NZ Women Team News & Playing 11

NZ-W Team News

With the Women’s Premier League only coming to an end on Sunday, New Zealand Women will be without all-rounders Amelia Kerr and Sophie Devine for this opener. Georgia Plimmer and Mikaele Greig have both been called up and could play in this game with the side captained by Suzie Bates.

NZ-W Team Batting

Captain Kerr and the experienced Devine will both be big misses for New Zealand Women in this game as they are two of their top players. However, Bates is a more than able deputy and she hit a Player of the Match score of 51 not out from 42 balls in New Zealand’s last fixture in this format.

NZ-W Team Bowling

We can expect Eden Carson to lead the bowling attack in Dunedin and the 22 year old off-spinner took a two-wicket haul in New Zealand Women’s last WT20I. Fran Jonas is another exciting young spinner and she is renowned for bowling with good control.

NZ-W Team Form

New Zealand Women had lost three successive WT20Is before winning their last game.

ENG Women Team News & Playing 11

ENG-W Team News

Due to the WPL, Alice Capsey, Sophie Ecclestone, Nat Sciver-Brunt and Danielle Wyatt will all be unavailable for this game and each of the first three matches of this series. Skipper Heather Knight missed the WPL to focus on this series and she will lead an experienced squad with Hollie Armitage the only uncapped player.

ENG-W Team Batting

Heather Knight is not only the captain of this team but also their most experienced player who hit a half-century in their last WT20I. Sophia Dunkley and Maia Bouchier are aggressive openers and keeper-batter Amy Jones is another top class batter in the side.

ENG-W Team Bowling

With left-arm spinner Sophie Ecclestone absent, this will give the opportunity for other bowlers to lead the attack in this game. Charlie Dean impressed with her off-spin in the last WT20I and she is expected to open the bowling for England Women in this game.

ENG-W Team Form

England Women lost their last WT20I by 5 wickets but had won the previous two in the three-match series against India Women in December last year.

ENG Women Predicted Playing 11

Sophia Dunkley, Maia Bouchier, Linsey Smith, Heather Knight (c), Amy Jones (wk), Danielle Gibson, Bess Heath, Lauren Filer, Lauren Bell, Charlie Dean, Sarah Glenn

🏆 NZ Women vs ENG Women Prediction

After losing their last home WT20I series to Pakistan Women, and without two of their top players, this could be a tough series opener for New Zealand Women. However, England Women are also without some of their strongest individuals so it will not be an easy game for them either. Our prediction is for a close match with England Women going 1-0 up.
