After getting a 3-0 drubbing in the ODI series, New Zealand women made South Africa taste their own medicine. The Kiwis lead the T20I series 2-0 and will be looking to seal the series when the two teams meet each other for the third time in the five-match series on 9th February at Basin Reserve, Wellington. New Zealand will be looking to seal the series in the upcoming contest whereas South Africa will be looking to get into the same mood they showed in the longer version of the game. The last match between the two sides was a rather one-sided affair, but we expect South Africa to put up a much improved performance in the upcoming contest. A cracking contest is certainly on the cards on Saturday.
The Kiwis failed miserably in the ODI series with their batsmen not scoring enough runs, but in the two matches gone so far, their bowlers ensured that their batsmen do not have much to do. The Kiwis restricted the Proteas to a total of 116 runs in the first T20I and followed it up with a similar performance, restricting South Africa to just 119.
So good was New Zealand's bowling performance in the second match that only three South African batsmen were able to score in double digits. Lea Tahuhu was the pick of their bowlers as she not only dismissed Dane van Niekerk and Chloe Tyron, but also gave away just ten runs in her four overs. Her tight spell build additional pressure on Proteas' batsmen and that resulted in a few more wickets at the other end.
To chase down the total, all New Zealand needed was a solid start, but they lost two wickets for just 27 runs on the board. Sophie Devine then took control of the things and singlehandedly guided the Kiwis to a win with her 43-ball 61-run knock. New Zealand lost three more wickets towards the end of their chase, but that had no impact whatsoever on their march.

South Africa looked a flawless unit in the longer version of the game, but have, so far, failed to come even close. Their batsmen failed to fire in both the matches and their bowlers didn't have much to do with a relatively low total to defend.
South Africa's top-order looked good in the first match of the series as all of their top-four batsmen got starts. However, story was altogether different in the second match as most of their batsmen failed to score in even double figures. Barring Mignon du Preez, Dane van Niekerk, and Laura Wolvaardt, none of their batsmen looked comfortable in the middle as the Proteas ended up with a subpar total of 119 runs on the board.
On a surface where scoring runs was pretty easy, there wasn't much that the Proteas bowlers could have done in either of the matches. Shabnim Ismail, Dane van Niekerk, Ayabonga Khaka, and Sune Luus were the bowlers who tasted success in the second match of the series. Khaka picked up two wickets while the others returned with a wicket each.

Although the results of the matches gone in the series reflect otherwise, South Africa aren't a bad side. They were brilliant in the ODIs and will be desperate to get back to the winning ways. New Zealand, on the other hand, have been clinical in the two matches gone so far and beating them is going to take some effort. On paper, South Africa a better-balanced side, albeit marginally, and with odds of 2.38, betting on their win could prove to be highly profitable and would be the way to go in the third match of the series.
