Match Preview

It’s been an extremely similar pattern in both the games so far. England batting first, have put on competitive totals on a slowing surface and West Indies have fallen way short of it, never really being in the run chase at any point. The only minor difference being that the visitors had won the toss in the last game but opted to field due to the rain predictions. However, the showers never arrived and it meant a replica of the opening game. The pitches at Derby for the two games have been on the drier and side, and while West Indies’ bowlers adjusted better in the second game, the batters haven’t been able to.

England have exploited the home conditions on offer, the pacers and spinners both hitting uncomfortable lengths, and the Windies batters haven’t been able to deal with it. It was England’s lower order that saved them though, rescuing the side from a shaky 96/6 to a 150-plus total and West Indies will rue letting the hosts off the hook. The above-par total was always going to be tough to chase, and despite two Windies batters getting starts, they never got momentum and the innings just faltered away post their dismissals. Unless Stefanie Taylor’s girls get to bat first, more of the same can be expected in the coming games.

While their batting fortunes in the first game revolved around Tammy Beaumont’s anchor-knock, the second game saw most of their batters getting starts but not capitalising on them. They had slipped into a tricky position before Sarah Glenn and Katherine Brunt added precious runs to lift the total to a more than competitive margin. The pair added 46 off just 31 deliveries and it was at this point that West Indies lost grip of the game.

Glenn then returned with the ball to take out two scalps in a typically tidy spell to win the Player of the Match. Her strikes were crucial, as Deandra Dottin and Stefanie Taylor were setting up a platform for the finishers but before they could launch, she got them both in rather quick succession.

Barring Natalie Sciver, all the England bowlers were economical and choked the run flow. The hosts have been brilliant with the older ball in both the games so far, operating at accurate lines and lengths, maximising the slow and two-paced nature of the pitch. England is likely to go unchanged as they look to wrap up the series.

England Women Predicted Playing XI:

T Beaumont, D Wyatt, N Sciver, H Knight(c), A Jones(wk), F Wilson, K Brunt, S Glenn, S Ecclestone, M Villiers, A Shrubsole

West Indies Women Preview

Batting has been the main concern for them in this series. Their top-three comprises the world’s best all-rounders, all of whom are dynamic on their day and can win games single-handedly. But so far, only Deandra Dottin has stepped up in both the games and while she found zero support in one game, she and skipper Stefanie Taylor couldn’t convert their starts in the second game. The rest of the line-up has been negligible with barely any contributions at all. Nobody bar Dottin got to double digits in the first game while a similar story ensued in the second game where only Dottin and Taylor managed the feat. It tells a sorry tale for the batting unit and puts even more pressure on the top order who have looked to be conservative.

Chasing in both games hasn’t helped their cause either, as the conditions in the second half are considerably tougher. Taylor would have batted first in the previous game but the weather forecast suggested showers and she did the obvious of chasing. But such things backfire when the rain doesn’t arrive and that’s precisely what happened. The bowling at the death also has been a concern. They’ll need to improve drastically to make a comeback in the series.

H Mathews, D Dottin, S Taylor(c), L Kirby, S Campbelle(wk), C Henry, B Cooper, A Alleyne, S Selman, A Fletcher, S Connell

Weather Conditions

The forecast is for a clear day with no rain predictions at all. Cold temperatures and partial outbreaks of the sun are also on the radar. Another slow and dry surface is on the cards which means that the toss once again will play a pivotal role.

Venue Details

Derby has been a relevant venue in domestic cricket across formats and it’s occasional appearances in international cricket have been for limited-overs cricket.

Toss: To Bat

Batting first is a no-brainer, given the ever-slowing nature of the pitch. Chasing could be extremely tough unless the total is way below-par. Captains will definitely look to bat on winning the toss.

Winning Prediction

Form and momentum are both with England while West Indies continue to be plagued by rustiness and lack of confidence. We’re expecting the hosts to win this game and seal the series.
