IN-W vs IR-W Dream11 Prediction & Fan2Play Possible 11 Pitch Report: Women’s T20 World Cup 2023 Match 18 | IN-W vs IR-W Dream11 Prediction Today | Gqeberha Pitch Report

The equation is simple for India: win and qualify for the semi finals. If they lose, they will rely on England beating Pakistan. If they lose heavily (i.e. by 60 runs or more), they will fall behind West Indies and officially be eliminated. So, plenty is at stake for a team that has shown promise, but is still seeking the perfectly polished performance.

For Ireland, it is a chance to salvage pride in their journey. After knocking off Australia in a warm up, they had some good moments against England and pushed West Indies to the final two balls. Another solid performance will hold the Irish in good stead, and they will be aiming to play spoilsport.

Key Players to Watch/Key Stats

India:

  • The excellent Smriti Mandhana hit form post her injury. She is coming off a 41-ball 52 against England.
  • Richa Ghosh is enjoying a fantastic tournament. She is yet to be dismissed, posting scores of 31* (20), 44* (32) and 47* (34).
  • Jemimah Rodrigues has missed out twice since her superb 53* against Pakistan. She has the potential to produce a strong innings today.
  • Renuka Singh is coming off a magnificent 5/15 against England. The Irish batters need to beware of India’s terrific swing bowler.
  • Radha Yadav took 3/25 against Ireland back in the 2018 World Cup.
  • Deepti Sharma has taken at least one wicket in each game of this World Cup (1/39, 3/15 and 1/37). She took 2/15 vs Ireland in the 2018 edition, where she dismissed Gaby Lewis.

Ireland:

  • The impressive Orla Prendergast is Ireland’s leading run-scorer in this World Cup (109). She scored 61 in her last game, against West Indies.
  • Gaby Lewis has made three starts in this tournament (36, 10, 38). Can she carry on for a 50+ score today?
  • Laura Delany is key with both bat and ball for Ireland. She is yet to get going with the bat (12, 8, 1), but has looked more promising with the ball in the last two games (1/20 and 1/30).
  • Cara Murray (SR 14) and Arlene Kelly (SR 20.6) are Ireland’s leading wicket-takers this tournament with three.

Other Stats and Facts

  • India won the only T20I between the teams by 52 runs in the 2018 T20 World Cup.
  • Orla Prendergast (109) and Gaby Lewis (84) are Ireland’s top two run-scorers in this tournament. Next is Eimar Richardson, well behind on 43.
  • Harmanpreet Kaur is yet to fire in this tournament, with just the 53 runs at a strike rate of 88.33 so far.

St George’s Park, Gqeberha, Port Elizabeth Pitch Report
