The Indian women’s team white washed the T20 World Champions West Indies and won the ODI series 3-0.

India won the first ODI by six wickets where Rajeshwari Gayakwad took 4 wickets and Ekta Bisht took 3 wickets and restricted WI in 131 runs. In the second innings India was only on 36 for four, then came Veda Krishnamurti who made a partnership of 97 runs with Mithali Raj and helped India to win by 6 wickets.

In the second match West Indies could only manage 153 runs due to very tough bowling by the bowling department. No one of the West Indies women could score a decent run other than Deandra Dottin (63).

Again in form batswoman Mithali Raj scored 45 runs, Smriti mandhana 44 runs and Deepti Sharma 32 runs and secured India to win the second match by 5 wickets without any difficulty in 38 overs.

In the third match India batted first and scored 199 runs where all of them contributed some runs in the scoreboard. Veda Krishnamurti scored 71 runs. Hayley matthews’s 44 runs in 53 balls and Kycia Knight’s 55 off 94 didn’t help the West Indies courtesy Rajeshwari and 3 very casual run outs. Rajeshwari registered bowling figure of 10-1-34-4 and finished their innings at 184 runs.

Considering West Indies’ recent run of form and the kind of destructive players they have in their line up, this series will do a world of good for the Indian women.
