WI-W vs NZ-W: New Zealand Women will take on West Indies Women in the second ODI match of the New Zealand Womens tour of West Indies 2022. This game will be played as a part of the ICC Championship match. The fixture will take place on 22nd September 2022 at Antigua. New Zealand is leading the three-match ODI series by 1-0.
West Indies women were defeated by the Black Caps in the first match. The Windies put on a good show with the bat, but frequent rain disruptions and bad light played spoilsport for them. The Blackcaps won the game by the DLS method. This will be a do-or-die for the Windies as the series is at stake. New Zealand, on the other hand, is only one win away from clinching the series.

Pitch Report for WI-W vs NZ-W
The game is scheduled to take place at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua. Just like in the first game, the chances of rain disruption are highly likely. The wicket will assist the batting and bowling departments equally. As rain can hamper the second innings, bowling first would be a wise choice on this surface.

Match Predictions for WI-W vs NZ-W
New Zealand Women are the probable winners of this game. They are in good form and shape compared to the Windies. West Indies women are still in transition under a new captain. Rain has not helped them either. They will be under immense pressure to secure this game. Their middle order needs to step up. New Zealand, on the other hand, will clinch the ODI series with this win. Hopefully, a good game of cricket will play out without any disruptions.
