The West Indies Women’s team will be hosting their Indian counterparts in the month of November 2019 for 3 ODIs followed by 5 T20Is. All the 50-over games will be a part of the ICC Women’s ODI Championship. In fact, the West Indies Women vs India Women series will be the last for both teams in the ongoing championship.
The Indian Women's cricket team have the upper hand when it comes to the head-to-head stats in the ODI format. They have won 18 and lost only 4 of the 22 matches. But, they have won only 1 and lost 2 ODIs out of the three that were played in the West Indies. They will have to win the series 3-0 to gain a lead on the Caribbean women in the 50-over format.

When it comes to the T20I format, the hosts are in the lead with 8 wins and 5 losses in 13 games. They also hold the lead in home conditions where they have won 3 and lost 2 T20Is. However, there is not much difference in the ICC T20I Women’s Team Rankings where the hosts are placed fourth and the visitors are fifth. This points to the fact that there is not much difference in the current form of the two teams.
The WI W vs IND W ODI series will be the final series in the ICC Women’s ODI Championship, that allows the teams to qualify for the 2021 Women's Cricket World Cup. Team India are placed third and are in a better position to qualify than the West Indies Women's team who are placed seventh. They will have to beat India 3-0 and expect some other results to go their way in order to qualify. The three ODIs will be played on 1, 3 and 6 November at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in North Sound, Antigua.
The West Indies Women vs India Women 2019 T20I series will be more of a practice series for both teams for the mega event, the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2020 in Australia. The Indian Women also have a chance of exchanging positions in the ICC Rankings with the hosts in the five-match T20I series.
