The eighth edition of the T20 Women's WC is up and running with teams fighting to qualify for the next stages of the tournament.

With the likes of Amy Hunter (26 runs) and Orla Pendergast (26 runs) scored aggressively at the top order while Laura Delany played an anchoring knock of 32 runs against the Aussies. Their middle with the likes of Louise Little, Mary Waldron, Adrene Kelly, and Leah Paul played crucial cameos to take them across the line.

With the helping hands of Arlene Kelly (1/17) and Jane Maguire (0/13) bowled economically and kept the scoreboard in check. ENG-W's remaining bowlers gave runs at a high rate and were the stop the batters.

Match Prediction

The English side is a quality team that has had huge success in women's cricket. ENG-W has a good all-around team with good batting and bowling depth and balance. While Irish side stunned AUS-W in their warm game and it will give them massive confidence going ahead. But their bowlers lack depth as they rely on a few players only. We say England to dominate this game as well on Monday against Ireland.
