England Women vs New Zealand Women Predictions

England and New Zealand Women to Fight for the Top Spot in Group B

New Zealand and England Women will lock horns in the 12th match of the women’s T20 competition in Commonwealth Games 2022. They will meet in this Group B fixture at Edgbaston in Birmingham on Thursday, 4th August. The fixture is crucial for both the teams as a win secures them a top spot in Group B, avoiding Australia in the semi-final.

England Women, playing in their own backyard, have been superb in the ongoing tournament at the CWG 2022. They have played two matches and have won both, with net run-rate reading a solid 1.251. England’s most recent game was against South Africa on Tuesday, which they won by 26 runs.

The 17yr old Alice Capsey top scored yet again, scoring 50 off 37 while Amy Jones (36* off 23) and Katherine Brunt (38* off 23) made crucial contribution at the back end to take them to 167/5. Sophie Ecclestone, Nat Sciver and Brunt were terrific with the ball, conceding 55 runs in 10 overs combined and picking a wicket each as they defended the target successfully.

Sophie Devine’s New Zealand occupy the top spot in Group B with two out of two wins and a net run-rate of 1.450. They hammered Sri Lanka in the last fixture by 45 runs on the back of an all-round team performance. Suzie Bates was the top scorer with 34 off 32 while Lea Tahuhu smashed eight-ball 22* at the back end to push New Zealand to 147/7. Hayley Jensen was excellent with the ball, snaring 3 for 5 in her four overs. Other bowlers also chipped in as they restricted Sri Lankan women to 102/8.

Team News

England Women have a strong and deep batting line-up, starting from Danni Wyatt and Sophia Dunkley at the top to Sophie Ecclestone down to no. 8. Nat Sciver hasn’t quite got going in the last few matches but remains a key player with her all-round skillset.

England have been without their regular skipper Heather Knight due to a hip injury but she’s expected to be fit for this game. The bowling attack comprises a pace trio of Katherine Brunt, Issy Wong and Freya Kemp while Sophie Ecclestone and Sarah Glenn form a potent spin duo.

New Zealand have a good blend of youth and experience. Sophie Devine and Suzie Bates have been solid at the top of the order but the middle order can be a concern. Lea Tahuhu, Hayley Jensen, Hannah Rowe and Rosemary Mair form the pace quartet.

Amelia Kerr offers a quality legspin option along with her batting while Eden Carson has impressed with her off-break bowling. It is unlikely that White Ferns will make any changes but if they do, Fran Jonas and Jessica McFadyen could be good options.

Key Players

Suzie Bates: The veteran all-rounder has been one of the pillars of the New Zealand women’s cricket team for a decade and half. She has an outstanding record in T20I cricket, having scored over 3500 runs at an average of 30.47 while striking at 110.74. The opening batter has smashed one century and 22 fifties at this level. Bates has been magnificent in the ongoing competition, smashing 91* off 64 in the first game and 34 off 32 in the second.

Sophie Ecclestone: The world no. 1 bowler in both white-ball formats, Ecclestone is an incredible asset. She has snared 77 wickets from 55 T20 internationals at an economy of 5.94 with best figures of 4/18. The left arm spinner has been in great form, picking nine wickets in the last five T20Is, including 3/25 and 1/21 at the CWG 2022. Ecclestone is feisty striker down the order as she recently showed with a 12-ball 33*.
