The opening T20I went as expected. One side has been on the rise in recent times, while the other continues to struggle.

England, led by the classy Tammy Beaumont, had a comfortable outing first up. It is quite scary to think that the home side won so comfortably even though star players Natalie Sciver and Heather Knight didn’t make big runs, which is another warning sign for West Indies. Other than star Deandra Dottin, no other West Indian batswoman provided any resistance, which is something they must change if they wish to level the series. In addition, their fielding is in need of improvement, after missing a host of chances in the first T20I, particularly against Beaumont.

Key Players to Watch/Key Stats

  • Tammy Beaumont enjoyed life at the top of the order, after spending time at number six earlier in 2020. She hit a classy 62 (49) in the opening match, which included an array of beautiful drives.
  • Natalie Sciver’s 2/16 last game shows the value she provides with both bat and ball. Also, Sciver scored three half centuries in four innings in the T20 World Cup earlier this year. A key player.
  • Heather Knight has a great record this year (394 runs, avg. 49.48, SR 139.22), and one feels it is only a matter of time before she makes a strong score this series. Her 25 (17) last game was promising.
  • Deanda Dottin’s 69 was the only bit of positivity in the West Indies’ batting display last game. No other player reached double figures. Dottin now has the most runs in England-West Indies T20Is (370, avg. 24.67).
  • Stafanie Taylor must step up. She has the second-most runs in England-West Indies T20Is (359, avg. 29.92), as well as the most wickets (20).
  • Anya Shrubsole went wicketless and was expensive in the opening T20I (0/36). However, she has the second-most wickets in England-West Indies T20Is (14), and took eight wickets in four games at the T20 World Cup.
  • Sophie Ecclestone’s 2/19 was another chapter in her excellent career to date. She has a total of 52 wickets in 35 T20s, including 15 wickets in nine T20Is in 2020.
  • Can Afy Fletcher bounce back with wickets in this match? She has taken six wickets vs England at a strike rate of 18.
  • Shakera Selman was the star bowler for West Indies last match, taking 3/26. Nine of her 45 career wickets have come against England (14 matches against them).
  • Sarah Glenn has taken six wickets in her last three T20Is.

ENG-W vs WI-W 2nd T20I Preview Dream11: Heather Knight is having a great year.

Stats and Facts

  • England have beaten West Indies convincingly twice in 2020 (46 runs and 47 runs).
  • England have won their last three completed T20Is vs West Indies.
  • Deandra Dottin scored 69 of West Indies’ 116/6 in the 1st T20I. The next highest scorer was extras with 17. A sorry story for West Indies.
  • Amy Jones’ has scored 23* (13) and 24 (16) in her last two T20Is vs WI, both in the middle order. So, she looks to be a key finisher for England.

Possible Playing 11

England have a winning formula they may not look to change just yet.

England: 1. Tammy Beaumont, 2. Danielle Wyatt, 3. Natalie Sciver, 4. Heather Knight (c), 5. Fran Wilson, 6. Amy Jones (wk), 7. Katherine Brunt, 8. Mady Villiers, 9. Anya Shrubsole, 10. Sophie Ecclestone, 11. Sarah Glenn

West Indies need a better effort from their batters. The likes of Chedean Nation are in the squad, which will keep the middle order players on notice.

West Indies: 1. Hayley Matthews, 2. Deandra Dottin, 3. Stafanie Taylor (c), 4. Lee-Ann Kirkby, 5. Shemaine Campbelle (wk), 6. Britney Cooper, 7. Chinelle Henry, 8. Aaliyah Alleyne, 9. Shamilia Connell, 10. Afy Fletcher, 11. Shakera Selman

County Ground Derby Pitch and Weather Report

The Derby track was slightly on the slower side in the first T20I. A similar paced pitch can be expected for this match. However, if the batters are willing to play themselves in, there are certainly runs on offer.

There is rain forecast during the day in Derby, and there is a chance that it will rain during the game. If there is rain around/during the game, the captain who wins the toss could look to chase.

Match Prediction

West Indies need Stafanie Taylor and Deandra Dottin to perform with the bat. If they can, then they are a chance of levelling the series. However, England are a more well-rounded side, and look good to win again.
