🏆 ENG Women vs NZ Women Prediction

England Women has won 43 out of 82 ODI matches against New Zealand Women which shows that the former has the upper-hand in the head to head record. New Zealand has some of the top white-ball players in their team but beating England in their own backyard is a difficult task. England is fully-equipped with their A-class players and they can kick-off the series with a win.
