AU-W vs IN-W: The 2nd T20I match between Australia Women and India Women will be played on 9th October at the Carrara Oval.
The first T20I was called out after rain spoiled the game. The rain even took away Jemimah’s chance of completing her first fifty down under this year. She was batting on 49 when the match was interrupted by rain.
Harmanpreet Kaur’s cameo was fine too, but she needs to improve her game against spin to avoid LBWs, something which has become her weakness. Smriti Mandhana and Shafali Verma looked in great touch too and they will look to carry on this momentum further in the series.
Australia, on the other hand have some terrific in-form players in their squads who are all set to showcase their attacking skills with both the bat as well as the ball.
Here are the match details, pitch report, probable playing 11, squads and dream11 fantasy team predictions for the 2nd T20I of the India Women Tour of West Indies 2021 on Saturday, October 9, 2021.
