West Indies Women eyeing World Cup final spot
2013-02-12 13:57:43 | (0 Comments)
West Indies will try to confirm their spot in the final of the Women’s World Cup in India when they face Australia in a top-of-the-table Super Six match in Mumbai tonight Jamaica time.
It will be the final match in the Super Six phase for both teams.
Australia, who are leading the Super Six table with eight points – two ahead of West Indies – have already qualified for the February 17 final.
West Indies put themselves in a good position to qualify for the final following a 48-run victory over New Zealand yesterday.
The victory represents the first for the West Indies over New Zealand and puts the Caribbean side on the verge of joining Australia in the final.
West Indies’ victory also boosted the chance of defending champions England to qualify for the final.
The defeat brought New Zealand's net run-rate to 0.952 against 1.079 of England.
Third place England and fourth place New Zealand are locked on four points, two behind Jamaica.
For England to qualify on net run-rate, they must now beat New Zealand and hope Australia heavily beat West Indies.
The England/New Zealand game will be played following the clash between West Indies and Australia.
