The swashbuckling right-handed opening batter of West Indies started the World Cup with a boundary against New Zealand. In the same over, she smacked three boundaries in total. Though she missed out on scoring big in the World Cup opener, she will be raring to go in the upcoming matches. With the ball, she bowled the last over of the match and successfully defended six runs and picked up two wickets as well.

Pitch

The last match that was played here, which was a part of the ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup, was a rain-curtailed affair. Due to the wet conditions, the bowlers found it difficult to grip the ball. This made it easy for batters to score freely. Overall, the venue looks good for batting. However, if the bowlers are consistent with their lines and lengths they can yield rich dividends.

Weather

The weather is expected to be cool with low clouds. The average temperature will be around 16 degrees Celsius, with 25 percent chance of precipitation and 100 percent cloud cover. The wind will blow from the east-southeast.
