New Zealand Women
New Zealand Women are being led by Sophie Devine in this T20 cricket series. They have won three out of the four T20 games played so far and have already sealed the series.
In the last match, New Zealand Women set the target of 171 runs through yet another strong performance from skipper Sophie Devine. She played a magnificent innings of 105 runs of just 65 balls and helped them to a good total. Then during the defence, AM Peterson took three wickets by giving just 14 runs in four overs and JM Kerr took two wickets by giving 17 runs, and set up a fine win.
Our prediction is of the same playing eleven that played their last T20 game.
Here is our prediction of New Zealand Women’s playing XI:
- Sophie Devine
- Lauren Down
- HNK Jensen
- Suzannah Wilson Bates
- AC Kerr
- KJ Martin
- ML Green
- AM Peterson
- HR Huddleston
- JM Kerr
- RA Mair
South Africa Women
South Africa Women are being led by D van Niekerk in the T20 cricket series. They have won only one match out of the four games played and lost the T20 International series to New Zealand.
In the fourth T20, having to chase 171 runs, their batting struggled to make any significant contribution and therefore lost the game by 69 runs. They were yet again poor with the ball and with the World T20 beginning soon, they will need to address it.
Our prediction is of a couple of changes to their playing eleven for this game.
Here is our prediction of South Africa Women’s playing XI:
- Lizelle Lee
- Laura Wolvaardt
- D Van Niekerk
- Sune Luus
- Mignon du Preez
- Chloe Tryon
- Trisha Chetty
- Shabnim Ismail
- Ayabonga Khaka
- TS Sekhukhune
- M Kapp
Expert Prediction: NZW vs SAW
New Zealand registered the T20 International series win against South Africa in the five-match cricket series. They sealed the cricket series courtesy of their third win over South Africa in the last game.
New Zealand Women would be extremely pleased with their performances in this series. Everybody has been at their best including their skipper, Sophie Devine, who has been inspirational with scoring 54*, 61, 77 and 105 so far in this series.
South Africa Women, on the other hand, came with lots of expectations in New Zealand. It was hailed as their best side and a lot was expected from them, but it did not quite work out for them at least in the T20 format.
After winning the ODI cricket series, it was expected that South Africa would trouble New Zealand in the T20s as well, but they simply failed to get going. The senior players like M Kapp and M du Preez could not produce the performances that we have come to expect from them in this series. Their bowling too did not look penetrative enough and as a result, they ended up losing the series quite easily.
Looking at the recent form, our prediction is of yet another win for New Zealand.
Astrology Prediction: NZW vs SAW
The stars are once again shining brightly on the New Zealand cricket and will continue to shine for the near future. They have a fine T20 side and they are in red hot form at the moment. Hence, our prediction is of New Zealand’s win in this game of cricket.
Toss prediction? – The team winning the toss will look to bat second as New Zealand’s ground makes it difficult to guess the best score batting first. Hence, our prediction is that the team winning the toss would like to bowl first.
