Match Preview

South Africa came up with an inspired performance to put their first T20I series win on board this tour. They will look to level the series in this match with another good showing and put themselves in the best position to win the series too.

New Zealand team will be disappointed with this loss as they looked well in control to avert the chase till the last three overs. New Zealand will look to seal the series in this match so that they can test their bench strength. With less than a fortnight to go for the 2020 T20 World Cup in Australia, both teams will take every match as an important step in building momentum and finding their best possible combination for playing XI.

Teams Preview

New Zealand Women Preview

The New Zealand team was once again powered by Sophie Devine`s 77 to a good total of 153 runs. Suzie Bates looked good with the bat scoring 23 runs but was unfortunately run out due to a mix-up. New Zealand will hope their batting unit stands barring  Sophie Devine and get some form ahead of World Cup in remaining matches. Sophie Devine and Holly Hudgeston bowled well barring their last three overs of the match were they gave away 35 runs. They both picked 2 wickets each and were looking in the ominous form before the final overs. Amelia Kerr and Jess Kerr bowled economically and had combined figures of 7-0-31-1 in the match.

Key Players:

Sophie Devine – Sophie Devine has scores of 54, 61 & 77 in the three matches this series and she is making batting so easy with her elegance and poise. She has scored nearly 50% of the team’s total runs and we expect her to continue her purple patch in this match too.

Amelia Kerr – Amelia Kerr is slowly becoming one of the most reliable bowlers with figures of 2/17, 1/18 & 1/17 in the three matches with an economy less than 6 RPO in all the matches. She will be X-factor with her wrist spin going into the World Cup.

New Zealand Women Predicted Playing XI:

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

South Africa Women Preview

South African batting unit chased down a competitive total of 1534 runs in a thriller finish in the last ver. Dane Vankriek took over the captaincy from Chloe Tyron and both played a crucial role with the bat in the chase. Dane Vankriek steadied the chase after regular fall of wickets at the top with her 42 runs off 40 balls. Chloe Tyron finished the chase with her superb knock of 16-ball 34 in the final overs. Earlier, Sune Luus and Ayabonga Khaka took 2 wickets each to restrict New Zealand to 153 runs. Marizanne Kapp and Ismil Shabman did not take any wickets but bowled their quote of overs with an economy rate of around 7.5 RPO.

Key Players:

Chloe Tyron – Tyron`s unbeaten knock of 34 runs from 16 balls in the last three overs sealed the match in South Africa`s favor. She smashed 2 boundaries and 3 sixes when the team needed 35 runs off 18 balls.

Ayabonga Khaka – Khaka is bowling exceptionally well in the middle overs strangling the batsmen for runs. She has match figures of 2/24 & 2/14 in the last two matches. We can expect her to continue her good form with the ball.

All six matches in this tour have been won by teams batting second and we expect the captains to be aware of the stat and chase the total if they win the toss.

Winning Prediction

New Zealand batting is hugely dependent on Sophie Devine and other players need to contribute more. South Africa will be delighted with their thrilling win the last match and will be high on confidence.

New Zealand pips South Africa easily in the bowling department with the resources and quality of players available. We expect New Zealand to win this match and series.
