EN-W Vs WI-W Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11, Toss, Pitch And Match Report: Must win encounter for West Indies as they look to keep themselves alive in the frontier tournamnet
For both England and West Indies, today’s encounter in Group B of the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup will be a defining moment for the countries. Where a win for England would assure them of a spot in the semi-finals, for West Indies, a defeat would all but mean the culmination of their chances of progressing from the group.
Defeated by Pakistan in their previous encounter after they lost their way with the bat, West Indies pulled off a chastening display. The 8 wicket defeat was vindictive of why the side has struggled to make a name for itself in the cricketing arena with the side once again failing to unlock its true potential with the bat to fold out its effort for just 124.
Elsewhere, England trounced Pakistan by a colossal 42 runs to recover from their defeat to South Africa and make it two wins on the bounce. In second place, the side will be looking to pull off a pulsating win today, one which would not only take it to the ensuing round but also see them snap at South Africa’s heels for a spot in the pinnacles of the group.
EN-W Vs WI-W Probable Winner
West Indies showed in their previous encounter why they have never been able to make a place for themselves in the annuls of the fraternity. Inconsistency has been a massive issue for them and on a surface where the runs will be sticky to rummage by, the English should be able to refrain West Indies from launching a series challenge with the bat.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
Not the easiest of surface too bat on, this is a spin conducive wicket, one which will play in favour of the rank turners. The ball turns, grips, frisks around and stays low with chasing a travesty as the slower bowlers rip into the batters, a track where the team winning the toss will be looking to set a target.

EN-W Vs WI-W Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
Her side’s top scorer with 43 runs the last time around, West Indies’ wicket-keeper, Shemaine Campbelle will be our side’s wicket-keeper for this clash. She showed fortitude and grit in a collapsing batting unit to see her side squirm past 100 to make her our selection for the day.
EN-W Vs WI-W Dream11 Batswomen
West Indies’ opener Lee-Ann Kirby spent a short time out in the middle the last time around but the 16 runs she scored were more than enough to see us repose faith in her for this outing. She hit a couple of dazzling boundaries in that knock, ones which saw her showcase her skill set as an explosive bat.
With a role with both the bat and ball, Hayley Matthews comes in as well from the unit while from the English setup we’ll be divulging in the services of the myriad Heather Knight who struck a ravishing 47 ball 62 knock the last time around.
EN-W Vs WI-W Dream11 All-Rounders
West Indies’ captain Stefanie Taylor has time and time again showed why she’s the fulcrum of her side’s unit. She waged a lone battle with the bat to put on 43 runs along with picking up the one wicket as well to make her a regulation selection for the fixture.
Elsewhere, England’s reply to Taylor, Natalie Sciver scored 36 runs against Pakistan to show why she’s one of the most coveted names in the cricketing arena to see us bring her in from the side.
EN-W Vs WI-W Dream11 Bowling Order
On a wicket where the ball will immersive misbehave in the hands of the spinners, England’s Sophia Ecclestone made for a must have pick. She took two wickets in the previous tie to show why she’s such a tricky bowler to face off against and looks set to leave a paper thin West Indies batting unit in plight as well.
With three wickets apiece in the previous encounters, both Anya Shrubsole and Sarah Glenn come into our side as well. Elsewhere from West Indies we are going in for the diminutive and dynamic partnership of Shakera Selman and Afy Fletcher, two players capable of snaring wickets at regular intervals.
Captain And Vice-Captain
England Bat First: Their all-round ability sees us make Sciver our captain while Taylor is the vice-captain.
West Indies Bat First: Knight will captain our side while Ecclestone is the vice-captain.
