Highlights of the IND vs WI

The match was indeed nail-biting as both teams were tough to defeat. Team India got off to a fast start thanks to Shafali, but India lost three wickets after scoring only 43 runs.

Richa engaged in her natural game as Harmanpreet lowered the anchor. They made a 72-run partnership by precisely complementing one another. Richa continued to be unblemished and, like against Pakistan, helped India cross the finish line.

Despite being skilled with the ball, Matthews and Ramharack did not receive much assistance from the other players. In addition, Taylor, the most seasoned player for West Indies, had an injury, and Matthews eventually retired as well.

Taking Twitter, ICC wrote, “🔥 4-0-15-3 ✅ 100 T20I wickets A superb spell from Deepti Sharma sees her win the @aramco Player of the Match award 🎖.”

Speaking to the media, Deepti said, “I feel good. What we discussed in the meeting and the plans I had against the West Indies batters, we were able to apply in the middle. That is a milestone and I am happy with the achievement (first Indian to 100 T20I wickets). I am focusing on the rest of the World Cup games. There is a bit of turn in this surface and I focus on bowling stump to stump.”

Ahead of winning the match, player Harmanpreet Kaur said, “It was a great day for us. Whatever we were expecting, we were able to do especially our bowling. We discussed Deepti’s bowling in the team meeting and she was not happy with the last game, the bowling coach helped her and today she got the results. She (Richa) has been great to us. She’s someone who can pull the game for us and we are really happy that she is in that touch. We are happy with the two results and want to continue this rhythm in the next game.”
