English cricket fans could not be happier. Men's team is doing incredibly well and setting records against Australia while the women's team registered a superb series win against the Proteas. The women's team recently prevailed over the Proteas 2-1 in a home one-day series and will now face them in a triangular T20I series involving New Zealand. It will be a double header on Wednesday with English women taking on New Zealand women and South Africa women in back to back T20 games. This tri-series is vital for all three team with Women's World T20 just a few months away. The ODI series between the two teams was well-fought and we expect a tough contest between the two sides in the shortest version of the game as well.
The limited-overs champions in women's cricket are set to face the Proteas in their second game of the day. Lauren Winfield alongside Katie George will not be the part of their squad for the first two games but will join the squad for Saturday's fixtures.
England played their last limited-overs match against South Africa four days ago and won that quite comfortably. Chasing a modest total set by the Proteas, Tammy Beaumont and skipper Heather Knight played excellent knocks of 105 and 80 respectively to guide their team to victory.
While English bowlers did well to restrict the Proteas for 228, their fielding was way off the mark. They dropped three catches which allowed South Africa to get going. Overall, English women's team has been doing well in recent times with Taylor and Beaumont in superb form. A lot will depend on this experienced pair against the same team in the upcoming T20 fixture.

South African women's team will be pumped with confidence going into this tri-series, especially after their win on 13th June. Lizelle Lee and captain Dane Vam Niekerk were amongst the runs in the ODI series. The Proteas will draw inspiration from the win when the duo scored half-century after a scintillating display by their quick bowlers.
Shabnim Ismail, in particular, was impressive with ball in her hand. She picked up 3 for 25 in his quota of 10 overs. Ayabonga Khaka also made a useful contribution with the ball and picked up 3 for 42 in her 10. While Khaka and Ismail regularly showed up in the wickets column, Raisibe Ntozakhe's miserly spell kept English batting from flying away. Although she went wicketless, she gave away only 21 runs in her 10 overs.
South Africa did well to win one match in the ODI series and will be looking to repeat similar performance in T20I series as well. Although the games tend to be more evenly poised as we move towards the shorter version, South Africa will still have to play out of their skins to beat in-form English women.
Lizelle Lee, Laura Wolvaardt, Tazmin Brits, Dane van Niekerk, Sune Luus, Mignon du Preez, Stacey Lackay, Marizanne Kapp, Shabnim Ismail, Masabata Klaas, Raisibe Ntozakhe.
With surface expected to slow down due as the game progresses, batting will become difficult. Expect the skipper winning the toss to bat first.

Tuesday is going to be an excellent day for Cricket with the maximum temperature to hover in the range of 22 degrees. There will be a little cloud-cover throughout the day, but the chances of rain are pretty slim. Small ground and excellent surface to bat in Taunton are a perfect recipe for a superb day for batsmen. However, being a double-header, expect the pitch will tend to get a little slower towards the end of the day.
Although South Africa lost the ODI series 2-1, they'd believe that they did well to challenge English women on their soil. South Africa have a team perfectly suited for the shortest format of the game and cannot be taken likely. English Women are playing at home and with Taylor, Beaumont in such fine form, getting past them will be a colossal task. Back English women to prevail over South Africa in the second fixture of the opening day of the tri-series.
