After a disappointing show in their first couple of matches, New Zealand Women finally managed to post a win in their series against England. The win would not only boost the home side's confidence but might also act as a wake-up call for the visitors going into the T20I series. The first T20I of the three-match series is to be played on 3rd March at Westpac Stadium, Wellington, which is the same venue where the men's match is scheduled to be played later in the day.
Although New Zealand Women lost the series 2-1, they'll take the result given how strong the English women team is. There weren't many pundits who gave the Kiwis a chance to win even a single game in the series, especially after the way the hosts played in the first two matches. With New Zealand winning the last match, they now have the stage set for the T20Is and it will be interesting to see how they come out in the shortest format of the game.
New Zealand Women have pretty much the same team for the T20Is as they had for the ODIs. Given that they lack depth in their batting, the shortest format should be ideal for them to take on this strong English lineup.
In the previous match, it were the New Zealand bowlers that got them to a terrific win. Amelia Kerr and Jess Kerr were the picks for the hosts as they together picked up six wickets without giving many runs away. Amelia Kerr also contributed brilliantly with the bat as she slammed a quick fifty, partnering with Amy Satterthwaite, who scored a match-defining century.
On paper, the Kiwis have a decent side and a contingent of all-rounders add to their balance. Playing without Lea Tahuhu, their bowling was impressive in the final ODI, and would want to post a similar performance in the first T20I as well. If that happens, the Kiwis will be in business big time.
Maddy Green, Sophie Devine, Hayley Jensen, Amy Satterthwaite, Katey Martin, Amelia Kerr, Brooke Halliday, Thamsyn Newton, Leigh Kasperek, Rosemary Mair, Jess Kerr.
Contrary to the Kiwis, the English cricket team will be disappointed even though they registered a 2-1 win over the hosts. England were always a stronger team to begin with and played like one in the first two matches. However, they looked complacent in the third match and that cost them the match.
Batting first on a decent surface, England Women looked all set for posting a decent total, but could not do so as their middle-order failed to stitch the required partnerships. Eventually, England Women finished with a total of 220, which proved too easy to scale down for the hosts.
Considering how easily the Kiwis managed to chase that total down, it wouldn't be wrong to say that English women lacked the sharpness. Even their best bowlers in the series were carted away for runs as New Zealand won the match with seven wickets in hand and twenty balls to spare.
England will be going into the shortest format of the game with more or less the same team and are still a strong team on paper. With the likes of Nat Sciver, Tammy Beaumont, and Heather Knight already in fine form, the onus will be on their middle-order. If their middle-order manages to play to its potential, England will cruise to yet another win on this tour.
Tammy Beaumont, Danielle Wyatt, Heather Knight, Natalie Sciver, Amy Ellen Jones, Sophia Dunkley Brown, Katherine Brunt, Sophie Ecclestone, Sarah Glenn, Mady Villiers, Freya Davies.
Before this tour started, it was predicted to be a landslide win for the visitors. However, New Zealand announced themselves with a fantastic show in the last One Day International and things are likely to get tighter hereon. Both sides will now be brimming with confidence and a cracker of a contest is certainly on the cards. Comparing the two sides on paper and on the basis of recent performances, England are a stronger team and are, therefore, our pick as winners for this upcoming contest.
