Top Pick – Batter
Stafanie Taylor was set for the big score against India however got out at the wrong time when she was on 42 runs. She is an experienced campaigner and needs to extend her form in this match.

Hayley Matthews is one of the best all-rounders West Indies Women have ever produced. She has scored 44 runs and picked up a wicket in 2 matches so far in this tournament.
Top Pick – Bowler
Karishma Ramharack is highly effective with her off-breaks, especially in the shortest format. She picked up 2 wickets in the last game against Pakistan at an impressive economy of 3.5.
Top Pick – Wicketkeeper
Amy Hunter opens the batting for Ireland which makes her a first-choice pick in the wicket keepers category. She scored 21 runs in the last 2 matches at a strike rate of 100.

What are the fantasy suggested teams for WI-W vs IR-W, ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2023, Group 2, Match 13?
1. Amy Hunter, Stafanie Taylor, Shemaine Campbelle (vc), Gaby Lewis, Hayley Matthews (c), Laura Delany, Orla Prendergast, Chinelle Henry, Cara Murray, Karishma Ramharack, Arlene Kelly
2. Mary Waldron, Shemaine Campbelle, Chedean Nation, Gaby Lewis (vc), Hayley Matthews, Leah Paul, Eimear Richardson, Chinelle Henry, Afy Fletcher, Cara Murray, Karishma Ramharack
West Indies’ hiccups in all aspects of the game continue as they lost one more game in this competition. They lost to India by 6 wickets with 11 balls to spare despite holding the opposition to 43 for 3 inside 8 overs at one point. Their weakness with the bat was exposed one more time in this tournament as they managed to score only 118 runs on the board. Stafanie Taylor who scored 42 runs against India is doubtful for this match due to injury. They need to come up with different strategies and executions in order to stay in the hunt.
Look like Ireland were never in the game against Pakistan as they got humbled by a massive 70 runs to encounter their 2nd straight defeat in this competition. They gave a tough fight against England however they lacked the same against Pakistan. Orla Prendergast and Eimear Richardson showed some sort of resistance with the bat although it was way too less. It’s a big game coming up on Friday and they need to play hard to remain in the contest. Big stars Gaby Lewis and Laura Delany need to set a tone in this match.
