If the ICC 2019 World Cup isn’t the only series you have been following, then you would know that England Women have been playing host to Windies Women and they recently completed a 3-match ODI series where ENG-W thrashed the visitors and completed a 3-0 whitewash including winning by 135 runs in the final ODI. Now, it’s the turn for a 3-match T20 series.
Both teams have maintained similar squads and while WI-W are clear underdogs, let’s not forget that Windies Women have been world champions in the past in the T20 format, so you wouldn’t want to rule them out completely. Keep reading for our complete DuggOut (sign-up to get Rs.50 FREE) fantasy preview of the ENGW vs WIW 1st T20…

Form (recent first)
- ENGW: W W W W W W W
- WIW: L L L L W W L
- England are 2nd in the ICC T20 Rankings.
- Windies are 4th in the ICC T20 Rankings.
- Heather Knight – 148 runs and 2 wickets in the ODI series.
- Afy Fletcher and Hayley Mathews – 6, 7 wickets each in the ODI series.
- Amy Ellen Jones – 189 runs in 3 games in the ODI series.
- WI Women lost the ODIs by 208, 121 and 135 runs.
This was a magical ODI series for Amy Ellen Jones. She ended as the top scorer of the ODI series and by a fair margin too. Pick her for sure as this form has been going on since a while now including a century and 2 fifties for Warwickshire Women last month in the Royal London Women’s competition. Sarah Taylor is a popular pick and while she isn’t at her prime best, she looked good in an innings of 70 in the ODI series and is the clear easy wicket-keeper pick.
Alex Hartley and Bryony Smith are the two to be left out for the T20I series while the veterans Katherine Brunt and Natalie Sciver return to the side. Another person to be added to the squad is Linsey Smith but it seems unlikely she will make the team for the 1st T20. Brunt should be a part of your team as she carries a lot o experience and Katie Cross is another bowler you can pick, being England’s highest wicket-taker in the ODI series – 5 scalps in 3 games.
While it was a horrible and pathetic series for Windies Women, Hayley Matthews was a huge positive and we can expect her to be even better when she plays her favourite T20 format. She also makes a good vice-captain pick as she bagged 7 wickets and scored 40 runs in the ODI series. Another brilliant all-rounder is the captain Stafanie Taylor, and both of them should be a part of your DuggOut (sign-up to get Rs.50 FREE) fantasy team.
It wasn’t the best of series for Taylor as she got only 2 wickets and 7 runs in 3 games, but we know what she’s capable of and since there won’t be too many fantasy teams picking her, you should for sure as she has been declared fit for this game. Another positive that came from that series was Chedean Nation, who ended as their top corer with 66 runs and one particularly impressive knock of 42*. With the ball, pick Afy Fletcher for sure.
