Skipper Mithali Raj, featuring in her last World Cup tournament, smashed a 73-ball 71 to help India post 281, which proved too much in the end for the hosts. Skipper Stafanie Taylor - arguably the best all-rounder in the game - former skipper Merissa Aguilleira, who is swift behind the wickets and Hayley Matthews' experience could create problems for the Indians. India had crushed West Indies by 105-runs in the 2nd in Port of Spain after the series opener at Qeen's Park Oval got rained off only after 39 overs of the play. Eventually India have 2 wins in as many outings. Her 108-ball innings was studded with 13 boundaries and two sixes. While WI's scored a fair figure of 69 for 1 but successively remained crawling with 5 wickets down in just 22 runs.

Openers Smriti Mandhana and Poonam Raut are expected to give India an explosive start.
