32-year-old Deandra Dottin is a champion player who has amassed 2697 runs in T20Is. In the previous match against the Guyana Amazon Warriors, she scored 35 runs off 19 balls at an impressive strike rate of 184.21. Once she gets going, it is next to impossible to take her wicket.
A veteran of the game, Anisa Mohammed has bowled impressively during the CPL. In the previous match against the Guyana Amazon Warriors, she took 4 wickets for 28 runs, taking the prized wicket of Sophie Devine. With the pitch providing assistance to spinners, Anisa Mohammed is sure to perform well in the tournament.
The captain of the Barbados Royals, Hayley Matthews is a proven match winner. In the team’s last match against the Guyana Amazon Warriors, she scored 22 runs, hit 4 fours, and took 1 wicket for 23 runs at an economy rate of 5.75. Matthews has proved her mettle in the T20I format multiple times and is surely a player to watch out for.
Amanda Jade Wellington:
Amanda Jade Wellington has had a good run in the W-CPL so far. She has bowled with a good economy rate with spells of 1/28, 2/13 and 1/21. Known for being handy with the bat as well, Wellington is a player who can change the course of the match.
The pitch at the Queen’s Park Oval is favorable for batting but will tilt in favor of the spinners as the game progresses. Seamers may have chances to take early wickets during the match.
There is a 50% chance of rain during the game with the temperature expected to be between 28 degree Celsius and 32 degree Celsius.
