England Women win 1st CG United ODI

Mon, Dec 5, '22


Windies v England

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.

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."
