Probable XI for New Zealand: Sophie Devine (c), Suzie Bates, Lauren Down, Amelia Kerr, Brooke Halliday, Maddy Green, Hayley Jensen, Isabella Gaze (wk), Jess Kerr, Hannah Rowe, Fran Jonas
Rashada Williams has been disappointing to say the least. Her highest score in the last 7 ODIs is 19. With the gloves, she has inflicted only one dismissal.
Although Amelia Kerr bowled 7 overs, she couldn’t provide any breakthrough for New Zealand. However, her knock of 47 was instrumental in helping her team cross the line.
Despite the hosts going down, Chinelle Henry made a huge difference in fantasy leagues by scoring a 34-ball 44 (5 fours). Later, she also grabbed the solitary wicket of Hayley Jensen. Overall, she generated 39.5 crucial points.
By finishing with figures of 7-2-22-2, Fran Jonas provided 32 fantasy points, out of which she added 6 bonus points for bowling 2 maidens and maintaining an impressive economy of 3.14 RPO.
For the year, Stafanie Taylor has added only 206 runs in 9 innings at 19. With the ball, she has picked only 4 wickets. That said, given her multi-skills, one expects her to make a resounding statement sooner than later.
Kyshona Knight’s strike rate (59.02) was far from impressive, but she held one end up with a patient 36. Moreover, she also added handy points for taking 3 catches, thereby making it to the Ultimate Team.
New Zealand will continue to rely on Hayley Jasen for early wickets with the new ball. For the year, she has bagged 11 wickets in 8 games, including the best figures of 3 for 32
Unless West Indies find ways to dismiss Suzie Bates early, she will continue to pile on the runs. Her recent scores against them read 44, 101*, 89, 3, and 51.
Hayley Matthews failed with the bat in the opening ODI but made amends by bagging a three-wicket haul to finish with the most fantasy points (44) on My11Circle.
Sophie Devine looked in decent touch before being dismissed for 25. She has slammed 2 hundreds and as many fifties in her last 5 ODIs against West Indies.
Fantasy Tip Of The Day
As compared to West Indies, the New Zealand top order appears far more settled and formidable. Their bowlers have also been equally effective.
