We are into the business end of the ICC Women's World Cup 2022, and we would see South Africa Women up against West Indies Women in the 23rd game. South Africans come here with a loss against the table-toppers Australia Women in their last game. West Indies Women have hit a rough patch and the side went down against Pakistan Women in the last game.
West Indies Women must win this game to keep their hopes of qualifying into the semifinals alive. Their record against South Africa Women has been poor and they have defeated them just once so far in the last ten games. West Indies have good hitters of the ball in the side, and they would have to be at their best to win this game.
Sune Luus’ side suffered its first loss of the tournament in the last game. They went down by 5 wickets against Australia Women. The side was completely overwhelmed by the Aussies as they lost even after putting 271 runs on the board. They are through to the semifinals and Luus would look to build momentum with a win here.
Laura Wolvaardt is enjoying a purple patch in the tournament, and she would look to set up a big partnership with Lizelle Lee. In the middle order, the side has Lara Goodall, Mignon du Preez, and Luus in good form and they would look to score quick runs. Marizanne Kapp and Chloe Tryon can make effective use of the long handle and they would be tasked with doing the big-hitting in the final overs.
Shabnim Ismail and Kaap bowled good lines in the last game, and they would look to target West Indies’ struggling top order. Ayabonga Khaka has had a good tournament and the side would expect a good show from her in this game. Tumi Sekhukhune, Tryon, and Luus are good bowlers, and they add teeth to this attack.

After a great start to the tournament, Stafanie Taylor’s side finds itself in a spot of bother. They went down by 8 wickets against Pakistan in the last game, their third loss in the last four games. Their batters have shown signs of struggle and face a massive challenge in this game. Taylor would want her players to put up a determined effort in this game.
Haley Matthews has been in good form and the side would want her to play a good knock at the top opening with Deandra Dottin. In the middle order, Taylor would have to play the anchor’s role building partnerships with Kycia Knight and Shemaine Campbelle. Chedean Nation and Chinelle Henry are good hitters of the ball and they must get quick runs down the order.
Matthews and Henry have to strike with the new ball given the kind of batting strength South Africans have. Anisa Mohammed is an experienced campaigner and she has to slow down the scoring rate in the middle overs with Afy Fletcher and Shakera Selman. Dottin will need to play the supporting role well in this game.

The skies over Wellington would be partly cloudy on March 24. It has been an excellent wicket where the ball has come onto the bat nicely allowing batters to play their strokes freely. Bowlers have found the surface challenging and hence the side batting first would need 270 runs on the board to feel safe on this wicket.
The wicket at Basin Reserve, Wellington is a batters’ paradise as it allows them to play their strokes freely. There is assistance for the fast bowlers with the new ball as they can generate bounce from the surface. Spinners have also enjoyed success here as the large size of the ground does allow them plenty of cushion.
Three games have been played here and all of them have been high-scoring contests. Bowlers have found assistance from the surface in the early overs, but it has been a batter’s wicket. The side winning the toss would look to take advantage of the conditions by bowling first in the game.
West Indies Women find their backs against the wall. Their batters have let the side down in the last few games they have played. They would need to come up with a better show with the bat to keep their chances alive in the tournament. South Africa Women have played confident cricket and most of their players have been in good form. A stronger batting line-up would make them favorites to win this contest.
