A golden leaf will be added to the cricket history in Thailand as they take on the West Indies, making their debut in a cricket World Cup. The ICC 2020 Women’s T20 match between the West Indies and Thailand will be played at the WACA ground in Perth today (Saturday) from 12:30 pm India time.
The 2016 ICC Women’s World Cup champions West Indies will be gunning for glory. The team is upbeat by the return of their seasoned pro Deandra Dotting. The Caribbean women were eliminated in the semi-finals by Australia.
