Mumbai: Jan 31, 2013

India beat West Indies by 105 runs in the opening encounter of the ICC Women’s World Cup 2013 in Mumbai on Thursday.

Gauhar Sultana struck again to dismiss Shaquana Quintyne and reduce West Indies to 165 for eight in the 37th over of the innings against India in the inaugural match of the 2013 ICC Women’s World Cup in Mumbai on Thursday.

Indian bowlers joined the party as half the West Indies side was dismissed within the first 20 overs, managing just 84 runs.

Sultana scalped the fifth wicket of Kyshona Knight who missed a tossed up delivery that spun in to hit the top of off-stump and dislodged the bails

Earlier, India picked up their run-rate in the last 10 overs of the innings and reached a decent total of 284 for six in 50 overs.

After a record-breaking 175-run opening stand, India lost Poonam Raut (72) to Shanel Daley as India reached 205 for one in 40 overs. Kamini then went on to hit a record-breaking hundred and boost India’s run rate.

Openers Raut and Thirush Kamini (98 not out) shared the highest opening partnership by an Indian pair against a non-associate cricketing nation. India’s best ever opening partnership is 258 against Ireland.

Raut and Kamini provided the hosts a strong start, although the duo could work on their running between the wickets. Kamini appears the slower of the two while running, as India maintain a run-rate just over four runs an over.

Raut made ample use of the ‘Dilscoop’ and has found the boundary four times already with the shot.

Raut, who is fresh from a good knock against New Zealand in the warm-up matches, struck a total seven boundaries in her 94-ball 72, while Kamini neared her century after the former’s departure.

India take on the West Indies in the inaugural match of the ICC Women’s World Cup 2013 at the Brabourne Stadium, Mumbai.

Indian women’s team skipper Mithali Raj is hopeful that her team will use the home conditions to good effect in their opening World Cup match against the West Indies.

“Some of their players are not keeping well and they still have to get acclimatised to the conditions. That might help us and also the kind form we are in, I am sure the girls will put up a good show,” Mithali said at the press conference.

West Indies women’s team skipper Merissa Aguilleira doesn’t want to underestimate hosts India in the upcoming Women’s World Cup even though they won the bilateral series against Mithali Raj and Co last year.

“Definitely, the tournament in West Indies was a good one. It was fought well by both teams. I think the team has been performing very well. They have developed and played a lot of cricket. I don’t think you can underestimate any of the teams, even India. We just have to continue to do what we do and just stick to the basics,” she told reporters at the press conference.
