Tip Summary

  • It is an important game for India to book a berth in the second phase of the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2023.
  • It is a dead rubber for Ireland Women as they have already been ruled out of the T20 Championship. 
  • The two teams have played against each other just once and India Women won that game by massive 52 runs. 

It will be a must-win game for India Women on Monday, February 20 at St George’s Park in Gqeberha when they will go one-on-one against Ireland Women. The Women in Blue are yet to book a seat in the semi-finals of the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2023. 

The Indian cricket team got off to a dream start in the T20 competition with a victory against Pakistan Women by seven wickets. They chased 150 runs within 20 overs owing to the batting exploits of the top-order batter Jemimah Rodrigues. India Women carry forward the momentum against West Indies Women as well. This time they recorded a win by six wickets 

Indian batters had to chase only 119 runs in their allotted 20 overs and they easily completed the task within 18.1 overs. However, the team could not work the same magic against England Women. They failed in chasing 152 runs and ended up losing by 11 runs. Smriti Mandhana and Richa Ghosh made good efforts but the team fell short of some runs. With two wins and one loss, India Women are second in the Group B points table. 

On the other hand, Ireland Women have been struggling in the tournament. They are the first team to get eliminated from the playoff race of the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2023. Ireland failed to score even a single win in the tournament as they lost their first three league matches. 

Ireland’s three losses in the tournament so far have come against England Women, Pakistan Women, and West Indies Women by four wickets, 70 runs, and six wickets respectively. Though the result won’t have any impact on Ireland Women, they will be hoping for a win to end the World Cup on a good note.

India (W) vs Ireland (W) Tips

Top India Women Batter: Smriti Mandhana

  • Tournament: ICC Women's T20 World Cup 2023

India Women’s ace batter Smriti Mandhana will be the top player for India Women on Monday when they will play against Ireland Women. Mandhana missed the first game against Pakistan Women due to a serious injury. Though she made a comeback in the second game against West Indies Women, Smriti failed to make her presence felt with the bat. Opening the innings for India, she walked back to the pavilion after scoring only ten runs off seven balls. However, the team’s most recent game England Women saw the opening batter finally returning back to form. When India Women were asked to chase 152 runs, the 26-year-old smacked 52 runs off 41 balls. Her knock included seven boundaries and one six at a strike rate of 126.83. There are good chances of the player continuing her brilliant form on Monday as well and taking India to a much-needed victory.

  • Best Odds: 3.75 @ 10Cric

The 20-year-old Orla Prendergast is the top run-getter for Ireland Women in the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2023. She has scored 109 runs so far in three matches at an average of over 36. Orla was the only saving grace for the team when they locked horns with West Indies Women in their last match. Batting first in the game, Ireland Women started on a poor note as they lost their opening batter Amy Hunter early in the game. However, Prendergast came up with a knock of 61 runs off 47 balls to take her team to a relatively respectable score of 61 runs off 47 balls. The 20-year-old smashed six boundaries and one six as she scored runs at a strike rate of 129.79.

Renuka Singh has been the driving force for the Indian Women’s team with the ball in the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2023 so far. She is the top wicket-taker for the Women in Blue with six wickets to her name in three matches at an average of 10.17. The 27-year-old was absolutely sensational in the last game against England Women. She picked a whopping five wickets while conceding only 15 runs in her allotted four overs at an economy rate of 3.8. Thus, the chances of Renuka doing well on Monday as quite high.
