After a disappointing World cup campaign, West Indies women will look for a strong comeback in T20 series against the home side England. Though West Indies squad looks quite balanced, as they got good batsmen, bowlers and all-rounders in the side, they have struggled to consistently perform under pressure situation. Unlike England, Windies will be relying heavily on their key player and skipper Stafanie Taylor. She is playing a great all-rounder role for her team and leading from the front. In the recently concluded world-cup, she was Windies leading scorer with 84 runs from three games. Taylor is the most experienced T20 player; she played more than 100 T20 games and scored more than 3000 runs. Notably, Taylor holds a great record against England; scored 351 runs from 14 matches at an average of 31.90 and bagged 18 wickets as well.
Deandra Dottin will be another great all-rounder in the Windies side. She has played 113 T20 matches scoring 2380 runs and picked 59 wickets. Her experience will be very vital playing against formidable England team. Bowling unit will be lead by Shakera Selman and Aaliyah Alleyne. Bowling duo needs to be more accurate against strong batting lineup of England. They need to strike early to restrict the opponent from scoring a massive run. Anisa Mohammed and Stafanie Taylor will be the other bowling options for Windies.
Key Players: Stafanie Taylor, Deandra Dottin, Shakera Selman
Afy Fletcher, Lee Ann Kirby, Shamilia Connell, Britney Cooper, Chinelle Henry, Deandra Dottin, Shakera Selman, Aaliyah Alleyne, Shemaine Campbelle, Hayley Matthews, Stafanie Taylor
