Ireland Women will lock horns against West Indies Women in the third match of the ICC Women’s World Cup Qualifiers 2021. The Old Hararians ground in Harare, Zimbabwe, will host this exciting contest.
Ireland played Pakistan in the warm-up match, where they dished out a disappointing performance. Batting first, Ireland got off to a good start, but could only manage 192-8 in their 50 overs. In response, Pakistan won the game by seven wickets in the 42nd over. So Ireland will need to be on their toes to beat the West Indies.
West Indies, meanwhile, have been on a roll recently. After clean-sweeping Pakistan in a three-match ODI series, they carried their winning form forward by thumping Thailand in the warm-ups.
After being asked to bat first, West Indies posted 230 runs on the board, thanks to a century from Deandra Dottin. Their bowlers then knocked over Thailand for a paltry 79 to register a comprehensive win. West Indies will look to continue performing in the same vein in the qualifiers.
