South Africa women take on West Indies women in match 23 of the ICC Women’s World Cup 2022 at Basin Reserve in Wellington on Thursday, March 24. The match will begin from 3:30 AM IST.
South Africa women suffered their first defeat of the ICC Women’s World Cup 2022 campaign against Australia last time around, and will look to return to winning ways on Thursday. The Sune Luus-led side, second in the standings with eight points, need a win against West Indies women to confirm a top-four finish and qualification to the semis.
West Indies, on the other hand, suffered an eight-wicket defeat against Pakistan and are sweating over their chances of qualifying for the semi-finals. A loss for the Stafanie Taylor-led side on Wednesday could see West Indies exit the competition.
