India Women and West Women face off in the first ODI on Friday with both sides looking to strike the first blow in the series. Although West Indies has brought in a few reinforcements, India will start the series as the favourites with the likes of Harmanpreet Kaur and Mithali Raj in their ranks. West Indies comes into this series on the back of tough series loss to Aussies but will bank on Stafanie Taylor to deliver the goods. All in all, an even contest between bat and ball awaits the two sides in Antigua
With this being the first game at the venue this series, a fresh wicket with loads of runs is expected. With spin also playing a part, an even contest between bat and ball awaits the two sides on Friday.
The weather is all clear for this game although there is a small chance of rainfall. Overcast conditions could help the pacers while humidity could also come into play during the course of the game.
Injuries: No injuries have been reported for this game
West Indies Women:
Jemimah Rodrigues managed to score a fifty against the South Africans but wasnt able to show consistency during the course of the series. She has over 200 runs in 2019 and looks good for more. Along with her, the likes of Harmanpreet Kaur and Shemaine Campbell also warranty a place in the side. Stafanie Taylor, who ranks among the best allrounders in the world is also a worthwhile option. The Indian duo of Poonam Yadav and Ekta Bisht is a must have in the side while Afy Fletcher should round the fantasy team for this game.
1. Jemimah Rodrigues
2. Deepthi Sharma
3. Stafanie Taylor
