Windies Women failed to match the England Women at any point in the ongoing ODI series as the visitors suffered back to back heavy defeats. The Caribbean team were thumped by 208 runs in the first ODI as they were bowled out for 110 chasing 319 to win. The second game was consistently interrupted by rain. Despite losing wickets regularly, the hosts finished with 233/7 in 41 overs.
The story of the first ODI with the bat repeated for the Windies Women who posted only 87/6 in 28 overs and fell 121 runs short of the revised target. The performances with both the bat and ball of the Windies skipper Stafanie Taylor are worrying the team. England has replaced Alex Hartley with Bryony Smith while Katherine Brunt and Natalie Sciver have been rested for the final ODI.
The 3rd and final game of the 3-match ODI series between England Women and Windies Women will be hosted by the New Road in Worcester.
The match starts at 2:00 PM local time (1:00 PM GMT) (6:30 PM IST). The game will be live on Sky Sports Mix in England.
Last five completed ODI matches:
England Women: W, W, W, W, W.
Windies Women: L, L, L, L, W.
With overcast conditions around, the New Road in Worcester witnessed a bit more seam movement than usual. With the ongoing week in the UK being under rain threat, the pitch and conditions for the 3rd ODI might not be any different from the 2nd game.
