to see players
The mid-order, right-handed racquet from England won the Player of the Match award in the inaugural ODI against the West Indies. She muscled 90 of 96, including nine punches at the fence. The prolific batter kept the batting innings together as she was in the middle from the seventh through the 40th over. With the ball, she conceded 20 runs in four overs.
England’s wily right arm off-spinner was the beachcomber in the first ODI against the West Indies. She earned her fourth four-wicket pull in ODIs when she batted 35/4 in nine overs, including a double in the 36th over. With the racquet, she scored seven instead of six and can be useful further down the line.
The West Indies’ wicket-keeper and left-handed top-order batter fought hard for her 39/61 in the first ODI against England. The southpaw smashed the boundary rope four times in her dismal innings. Behind the stumps she made a few catches. She had a good outing with a bat and gloves.
The West Indies right arm rapid was her side’s most successful bowler in the first ODI against England. She opened the bowling and scored 59/3 in 10 overs, including a maid. She was effective with the new ball and at the business end of the innings.
It will be the second game of the series at this venue. 472 runs were scored in the last game. 17 wickets fell. The wicket looks good for batting. There is something on the court for the bowlers, however, provided they hit the right belts consistently.
The weather is supposed to be partly sunny and nice. The daily maximum temperature is 29 degrees Celsius. There will be 35 percent cloud cover and a two percent chance of rain. The wind will blow from the north.
