Harare Sports Club Ground is all set to host the qualifier between 2013 Women’s ODI runner-ups West Indies and newly promoted ODI team Ireland on November 23rd. The match will kick off at 09:30 am local time. West Indies Women are eying their eighth appearance in the World Cup. While Ireland Women will be looking forward to playing the World Cup for the sixth time overall and first since they were awarded a Full Member status in 2017.

Runners up of the 2013 Women’s Cricket World Cup, West Indies Women didn’t live up to the expectations in the next edition and crashed out after finishing sixth in the group stage. They came seventh in the 2017-2020 ICC Women’s Championship to advance to the 2021 Women’s World Cup Qualifier. But WI-Women will be high on confidence. After all, they have won their last five ODIs including a 3-match series win against Pakistan in Pakistan. They thrashed Thailand Women by 151 runs in the warm-up game to send the notice to other teams eying for the World Cup berth.

After missing the last three editions, Ireland Women will be looking forward to entering the World Cup and living up to their full-time status. Before coming to the qualifiers, the Ireland Women team whitewashed Zimbabwe Women in a four-match series.

Ireland Women Preview

Skipper Stafanie Taylor will be relying on the form of Dendra Dottin and all-rounder Hayley Matthews. Dottin scored 170 runs in the ODI series against Pakistan at an average of 56.66 including a career-best 132. She continued her form in the warmup game against Thailand with an unbeaten century. With Dottin opening the innings, Rashada Khan and Taylor will offer her support in the top-order. Taylor scored a century in the final game against Pakistan. Her experience in crunch games will come in handy for WI Women.

Hayley Matthews is having the form of her life. She was the leading wicket-taker for WI Women against Pakistan with 7 wickets and even scored 132 runs with the bat at an average of 44. Mathews even scored a fifty in the warm-up game. She will lead the middle-order with Chedean Nation.

Shakera Selman who had a good run on the Pakistan tour will be the centre of the WI Women’s bowling unit. Selman bowled just 2 overs in the warm-up game but took 2 wickets. 

Key Players: Deandra Dottin, Hayley Matthews, Stafanie Taylor

Ireland Women Predicted Playing XI:

Stafanie Taylor (c), Rashada Williams (wk), Deandra Dottin, Hayley Matthews, Shemaine Campbelle, Chedean Nation, Qiana Joseph, Sheneta Grimmond, Chenille Henry, Shakera Selman, Aaliyah Alleyne

West Indies Women Preview

Ireland Women are all set to begin their quest to qualify for the Women’s World Cup in 2022. Though they lost the warm-up encounter against Pakistan, the Ireland Women is coming into the qualifiers with a lot of confidence. They defeated the Hosts Zimbabwe in the recently concluded away ODI tour by a margin of 3-1. After losing the first ODI of that series, the Ireland Women came back stronger to defeat the hosts comprehensively in the next three matches by – 80 runs, 8 wickets, and 85 runs respectively.

Ireland Women do not have a good record against the Windies counterpart. They would hope that their prime batters – captain Laura Delany, and Gaby Lewis would come good against the mighty West Indies Women. The bowling will primarily rest on the shoulders of Cara Murray who has taken 12 wickets in last 7 ODIs she has been part of.

Key Players: Laura Delany, Gaby Lewis, Cara Murray

West Indies Women Predicted Playing XI:

Leah Paul, Gaby Lewis, Amy Hunter, Laura Delany (c), Shauna Kavanagh, Orla Prendergast, Eimear Richardson, Mary Waldron †, Celeste Raack, Cara Murray
