South Africa, on the other hand, will look to build some momentum with a consolation win in this match. Both teams will play with the bigger picture of World Cup and this will by no means be a dead rubber contest. This will be the last T20I international before the 2020 women`s World Cup.

South Africa Women Preview

South African batting unit crumbled like nine pins in the chase and where eventually bowled out for just 101 runs on board. Lizelle Lee showed a little promise with her 25 runs on top. Barring her Sune Luus, Dane Vankriek, and Mignon Du Preez crossed the 10-run mark while others were dismissed for single digit scores. Shabman Ismail was the only bowler to provide some control in the bowling with figures of 4-0-21-1 but was unfortunately injured while fielding. The rest of the bowlers gave runs at over 8 RPO easily. They have just 11 wickets to their name in this series with Ayabongha Khaka leading with 4 wickets.

Key Players:

Lizelle Lee – Lee has scores of 18,17,2, & 22 this series with the bat. She is short of runs and confidence t the top and will hope to regain form with a good knock in this match ahead of the World Cup.

Dane van Niekerk –  Niekerk is their highest run-getter this series with 77 runs and alone wicket in her three outings so far. She has a good economy rate below 6 RPPPO despite fewer wickets to her name.

South Africa Women Predicted Playing XI:

Mignon du Preez, Dane van Niekerk (c), Trisha Chetty (wk), Shabnim Ismail, Chloe Tryon, Sune Luus, Lizelle Lee, Ayabonga Khaka, Laura Wolvaardt, Nadine de Klerk, Nonkululeko Mlaba

Weather Conditions

Rain is never away from Dunedin and we expect 60% chances of rain interruption in this match.

Venue Details

Dunedin is traditionally green with assistance for pace bowlers early on in the match. Batsmen may enjoy scoring once the cherry gets older and softer. We can expect scores in range of 150-160 runs in this pitch.

Toss: To Bowl

Six out of seven results have favoured chasing teams this tour and expect captains to stick their mantra in this match too.

Winning Prediction

New Zealand Women batting is working around their skipper Sophie Devine with crucial contributions from Rachel Priest and Suzie Bates so far. Their bowling unit is hunting in packs and they have 6-7 bowling options in their playing XI.

South Africa is struggling to put a good performance with both batting and bowling units. They need to sort their best XI before the World cup. We expect New Zealand to finish the series with yet another win.

New Zealand will win the match and win the series 4-1!
