Match: ENG-W vs NZ-W T20 Match Prediction
Time: 07 Aug, 02:30 PM (IST)
Series: CWG Womens 3rd Place Play-off
Venue: Edgbaston Cricket Ground – Edgbaston, England
ENG-W vs NZ-W Info:
- Nat Sciver hit 41 runs from 43 balls against India Women and we are backing the England Women’s captain to be their highest run scorer in this game. Sophie Ecclestone had a rare off day on Saturday but has already taken five wickets in the competition. She is our pick for England Women’s top wicket taker against New Zealand Women.
- Suzie Bates averages 43.66 in this campaign and the New Zealand Women’s opener is our tip for their highest run scorer against England Women. With the ball, Lea Tahuhu took 3-20 against Australia Women in the semi-final and is a strong choice for New Zealand Women’s top wicket taker in this match.
- England Women have a stronger batting order with even their lower order players capable of hitting regular boundaries. We recommend backing England Women to hit over 15.5 fours in the game.

Weather & Pitch Report:
With an hour earlier start than in other morning games in the tournament, there will be higher levels of humidity in the opening overs.
Saturday’s semi-finals showed that the pitch has become somewhat two-paced over the course of the tournament. As a result pace bowlers are finding more joy. We expect a par score to be no higher than 150.
Both teams lost the toss and lost their games on Saturday. We predict that New Zealand will want to bat first whereas England will look to field first.

ENG-W vs NZ-W Team News:
ENG-W Team News:
In other tournaments, ordinarily, teams may give some fringe players a run-out in the third and fourth place play-off games. However, with a Commonwealth Games bronze medal on the line, we expect England to be unchanged for the fourth successive time in the tournament.
NZ-W Team News:
The White Ferns gave an international debut to 18 year-old Georgia Plimmer in the semi-final defeat to Australia Women. She looked at home at this level and hit three boundaries on her way to 17 from 16 balls. There are no injuries from Saturday’s match and we do not expect to see any changes.

Who will win today’s match: ENG-W vs NZ-W Women T20 Match Fantasy Team
Before a semi-final, this is the last game that any player involved wants to even countenance their involvement in. However, this is where they are and they will probably get no other or very few other opportunities to win a Commonwealth Games medal. We are predicting England Women to beat New Zealand Women.
England Women are favourites to beat New Zealand Women
ENG-W Key Players:
the stand-in skipper top scored for England on Saturday and hit three boundaries before being one of three England Women’s run-outs.
the experienced pace bowler dismissed the dangerous Smriti Mandhana in the semi-final and would have finished with far better figures than 1-30 if easy catches had been taken.
the left-arm spinner went wicketless for the first time in the tournament and in international games this summer on Saturday. She will be determined to make amends in this game on a spinning wicket.
NZ-W Key Players:
the skipper and opening batter gave her side every chance with her highest knock of the tournament. She hit six fours and a six on the Edgbaston pitch in the semi-final.
the opener got a golden duck in Saturday’s game which gave a huge early advantage to Australia Women. She is still in the running for the highest run scorer in the tournament award.
the 31 year old medium fast bowler was not even picked in the original New Zealand Women’s squad for this tournament but dismissed all three of Australia Women’s top three in the semi-final.
ENG-W vs NZ-W Team Form:
ENG-W Team Form:
- England Women were sloppy in the field against India and that ultimately cost them a place in the final and ended their winning run of games in this format.
NZ-W Team Form:
- New Zealand Women pushed Australia Women hard in the semi-final but, although there were only three balls left at the end, the result had not been in doubt for a while.
