Catch all the live action of India's second ICC Women's World Cup 2017 match of the group stage against West Indies in Taunton.Preview:India skipper Mithali Raj has said that the Indian team will go into the match against West Indies high on confidence following their big win over hosts England in their Women's World Cup tournament opener last Saturday.
The left-handed Mandhana hit 13 fours and two sixes in the knock from the 108 balls, as India recovered from two early dismissals to cruise to a comfortable win against their Caribbean opponents.
This is the second consecutive for India in this tournament. Top scoring for the West Indies was opener Hayley Matthews who made 43.
The West Indies, on the other hand, have suffered back to back defeats, having lost their opening tie to Australia.
The biggest issue facing the West Indian bowlers will be the ability to take more than a handful of wickets during the Indian batting innings, with Kohli, Rahane, Dhawan and plenty of others proving very hard to unseat and adept at scoring runs on the often uneven Caribbean surfaces. Punam Raut (86) and Smriti Mandhana (90) put on a 144-run opening stand that deflated the spirits of the English team.
For West Indies, Stefanie Taylor had figures of 1 for 24.
India boys will look to take a unconquerable 2-0 lead over the West Indies team in the 3rd ODI to be played in Antigua on Friday.
