WI-W vs IR-W, Match 13: Top Five Picks

  1. Stafanie Taylor (WI-W): Veteran and experienced campaigner Stafanie Taylor is the leading run-scorer for West Indies in T20Is with 3166 runs in 111 innings. She scored 42 in the last game against India and would be looking to make a big contribution against Ireland.
  2. Shamine Campbelle (WI-W): Right-handed batter Shemaine Campbelle has got starts in both the games with scores of 34 against England and 30 against India. She would hope to convert the starts into a big score this time around.
  3. Hayley Matthews (WI-W): Skipper Hayley Matthews is the third highest run-getter for the Caribbean side in T20Is. She looked in good touch in the opening game with score of 42 off 30 against the English side. The opening batter will look to lead her side from the front with a significant score under her belt in this fixture.
  4. Gaby Lewis (IR-W): Right-handed opening batter Gaby Lewis has racked up the most runs for Ireland (1487) in T20 internationals. She scored 36 against England in the opening game as she looks a good option for this contest.
  5. Laura Delany (IR-W): Ireland captain Laura Delany has managed to score only 20 runs in 2 games so far in this WC. 35 runs short of the milestone 1000 T20I runs, Delany is due for a big score under her belt.
