Players to watch
The left-arm spinner of New Zealand was one of the most successful bowlers for the team in the first ODI against West Indies. She claimed 22/2 in seven overs, including two maidens. She picked up the key wickets of Stafanie Taylor and Hayley Matthews. She was also the most economical bowler for New Zealand.
The right-handed opening batter of New Zealand led the run chase from the front with a brilliant 51 off 65 in the first ODI against West Indies. She smashed six boundaries in her innings and stitched a crucial 54-run partnership with her opening partner and captain, Sophie Devine. Bates recorded her 29th half-century in the ODI format.
The West Indian all-rounder made valuable contributions with bat and ball in the first ODI against New Zealand. She hammered 44 off 34, hitting five boundaries. She came in to bat when her team was struggling at 74/5. She took the attack to the opposition and played a stroke-filled knock. With the ball, the right-arm quick opened the bowling with Shamilia Connell and struck with 23/1 in three overs.
The West Indies captain was the bowlers’ pick in the first ODI against New Zealand. The right-arm off-spinner scalped 28/3 in seven overs, including two wickets in the 29th over. She bowled tight lines and lengths, keeping the opposition batters at bay. Apart from her bowling, she is an attacking right-handed batter.
This will be the second match of the series at this venue. The last match saw more than 300 runs being scored. However, rain reduced the game to 35 overs a side. While it was a tricky wicket to bat on because of the cloudy conditions, the bowlers had a good time as they got a lot of purchases from the wicket and conditions.
The weather is expected to see times of sun and clouds with a couple of showers and a thunderstorm. The maximum temperature attained during the day could be 31 degrees Celsius. There will be 65 percent cloud cover and a 88 percent chance of rain. The wind will blow from the east-southeast.
