The ICC Women’s World Cup 2022 has been one of the most exciting ones in the history of the game. Australia qualified with 7 wins from its seven matches while the West Indies qualified by the skin of their teeth. It took a rained-out game and one crucial no-ball to eventually help them qualify.
The cricket betting sites are all favoring Australia Women very heavily in this match. The odds available on them to win are very short. Understandably so we think since Australia is the most dominant team in the history of this game. Get the best odds

AUSW VS WIW TEAM PREVIEWS
Australia Women have won all their matches in the ICC WOmen’s World Cup 2022 so far but they did come a bit close to losing on more than one occasion. Here is the thing. There is absolutely no doubt about the fact that Australia has the best cricket team in this entire tournament. It has more batting depth, an excellent bowling attack, and a belief that it can win in any situation.
However, Australia is not unbeatable and that is why you have to be a bit careful while betting on it.
If you want to look for value in this match, you have to bet on the individual player markets (a bit riskier) as they come with better odds. Rachel Haynes and Meg Lanning have been the best batters for Australia so far but at this knockout stage, you may also consider a bet on Alyssa Healy.
She seems to have a knack for performing on the big stage when it counts the most.
The bowling lineup for Australia is decent with the standout bowler being Alana King. She is a very intelligent wrist-spinner and someone whom we think can run through the West Indian lineup. She would be our pick for the Top Bowler Australia betting market in this match.
Australia is in terrific form, has experience of winning big tournaments before, and has an excellent record against the West Indies. The conditions also seem to be favoring them. With all the Aces in their hands, it is quite easy to see why the cricket betting sites are offering such short odds for them to win.
WEST INDIES WOMEN
West Indies Women would be the first to admit that they were lucky to have been able to make it into the semi-finals. They have lost to India, Pakistan, Australia, and came within a whisker of losing to Bangladesh as well. These four plus a rained-out match against South Africa have been its most recent five outings.
Of course, you must keep in mind that the West Indies did beat England and New Zealand quite comprehensively.
The likes of Deandra Dottin and Hayley Matthews are certainly capable of putting up a fight or even playing a match-winning inning. The West Indies women, though, do not have the kind of depth that is required to be successful consistently. If Dottin and Matthews get out early, the others are going to struggle.
Stafanie Taylor is in poor form and that is another big problem for the West Indies since she plays such a crucial role for the team.
The bowling attack for West Indies is not too much worse than Australia’s but it would be short on confidence. From a betting point of view, we are going to stay far away from the West Indian player markets for this match.
