NZ-W vs ENG-W Dream11 Prediction, Fantasy Cricket Tips, Playing 11, Injury Updates & Pitch Report For 1st T20I

Most of the English star players are still to make their way from India after the WPL tournament.

Preview

NZ-W vs ENG-W will clash against each other in the 1st T20I. After the successful end of the WPL 2024, it is time for international cricket once again. England are set to tour New Zealand for a five-match T20I series and three-match ODI series. It is a huge series with a lot of ICC championship points up for grabs in the ODI format. T20I is set the first stop as the two teams get ready to play the game in Dunedin on Tuesday.

New Zealand have a few players who will join the team late, as they were part of the WPL. Even without some of their senior-most players, the team will be starting as favourites for the series against England.

With a young side at her disposal, Heather Knight will be looking to make the best out of the situation. Most of the English star players are still to make their way from India after the WPL tournament.

Pitch Report

The University Oval in Dunedin has hosted three games so far, and each of them has been high-scoring. The shorter boundaries mean that there will be lots of fours and sixes on offer for the batters. The bowlers will get good help early with the new ball with the pace bowlers in particular doing well. The skipper who wins the toss will want to bowl first, with swing and seam likely to be on offer.


Captains: 9

Sophia Dunkley ENG-W | bat

The 25-year-old has a good record in the shortest format of the game and is considered one of the best batters. Dunkley has scored 761 runs from her 50 games with an average of 23 and a career strike rate of 115.

Heather Knight ENG-W | bat

England’s veteran batter is set to play her 108th T20 match for her national side. Knight without doubt is one of the best batters of this generation with the ability to flay any bowling attack on her day.

Suzie Bates NZ-W | BAT

With over 150 games and 4000 runs to her credit there is only one word to describe Suzie Bates and that is legendary. The Kiwi veteran is a huge name in the T20I format and will want to continue her sizzling form against England.

Amy Jones ENG-W | WK

The 30 year will be the player to watch out for during the opening game on Tuesday. Not only Amy Jones is a good wicketkeeper but also a very reliable batter who can play according to the situations.

Hannah Rowe NZ-W | bowl

The 27-year-old Hannah Rowe has been in and out of the Kiwi side in recent times. The All rounder will look to make use of the chance that she has gotten to make herself a permanent member of the side. There is no doubting the talents that Hannah Rowe has as she is a consistent performer in the domestic circuit.

Sarah Glenn ENG-W | bowl

At the age of 24, Sarah Glenn has already played 54 games for her side and picked 64 wickets. The English bowler has been one of the most talked about leg-spin bowlers in the women’s circuit for a while now.
