England alert about their next challenge against power-packed “West Indies”

Danni Wyatt believes her team must come up with pride in their next contest, after having improved their performance drastically against World Cup favorites Australia. However, she believes they can take nothing for granted against a West Indies team who opened their campaign with a nail-biting first-day win over hosts New Zealand.

Tuesday’s contest in Dunedin could prove to be a make-or-break deal for both teams in a tight group stage, from which only four of the eight teams can progress to the semi-finals. Another West Indies win would put Stafanie Taylor’s team firmly on path for the last four, while leaving England a lot of catch-up work to do after back-to-back losses. However, Wyatt has complete faith in her team-mates, not least Nat Sciver, their centurion against Australia, whom she believes is the best allrounder in the world.

We know what we are clashing against – Wyatt on their next game against West Indies

“They’ve got some great hitters in their team, a great bowling attack as well,” Wyatt said. “Dottin’s been around since I’ve been around. I’m getting old now, but she’s a game changer. Matthews can take the game away from you as well. But we’ll just go out there like we did the other day – nice and calm. Everyone knows their role, hopefully we’ll have fun and get those two points.

“With the Hundred and the Big Bash, a lot of us have played with and against the likes of Dottin, Hayley Matthews, Stafanie Taylor,” she added. “So we know what we’re going to come up against. We’re definitely ready for the challenge, hopefully the cricket Gods are on our side tomorrow.”

“This is my fourth time in New Zealand, which is incredible,” she added. “For a few of us, this could be our last World Cup so we’ve got to go out there and enjoy every minute, and embrace the challenges. In many ways, it was nice to play the Aussies first up. Now we can focus on all of the other teams and hopefully get on a roll, because there’s so many positives from that match the other night against the Aussies.”
