NZ-W Team News

New Zealand women will be looking for a better show in the ODI series after being hammered by England in the T20Is. Sophie Devine’s injury has put the White Ferns further on the backfoot and it will be interesting to see how they fare without their gun all-rounder. In the absence of Devine, Amelia Kerr is likely to lead. 

NZ-W Team Batting

Suzie Bates, Amelia Kerr and Maddy Green are the most experienced players in the team and most of the team’s hopes will rest on them. The players failed to make big impact in the T20I series but they will have more time to settle in ODIs so they can find their rhythm back.

NZ-W Team Bowling

The bowling will rest on the shoulders of Amelia Kerr and Rosemary Mair, who were the best bowlers in the T20I series, taking six and four wickets respectively. Also, Lea Tahuhu is a match winner in this format of the game.
