India vs West Indies Women’s Cricket One-handed catch by Hayley Matthews against Deepti Sharma in the Women’s World Cup on Saturday was another example of the West Indies team’s athleticism in the field

A stunning one-handed catch at first slip by Hayley Matthews off the bowling of Anisa Mohammed helped West Indies eliminate India batter, Deepti Sharma, on Saturday in the ongoing Women’s World Cup. After a promising start from openers Yastika Bhatia and Smriti Mandhana, India was reeling after Deepti’s dismissal, which put them on the back foot. Mohammed’s delivery struck Deepti on the edge of her bat, allowing her to score 15 runs in just 20 balls. The batter had a powerful swing, and Matthews had to make a diving catch with his reflexes to capture him.

The West Indies Women’s fielding and catching have established a high bar so far in the tournament.

For example, Deandra Dottin’s diving catch in the point area versus England to remove Lauren Winfield Hill has been the tournament’s most memorable moment.

India captain Mithali Raj won the toss and elected to bat first earlier today. A decision that follows India’s decision to field and chase against New Zealand, which resulted in a 62-run defeat.

India fielded an unchanged team, led by Yastika Bhatia at the top of the order, for the match. Shafali Verma, a promising youngster, remained on the substitutes’ bench after being omitted from the team’s last encounter against New Zealand.

After losing three wickets in rapid succession, India was still going strong at the time of writing this. The half-centuries by Smriti Mandhana and Harmanpreet Kaur put India on course for a large total.
