About the Match

The Indian women could not have imagined a better start to their tour of New Zealand. They absolutely bossed the first match and ended up crushing the New Zealand women with ease. The loss if going to hurt New Zealand, who are among the better sides in women’s cricket. Indian women have made great strides in recent years and it is showing.

Can New Zealand women find a way past the Indian women spinners? Can New Zealand win this second ODI match and keep the series alive or will the Indian wrap up their first series victory of this tour?

Match Preview

New Zealand Women

The New Zealand women started the previous match quite well and were 61 for no loss at one stage in the 14th over. A continuous fall of wickets then forced the New Zealand women to go into their shell and they eventually folded for 192 in the 49th over.

Considering the number of New Zealand players that have been active in the WBBL, the side was well drilled and up for the challenge. They just failed to make the adjustment required against spin in the middle overs.

We expect the Kiwi women to hit back strongly in the second match. Suzie Bates, Sophie Devine, Amy Satterthwaite, and Amelia Kerr all got starts in the previous match. Not one of them could translate that into a big score.

Bates, Devine, and Satterthwaite had a very good WBBL where they scored plenty of runs. They must also have faced a lot of spin because that was the predominant nature of the attacks in the WBBL.

No doubt that the quality of Poonam Yadav would be better than what they would have been accustomed to but the players would back themselves to make better choices next time around. We think the New Zealand women should be able to come up with a better score in the next match.

We are backing Sophie Devine to be the highest scorer in the upcoming match.

The New Zealand bowling did not have a big target to defend but the manner in which Smriti Mandhana and Jemimah Rodrigues took the game away from them would have left them shell shocked.

None of the bowlers could pick up a wicket until India was 2 runs away from victory. That the target was achieved in 33 overs also shows the lack of control the New Zealand bowlers were able to exert.

Lea Tahuhu, Leigh Kaspersk, and Amelia Kerr are the players leading the bowling attack along with the all-rounders down the order. Out of these, we like Tahuhu to be the highest wicket-taker in the upcoming contest.

New Zealand Women Starting Lineup

Suzie Bates, Sophie Devine, Lauren Down, Amy Satterthwaite, Amelia Kerr, Maddy Green, Bernadine Bezuidenhout, Leigh Kasperek, Anna Peterson, Hannah Rowe, Lea Tahuhu.

India Women

The Indian women played a near perfect match to start their New Zealand tour. They bowled with a lot of precision and backed their strengths to get the better of the New Zealand women. It will be interesting to see how Mithali Raj is able to marshal her bowlers if Poonam Yadav does not get the wickets in the middle as she did.

Ekta Bisht, Poonam Yadav, and Deepti Sharma shared eight out of the ten wickets to fall. They were the pick of the bowlers and had an element of surprise over the New Zealand women. They are going to have a much harder time in the next match because the New Zealand women will come with better plans to counter them.

Still, backing one of these three, possibly Ekta Bisht, to be the highest wicket-taker seems like a good idea.

The Indian batting did not have to do too much work because Smriti Mandhana and Jemima Rodrigues finished the chase on their own. There are some very accomplished batters to follow this opening pair like Mithali Raj and Harmanpreet Kaur.

Taniya Bhatia is also a good batter but India does not have the depth that New Zealand does in its lineup. Getting off to a good start and keeping wickets in hand is much more important for Indian than it is for New Zealand.

We are really looking forward to seeing Harmanpreet Kaur bat in the fifty over format. She is currently among the most powerful batters in world cricket and can clear any ground easily. If she can temper herself a little she could be a force in the ODI version of the game as well.

India Women Starting Lineup

Jemimah Rodrigues, Smriti Mandhana, Mithali Raj, Deepti Sharma, Harmanpreet Kaur, Dayalan Hemalatha, Taniya Bhatia, Shikha Pandey, Jhulan Goswami, Ekta Bisht, Poonam Yadav.

Pitch and Conditions

The second ODI between the New Zealand women and the Indian women is going to be played at the Bay Oval, Mount Maunganui. This is the same venue where the 2nd and 3rd men’s ODI’s are going to be played and so a fair bit of wear and tear would have taken place on the square.

That could mean some purchase for the spinners once again. Overall, though, the batsmen should be able to score a lot of runs after getting their eye in and a total of around 250 seems to be par.

Match Prediction

New Zealand has the talent at its disposal to hit back strongly against India. We think the toss will play a big role to play and the side batting first will have a definite advantage. India women have won their last four matches against New Zealand women and will be very confident of a victory going into this match.

We think the home side should win this one.

Back New Zealand women to win.
