It is the 3rd game in the Commonwealth Games Women's Cricket Competition 2022 and New Zealand Women would play South Africa Women. New Zealand plays this format after a long break and the players would be eager to put up a good show in the game. The South Africa Women have been on a disastrous tour of England where they lost 0-3 in the recently concluded series.
South Africa Women haven’t fared well against New Zealand Women over the years. They have won only two games against them, and this would create confidence issues in the camp. Key players on the side are in poor form which adds to their problems. New Zealand is one of the strongest sides in this format, but we expect to see a close contest as both sides would be eying their first points of the tournament.
Sophie Devine’s side has played just one T20 game this year and she would be eager to start the tournament with a bang. The side has good batting strength at the top and bowlers who would like bowling in these conditions. Their record against South Africa Women is impressive and the Kiwi skipper shall look to extend that by winning this game and earning their first points.
Sophie Devine and Suzie Bates form an experienced opening pair, and they’d look to set up a good opening wicket stand. In the middle order Maddy Green, Amelia Kerr and Lea Tahuhu are excellent players in this format and the side would like them to build partnerships. Jessica McFadyen the young wicketkeeper is an exciting prospect, and she would like to do well in the finishers’ role with Brooke Halliday.
On the bowling front, the side would like a good show from Hannah Rowe and Fran Jonas with the new ball. They would enjoy these conditions. Devine, Lea Tahuhu, and Kerr bring years of experience to this attack, and they shall aim to exploit the weaknesses in South Africa’s batting lineup. Hayley Jensen and Halliday add to the side’s bowling options making it strong.

Sune Luus has a big challenge going into this game. Their current tour of England has been a complete disaster as they have lost across formats and haven’t had much to be proud about. However, the side has already gotten used to the conditions for more than a month and the South African skipper shall like to take advantage of it in this game.
Anneke Bosch has done well, and she would need to set up a big opening wicket stand with Lara Goodall in this game. Laura Wolvaardt, Chole Tryon, and Luus are experienced campaigners, but they have lacked form. The side would like to see a good show from them here. Trisha Chetty and Mignon du Preez have an important role to play down the order considering the lack of form in the middle order.
Shabnim Ismail and Ayabonga Khaka must strike early for the side to apply pressure on New Zealand who have a strong batting line-up. Nonkululeko Mlaba and Tryon haven’t done well in recent games and the side would need them to stand up to the challenge. Luus and Bosch shall be expected to do well in the supporting role for the side to win against a formidable opponent.

The skies over Birmingham would be overcast on July 30 and we might see showers during the game. The surface is flat, and this allows batters to score freely on this ground. Bowlers have little margin for error on this wicket. The side batting first shall need 160 on the board to feel safe on this wicket.
Edgbaston, Birmingham has been a paradise for batters. The wicket has gotten flatter in recent years which allows batters to play their strokes freely. Fast bowlers get assistance from the track when the ball is new and hard. It is a tough venue for the spinners as the ball doesn’t turn and they have to depend on their variety.
It has been a batting surface here and we have seen most sides winning games here after setting up big scores. The wicket tends to get slower as the game progresses and chasing scores becomes a challenge. The side winning the toss in this game is expected to bat first and aim at setting up a big total.
South Africa Women come here with their confidence low. They have failed to push their opponents in recent games. The middle order lacks form which is one of the biggest concerns for the team. They must stand up and deliver for them to apply pressure on New Zealand. The Kiwi Women have had an excellent record against South Africa and have a stronger batting line-up. This would put them ahead of South Africa Women in this game.
