Hosts England Women would take on New Zealand in the bronze-medal game of Commonwealth Games Women's Cricket Competition 2022. It was a heartbreak for English Women as they failed to get over the finishing line against India Women after starting as favorites in the game. New Zealand Women put up a good effort against Australia Women, but it wasn’t enough. Both sides would be eying for a podium finish in this game.
England Women have dominated New Zealand Women in the past. The last ten games between the two teams have seen England win on nine occasions. They had defeated them earlier in the tournament and shall carry that confidence. It will be interesting to see if the Kiwis can change the script as they have odds stacked up against them.
Natalie Sciver would be extremely upset with the 4-run loss against India Women in the semifinal. The side had been in excellent form this year, and this was only their second loss of the year. They did well with the bat and the ball but failed to seal it in the final moments of the game. Sciver shall like to put that behind and finish with a bronze medal in this game.
Sophia Dunkley and Danielle Wyatt did well opening the batting in the last game and they would look to set up a good stand at the start. Natalie Sciver and Amy Ellen Jones shall have to do well in the middle order along with Alice Capsey taking on the Kiwi bowling attack. Maia Bouchier and Katherine Brunt have their hitting abilities and the side would need a good show from the pair down the order.
Katherine Brunt and Sophie Ecclestone would need to deliver early blows with the new ball as Kiwis have shown signs of struggle at the start. Sciver and Issy Wong got their lines wrong in the last game and they must come up with better spells in this game for the side to win. Sarah Glenn and Capsey would have to do well in the supporting role.

Sophie Devine’s side did put pressure on the Australian side in the last game, but they failed to bring down the world champions losing by 5 wickets. Their inability to show consistency at the top cost them the match. The Kiwi skipper would like her side to make a fresh start to this game and finish third. Their record against England has been extremely poor and the side would have to punch above its weight to win here.
Sophie Devine hit form in the last game, but she would need support from her partner Suzie Bates who has struggled. The middle order has been inconsistent, and the side would need runs from Georgia Plimmer, Amelia Kerr, and Lea Tahuhu in the middle order to apply pressure on the English girls. Brooke Halliday and Maddy Green shall need to add quick runs down the order.
It will be a tough challenge for their bowlers where early wickets would be needed from Fran Jonas and Hayley Jensen. Lea Tahuhu bowled well in the last game, and she would be confident about her form. The side would expect to see tight spells from Amelia Kerr and Devine who haven’t been consistent.

We expect to see clear skies over Birmingham on August 07. The track would be flat, and runs would be made as we have seen in the earlier games this season. Fast bowlers would get some assistance in the early overs, but they have little margin for error. A score of 160 runs would be good for the side that bats first in this game.
Edgbaston, Birmingham is a great batting surface. Batters have done well here in the past as the ball hits the bat hard allowing them to play their strokes. Fast bowlers generate pace and bounce from this track in the early overs. Spinners haven't had the best record as this track has very little for them.
It is an afternoon game and batting conditions have been best at the start as we have seen in this tournament. Bowling conditions get better as the game progresses. Hence, the side winning the toss here shall have no hesitation in opting to bat first.
Both sides would be upset having failed to qualify for the gold medal match. New Zealand Women would be under pressure as they don’t have a great record against England Women. Their batters shall need to show consistency for the side to win here. It has been an excellent season for England Women other than their loss against India in the last game. They know the conditions well and this would make them favorites.
