EN-W vs WI-W Dream 11 Prediction: Wiping the floor with a dwindling West Indies side in the first ODI, England look to seal the series come Sunday
England Vs West Indies Women Second ODI Best Dream 11 Team
The cricket summer couldn’t have gotten off in a more spectacular way for the England women cricket team. Registering their biggest ever win against West Indies, the home side bettered their 146 run win way back in 2019 with a 208 run trumping of the visitors.
More importantly, the win contributed a further two points to ICC Women’s Championship, a result which leaves the home side just a couple of wins away from ascertaining themselves of direct qualification to the 2021 ODI World Cup. And it was a performance which was a testament to just how strong they are as a cricketing country as they made light work of West Indies.
Putting on 318 while batting first, things only got better for England in the second innings. As West Indies catapulted, putting a calamitous show, England’s spinners made merry. The two rank turners in between them ended up taking 6 wickets each, decimating West Indies who collapsed for a shoddy 110.
England justified the faith we put in them the last time around and they are just such a strong and fine side that we don’t see them slipping up this time around either. Their captain had stressed upon the importance of being relentless throughout and replicating the same level of performance and we envision them to be at it again.
England captain Heather Knight: “We’ve talked about hitting the ground running. It’s not been a strength of ours in previous series so I’m chuffed. We want to keep improving as individuals and as a team and I think we’re doing that. It’s about the girls not in the team and in the squad pushing the players and pushing the standards even higher.”
England should win Sunday’s match and with it register an unassailable 2-0 lead in the 3 match series.
Wicket-Keepers for EN-W vs WI-W Dream 11
10 fours, 2 sixes and 91 runs in 99 innings. It was an innings which bespoke grace and class for England’s opener and wicket-keeper Amy Jones is going to walk into our side without any doubt for this clash.
Her counterpart Kycia Knight is going to be picked up by us as well. She might have succumbed for just 16 runs the last time around, but unlike the rest of the side she was willing to stick it around among a barrage of riveting bowling.
Batting-Order for EN-W vs WI-W Dream 11
England’s captain heather Knight is the second pick for us. She accompanied Amy perfectly the last time around with her 94 run innings matching Amy stroke for stroke. The two rotated strike with rapturous fluidity, keeping the run-rate moving throughout and she’s our first pick in this department.
Opener Beaumont will be her partner from England while West Indies will be represented by Chedean Nation.
All-Rounders for EN-W vs WI-W Dream 11
We are replicating the same two players who we had earmarked the last time around. Natalie Sciver was a real force with both the bat and ball, putting on a stellar display in both the facets and she comes in from England.
West Indies will continue to see opener and spinner Hayley Mathews come in. She was resilient in the face of adversary, showing reliance and we expect the star performer to put in yet another determined performance.
Bowling-Order for EN-W vs WI-W Dream 11
With six wickets in between them, both Sophie Ecclestone and Laura Marsh will come in for us. The overs by them wrecked havoc among a West Indian side renowned from their floundering touch infront of the slower bowlers. Giving away a meagre 6 runs from 5 overs along with picking up two wickets, Brunt will complete our three woman trio from the home side.
It’ll be Aly Fletcher from West Indies to complete our side.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Heather Knight will be our captain for the day while her compatriot Sophie Ecclestone is our vice-captain.
