Match Preview

ICC Women`s World Cup has arrived with great enthusiasm and interest garnering this year. India`s win over the strong contenders Hosts Australia brings great interest among the public and teams are more confident of performing well against stronger opponents.

England was in great form in the T20Is in the last 2-3 years but their recent slump in form is a big worry for their team where they finished last in the tri-series between India and Australia. South Africa is too in a bit of worry with their T20 form and results in the recent matches. South Africa is expected to be the strongest contender for England alongside West Indies in this group. We can expect a cracking contest between two good sides.
