It’s astonishing to see how much the Indian women’s cricket team has grown its quality. The squad on Wednesday won over West Indies by 15 runs in the third ODI to complete a 3-0 series whitewash.

The Indian women scored 199 runs for six wickets. It wasn’t a very smooth start for the Indian team and they couldn’t score big, but the West Indies women couldn’t even cross that target and went home with a score of 184 in 49.1 overs.
