BAR-W vs IN-W Dream11 prediction
Barbados Women and India Women clash in a virtual knockout fixture on Wednesday.
While Harmanpreet Kaur-led India head into the clash after thrashing arch-rivals Pakistan by eight wickets in their previous fixture at CWG 2022, Hayley Matthews’ Barbados will look to bounce back after being steamrolled by mighty Australia in their last match.
Going by recent form and overall experience, IN-W will start as overwhelming favourites in their first-ever meeting against BAR-W in T20 cricket.
BAR-W vs IN-W Dream11 team tips for Women’s T20 Commonwealth Games 2022
Top Tip: Best batter
In-form Smriti Mandhana will be the batter to watch out for in the final group A fixture at the CWG 2022 cricket event. The Indian opening batter scored an impressive fifty (unbeaten 63 off 42 balls) against arch-rivals in Pakistan in their last match. Mandhana has already accumulated 126 fantasy points and will be a quality investment in your fantasy team at 9.5 credits.
Top Tip: Best bowler
Among the bowlers, India pacer Renuka Singh will be a smart pick at just 8.5 credits. The 26-year-old right-arm fast bowler has been the leading wicket-taker in the competition so far, having picked five wickets in two matches at an economy of 4.75. With 179 fantasy points already to her name, Renuka is a must-have fantasy pick for this crucial encounter against Barbados on Wednesday.
Top Tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
As far as all-rounders are concerned, Barbados Women captain Hayley Matthews will be the overwhelming choice. The star all-rounder has scored 69 runs and also bagged one wicket in two matches so far. She has already amassed 180 fantasy points - the most by any player involved in this match. Even though she’s available at a steep price of 10.5 credits, Matthews makes for a great fantasy pick in this must-win encounter.
Barbados Women’s Kycia Knight will be the preferred choice over Yastika Bhatia of India for the wicket-keeper spot. Besides fulfilling her wicket-keeping responsibilities, Knight has scored 71 runs in two matches for Barbados including a match-winning half-century against Pakistan. The Barbados wicket-keeper will be a valuable addition to any fantasy team at 8.5 credits.
BAR-W vs IN-W playing XI (probable)
Barbados Women playing XI (probable): Deandra Dottin, Hayley Matthews (captain), Kycia Knight (wicket-keeper), Kyshona Knight, Aaliyah Alleyne, Trishan Holder, Alisa Scantlebury, Shakera Selman, Shamilia Connell, Keila Elliott, Shanika Bruce
India Women playing XI (probable): Shafali Verma, Smriti Mandhana, Sabbhineni Meghana, Harmanpreet Kaur (captain), Jemimah Rodrigues, Yastika Bhatia (wicket-keeper), Pooja Vastrakar, Deepti Sharma, Sneh Rana, Radha Yadav, Renuka Singh
