West Indies Women are set to host New Zealand Women for the first time in 8 years for a white ball series, featuring 3 ODIs and 5 T20Is. The last time both sides had a clash in a bilateral series was way back in 2014. The three-match ODI series begins on the 16th of September.

West Indies Women Preview

West Indies Women haven’t had the greatest of years in ODIs – they have won only one match out of the last 5 they have played. However, playing at home, they will be confident of a better performance. They will also take heart from the fact that they beat the Kiwis in their Women's World Cup clash earlier this year.

Star all-rounder Hayley Matthews will be leading the side for the first time instead of Stafanie Taylor. Matthews has three ODI hundreds to her name, including one against New Zealand in the World Cup this year. The team will miss the services of Deandra Dottin, who announced her shock retirement in August, and Anisa Mohammed and Kycia Knight, who are missing the ODI series. Wicketkeeper-batter Natasha McLean has made a return to the ODI side and will be an important part of the middle-order.

In the bowling department, off-spinner Sheneta Grimmond will be the one to watch out for. She claimed 2-22 for Trinbago Knight Riders in the victorious CPL final and has also been in great form in the 6ixty.

West Indies Women Predicted Playing XI:

Hayley Matthews (c), Kyshona Knight, Stafanie Taylor, Jannillea Glasgow, Natasha McLean (wk), Chinelle Henry, Chedean Nation, Aaliyah Alleyne, Shamilia Connell, Afy Fletcher, Sheneta Grimmond

New Zealand Women Preview

New Zealand Women have played 5 ODIs this year, winning 2 and losing 3. This series will be a chance for them to get back into some form in the format.

The experienced Sophie Devine will again lead the side in the series. Devine, who smashed 108 off 127 balls the last time these two sides met, will be their most important player for the team. The opener has 6 hundreds in 128 ODIs and an average of 31.02. Her partnership with Suzie Bates at the top will be crucial for the team’s chances.  All-rounder Amelia Kerr will the one to watch out for in the middle order. Her 232* is the highest individual score in women’s ODI history.

Medium-pacer Lea Tahuhu, who was in great form in the Commonwealth Games this year, should enjoy bowling on these wickets. The team will also depend on fast bowlers Jess Kerr and Molly Penfold to get them early wickets.
 

New Zealand Women Predicted Playing XI:

Sophie Devine (c), Suzie Bates, Amelia Kerr, Lauren Down, Lea Tahuhu, Maddy Green, Brooke Halliday, Isabella Gaze (wk), Jess Kerr, Molly Penfold, Hannah Rowe

Weather Conditions

This is the first match of the series and the pitch at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium will be fresh and hard. It should favor the batters early on but can help the slower bowlers as it slows down a little.

A few showers are expected in Antigua on the day of the match, so we might have a shortened game.

Venue Details

The average score batting first at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium is 239. The highest total achieved on the venue is 322-6 by Australia. The team batting first in this match will look to set a target of around 280 runs.

Toss: To Bowl

The team winning the toss will look to bat first.

New Zealand Women have won 4 of the last 5 ODIs they have played against West Indies Women. New Zealand's women last toured West Indies in 2014, when they lost the ODI series 4-0. West Indies will hence have an edge as they are playing at home. Both the teams haven’t played an ODI match since March this year and are expected to be a little rusty. New Zealand’s batting is pretty strong, but West Indies have a solid all-round unit.
