India Women are in top form and easily the favorites to win this tournament. Facing Malaysia may not seem much of a threat given their depth, and the upcoming game promises to be a really big mis-match, with a one-sided result likely.

Jemimah Rodriguez provided a strong showing on her comeback from injury. After missing some games for India, she is eager to cover up for the lost time as she saved India, from a tough situation against Sri Lanka. With her return, the top-order looks a lot stronger, helping India’s batting depth increase.
Winifred Duraisingam, Malaysia’s captain is a talented cricketer and has a chance to make a statement on the big stage. With high profile matches ahead a run of good scores will do her career a lot of good.
Unless Malaysia have something really drastic and surprising up their sleeves, an Indian win seems the only outcome.
