West Indies etched highest score in history

India defeated West Indies by seven wickets in their first round match of the women's cricket World Cup here on Thursday. In 2009, India took the winning track once again and easily chased the target of 85 runs.

"We have enough match-winners in the squad that if they take that responsibility to bat deep they can influence the game in a positive way", the former West Indies seamer pointed out.

It is entirely impossible to back the West Indies with any confidence at the moment, so I'm going to stick with the conventional wisdom and tip India to win by a decent margin.

West Indies got starts from teenaged opener Hayley Matthews (46), captain Stafanie Taylor (45), Chedean Nation (39) and veteran Deandra Dottin (29) but none carried on to a significant score as the innings folded for 204 in the 48th over. Punam Raut (86) and Smriti Mandhana (90) put on a 144-run opening stand that deflated the spirits of the English team.

Deepti Sharma did not last long either as she was bowled by experienced off-spinner Stafanie Taylor. Going into their second game against West Indies, captain Mithali Raj, said "We still have six more games in the group stage, so I just hope the girls continue this form".

However, sources told Cleveland.com the negotiations were "nothing serious " and "very unlikely" to become finalized. Those great teams always had four, five great players".

While the middle order failed to provide any resistance to the slower bowlers, Shanel Daley (33) and Afy Fletcher (36 not out) chipped in with a 30-run partnership for the seventh wicket - the highest for the West Indies women.

World number three India showed their might in the second game with a 105-run drubbing of the hosts, which highlighted the gulf between the two teams. The Taylor-led West Indies have a very big task to stop an in-form Indian batting line-up if they have to press for a win.

Poonam Yadav was the pick of the bowlers who had figures of 2 for 19.
