New Zealand women are getting ready to host the England women for an ODI and T20 series. It is great to see two of the best women’s teams fight it out in what should be pretty high-scoring conditions. The pandemic has affected women’s cricket disproportionately and so these series are even more important than usual.
We are starting with the ODI’s first and there have been two practice matches played to give us an idea of what to expect.
The ODI format has been traditionally one where England has been stronger but New Zealand has a lot of world-class players that cannot be taken lightly either.
New Zealand Women vs England Women 1st ODI 2021 is going to be played at the Hagley Oval, Christchurch on the 23rd of February 2021.
New Zealand is playing at home and would love to win this series against England. There are a number of players that are considered among the best in the world and they will be keen to live up to that reputation.
Leading the way will be the captain, Sophie Devine, easily one of the best all-rounders in the game. Not only is she a powerful and consistent batter at the top of the order but she is also very capable of chipping in with the ball as needed.
Amy Satterthwaite, Amelia Kerr, and maybe Hayley Jensen may all get a chance to play in the playing eleven as well. This adds a tremendous amount of depth and balance to the team. Maddy Green and Natalie Dodd are the two genuine batters while Katey Martin is going to be the keeper-batsmen.
Lea Tahuhu is the leading bowler of the team and will be a big threat to all of the opposition batters. Some of the senior players in New Zealand women’s cricket have moved on and it is a bit of a transition phase.
The batting, in particular, must find a few more options otherwise the dependency on Sophie Devine will continue.
Katey Martin, Natalie Dodd, Amy Satterthwaite, Brooke Halliday, Sophie Devine, Amelia Kerr, Frances Mackay, Lea Tahuhu, Hannah Rowe, Hayley Jensen, Fran jonas.
There is no team in the world that has the kind of domestic structure and depth that England has apart from maybe Australia. The women’s game is very well-taken care of and the players are well paid. This is why they have a steady stream of world-class players.
In that sense, England has not been able to deliver the kind of titles over the past few years and this series would be an important building block.
Heather Knight, Danielle Wyatt, Tammy Beaumont, Fran Wilson, and Amy Ellen Jones are likely to be the batting unit for England. There is a lot of experience and talent in this lineup. Knight and Wyatt are the obvious big names but don’t count our Beaumont and Jones either.
Like New Zealand, there is a lot of depth in the batting lineup for England.
Nate Sciver, Georgia Elwiss, Katherine Brunt, and even Sophie Ecclestone can bat. They are all very potent bowlers as well. We actually think that England is a better-balanced side than New Zealand.
It certainly has more experience in the team and its players are well-settled into their roles.
Amy Ellen Jones, Tammy Beaumont, Danielle Wyatt, Fran Wilson, Heather Knight, Natalie Sciver, Sophie Ecclestone, Katherine Brunt, Sarah Glenn, Tash Farrant, Freya Davies.
The team that wins the toss is going to want to bat first. That is the general trend in the women's game and we don’t think any of the teams will veer away from it. Betting first should be seen as a big advantage.

The conditions are going to be in favor of the batsmen as a completely flat pitch awaits the teams. The outfield is going to be fast and the ball will fly to the boundaries. The weather is expected to be very good for cricket and there should be no weather-related interruptions.
We think a score of around 250-260 is going to be the least that teams aim for batting first.
New Zealand has home advantage on its side and is a pretty good team. We think, however, it is more suited to the T20 format than the fifty over one. England, on the other hand, has players that excel at this format and have enough experience to be able to make the most of the conditions on offer.
Bet on England to win.
