After thrashing New Zealand Women 3-0 during the WODI series which concluded on Wednesday, England Women will be targeting another whitewash in this WT20I series. Once again, Heather Knight will lead the hosts across this five game contest.

ENG-W Team Batting

There will be changes to England Women’s XI from their final WODI match with most notably Tammy Beaumont, who dominated at the top of the order, not playing for her country in this format. Heather Knight and Maia Bouchier will be key with the bat for England Women in this WT20I.

Left-arm spinner Sophie Ecclestone took seven wickets against New Zealand Women in her two appearances during the WODIs and their batters will not be looking forward to facing her again in this clash. Off-spinner Charlie Dean is another who impressed over recent weeks.

ENG-W Team Form

England Women come into this game after recording victories in their last five WT20Is.

Although New Zealand Women were not expected to win the WODIs, Sophie Devine will have been disappointed by how much her side were outplayed across the three games. This series presents an opportunity for the White Ferns to leave this tour with a series win.

NZ-W Team Batting

There is plenty of batting talent in this New Zealand Women’s squad but the problem tends to be they very rarely produce strong innings at the same time. Keeper-batter Isabella Gaze hit an unbeaten half-century in the last WT20I head to head and we expect to see her in the top five in this game.

Against a very strong England Women’s batting side, New Zealand Women will need the likes of Amelia Kerr, Lea Tahuhu and Sophie Devine to be at their best. Young spinner Fran Jonas is likely to be targeted by the England power hitters.

New Zealand Women have won only one of their last five WT20Is.

🏆 ENG Women vs NZ Women Prediction

The colour of the ball is the same as in the WODIs but the format is shorter and there will be some new players on show in this match. However, England Women are a very strong team across all formats and it would be a shock if they were not to win comfortably in this game.
