Just like England’s men’s Cricket team, Women’s team, too, is breaking records for fun. The most recent instance of it against their ongoing home tri-series between them, South Africa and New Zealand. While their previous assignment was against the Proteas, they’ll now take on New Zealand who too are coming on the back of a win. Both England and New Zealand defeated the South African team by a considerably big margin, so it should be an interesting battle between the two sides.
Opting to bat, the opening pair of Danielle Wyatt and Tammy Beaumont added a total of 147 runs for the first wicket. Wyatt played a swashbuckling knock of 56 consuming just 36 deliveries. Tammy Beaumont followed her next after playing a record-breaking inning of 116 in just 52 deliveries. With a superb start, England needed a flourishing finish and Katherine Brunt's and Natalie Sciver's cameos provided just that.
The pair added 64 runs in just over four overs and England finished with a record total of 250 to their name. After such a colossal effort by the batting department, it was always going to be difficult for the Protean women. South Africa lost Laura Wolvaardt in the second over of their innings and it all went downhill after that.
They were three wickets down for the total of 26 in just under 7 overs. While their skipper Dane van Niekerk secured one end and played a fighting knock, the English bowlers never allowed the Proteas to score freely which eventually resulted in a massive loss for the South African women. England have a difficult game ahead of them and if their batters can repeat what they did against the Proteas, they’ll certainly have a good chance to maul New Zealand as well.

In the first match of the tri-series, New Zealand scorched past South Africa with Suzi Bates scoring a cracking century, exactly what Tammy Beaumont repeated a few hours hence. The Kiwi skipper finished with her personal score of 124 not out while New Zealand finished with the total score of 216 which was bettered by England after just a few hours.
Their another opener, Sophie Devine also played a useful hand of 73 off just 48 deliveries. Although the likes of Amy Satterthwaite, Amelia Kerr did not get a chance to bat, they’ve been in good form coming into the series. Amelia Kerr bowled well in the match but went wicketless.
Hayley Jensen was the pick of their bowlers as she picked up three important wickets and went for just seven runs an over. Sophie Devine also impressed with her accurate bowling. She returned with the figures of 3-0-21-1. Overall, New Zealand did well in the last game and the games before that. They are a strong team and are more than capable of defeating any team on their day.

Both the teams won their first match batting first. Expect the same from both the sides in the upcoming fixture as well.
As has been the case in the whole of the season so far, this game, too, will be played on excellent batting surface. With two games being played on the same surface, the pitch will tend to get slower as the match progresses. Considering the cool weather and short format, it might not have as much impact and therefore team batting first with need a high total on the board while batting first.
England women have back to back matches to play on Saturday and the result of the first game could have a bearing on that of the second. They’ve done tremendously well in their run-up to this game and given the form they’re in, we expect them to prevail over New Zealand women in Sunday’s second encounter.
