It’s a clash between the table toppers and a team that has sprung a couple of surprises already. Australia is on a roll just as one would expect them to be. They started off with a close win against England, then followed it up with a huge win against Pakistan. And then defeated the hosts New Zealand by a huge win.
Australia had Ellyse Perry risen up to the occasion and put up an absolute clinic. Then came the masterclass of the rising star Tahlia McGrath who scored a fifty as well. Ashleigh Gardner proved training is overrated as she came straight out of the MIQ to finish with 48 not out off just 18 balls. Gardner came in to bat in the 45th over and still managed 48 which created a massive momentum shift.

Australia Women VS West Indies Women: Important Players
Alyssa Healy: Alyssa Healy hasn’t fired for Australia in this World Cup. However, she remains one of the most destructive batters in the competition, with her ability to get her side off to a blazing start being the key. With Healy being due for a big one, she is a must-have in your AU-W vs WI-W Dream11 fantasy team.
Deandra Dottin: Deandra Dottin gave a good account of herself in West Indies’ defeat to India, scoring a quick-fire 62 off just 46 balls. The Windies opener will be keen to continue the same form and given her added value on the bowling front, she is one to keep an eye out for in this game.
Hayley Matthews: Hayley Matthews has been West Indies’ go-to player in this series, scoring runs and wickets for fun. While her bowling has been steady, the value she presents with the bat is key for the Windies. With the conditions also suiting her, Matthews is a fine addition to your AU-W vs WI-W Dream11 fantasy team.
Amanda Wellington: Amanda Wellington has been decent since being drafted into the side. In addition to her leg-spin, Wellington can hit the ball long as well.
