After losing the Twenty20 series, India Women began their one-day campaign in the Caribbean with a 76-run victory in St Kitts. India's bowlers had a modest total to defend but they bowled economically and incisively to dismiss West Indies Women in 46.5 overs.

Defending 180, Gouher Sultana conceded less one run per over to finish with figures of 9.5-3-9-2. Ekta Bisht was the most successful bowler, taking 3 for 18, and three others conceded less than three runs per over. Juliana Nero's 23 was the best score for West Indies as they were all out for 103.

It had seemed unlikely that India would get to their total of 179 for 7 after they had been reduced from 71 for 2 to 75 for 5. Their innings had been jolted by three wickets falling in the 27th over, two to Anisa Mohammed, who finished with 3 for 41, and one via a run-out. Mithali Raj and Amita Sharma restored stability, though, with a 74-run partnership. Raj made 57 and Sharma was unbeaten on 51 and they gave their bowlers a target that was eventually defended by a huge margin.
