New Zealand Women

The New Zealand Women cricket team are going to be led by Sophie Devine in the tournament. An inspiration to the team, she has been recently appointed as a skipper and has already made a mark through her performances and captaincy. 

New Zealand are going to be heavily dependent on the likes of Devine, Suzie Bates, Lea Tahuhu and Rachel Priest if they are to move forward in the tournament. They are coming off a fine series win over South Africa in their own conditions and would be looking to carry that confidence forward. 

Our prediction is of the same playing eleven that played the last warm-up cricket game against Thailand. 

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

Sri Lanka Women

Sri Lanka Women are going to be led by Chamari Attapattu in this cricket tournament. She has been their leader for quite some time now and would be looking to beat at least one big side in the competition.

Their side is once again going to rely heavily on Chamari Attapattu for their runs. Attapattu has been their highest scorer over the past year and the onus will be on her yet again to create an upset or two. 

Our prediction is of the same playing eleven that beat England in their warm-up game.   

Here is our prediction of Sri Lanka Women’s playing XI:

  • GWHM Perera 
  • AC Jayangani
  • H Madavi
  • H Karunaratne
  • NND de Silva
  • MAA Sanjeewani
  • HASD Siriwardene
  • KADA Kanchana
  • WK Dilhari
  • KDU Prabodhani
  • BMSM Kumari

Expert Prediction: NZW vs SLW

New Zealand Women will begin their World Cup campaign against the Sri Lankan team. With West Indies on a downward spiral, New Zealand are one of the strong favourites to make it to the semifinals alongside Australia, England and India. 

New Zealand are coming into this tournament with a series win over South Africa Women in their own backyard. They won the series by a margin of 3-1 and it was largely brought about by skipper Sophie Devine. She recently became the first cricketer to reach fifties in five consecutive T20 cricket games. 

She was also very successful in the recently concluded women’s Big Bash League. She hammered nine half-centuries in 16 innings and showed remarkable consistency. Fair to say, a lot of New Zealand’s success in this tournament is going to ride on her shoulders. 

Sri Lanka are heavily reliant on their skipper Chamari Attapattu. She has been their leading run-scorer by a distance over the past couple of years. They would like to take heart from the warm-up win over one of the tournament’s favourites, England. It was also a smashing win by ten wickets while chasing the score of 123 runs set by England. 

Our prediction is of a one-sided win for New Zealand Women in this cricket game. Sri Lanka Women would be hoping for another superlative performance from their skipper as that would be their only chance to compete in this game of cricket.
