IND-W won by 155 runs.
Player of the match: Smriti Mandhana
 
Thank you so much for joining us for yet another exciting contest! This is Pradeep and myself (Pranav Danani) who will be taking your leave. If you are wondering what's next then don't you go anywhere as Sportskeeda has got you covered with some international test cricket all throughout day, as we have Pakistan vs Australia, India vs Sri Lanka and the final day's play of West indies vs England. Stay Tuned.
Stafanie Taylor, West Indies-W, Captain - "Didn't bowl the way we wanted to and couple of area is where we fell short. The batters, batted well and they put us under the pressure for the second innings and we couldn't get back in this match. The openers gave us a fabulous start and it is important for them to stay there, at least one of them and the batters need to support the team down the order for sure. The positive from this game is definitely the opening partnership and will look to come back stronger in the matches to come"

Mithali Raj, India-W, Captain - "Couldn't have asked for anything better and will help us massively in the knockouts. Everybody knew the importance of today's game and put special effort as West Indies were coming fresh from the two wins. During the tournament we have to be flexible and change the plans from time to time. It was Smriti and Hamanpreet, who have played the knock we needed and the bowlers did an amazing part. We surely need the youngsters to crack the jokes and support us during the tough times and keep us in the fresh spirits, as me and Jhulan have played the game for a long time now. The one thing we are consistent about is to have the winning mindset to go out on the field and win."
Smriti Mandhana and Harmanpreet Kaur, both have been adjudged the Player of the match, they both share the trophy for their blistering hundred today to setup the game for India!

Smriti Mandhana:
Well I think, scoring a century and not being the player of the match is not something that anybody wants. I think we both contributed to the score to get it over 300 and it's good to share the trophy, both deserve it. I think as a batter, we prefer both (setting up a target and chasing), toss is not going to go your way and you won't get what you want. Last match we didn't get going, when you chase you need to set the tone and in the chase you need to set the tone and carry the moment, it's important even with when you are setting up the target to start well. Our strengths are really different, Kaur is very good with the spin and I like pace on the ball, we know that and when the spinner was coming on to bowl, I used to give the strike back to Harman and she did the same when there was a pacer coming on. I'm sure ICC will be giving another trophy and they have enough budget to do that (has a huge smile on her face).

Harmanpreet Kaur: 
I think, we had set batters in the middle and in the last game against White Ferns, we were missing that and I didn't have a another good company to string a partnership but today I'm glad Smriti was there at the other end. I was also very confident about how I was going with the bat and was getting the rhythm, we were just looking to convert singles into doubles and were scoring those odd boundaries as well. I think, it's mostly because of left and right combination, when she was hitting boundaries I was getting the strike back to her and then later one she did the same. I would love give the trophy to Smriti, she deserves it as she's scored more than me. 
India have outplayed the mighty women from the West Indies and India have surely got their heads up in this tournament! They have played their part, brilliantly with the white ball and adjectives fall short to praise the wonder women in blue here. They were soaring in the skies after their performance in the first innings and they surely did not fail to deliver in this one. However the wickets did not come from the word "go" for the bowlers and they did have a hard time in the start, but once they got going, then there was no looking back for India.

The match started off as no less then a nightmare for the batters as they were getting hit all over the park by Dottin and Matthews as they got the 100 run partnership in a blink of an eye in 12 overs and it looked like West indies were winning this one comfortably with probably all the wickets to spare. The bowlers were having the clouds over their future in this contest and there was no hope for India-W to make a solid comeback.

Little did the batters knew that there was a tsunami of wickets were coming towards the West Indies as after Dottin's back issue got the best of her which lead to her dismissal and it was a frenzy of wickets from that point on as India managed to get the wickets in regular intervals as the spinners did the trick by getting some intense turn on the ball, followed by the pacers getting the wickets as well with Jhulan Goswami becoming the leading wicket taker in all of the World Cups with 40 wickets to her name.

India Women win by 155 runs.
40.3 Sneh Rana to Shamilia Connell, OUT! GOES UP IN THE AIR AND RANA HAS HER THIRD FOR THE NIGHT! India bowl out West Indies, clinical performance to win this encounter. West Indies threatened India in the powerplay but boy did India make a remarkable come back to bowl out West Indies here and win by a massive 155 runs! Quicker one from Rana, length delivery on the middle and off, Connell gets forward to turn it into the on-side, leading edge, balloons up in the air, Rana runs backs to the on-side and pouches it, she's elated and so does India!

Shamilia Connell c & b Rana 0 (7b 0x4 0x6)
40.2 Sneh Rana to Shakera Selman, OH! Leading edge into the off-side, length delivery on the off-stump, Selman looking to whip it into the on-side but doesn't, they pick up a single.

The bowlers are looking for the edge and this is no less than box cricket at the moment for the batters.
