Cricket Match Preview:

ICC Women’s championship tournament is advancing, and India women will be taking on New Zealand women in New Zealand. India’s men cricket team is also in New Zealand at the moment and will be playing a five-match cricket ODI series. India women are in New Zealand to play three-match ODI cricket series and three-match T20 international series.

India women are coming into this tournament after a successful World T20 cricket tournament played in West Indies. They ended up as a semifinalist under the leadership of Harmanpreet Kaur. However, what followed was a great turmoil for the team as India’s most successful player, Mithali Raj, had a clash with India’s then coach, Ramesh Power. It led to a huge controversy with both parties blaming each other. It led to the ouster of Ramesh Powar as a coach from India women team. Now, WV Raman is the new coach of this team.

New Zealand women themselves had a change of power as their skipper for many years, Suzie Bates, decided to relinquish the captaincy and hand it over to Amy Satterthwaite. Another problem facing New Zealand is how little of ODI cricket they have played in recent times. One will have to go back all the way to July 2018. New Zealand played against England women in a three-match cricket series in England and lost the series by 2-1.

This cricket series brings a wonderful opportunity for both sides to move away from their problems and settle down. India will be led by Mithali Raj and she would be hoping to settle down the cricket team and start winning the cricket games. New Zealand women will be hoping to keep their disastrous World T20 performance behind. In that cricket tournament, New Zealand were knocked out in the first round itself.  

Cricket Match Information:

India Women and New Zealand women will be taking on each other in the first ODI cricket game at Napier. It will be a three ODI cricket match series, which is part of the ongoing ICC Women’s Championship. This tournament is used to decide the direct qualifiers of the Women’s World Cup. The top four cricket teams will directly qualify for the World Cup, whereas the other cricket teams will then advance to World Cup qualifier.  

New Zealand Women:

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

New Zealand women are playing an ODI cricket series after a long time. Our prediction is they will go with the same playing eleven that played the last cricket game in World T20.

Here is our prediction of New Zealand’s playing XI:

  • Suzie Bates
  • AM Peterson
  • SFM Devine
  • AE Satterthwaite
  • KJ Martin
  • ML Green
  • Katie Martin
  • Haidee Tiffen
  • Amelia Kerr
  • Leigh Kasperek
  • LMM Tahuhu

India Women

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

India women will be led by Mithali Raj in this cricket series. Our prediction is they will go with the same playing eleven that played in the semifinal of the World T20 with the only exception being the captaincy.

Here is our prediction of India Women’s playing XI:

  • Mithali Raj
  • Smriti Mandhana
  • JL Rodrigues
  • Harmanpreet Kaur
  • Veda Krishanmurthi
  • D Hemalatha
  • DB Sharma
  • RP Yadav
  • T Bhatia
  • A Reddy
  • Poonam Yadav

Cricket Statistics and Prediction:

Smriti Mandhana is the best Indian batsman in the women’s team. She has to perform up to her standards if India have to do well in the cricket series. Our prediction is of a scintillating knock in the series opener from her.

Cricket Match Conditions and Pitch:

The last two international cricket ODI has been abandoned at this venue due to rain. The last complete international cricket game was between UAE and West Indies back in 2016 where only 175 runs were scored by UAE and chased down by West Indies. Our prediction is of a high scoring cricket game between the two sides. Conditions are expected to be dry.

Our Prediction:

India women will begin the game as favourites. New Zealand women are coming into the tournament without the much game time and that may play against them. Hence, despite New Zealand being the host side, our prediction is of India’s victory in the first game of cricket.

Top Batsman (Prediction):

Smriti Mandhana (IND) – 50+ runs

Top Bowler (Prediction):

Poonam Yadav (IND) – 2 or more wickets

Most Sixes (Prediction):

Smriti Mandhana (IND)
