South Africa vs New Zealand Women
ICC Women’s T20 World Cup Match Prediction & Tips
Time: 13 Feb, 10:30 PM (IST)
Series: ICC Women’s T20 World Cup Match-7
Venue: Boland Park – Paarl, South Africa
SA-W vs NZ-W Dream11 Prediction:
- Laura Wolvaardt has an excellent WODI record against New Zealand Women and is a brilliant batter across all formats. The opener is well worth backing as South Africa’s highest run scorer on Monday evening. Shabnim Ismail has taken 116 WT20I wickets and the pace bowler is our pick for South Africa’s top wicket taker in this game.
- Although she got a golden duck on Saturday, Suzie Bates is a very talented cricketer and we expect her to top score for New Zealand Women at the top of the order in this match. With the ball, Lea Tahuhu took 3-37 against Australia Women and she is a strong choice for New Zealand Women’s top wicket taker against South Africa Women.
- With over 3600 WT20I runs to her name, we expect to see Suzie Bates back in form in this game. We recommend selecting her to hit over 31.5 runs

Weather & Pitch Report:
Clear skies with the humidity levels increasing to over 70% by the end of the game. The temperature will fall from the mid-20s to the low-20s across the match.
There is some turn in this wicket but also some pace, particularly in the evening games. Any score over 180 will be very hard to chase down in the second innings.
Both teams won the toss and chose to field first before being beaten in their opening matches but we expect both skippers to decide to field first again if they win the toss ahead of this clash.

SA-W vs NZ-W TEAM NEWS:
SA-W Team News:
There is a different kind of pressure on the hosts of a tournament than on the favourites and South Africa Women will be keen to play this match as the underdogs. They were by no means poor against Sri Lanka Women and improvements from all players will be enough to make them far more competitive.
NZ-W Team News:
Although it was an embarrassing margin of defeat for New Zealand Women against Australia Women, they will know that it is very rare for both their opening batters to get golden ducks. We do not expect to see any changes to their XI for this match.

After very disappointing results for both South Africa Women and New Zealand Women on Friday and Saturday, we expect both teams to approach this game with a positive attitude and look to be attacking from the start. New Zealand Women saw their two top players, both openers, dismissed for golden ducks, and that went a long way to contributing to their defeat. We are predicting a close and competitive game but are backing New Zealand Women to win.
New Zealand Women are favorites to beat South Africa Women
SA-W Key Players:
Laura Wolvaardt –
the 23 year old opener struggled to get going against Sri Lanka Women but still hit 18 runs. She very rarely does not make a contribution in successive games.
Sune Luus –
the captain top scored with 28 runs from 27 balls against Sri Lanka Women. Her attitude was clear hitting the only six of the match and we expect her to again be aggressive with the bat in this match.
Shabnim Ismail –
the pace bowler bowled the only maiden over of Match 1 and also took a wicket. She is a consistent performer at this level for South Africa Women.
NZ-W Key Players:
Suzie Bates –
the opener could not have got off to a worst start in the tournament but she has been in excellent form for Otago back home and will back herself to perform in this clash.
Amelia Kerr –
the all-rounder was one of only a couple of New Zealand Women players to emerge with any credit from the defeat on Saturday but showed that she is a talent with both bat and ball.
Lea Tahuhu –
the right-arm medium fast bowler dismissed both Australia Women openers and also got the wicket of the in-form Ashleigh Gardner on this pitch.
SA-W vs NZ-W Team Forms:
SA-W Team Form:
South Africa Women had impressed by winning the Tri-Nation Series ahead of their opening game and will be hoping that the defeat to Sri Lanka Women was a one-off.
NZ-W Team Form:
New Zealand Women’s strong run of successive wins in this format was brought to an end with the defeat on Saturday.
