England women’s Squad For West Indies Tour: The three-match ODI series and the five-match T20I series will be contested in Antigua and Barbuda as well as Barbados from December 4–22. The three one-day internationals will be a part of the ICC Women’s Championship. Although England is yet to begin play after losing to India 3-0 at home in September.
In terms of their head-to-head record, England has defeated West Indies in 15 of the 23 One-Day Internationals they have played so far, with the latter team winning just six. In T20Is, England has triumphed 13 times, while the West Indies have defeated them eight times.
New Coach Jon Lewis
Sciver is on both squads, while Brunt, who retired from Test cricket earlier this year, made the T20I selection. With newly appointed coach Jon Lewis implying that Brunt’s workload will be controlled, Brunt was not selected for the ODI team.
Senior all-rounders Nat Sciver and Katherine Brunt returned from holidays to be picked for the West Indies tour, joining opening batter Lauren Winfield-Hill in the T20I team.
Jon Lewis new head coach of England’s women’s team stated that “I’m really excited to get to the West Indies and start working with this group. Though I wasn’t involved in selection for this trip. We did have some brief discussions in the lead-up to selection and I’m pleased for everyone who’s been selected.”
He further stated that “It’s great to have Heather, Nat and Katherine back in the group. The quality and experience they bring can only add huge value both on and off the field. We will manage Katherine back into competitive cricket with an eye on the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup in February.”
