It has been a complete dominance from the visitors so far on this tour. Amy Jones and co. have outplayed the hosts in all the 3 ODI matches. And it looks unlikely that Windies Women would stop the English juggernaut.

Amy Jones led the team to a 151-run win over West Indies in the 3rd ODI in the absence of regular skipper Heather Knight. Jones is a reliable lower-order batter who will be key to England’s batting in the T20Is as well.

For West Indies, Rashada Williams and Hayley Matthews are the only hope in the batting department. No other batters showed any promise during the recent ODI series. 

The 1st T20I of the 5-match series will be played in Antigua at the same venue where the ODIs were played. The T20I stats don’t speak highly of this ground from a batter’s perspective.

England won’t be much worried about it since they have a deep batting lineup with many in-form and consistent players.

West Indies Women Preview

Hayley Matthews will be hoping for a turnaround from her team as the hosts take on a mighty England side in the 1st T20I in Antigua.

After the first game of the series, the team will be travelling to Barbados where the rest of the matches will be played. The skipper will be eager to start the T20Is on a winning note.

And that will take some special effort as the opposition has outperformed the Windies Women in every aspect of the game so far. 

Openers Hayley Matthews and Aaliyah Alleyne will be the key players for West Indies Women. Rashada Williams who made significant contributions in the ODIs is another batter to watch out for.

She usually bats lower down the order in T20Is but West Indies can think of promoting her up the order at number 4. The hosts would also expect a better performance from wicket-keeper batters Kycia Knight and Chedean Nation.

The lowest total at this venue in T20Is belongs to West Indies Women. The 2016 T20 World Cup winners were bowled out for 71 runs against Australia back in 2018.

However, recently, the hosts registered a new record to their name. West Indies Women defended 115 runs against New Zealand, the lowest score to be defended at this venue.

Karishma Ramharack, Aly Fletcher, Chenille Henry, and skipper Hayley Matthew will be leading the West Indies bowling attack.

West Indies Women Predicted Playing XI:

Hayley Matthews (c), Aaliyah Alleyne, Kycia Knight (wk), Rashada Williams, Kyshona Knight, Shemaine Campbelle, Chedean Nation, Chinelle Henry, Cherry Ann Fraser, Kaysia Schultz, Shakera Selman

England Women Preview

Heather Knight would be leading a strong overall T20 squad against West Indies women in a 5-match T20I series. Her team has dominated the hosts in every department and will carry the momentum in the T20Is as well.

Both Beaumont and Emma Lamb who opened the innings in the ODIs are not included in the T20I squad. While these two wicket-keeper batters are let go, England have brought in Lauren Winfield-Hill into the side.

Another important addition to the England squad is bowling all-rounder Katherine Brunt. Danielle Wyatt and Sophia Dunkley would likely open the innings for England in this match.

The two were seen in this role during the Commonwealth Games 2022. With no Capsey in the T20I squad, England Women would have a new number 3 in their lineup.

The middle order would probably feature Heather Knight, Nat Sciver, and Amy Jones. These three have a crucial role to play in England’s innings whether they bat first or second. 

Maia Bouchier and Katherine Brunt who are back in the side for the T20Is are handy lower down the order. They can add quick runs at number 6 and 7 adding depth to this batting lineup.

Sophie Ecclestone, Katherine Brunt, and Charlotte Dean are the impact bowlers in this squad. Brunt and Ecclestone are reliable wicket-takers.

England Women Predicted Playing XI:

Heather Knight (c), Maia Bouchier, Sophia Dunkley, Natalie Sciver, Katherine Brunt, Danielle Wyatt, Amy Jones (wk), Sophie Ecclestone, Charlotte Dean, Kate Cross, Freya Davies

Weather Conditions

There is help for both batters and bowlers on this pitch. Traditionally, the pitch has helped the batters in the second half of ODI games as it becomes entirely flat and scoring runs becomes easier. It will be a run-fest if England bats first. The weather is expected to be sunny throughout the day and clear in the evening as well with a high of 28 degrees Celsius.

Venue Details

Sir Viv Richards Stadium in Antigua will host the first T20I of this series. The average 1st innings total at this venue in Women’s T20Is is 114 runs. The highest total recorded at this ground was 165 runs by South Africa Women against the hosts.

Toss: To Bat

Teams batting first have won 6 of the 12 Women’s T20Is played at this venue. As was seen in the recent ODIs, chasing a total at this ground isn’t easy. Both teams would prefer to bat first and give themselves the best chance of winning this match.

The visitors have momentum on their side after a complete domination in the ODI series. The hosts have almost no one to rely on in the batting department and will be hoping for the bowlers to give them an upper hand in the contest. England Women have a much stronger overall squad and will start as favourites in our match prediction. 

Our prediction is for England Women to win the match
