Confident West Indies Women would be up against England Women in the 7th game of the ICC Women's World Cup 2022. England Women would start their campaign in this game and the side did well to win both its warmup games. West Indies Women have earned their first points of the tournament defeating hosts New Zealand Women in a nailbiting contest.
England Women have enjoyed a good record against West Indies women in recent years and have won the last five games between the two sides. They have players well-suited for these conditions and it would be a massive challenge for their opponents. West Indies Women have a strong batting line-up and this is expected to make this game interesting.
Stafanie Taylor’s side surprised everyone in the first game. It was a great effort from their bowlers towards the end of the innings against New Zealand Women that saw the side winning by 3 runs. They haven’t defeated England Women for a while and Taylor would like to carry on with the momentum and change it here in this game.
Haley Matthews hit a brilliant hundred in the last game and she will look to set up a good partnership with Deandra Dottin. In the middle order Taylor, Shemaine Campbelle, and Kycia Knight need to convert their starts into big scores. The side has powerful hitters down the order in Chedean Nation and Chinelle Henry and they would need to add runs down the order as England has a strong bowling attack.
The side would look for early wickets in this game from Shamilia Connell and Henry who made good use of the new ball in the last game. Matthews and Aaliyah Alleyne also bowled well and this will add to the side’s confidence. They would expect good spells from Anisa Mohammed and Shakera Selman in this game.

Heather Knight would go into this game with confidence high. Her side is one of the favorites to win the tournament and they did well in the two warmup games to live up to this reputation. They have strengths both with the bat and the ball and the side would be aiming to get their first points of the tournament in this game.
Lauren Winfield Hill and Tammy Beaumont have done well as an opening pair and they shall look to set up a good opening wicket stand in this game. Natalie Sciver, Knight, and Amy Ellen Jones make it a rock-solid middle order, and runs would be expected from their bats. Down the order, Sophia Dunkley and Danielle Wyatt shall be expected to add quick runs in this game.
The new ball pair of Katherine Brunt and Anya Shrubsole is in good form and this would add to the side’s confidence.

There are predictions for rains on March 09. Batting conditions are expected to be challenging as we have already seen on this wicket. Bowlers would get assistance from the wicket right from the start. A score of 240 runs or more would be a fighting total under such conditions.
University Oval, Dunedin is a good ODI surface where batters and bowlers have done well in the past. The ball comes to the bat nicely and allows batters to play their strokes. Fast bowlers get a lot of swing and bounce on this track. However, spinners have to rely only on their skills on this track.
Bowlers are likely to enjoy the conditions at this venue and it will be difficult to score runs against the new ball. The wicket eases as the game progresses. Hence, the side winning the toss in this game would have little hesitation in opting to bowl first in this game.
West Indies Women have started the tournament well but the side has struggled with its consistency in the past. Their bowlers would have to make good use of the conditions for the side to win this game. England Women are a good side and have lots of experience in both departments of the game. This would make them favorites here.
