It was a quiet last year for cricket fans across the globe, but the calendar shows that 2021 is going to be an exciting year. Apart from several important series in men's cricket, we have the Women's ODI World Cup to be played this year and the Women's teams have already started their preparations.
Ongoing New Zealand's tour of England will pretty much act as a dress rehearsal for the ICC Cricket World Cup that is to be played later this year. Both these sides have historically produced pretty good limited-overs contests and this is expected to be the same as well. The second match of the series is to be played on 26th February at University Oval, Dunedin.
Given that New Zealand had the home advantage, the fans would have hoped for the Kiwis to post a better performance in the opening match of the series. The Kiwis were disappointing in the first match in both the departments of the game but will be confident of bouncing back into the series. With Lea Tahuhu ruled out of the upcoming matches, there will be immense pressure on the other Kiwi bowlers and that could prove to be a telling factor going forward.
On a surface that was excellent to bat on, New Zealand batsmen struggled to get going. They lacked intent and consequently had to pay the price with their wicket. However, their performance still had a lot of positives. Hayley Jansen and Brooke Holiday scored a splendid fifty each and that pushed New Zealand to a respectable total. However, their bowlers couldn't come even close to defending that.
On paper, New Zealand have a decent batting unit with the likes of Amy Satterthwaite, Sophie Devine, and Amelia Kerr available in the middle-order. The absence of Tahuhu, however, leaves their bowling a little light on experience and that is something England would want to take advantage of. If the Kiwi bowlers can do well in the upcoming match, New Zealand will be in with a decent chance.

England were clearly disappointed after facing a loss in their final warm-up match that happened a week ago. However, they bounced back in a strong manner as they posted a solid win in the opening ODI of the series. While there appeared to be many issues in the warm-up match, they all vanished in the previous one-day international.
In the first match, it was all about English bowlers before Tammy Beaumont and Heather Knight closed the chase with incredible ease. Bowling first, the pair of Tash Farrant and Katherine was terrific upfront as those bowlers not only kept things quiet but also picked up wickets. Just when New Zealand wanted to hit some lusty hits, Sophie Ecclestone picked up two important wickets to wrap the hosts under 200.
Chasing a modest total of 179, England started off well with Danni Wyatt and Tammy Beaumont adding 42 runs for the first wicket. Even though England lost two wickets in their chase, the likes of Heather Knight, Natalie Sciver, and Beaumont never looked concerned. They eventually toppled the total with over 16 overs to spare and eight wickets in hand.

It was one-way traffic in the first match and New Zealand would want to turn things around going forward. They have the firepower on paper, but given the thrashing they got in the opening match, they might be a little low on confidence. England, on the other hand, were flawless and will be brimming with confidence. In addition to that, they are a better-balanced side, at least on paper, and are, therefore, our pick to emerge as the winners in this upcoming contest.
