Match Preview

New Zealand dominated South Africa for the second time in consecutive T20Is in a similar fashion. New Zealand team has been winning matches consistently in the T20I format and is looking like a force to reckon in the upcoming world cup.

South Africa on the other end is struggling to translate their ODI form into the T20Is. They are in a precarious position this series and one more loss would give the series win to Kiwis with two matches remaining. South Africa will need to bring their best game and try to beat Upbeat Kiwis in their backyard.

New Zealand Women Preview

New Zealand scampered through another low total chase with the help of half-century from their skipper Sophie Devine. Maddy Green (27 runs) & Sophie Devine (61 runs) shared a 72-run partnership in the middle to lift their team from 27/2. Their middle order is hugely untested in both the matches. Rosemary Mair and Lea Tahuhu took 2 wickets each and never allowed South Africa to build any momentum. Sophie Devine, Amelia Kerr, and Hayley Jensen chipped in with a wicket each to bowl out the opposition. 
Key Players:
Sophie Devine – Sophie Devine has four 50+ scores in the last 5 T20I matches with 54 & 61 in this series so far. She has hit 9 sixes in this series while no other player has more than 4 sixes so far. 
Lea Tahuhu – Tahuhu broke the back of middle-order with wickets of Van Niekerk and Chloe Tryon. She gave away just 10 runs in her quota of 4 overs and strangled the opposition.

Mignon Du Preez top scored with 40 runs and shared a 50+ partnership with Dane van Niekerk (25 runs) to revive the team from a dire situation of 39/3.

Weather Conditions

Wellington is expected to have a partly cloudy climate on the matchday with 10% chance of rain. We will get a full match with no interruption of overs whatsoever. 

Venue Details

Wellington is one of the slower pitches and spinners might get more purchase here. Batsmen will look to score on the hard new ball in the powerplays. We can expect scores in the range of 140-150 runs in this pitch. 

Toss: To Bowl

New Zealand won both the matches chasing the total, so both captains will look to chase the total in this match. 

Winning Prediction

New Zealand is playing an impressive brand of cricket in the T20I format with their skipper Sophie Devine leading from the front.

South Africa needs to sort their best XI before it becomes too late in this series. Their batting unit needs to put more runs on board to give a tough fight. New Zealand looks impressive so far and we expect them to continue their winning momentum.  

New Zealand will win the match and win the series 3-0!
