The action moves to the shortest format as India Women and West Indies Women play each other in the first T20-I on Sunday. Although both teams did give in their best in the ODI series, India put in a professional performance in the final game to seal a series win. While India will be the favourites for this game, the return of Hayley Matthews adds much-needed firepower to the West Indian side. The West Indians don't have happy memories of their last T20I series against Australia, they will fancy their chances of an upset with home support also in their favour. Here are a few tips you help you pick your Dream11 team for WI-W vs IND-W
Squads to choose from:
West Indies Women:
Stafanie Taylor (C), Hayley Matthews, Kyshona Knight, Sheneta Grimmond, Chinelle Henry, Stacy Ann-King, Anisa Mohammed, Shakera Selman, Chedean Nation, Natasha McLean, Shemaine Campbell, Shabika Gajnabi, Afy Fletcher and Aaliyah Alleyne.

Playing XI Updates:
West Indies Women:
With Hayley Matthews and Shekera Selman included in the side, West Indies have a lot of firepower in their side. While Stacy Ann-King and Chedean Nation are also useful assets, a lot depends on Stafanie Taylor, who was adjudged as the player of the recently concluded ODI series. Their bowling unit needs to step up with Aaliyah Alleyne and Afy Fletcher being key to their fortunes. Shemaine Campbell is in danger of missing out with Sheneta Grimmond being a viable player as well in the shortest format.
Possible XI: Matthews, Nation, McLean, Taylor(C), Campbelle (WK), King, Knight, Afy, Alleyne, Mohammed and Selman
As for the Indians, they should field their strongest side for this game. With Smriti Mandhana's successful return in the final ODI bodes well for the Indians. She should open the batting alongside Shafali Verma while the experience of Harmanpreet Kaur and Jemimah Rodrigues should also have a say in this game. Deepti Sharma, who has ample experience playing in the Women's Super League in England, is a useful asset with both bat and ball. The Indians have good batting depth with Shikha Pandey also capable of clearing the boundary. With the pitch set to help the spinners, the duo of Radha Yadav and Poonam Yadav will be one to keep an eye out for in this game.
Possible XI: Mandhana, Shafali, Jemimah, Kaur (C), Deepti, Veda, Bhatia (WK), Shikha, Poonam, Radha and Arundhati

A slow track with ample help for the spinners is expected with 130 being par here. In spite of a competitive wicket in-store, the weather forecast isn't too great with rain expected to play spoilsport in this game.
Fantasy Tips and Suggestions:
Wicket-keeper: While both keepers, Shemaine Campbelle and Taniya Bhatia are available for the same credits, it should be the West Indian who should get the nod for this game. Although Bhatia has the ability to score quick runs, she bats too deep down the order for anyone's liking. On the other hand, Campbelle should bat higher in the West Indian batting unit and should make good use of her experience in this game.
Batters: Smriti Mandhana is a must-have after her match-winning performance in the final ODI. Along with her, one of Jemimah Rodrigues or Shafali Verma would do the trick. From the West Indian roster, Chedean Nation should suffice with the West Indian showing glimpses of what she capable of against the Australians in Windies' previous T20 series.
Allrounders: Three or four allrounders should do the trick for this game with Hayley Matthews being one to watch out for. Both captains, Harmanpreet Kaur and Stafanie Taylor are capable of scoring quick runs in the middle order and should be backed for this game as well. Another such option is Deepti Sharma, who was one of the best bowlers in India's series win against South Africa last month.
Bowlers: Indian spin duo of Poonam Yadav and Radha Yadav are two of the best in the business. While Arundhati Reddy is also capable of picking a wicket or two, Poonam and Radha Yadav should make the cut for this game. Along with them, Afy Fletcher is another worth-while candidate to complete the fantasy team for this game.
Captain: Although they just returned to international cricket in the final ODI, both Hayley Matthews and Smriti Mandhana put in great shifts and look in very good knick as well. Both of them should be backed to deliver once again while the likes of Stafanie Taylor and Deepti Sharma can also fill as captain or vice-captain if one were to prefer a different option.
Fantasy Suggestion #1: Shemaine Campbelle, Chedean Nation, Jemimah Rodrigues, Smriti Mandhana, Deepti Sharma, Hayley Matthews, Stafanie Taylor, Poonam Yadav, Afy Fletcher, Radha Yadav and Shakera Selman. Captain: Smriti Mandhana, Vice-Captain: Hayley Matthews
Fantasy Suggestion #2: Shemaine Campbell, Smriti Mandhana, Shafali Verma, Chedean Nation, Harmanpreet Kaur, Deepti Sharma, Hayley Matthews, Stafanie Taylor, Radha Yadav, Afy Fletcher and Arundhati Reddy. Captain: Stafanie Taylor, Vice-Captain: Smriti Mandhana
