Hosts England Women would look to book a berth in the semifinals of the Commonwealth Games Women's Cricket Competition 2022 as they play South Africa Women. England Women come here with a win against Sri Lanka Women in their opening game and they have got their first points. South Africa Women made a poor start losing against New Zealand Women in their first game.
South Africa Women were hammered by England Women in the recent T20 series where they lost all the three games they played. This would put pressure on them. England has had an excellent record playing at home in recent years and they would look to continue the same way. However, this is a tricky format, and we would wait and see how South Africa takes on the challenge.
Heather Knight is likely to be back in the side after missing out on the game against Sri Lanka Women. The 5-wicket win in the last game wasn’t as convincing as the hosts would have liked. It will be a tougher challenge for the side against the South Africans and Knight would like to register a big win and take her side closer to a berth in the semifinal.
Sophia Dunkley and Danielle Wyatt didn’t score much in the last game and the side would need them to put up a good show here. Knight’s return would strengthen the batting line-up and she will look to set up partnerships with Natalie Sciver and Alice Capsey who played an important knock in the last game. Amy Ellen Jones and Maia Bouchier will have to excel in the finishers’ role.
Katherine Brunt and Issy Wong bowled brilliantly with the new ball, and this would add to the side’s confidence in this game. Sophie Ecclestone used the conditions well and she will look to bowl the same way. Alice Capsey and Natalie Sciver are experienced bowlers, and they will have important roles to play with Sarah Glenn.

Sophie Devine’s side would be under pressure after their loss against New Zealand Women in the first game. The side bowled poorly in the last game to allow New Zealand to set up a big total and fell short by 13 runs. They can’t afford to lose this game and must come up with a good show as English women know the conditions well and have their key players in good form.
Anneke Bosch and Tazmin Brits feel quickly in the last game, and they would have to set up a strong partnership in this game. Mignon du Preez, Laura Wolvaardt, and Chole Tryon got starts in the last game and this would add to the side’s confidence. They will have to do well. Luus played well down the order in the previous game, and she will have to add runs with Delmi Tucker and Sinalo Jafta.
Shabnim Ismail and Nonkululeko Mlaba came up with good spells in the last game. The side would want them to put England on the backfoot with early wickets. Ayabonga Khaka had a poor outing against New Zealand, and she will have to come up with a better spell. Tryon, Anneke Bosch, and Tucker have key roles in the supporting act as England has a strong batting line-up.

We expect to see a cloudy day at Birmingham on August 02. The track would be flat as we have already seen in the games that have been played. Bowlers would get some assistance from the weather and batters shall have to be watchful. A score of 160 runs would be good for the side that bats first in this game.
Edgbaston, Birmingham is an ideal venue for batters as the ball comes to the bat nicely allowing them to play their strokes freely. Fast bowlers get the ball to move when it is hard and new and have been successful. It is a difficult venue for spinners as the wicket doesn’t let them grip the ball.
This is an afternoon game, and the batting conditions are expected to be best at the start of the game. Bowlers would enjoy bowling on this track in the second innings of the game. Hence, we believe the side winning the toss in this game won’t have any hesitation in opting to bat first.
South Africa Women would have to win this game to stay alive in the tournament. Their bowlers had a poor outing against New Zealand Women and the side would have to come up with a better show here. England has dominated South Africa in the past. They are enjoying a dream run at home and this would make them favorites to win here.
