Bangladesh Women celebrated a massive milestone in their previous match as they helped Pakistan to register their first-ever win in the World Cup. They are now up against another stiff opponent in the West Indies, a team that has already turned quite a few heads with its performances.
The ICC Women’s World Cup has been full of surprises so far and one of the teams that have been the most impressive is West Indies. It is the favorite to win this match at all the cricket betting sites and while the odds being offered may be a bit short, we don’t have a problem with assessment.
Match prediction and cricket betting tips for Bangladesh Women vs West Indies Women, ICC Women’s World Cup 2022. The match is going to be played at the Bay Oval, Mount Maunganui on the 18th of March 2022.
BANGLADESH WOMEN VS WEST INDIES WOMEN TEAM PREVIEWS
Bangladesh played very well against Pakistan in its previous match as it posted 234 and then managed to defend it by 9 runs. Fargana Haque top-scored with 71 but impressive performances from Sharmin Akhter and Nigar Sultana were equally important.
The challenge for this Bangladesh batting unit is going to be replicating this good form once more. We don’t think the West Indies team has a spectacular bowling attack or anything like that but Bangladesh’s batting has been quite poor in the past.
One good performance is not enough for us to change our views on them and we will be staying away from betting markets that focus on their batting.
Also, while Bangladesh ended up winning its match against Pakistan, you must not forget that Pakistan was 183 for 2 at one stage. A couple of runouts and some suicidal batting contributed to the collapse as much as Bangladesh’s bowlers.
Rumana Ahmed appears to be one of the more consistent bowlers and you can look to bet on her as the Top Bowler for Bangladesh in this match. Once again, though, this is a strategy fraught with risk.
BANGLADESH WOMEN PLAYING 11
Shamima Sultana, Sharmin Akhter, Fargana Hoque, Nigar Sultana, Rumana Ahmed, Ritu Moni, Fahima Khatun, Salma Khatun, Nahida Akter, Jahanara Alam, Fariha Islam.
WEST INDIES WOMEN
West Indies Women have now won two out of the four matches that they have played and are actually outside the qualification zone for the semi-finals. With just three matches remaining in the group stage, West Indies cannot afford to drop its guard and must look to make a statement in this match.
Winning and possibly improving its net run-rate is going to be on the agenda.
This is why we think the smart betting choices are all going to be available on the West Indian side of things. Most Fours, Most Sixes, Team with Top batter are at least three betting markets where you should back the West Indies with eyes closed.
Among the individual performers, Deandra Dottin and Hayley Matthews standout among the batters while Shamilia Connell is the player that we have been impressed with within the bowling lineup.
West Indies is inconsistent as a team and its bowling is not the best but the advantage that it has over Bangladesh in terms of batting could help it win this match and we are going to bet accordingly.
WEST INDIES WOMEN
Deandra Dottin, Hayley Matthews, Kycia Knight, Stafanie Taylor (c), Shemaine Campbelle (wk), Chaldean Nation, Aaliyah Alleyne, Chinelle Henry, Shakera Selman, Karishma Ramharack, Shamilia Connell
