Welcome to Sportstar's coverage of the 2022 ODI Women's World Cup [CWC 2022]. This is Lavanya Lakshmi Narayanan bringing you the latest from the WC game between West Indies and Australia in Wellington on Tuesday.

Stafanie Taylor:
 It is not the best batting display from us. As a group we pride ourselves whenever we go out there to bat. We did not assess the conditions well. Losing early wickets put a dent in the batting. Wish I had somebody with me to build a big partnership. We spoke about that, 130 is way below-par, I thought the bowling group did really well. We still have 3 games to go, we have to go back to the drawing board, regroup and we move on.

Meg Lanning: That's the beauty of our squad, we have got such great depth, anyone who comes in makes an impact on the game. Early wickets upfront today made a difference and put them under pressure. With the ball they play a little bit differently to how other attacks do - they open with spin, have some pretty clear plans, they kept it tight and made it difficult for us. I thought Rach and Moons at the back end did extremely well, losing early wickets is not ideal but what we have shown is that it gives a chance for us to rebuild and then really push towards the end. Not sure to be honest, we played New Zealand last year for three overs and we did not get to see what the ground did. It's an amazing stadium and it's a big game against India, really excited about the chance to play at Eden Park.

How teams have fared in WCs so far:

Australia

The most successful nation in ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup history, Australia have lifted the trophy six times and won 70 of their 84 matches along the way.

Victory on home soil in 1988 was Australia’s third in a row and the star bowler from that all-conquering era, Lynn Fulston, remains the competition’s leading overall wicket-taker with 39 to her name.

More recently, Karen Rolton’s fine form with the bat in 2005 earned her the Player of the Tournament prize while Meg Lanning averaged 82.00 in 2017.

West Indies

The best of West Indies’ six ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup performances to date came in 2013, when they progressed all the way to the final only to be beaten by Australia.

Two players, Stafanie Taylor and Deandra Dottin, were named in the Team of the Tournament – the former has scored more runs and taken more wickets for her country than anyone else in the competition’s history.

3 AM: Hello everyone! The 12th edition of the Women's Cricket World Cup is finally underway in New Zealand. The tournament which was initially scheduled to be played in February - March 2021, was postponed by a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Match #13 will see tournament favourite Australia take on West Indies.
