WI-W vs ENG-W Live Score – ICC Women WC LIVE:

Heather Knight: I was going to have a bowl, so pretty happy with that. Quite English like conditions, overcast sky and it has been easier to chase. We have to assess the pitch and see what we are happy to chase. We bowled okay, not to the standards we set ourselves, our bowling group has been outstanding and not worried about them at all. We have had good experience of bowling really well here and hopefully we can make the most of the conditions. Exactly the same (team).

Stefanie Taylor: We will have a bat. Pitch looks good and runs on the board is runs on the board. It is a matter of learning from those mistakes. We know we didn’t do well in the field but today is a crucial game and we have to tighten up. We are still under the radar, it is a matter of us focusing on ourselves and even though we won that game, not to get ahead and play each game as a final. Same team.

West Indies will have to bring their A-game against England as the Heather Knight-led side will be seeking to get off the mark. Knight will have to address a few issues though. For starters, the bowling leaked a lot of runs. Kate Cross, Any Shrubsole, and Katherine Brunt had a rare off day.

All-rounder Nat Sciver was phenomenal with bat and ball, but she will need support from Knight, Sophie Dunkley, and Amy Jones. On the other hand, West Indies would be pleased with Deandra Dottin’s bowling returns and Matthews’ superb performance with the bat. Both players are crucial to the team and their contributions will be pivotal in West Indies’ progress in the showpiece event.
