WI-W vs SA-W Dream11 Match Prediction | Who Will Win Today match
Barbados, September 16 at 7:00 PM IST
Windies Women take on South Africa Women in the first of three ICC Women’s Championship ODIs at Kensington Oval in Bridgetown.
The last time the two sides met in South Africa, Windies Women came out on top to register a 2-1 win over the hosts. The home team would want to start the series on the winning note, looking to replicate the performances.
The visiting South African unit would look to the experienced campaigners such as Dane van Niekerk, Marizanne Kapp, Chloe Tryon and Mignon du Preez for an inspired show away from home. Skipper Dane van Niekerk admitted “a tough and challenging tour” but expressed optimism over their chances.
Pitch and conditions: Kensington Oval in Bridgetown has produced high-scoring games in the recent International encounters. Speaking of the weather, it will be hot and humid and could offer assistance to slow bowlers.
Last ODI result at the venue: England 328 beat West Indies 142, 3rd ODI, England tour of West Indies at Bridgetown, 9th March 2017
Here’s how the two sides may lineup for Windies Women vs South Africa Women clash
Windies Women Playing 11:
Wicket-keeper – Merissa Aguilleira
Batswomen – Kycia Knight, Chedean Nation (Doubt: Natasha McLean, Shemaine Campbelle)
All-rounders – Stafanie Taylor, Deandra Dottin, Hayley Matthews
Bowlers – Shamilia Connell, Anisa Mohammed, Afy Fletcher (Doubt: Shakera Selman, Qiana Joseph)
South Africa Women Playing 11:
Wicket-keeper – Lizelle Lee
Batsmenwomen – Mignon du Preez, Sune Luus, Laura Wolvaardt (Doubt: Saarah Smith, Robyn Searle)
All-rounders – Dane van Niekerk, Chloe Tryon, Marizanne Kapp
Bowlers – Masabata Klaas, Raisibe Ntozakhe (Doubt: Zintle Mali, Tumi Sekhukhune)
West Indies Women squad: Stafanie Taylor (c), Kycia Knight, Natasha McLean, Merissa Aguilleira (wk), Shemaine Campbelle, Deandra Dottin, Anisa Mohammed, Shakera Selman, Shamilia Connell, Chedean Nation, Qiana Joseph, Afy Fletcher and Hayley Matthews.
South Africa Women squad: Dane van Niekerk (c), Chloe Tryon, Sune Luus, Mignon du Preez, Marizanne Kapp, Lizelle Lee, Masabata Klaas, Laura Wolvaardt, Robyn Searle, Saarah Smith, Faye Tunnicliffe (wk), Tumi Sekhukhune, Raisibe Ntozakhe and Zintle Mali.
Wicket-keeper: South Africa’s Lizelle Lee is a better option than Windies’ Merissa Aguilleira, for she is a reliable top-order batswoman with two ODI hundreds to her name.
Batswomen: Our first picks for batswomen will be South Africa’s Mignon Du Preez and Sune Luus for their recent form. Plus, Windies batting do not boast much quality in their ranks.
All-rounders: This is the department the hosts are blessed with. Along with skipper Stafanie Taylor, you can pick South African captain Dane Van Niekerk, Deandra Dottin, Chloe Tryon and Hayley Matthews.
Bowlers: We would advise you go with the experienced Windies’ bowlers in Anisa Mohammed and Afy Fletcher. Masabata Klaas, the spearhead of the South African bowling attack, is another you can bet on.
Captain/Vice Captain picks:
The players who can double your fantasy points are Stafanie Taylor, Lizelle Lee and Dane Van Niekerk.
