Expert Prediction: ENGW vs SAW
England Women will begin their T20 World Cup campaign against South Africa Women. They have been one of the most consistent sides in the history of world T20. They won the first edition of the tournament and then ended up as runners-up on three other occasions.
South Africa, on the other hand, had their best performance in 2014 when they finished as the semifinalist. Their recent T20 record has not been too great though. They lost the recent series against New Zealand quite easily by a margin of 3-1. They would like to forget it and show a much improved performance in the tournament.
England have appointed Heather Knight as their skipper this time around and she has been in a terrific form coming into the tournament. She would need support though. She would like her senior players like Danielle Wyat, Katherine Brunt and Nat Sciver to be at their best straightaway.
South Africa, on the other hand, would be relying on their senior players like Sune Luus and Marizanne Kapp as well. They have a promising squad and can surprise a few teams in the competition. Their target would be to reach the semifinal first and then take it from there.
Our prediction is of a win for England Women in this cricket game. They have won three out of the last five cricket games between the two sides.
