AUSW vs INDW Team Previews
Australia continues to dominate in the World Cup, but this India matchup could be their toughest yet. Alyssa Healy has been an outstanding batter and is not only the highest scorer for the team with 146 runs, but one of the most consistent as well.
Surprisingly, Lanning (90 runs) and Mooney (78) are quite far behind Healy, but have still batted fantastically well.
Both Megan Schutt (eight wickets) and Ashleigh Gardner (seven wickets) have been the star bowlers for Oz, but have also managed not to give up too many runs. Schutt and Gardner will cause the most trouble when the Indian batters get to the crease.
Australia will remember beating India 4-1 in a five-game T20 series back in December 2022, and the Aussie team looks just as strong.
Australia Women Playing 11
Alyssa Healy, Beth Mooney, Meg Lanning, Ashleigh Gardner, Ellyse Perry, Tahlia McGrath, Grace Harris, Jess Jonassen, Georgia Wareham, Megan Schutt, Darcie Brown.
India had convincing victories over the West Indies, Pakistan, and Ireland, but despite an incredible 5/15 bowling performance from Renuka Singh against England, the team lost to the English by 11 runs. Batters Mandhana (52 runs) and Richa Ghosh (47 runs) were amazing, but the rest of the team just couldn’t help that much.
If India is to win, they need Mandhana to continue her incredible batting form, as she’s second in the tournament for total runs scored with 149. Her 87 runs against Ireland is a positive sign and she’ll be full of confidence in the Oz matchup. She does have help from Ghosh with 122 total runs, but Verma and Rodrigues need to do much more.
Singh (seven total wickets) and Sharma (five total wickets) have been bowling well enough, but can they outsmart very talented Aussie batters? We’re excited to see, but these two will have a very hard task of limiting easy runs from Healy, Lanning, and many other great Oz batters.
India Women Playing 11
Shafali Verma, Smriti Mandhana, Jemimah Rodrigues, Harmanpreet Kaur, Richa Ghosh, Deepti Sharma, Yastika Bhatia, Sneh Rana, Shikha Pandey, Radha Yadav, Renuka Singh.

AUSW vs INDW Betting Tips
The Betway odds suggest that Australia is the clear favourite, which is no surprise. But for this reason, betting on Oz isn’t particularly exciting for your money return as the odds are so low.
Even though Australia remains the team likely to win, there’s still a good chance for India and it’s worth betting on them because of the odds.
If Mandhana can reach 70-80 runs, with Singh helping to take major wickets, then India can certainly get the victory. India has proven they can win against Australia in the past, but this one won’t be easy.
Bet on India to win.
Bonus Cricket Bets
Healy’s odds are quite low despite being one of the top batters in the tournament, so it’s a good bet to make.
Mandhana is the most dangerous batter for India right now and she’s full of momentum.
A good option because of the many powerful hitters on this Aussie side.
