EN-W vs WI-W Dream11 Prediction
England will be taking on the West Indies later tonight as the five-game T20I series commences. All five games will be contested at the County Ground in the United Kingdom. However, the series will be quickly wrapped up within a matter of nine days. It's going to be a special viewing for cricket fans as the bilateral series will be the first women's cricket assignment ever since the 2020 ICC T20 World Cup in February. With men's cricket up and rolling, it was only a matter of time before the women got back in action. Star players such as Sophie Ecclestone, Stefanie Taylor, Nat Sciver, Deandra Dottin and plenty more could make an impact in the much anticipated game. With that being said, here is the Dream 11 Prediction for the fixture ahead.

Sophie Ecclestone can play a pivotal role with the ball in hand for England. Ecclestone scalped eight wickets from the four games in the T20 World Cup and is also the Number 1 bowler in the ICC Women's T20I Rankings.
Stefanie Taylor can pack a punch for the West Indies. Taylor has scored 351 runs and has also picked up 18 wickets from the last 14 games against England in T20Is.
Nat Sciver was the third highest scored in the T20 World Cup with 202 runs and an average of 67.33 from four games. She is expected to start for his side.
Deandra Dottin is one of the veterans in the West Indies outfit. Dottin has scored 2380 runs and has also scalped 50 wickets from 113 T20Is so far.
Heather Knight could contribute with some big hits for England, while fitting in at the middle order. Knight is on the back of some scintillating knocks of 91* and 67 in the Rachel Heyhoe Flint Trophy.
Who will win EN-W vs WI-W Today Match Prediction
Both sides have some quality players to rely on and we can expect it to be an exciting contest. England and the West Indies have been involved in some classing T20 encounters and resuming the women's cricket season with a five-match series could lead to some memorable moments. However, it's the England unit who seem to be more balanced in all three departments, which is why the today match prediction odds are in their favour to get the win.
