WIW vs IREW Betting Tips
  • Shemaine Campbelle has consistently hit two consecutive 30-plus scores and she is our top tip for WI-W’s highest run scorer against Ire-W. Hayley Matthews has an impressive T20I bowling record with 75 scalps to her name. She bowled splendidly well against Ind-W where she conceded just 12 in her 4 allotted overs picking up a prize wicket of JL Rodrigues. She is well worth backing as WI-W’s top wicket-taker ahead of the fixture.
  • Gaby Lewis has looked in fine touch and has scored some useful runs at the top of the order for her side. The opener is a strong choice for Ire-W’s highest run scorer on Friday. Cara Murray starred with the ball in the opening game as the leggie claimed 3-15 to rattle Eng-W’s top order. She is our pick for Ire-W’s top wicket-taker in this game.
  • Being a consistent performer for her side under pressure situations, we recommend selecting Shemaine Campbelle to hit over 31.5 runs in this game.

WI-W vs IRE-W T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, Womens T20 World Cup 2023

The 13th match of the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup is all set to take place between West Indies Women and Ireland Women at the Newlands Cricket ground in Cape Town on February 17th, 2023. The match is scheduled to kick off at 19:00 local time. 

West Indies Women find themselves languishing at the bottom of the Group 2 table after being blown away by England Women and India Women. They are currently placed at number 4 position with a dismal-looking net run rate of – 1.542. Although it is relatively early to write them off, WI-W have not had the best outing in their last 5 T20I games and that would certainly be playing on their mind big time ahead of this fixture.

On the other hand, Ireland Women also find themselves in a similar position and are currently placed one spot behind of West Indies Women in the Group 2 table. They too have been castled by England Women in their opening game and suffered a heavy defeat at the hands of Pakistan Women in yesterday’s fixture. They are right at the bottom of the points table with an embarrassing NRR of – 2.922.

Judging by the reputation of these sides, WI-W appear far more formidable than Ire-W. But in this year’s T20 World Cup edition, both teams find themselves neck and neck sitting at the bottom of the table. WI-W have played more T20I compared to Ire-W and have a decent-looking win percentage of 50.64%. They certainly appear to be the most experienced side on paper compared to Ire-W. However, they must address their bowling woes ahead of this fixture as it was their bowling department that let them against England Women and India Women. 

Ire-W on the other hand are a slightly inexperienced T20 side. They have played 100 T20I and have won only 36 of them. Their win percentage in T20I is nowhere near WI-W which is at an unbelievable low of 36%. In the opening game, Ire-W’s batting faltered badly which prevented them from posting a competitive score. In their second game against Pak-W, they were blown away on all fronts as they let Pak-W get away with a competitive total. In the end, their batting failed to offer any sort of resistance and were bundled out cheaply for just 95.  in the first will have to address issues pertaining to their middle order as their middle order failed to offer any sort of resistance to the English bowlers which prevented them from posting a competitive total. Moreover, With both sides desperate for a win to stay alive in this competition, our prediction favours WI-W to edge past Ire-W.

WI-W vs IRE-W Match Toss Prediction

Out of 28 T20 matches played at this venue, 9 have been won by the team batting first, and the team chasing has won 17 times. The track gets better as time progresses and is favourable for the team bowling first. If common sense prevails, the skipper winning the toss might want to bowl first.

WI-W vs IRE-W, Newlands Pitch Report

The pitch at Newlands is a batting friendly surface and we have seen teams register big totals. Also, the pitch has something to offer to slow bowlers as well. As the surface wears off, it can aid the spinners who can extract proper turn and bounce to keep the batters guessing. 

Capetown Weather Report

The weather is expected to remain cloudy throughout the day with maximum and minimum temperature of 24 C and 18 C respectively. However, chances of rain at this stage is barely at 10%, it is certainly going to be a very windy day as the breeze is expected to blow in excess of 43 km/h.

WI Women Team News & Playing 11

WI-W Team News

WI-W batters looked very assured at the crease in their opening game but it was their middle and lower order that was in total disarray. We anticipate seeing a few changes especially in the bowling department ahead of this fixture.

WI-W Key Players

  • Hayley Matthews - Matthews has been the highest run scorer for WI-W in the last year alone. She has amassed 360 runs in just 15 innings at a healthy average of just around 25. She looked in fine touch against Eng-W where she scored 42 (32) at the top of the order providing her side with some sort of stability before they lost their way in the middle. Besides, she has registered a threatening career best of 107* so we can surely expect her to fire this time around.
  • Shemaine Campbelle – Shermaine is amongst the leading run scorer for WI-W since last year. In her opening game, she emerged as the second-highest run-scorer for WI-W after Matthews scored 34 off 37 balls. She even showed her maturity as a batter against Ind-W where she held one end together and complied a useful innings of 30 in 36 balls. Although her strike rate may be on the lower side, she definitely has the ability to play the anchoring innings when the chips are down.
  • Chinelle Henry - Henry bowls with a superb economy rate of just under 6.7 RPO and maintains a lethal strike rate of 27.3 She shined with the ball in the opening game against Eng-W where she picked up two important scalps early on. She was the only bowler in that game who looked threatening and we surely expect her to carry the same form to this fixture as well.  

WI-W Team Form

WI-W have now lost both the games of the Women’s T20 World Cup 2023. However, they have lost 5 T20I in a row and would be itching to end their losing streak.

IRE Women Team News & Playing 11

IRE-W Team News

Ire-W have been beaten comprehensively in this year’s Women’s T20 World Cup by Eng-W and Pak-W. We can surely anticipate seeing some forced changes in all departments leading up to this upcoming fixture.

IRE-W Key Players

  • Gaby Lewis – Gaby Lewis is arguably one of the best batters in the Ire-W side. She has been scoring runs on a consistent basis and has delivered on occasions when it mattered the most. Her heroics against Pak-W where she scored 71(46) helped Ire-W clinch the match and also the series in a scintillating fashion. She started her world cup campaign on a steady note and got some useful runs up the order against Eng-W. She currently averaged 26.37 with the bat and has a formidable strike rate of just under 120.
  • Arlene Kelly – Kelly has emerged as the highest wicket-taker for Ire-W in recent times. Last year alone, she bagged 22 T20I wickets in just 17 innings which came at a record-breaking average of 15.40. Her strike rate and economy rate of 15.6 and 5.9 respectively can send some chills down the spine of any world-class batter. Her contribution with the ball helped Ire-W register a famous series win against Pak-W in their backyard last year in November. With some notable achievements under her belt, we expect Kelly to showcase her prowess with the ball yet.
  • Orla Prendergast – The young 20-year-old has a bright future ahead of her. At such a young age she is now one of the top run-getters for Ire-W. She currently has a phenomenal T20 batting average of 22.59 coupled with a robust strike rate of over 122. Known for her all-around abilities with the bat and the ball she is truly an asset for her side. 

IRE-W Team Form

Although Ire-W have managed to register 2 wins in their last 5 T20I games, they have been jolted pretty badly in the ongoing edition of the Women’s T20 World Cup. The heavy defeats would certainly be playing on their minds and any possibility of a fierce resistance appears dim at this stage.

WI Women vs IRE Women Betting Odds

After suffering an embarrassing loss in their preceding fixtures, both teams are eyeing a win. With that being said, we expect this to be a very tight contest. WI-W have a very impressive T20 world cup record compared to their rivals. They have been crowned as the champions back in 2016 and have made it to every semi-final round post 2010.

Meanwhile, Ire-W does not have such a prolific T20 world cup record. They have had to qualify on numerous occasions to make their presence felt in several T20 World Cup editions. Even after qualifying, they would get blown away, leading to their early exit. Furthermore, they have suffered 63 defeats in T20I and their win percentage is at an embarrassing low of 36%/

If we go by the performance of both sides in several T20 world cup editions, a win for WI-W is highly probable.

WI-W vs IRE-W Top Team Batsmen

The in-form Hayley Matthews, Shemaine Campbelle and the highly experienced Stafanie Roxann Taylor are our favourite batting picks for WI-W. Matthews has an impressive world cup record and has an uncanny knack for scoring runs on a consistent basis. Both Campbelle and Matthews looked confident at the crease and got some useful runs for their side in the opening game. Besides, with over 3000 T20I runs under her belt, we expect the highly experienced Stafanie to also chip in and play a blinder of an innings to help her side out of the misery. 

Gaby Lewis, Orla Prendergast and highly experienced Eimear Ann Jermyn Richardson are our favourite batting picks for Ire-W. The trio have played some game-changing innings in the past and if they can carry the same momentum to this fixture then we can surely expect Ire-W to post a big score. Gaby Lewis impressed us with the bat in the opening game with a well-calculated innings of 36(37). In their second game against Pak-W, Orla Prendergast stood up and scored a quick-fire 31(21) before going down in cheap fashion. Eimear Richardson has a very formidable T20I record with a career-best of 63*. If she finds her feat then we can expect her to utilize her experience to score some big runs for her side.

WI-W vs IRE-W Top Team Bowlers

Chinelle Henry, Hayley Matthews and Afy Fletcher are our favourite bowling picks for WI-W. Matthews’s ability is not only restricted to batting but she can bowl too. She picked up 14 wickets at an impressive average of just under 14 last year alone. Furthermore, Chinelle Henry is also one of the leading wicket-takers for WI-W and has impressed us in her opening game against Eng-W where she looked by far the most threatening bowler of the WI-W bowling lineup. Afy Fletcher hasn’t earned a wicket so far in this tournament yet but with over 50 T20I wickets and a sensational 5-wicket haul to her name, we expect her to fire at some point. 

Arlene Kelly, Laura Delany and Cara Murray are our favourite bowling picks. The trio have a combined bowling average of just under 30 and are among the leading wicket-takes for Ire-W in last year alone. Murray achieved figures of 3/15 in her opening game which substantially put Eng-W off course from their chase. Besides, Kelly and Delany are also in fine form and they too have the ability to strike on key occasions.

WI Women vs IRE Women Prediction

Both teams are pretty evenly placed at the points table in this year’s world cup edition. However, earlier records suggest that WI-W look like a far more experienced side than Ire-W. Unlike their rival, WI-W has all the experience they need to stage a remarkable turnaround hence a win for WI-W is certainly on the cards.
