West Indies Women (Match Odds – 3.40):


The West Indies women’s team has had a difficult year in 2022, particularly in one-day internationals. They have only won one game out of the last five they have played. However, playing at home will be an entirely different ballgame. The West Indies team will be confident of outperforming their opponents at home. The Caribbean women will also take heart from the fact that they defeated New Zealand women earlier this year in the women’s world cup.

For the first time, Hayley Matthews, the West Indies’ star all-rounder, will lead the team rather than Stefanie Taylor. Hayley Matthews has three one-day international hundreds, including one against New Zealand. What’s more, one of them was scored against the Kiwi women earlier this year in a world cup game. Deandra Dottin, on the other hand, will be sorely missed by the West Indian women. In August, she announced her unexpected retirement from international cricket. Others who will miss the ODI series include Anisa Mohammad and Kycia Knight.

Natasha McLean, the Windies wicketkeeper-batter, is making a comeback to the team. She will be a valuable addition to the team as a bat in the middle order. In terms of West Indian bowling, offspinner Sheneta Grimmond is the main wicket-taker for the Windies women. She is the bowler to keep an eye on. She returned figures of 2 for 22 for her team Trinbago Knight Riders in the CPL final for women. Even in the Sixty tournament, she was in good shape.

Full Squad:

Hayley Matthews(c), Shemaine Campbelle(w), Kyshona Knight, Stafanie Taylor, Natasha McLean, Shakera Selman, Chinelle Henry, Shamilia Connell, Afy Fletcher, Chedean Nation, Sheneta Grimmond, Karishma Ramharack, Rashada Williams, Shabika Gajnabi, Aaliyah Alleyne, Cherry Ann Fraser, Jannillea Glasgow

New Zealand Women (Match Odds – 1.32):


This year has been a mixed bag for the New Zealand women’s cricket team. They have played five one-day matches, winning two and losing the other three. This bilateral series will give the New Zealand women a chance to regain their winning ways in this format. Sophie Devine will lead the Kiwi women’s team once again in the series. The last time the two teams faced off, Devine smashed 108 runs off 127 balls. She is still the most important member of the team.

Sophie Devine has six ODI centuries from 128 matches and is currently averaging 31.02 runs per innings. Her partnership with Suzie Bates at the top of the order is critical to New Zealand’s chances in the series. Amelia Kerr, an all-rounder, is another player to keep an eye on. Kerr bats in the middle order and holds the record for the highest ever women’s ODI score of 232 not out. Lea Tahuhu is a New Zealand medium-pace bowler. She performed admirably at the Commonwealth Games earlier this year. She’s the type of bowler who would enjoy bowling in these conditions. New Zealand will also rely on fast bowlers Molly Penfold and Jess Kerr for early breakthroughs.

Full Squad:

Sophie Devine(c), Suzie Bates, Lea Tahuhu, Maddy Green, Hayley Jensen, Isabella Gaze(w), Hannah Rowe, Amelia Kerr, Lauren Down, Jess Kerr, Brooke Halliday, Fran Jonas, Molly Penfold, Georgia Plimmer, Eden Carson
