England Women will take on the West Indies Women in the 3rd game of the T20 series which will be played at the County Cricket Ground in Derby. This game is going to a DO or DIE game for the West Indies.
England Women have won both of the games so far in the series by a similar margin of 47 runs and they would like to garb the series by winning this game. They have some really good players in their ranks and would certainly want to dominate in this game as well whereas the West Indies have to win all three of their remaining games which is looking really unlikely.

5 Must-Have Players in the Squad
Stefanie Taylor, Natalie Sciver, Sophie Ecclestone, Hayley Matthews, and Danielle Wyatt.
EN-W vs WI-W Fantasy Wicket-Keeper
A Jones (Price 9) will be our wicket-keeper. Both the keepers won’t impact too much in this game as they will play in the lower middle-order. Jones is picked because she has scored 49 runs in the series so far and has been good behind the wickets as well.
EN-W vs WI-W Fantasy Batters
D Wyatt (Price 9) and T Beaumont (Price 8.5) will be our batters from England. Both of them will open the innings together for the side and are really good batters. Wyatt has not performed well in the series so far but has scored more than 1500 runs in her career and she can bowl some overs as well if required whereas Beaumont has scored 1345 runs in her T20 career and she played a brilliant inning of 62 runs in the first game of the series as well. Both of them should be picked for this game.
D Dottin (Price 9.5) will be our batter from the West Indies. Dottin is an experienced campaigner and has scored 107 runs till now in the series. She is a really good player who can bowl as well if needed.
EN-W vs WI-W Fantasy All-Rounders
N Sciver (Price 10) will be our all-rounder from England. Sciver is the best all-rounder of England and her numbers are illustrious as well. She has scored 1440 runs in 77 T20I games and has picked 60 wickets in her bowling as well. Sciver is struggling to find her form but she is a gun all-rounder and should be picked for this game.
S Taylor (Price 10) and H Matthews (Price 9) will be our all-rounders from the West Indies. Taylor is considered as one of the best players of the West Indies women’s cricket history. She has scored 3020 T20I runs in 105 games and has picked 93 wickets in her bowling as well whereas Matthews will open the innings for her side and will bowl his quota of overs too.

S Selman (Price 8.5) will be our bowler from the West Indies and will complete our team. Selman is an experienced player and she picked five wickets in this series as well to prove her class with the ball. She cannot be dropped from this game.
