surface with the new ball. Spinners don’t get much turn but the large size of the ground does come to their aid.
It will be a high-pressure contest and the batting conditions have looked good in all the games that have been played. The side winning the toss would look to play freely with the bat. Upon winning the toss they would want to bat first and set up a big score on the board.
West Indies Women have their tasks cut out. They will have to come up with their best performance to put Australia Women out of the tournament. Their batters have been inconsistent and they have to punch above their weight to win this contest. Australia Women have played confident cricket and they have looked unstoppable. The side needs to stick to its basics and they will start favorites to win this game.
