WIW vs IREW: Match Overview
West Indies Women
A series victory for the West Indies Women is just one victory away. Starting straight away, they completely dominated the guests. The Windies finished their first innings with a decent total of 297 thanks in large part to a standout hundred by Hayley Mathews (109 off 106), who also shone with the bat in the previous match. Later, the West Indies Women's team captain continued bowling, taking three wickets to keep Ireland well below their goal.
On the other hand, Ireland Women immediately appeared to be highly rough. In the first ODI, they put in only a mediocre effort with the ball and let up a huge score of 297, which was clearly out of their league.
Additionally, in the second ODI, which was postponed due to rain, the top and middle order performed terribly, losing half their team for just 36. Despite putting on such a terrible show with the bat, they were able to escape without suffering any consequences. They confront the daunting challenge of facing off against one of the top women's cricket teams as they get to the final stretch of the series.
Here is everything you need to know about the third and last ODI of the series as we enter this game-or-die situation.

WIW vs IREW: Pitch report
We anticipate the ground to retain a significant amount of moisture on match day due to the overnight rain. As a result, it will be perfect for swing bowling, and bowlers will benefit if they place the ball in the proper location. The early stages of the game will be challenging for batters to navigate.
As the game goes on, the surface can become slightly slower, including spinners into the mix. Any score in the range of 250 to 299 ought to be challenging on this track.
WIW vs IREW: Weather report
The likelihood of impending precipitation has decreased to 20% at this point, thus the weather will gradually get better. The majority of the time, the sky will be partly cloudy, and it will be between 29 and 25 degrees Celsius outside.
The pitch that has been created at Darren Sammy National Cricket Stadium will host an exciting clash between bat and ball. The weather for Thursday indicates that there will be clear skies in the evening.
The Daren Sammy Cricket Stadium's surface is evenly spaced out and offers bowlers and hitters a variety of options. Windy weather will allow seam bowlers to add some swing and movement off the air. Tenacious batters will eventually benefit, even if it won't be straightforward to score runs initially. The surface's grip will be advantageous to spin bowlers as well.
WIW vs IREW: Toss prediction
Both teams will be driven to win the crucial toss, bowl first, and keep the opposition's score below 115 runs. The first game at St. Lucia was won by the team batting second. Gros Islet can have a few brief periods of wind and rain throughout the game. The team that wins the toss usually chooses to field first in order to take advantage of this and make a good first impression.
