A low-scoring first game sets up the series nicely as West Indies look more than competitive now. The pitches are playing low and runs are tough to come by. Both sides are doing their bit with the ball, but still need a little more spark with the bat, if they are to find a way to get a more comprehensive result.

WI-W vs NZ-W Key Players
Amelia Kerr did a really good job with the ball, restricting West Indies to an achievable total. Her three wickets put the brakes on their innings and as she did not allow them to build partnerships. While she failed with the bat, she still remains a threat in either half of the game.
In a low scoring game, Alleyne held her nerve pretty well as she took West Indies to a score that looked of some substance. Her attacking style of play worked well, a she appeared to play on a different track from the rest. West Indies will hope she continues her form and does a similar job in the upcoming games.
