and live on Freeview channel 276
England secured a comprehensive win against the West Indies in the first ODI of their three-match series. The two sides have met in the Caribbean to complete a bilateral series with three ODI matches followed by a five-match T20 series which will take place later in December at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium and Kensington Oval in Barbados.
This was England’s first fixture with returning captain Heather Knight after the batter was forced to miss most of the summer due to a hip injury. Knight managed just 16 off 23 before succumbing to the bowling of Aaliyah Alleyne.
However, this was of little not as also returning to the squad following a stint out of the game to focus on her mental health, was Nat Sciver who shone with the bat hitting 90 runs to help England to a score of 307. This soon proved too much for the host nation, as seven of the West Indian side failed to reach double digits. Danni Wyatt hit 68 off 60 balls as well before England’s Charlie Dean took over with the ball to take four wickets for just 35 runs as the West Indies were bowled out for 165 runs after only 40.3 overs.
The last bilateral series the two sides played came in 2020 when England completed a clean sweep on home soil. However, their last ODI meeting came earlier this year at the ODI Women’s Cricket World Cup which saw the West Indies win by seven runs.
