Five players to watch in the England v West Indies T20 series

It’s been a long wait for Heather Knight’s side but they announced their return to action in style by beating the West Indies in the series opener on Monday.

The two sides are set to face each other in five T20s at Derby’s Incora County Ground all of which are available to watch for free on the Sky Sports YouTube channel as September is Women’s Big Cricket month!

England may be one up in the series but there is an awful lot of cricket to be played and judging by Monday’s game, it’s going to be action-packed and exciting.

The frustrating way that the T20 World Cup ended for them earlier this year will likely still irk England but they’ll have their eyes firmly set on a series win.

Lisa Keightley’s side will know if they continue to play their best cricket, they’re going to be very hard to beat.

They’ve got some excellent players and we’ve picked out five to watch as the series wears on…
