India will have much to be proud of after their ODI series disaster in New Zealand. In their first ICC Women’s World Cup warm-up match against South Africa, the Indians recorded a 2-point win. The Indian women face the West Indies women’s team in the second and final warm-up match before the highly anticipated ICC Women’s World Cup tournament.

Earlier, India suffered a humiliating 4-1 defeat at the hands of New Zealand in the 5-game ODI series. The Indian women’s team saved their blushes by winning the final game to save themselves from a humiliating sweep by the Kiwi opponents.

India, who would be chasing their maiden title this year, will be desperate to say goodbye to legends like Mithali Raj and Jhulan Goswami who will be contesting their final World Cup this year.
