South Africa Women Preview

South African batting unit failed to build on their good start and never really got any momentum and finished with just 116 runs on board. All top four batsmen scored between 17 & 33 but neither failed to convert it into a fifty. Laura Wolvaart (33 runs) and Nadine De Klerk (20 runs) struggled to time the ball in middle overs and scored at less than 100 strike rate. Their bowling unit was never in a chance to contain Kiwis for this paltry target and ended up losing the match in just 12.2 overs. Tumi Sekhkhune picked up the lone wicket in the match. Sune Luus, Dane Van Kriek & Marizanne Kapp are expected to return to playing XI in this match.

Key Players:

Lizelle Lee – Lee started the match in good fashion with her 15-ball 17 but failed to continue. She scored 158 runs in the recent three-match ODI series and will look to continue her form to the T20Is.

Sune Luus – Sune Luus picked up 6 wickets in the last ODI match and missed the first T20I match is expected to return to the playing XI in this match. We can expect her to change the fortunes of the South African team.

Lizelle Lee, Laura Wolvaardt, Mignon du Preez, Nadine de Klerk, Chloe Tryon (c), Trisha Chetty (wk), Shabnim Ismail, Tumi Sekhukhune, Sune Luus, Dane van Niekerk, Marizanne Kapp
