India captain likely to replace Deepti Sharma at No. 3 on used Seddon Park strip
Toss India Women chose to bat against West Indies Women
West Indies, meanwhile, will rely on their quick-bowling contingent, which includes Shamilia Connell, by Chinelle Henry and Shakera Selman, to make early inroads. Their in-form offspinning trio of Anisa Mohammed, StafanieTaylor and Hayley Matthews are also likely to have an impact on the turning Seddon Park surface.
West Indies have looked vulnerable against spin and found strike-rotation difficult at times. India, too, have had issues with dots piling up. Much of whether India can salvage their chances of making the knockouts of this World Cup will depend on their performance as a fielding unit. On Saturday, it could prove the difference between a second straight campaign-threatening defeat or a much-needed win against a side that despite their occassional errors on the field have managed to down the hosts and defending champions, England, in their first two outings.
