Barbados put India in to bat in winner-takes-all clash

Toss Barbados selected to bowl vs India

Hayley Matthews referred to as appropriately as Barbados elected to bowl first in opposition to India in what was a digital knockout match on the Commonwealth Video games. The winner of this Group A conflict will be part of Australia, England and New Zealand within the semi-finals.
India made two adjustments, with Pooja Vastrakar and Taniya Bhatia coming in for his or her first video games of the competitors. This meant time on the sidelines for S Meghana and Yastika Bhatia.

Vastrakar, who solely arrived in Birmingham two days earlier following a restoration from Covid-19, presents a useful seam choice and a few decrease order firepower with the bat, thereby lending higher steadiness to the aspect. Taniya’s inclusion, in the meantime, pointed to the workforce administration having shelved the thought of getting a makeshift wicketkeeper for now.

Barbados introduced in 21-year-old offspinner Shaunte Carrington instead of legspinner Keila Elliott in a XI that has as many as seven members who’ve performed for West Indies.

India: Smriti Mandhana, Shafali Verma, Jemimah Rodrigues, Harmanpreet Kaur (capt), Pooja Vastrakar, Taniya Bhatia (wk), Deepti Sharma, Sneh Rana, Radha Yadav, Meghna Singh, Renuka Singh

Barbados : Deandra Dottin, Hayley Matthews (capt), Kycia Knight (wk), Kyshona Knight, Aaliyah Alleyne, Trishan Holder, Alisa Scantlebury, Shakera Selman, Shaunte Carrington, Shamilia Connell, Shanika Bruce
