Series: CG United ODI Series: West Indies Women vs England Women
Venue: Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, Antigua
Result: England Women won by 142 runs
ST. JOHN’S, Antigua- England Women won the first CG United against West Indies Women by 142 runs at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua. Nat Sciver was Player of the Match for her unbeaten 90 off 96 deliveries.
West Indies captain Hayley Matthews said things didn’t go to plan but they will reassess and refocus for the second match on Tuesday, December 6.
Matthews told CWI Media,
“Both facets of the game (batting and bowling) we didn’t do what we wanted on a decent and England was able to capitalise on it. We’re going back to the drawing board and see what we can improve on in the next game. Our power play was pretty good but we let a little too many runs go by in the middle overs. It was good to see the partnership between Kycia and Rashada and I hope we can get a few more of those.”
Both teams meet again on Tuesday, December 6 at the same venue for the 2nd CG United ODI in a Day/Night encounter. The first ball is at 2:00 pm Eastern Caribbean/1:00 pm Jamaica time.
