Toss Winner - New Zealand Women won the toss and chose to bowl first

New Zealand Women beat West Indies Women by 6 wickets

West Indies will severely miss the services of star all-rounder Stafanie Taylor who has been ruled out of the first two T20Is of the series.

  • The spinners from both the sides have been really good on this pitch.
  • New Zealand’s batters failed to chase down a modest target in the first T20I.
  • This will be another low-scoring encounter and a total above 130 will be challenging.

The T20I series between West Indies Women and New Zealand Women got off to a cracking start as the home side clinched a 1-run win in a thrilling encounter. After losing the ODI series, West Indies Women appear to have found their footing in the shortest format. The Kiwis put up a surprisingly poor batting display and would be eager to correct their ways in the next match.

West Indies Women Preview

West Indies Women have now won two back-to-back matches against New Zealand Women in the limited-overs series – the 3rd and final ODI and the first T20I. They have the momentum with them and would be looking to build on that. The West Indies batters once again struggled to make a decent score on this pitch and were bundled out for 115 in 20 overs. Aaliyah Alleyne top-scored with a gutsy 49 off 37 balls, but hers was the only notable performance.

Thankfully, West Indies were terrific with the ball and kept a tight leash on the opposition batters. Chinelle Henry was the star of the show taking 3-26 in her 4 overs. Leg-spinner Afy Fletcher (2-18 off 4 overs) and off-spinner Karishma Ramharack (1-15 off 4 overs) impressed again. The two spinners will play a pivotal role throughout the series.

West Indies Women Predicted Playing XI:

Hayley Matthews (c), Kyshona Knight, Natasha McLean (wk), Shakera Selman, Chinelle Henry, Afy Fletcher, Chedean Nation, Karishma Ramharack, Rashada Williams, Shabika Gajnabi, Aaliyah Alleyne

New Zealand Women Preview

New Zealand Women would be disappointed with their performance in the 1st T20I. Chasing a modest target, their batting unit crumbled and couldn’t get past the line. Captain Sophie Devine’s 23 off 18 balls was the only notable contribution from the top and middle-order. Hannah Rowe’s fantastic cameo of 27* off 21 balls helped the Kiwis reach close but it wasn’t enough. But the Kiwis shouldn’t be too concerned as the likes of Suzie Bates, Amelia Kerr, and Maddy Green are likely to come good soon.

New Zealand’s bowling in this series has been really impressive. Left-arm spinner Fran Jonas was terrific in the powerplay and returned with figures of 2-13 in 4 overs. Amelia Kerr (3-16 off 4 overs) and Devine (2-15 off 3 overs) were excellent as well. The team might be tempted to try Jess Kerr, the leading wicket-taker in the ODI series, in the next match.

New Zealand Women Predicted Playing XI:

Suzie Bates, Sophie Devine (c), Amelia Kerr, Lea Tahuhu, Maddy Green, Hayley Jensen/ Jess Kerr, Isabella Gaze (wk), Hannah Rowe, Lauren Down, Georgia Plimmer, Fran Jonas

Weather Conditions

The pitch at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium has proven to be slow and two-paced. It isn’t an ideal T20 pitch as the ball grips and doesn’t come on easily to the bat. The batters will struggle to score freely again while the spinners and the slower bowlers will have a great time.

The weather in Antigua on the day of the game will be pleasant and cool.

Venue Details

128 is the average total by the team batting first at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium. We have already seen how tough it is for batters to get going on this surface and post big scores. A total of around 140 by the team batting first will be a winning one.

Toss: To Bowl

The team winning the toss is likely to choose to bat second.

West Indies Women have made a solid comeback after losing the first two ODIs in this limited-overs series. However, their batting woes have still not been sorted and the absence of Stafanie Taylor will hurt them. New Zealand had an off day with the bat but they should be able to make a comeback. Their bowling has been fantastic, but the onus will now be on their middle-order to make some healthy contributions.

Back New Zealand Women to win the 2nd T20I.
