Mumbai: Untouched by the hype and hoopla that follows their male counterparts, India's women cricketers are all set to start their World Cup campaign when they take on the West Indies in a Group A match in Mumbai on Thursday.

Group A matches are to be held in Mumbai's Brabourne Stadium, MIG Club at Bandra and the Bandra-Kurla Complex ground of the Mumbai Cricket Association.
