India are clear favourites going into the game against Barbados. The Women in Blue have been one of the most consistent sides in international cricket and have the right balance in their squad.

Barbados have a bunch of talented players but will go into the games as underdogs. The hosts lack the pedigree needed to beat a strong Indian side.
