The first T20I match of the series between England Women and West Indies Women is all set to be played at County Ground in Derby.
This match is scheduled to start at 6:00 PM Local Time (10:30 PM IST).
After a heartbreaking exit from the ICC T20 World Cup, England Women will look to make a fresh start when they host West Indies Women at Derby. This will be the first international match of the two women’s teams after the COVID-19 break. Sophie Ecclestone will hold the key to success for the hosts.
Ecclestone is the number one bowler in the ICC Women’s T20I Rankings for bowlers. The visitors will rest their hopes on skipper Stafanie Taylor who was their top run-scorer in the T20 World Cup. When the two teams met in the T20 World Cup, Nat Sciver’s 56-ball 57 had helped them win. The Caribbean bowlers will try to dismiss her early.
The skies will be foggy during the match time. There is a 10% chance of rain in Derby on Monday evening.
In the 29 T20 matches played at this venue, the teams have managed to cross the 200-runs mark thrice. Since this a Women’s T20I match, 150-160 will be a par score on this surface. The fast bowlers will likely get some help from the pitch.
