Shakera Selman spoke to CWI media saying, "We didn't have enough runs on the board. The pitch was conducive to run-scoring and we didn't take advantage of that, we would've liked to have had a better start from the opening batters but Hayley, Stafanie and Chinelle were able to pull us back a bit, then Afy Fletcher and myself at the back end. One positive for us is that we didn't get bowled out in either match, so we just need to work harder and get to that 200 total because we see what we can do to New Zealand if we have enough runs."
Both teams meet on Sunday September 25 for the 3rd CG United ODI at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium. First ball is 9:30am Eastern Caribbean/8:30am Jamaica time.
