Match Preview

South Africa Women have a big challenge on hand as this being the first game of their tour of New Zealand. They have a poor record against New Zealand Women and have never won a game on Kiwi soil. The new skipper of the side Dane van Niekerk will look to change that and take an early lead in the series.

New Zealand Women will not make it any easy for the visitors as they have a good record at home. New Zealand Women have their own problems and haven’t played a single ODI game in over 8 months and it will be interesting to see how they get back to competitive cricket. They have also fared poorly in the last two series and have won only once in their last six games. Given the context we expect this game to be a closely fought one.

Teams Preview

New Zealand Women

Sophie Devine will be leading her side for the first time and the opener will want to start off her captaincy career with a win. She is leading a good team and in these conditions, they are a better side than the South Africans. Devine will want her players to play to their potential and win this game.

The side will expect a good start from Sophie Devine and Suzie Bates. They are highly experienced players and have done well in the past. Middle-order is strong for the side with players like Lauren Down, Katey Martin and Maddy Green. With Katie Perkins and Hayley Jensen down the order, they have a good batting line-up. The side will need a good start with the new ball from Holly Huddleston and Rosemary Mair. They are known to bowl tight spells. Hayley Jensen, Sophie Devine and Amelia Kerr have to check the run flow in the middle overs for the side to win the game.

Katie Perkins, Leigh Kasperek, Hayley Jensen, Bernadine Bezuidenhout, Lauren Down, Amelia Kerr, Suzie Bates, Holly Huddleston, Sophie Devine, Rachel Priest, Rosemary Mair

South Africa Women

Dane van Niekerk comes back as skipper after a gap of almost one year and she will have a big challenge at hand given the side’s poor record in New Zealand. Their recent form hasn’t been great as well. It’s the first game of the series and the skipper will want her players to put in their best effort and take an early lead.

The side will need a good Laura Wolvaardt and Lizelle Lee at the top. Both these players have good abilities and need to provide the side with a good start. Dane van Niekerk, Trisha Chetty and Suné Luus add strength to the middle order for the side. In Chloe Tryon they have a good finisher down the order.

Shabnim Ismail and Masabata Klaas will have to pick early wickets with the new ball. It is their bowling attack that will need to make good use of the conditions in the game. Tumi Sekhukhune is a good prospect in the middle overs and the side will need Ayabonga Khaka, Chloe Tryon and Suné Luus to control the run rate.

South Africa Women Actual Playing XI:

Masabata Klaas, Laura Wolvaardt, Sune Luus, Shabnim Ismail, Lizelle Lee, Trisha Chetty, Chloe Tryon, Dane van Niekerk, Ayabonga Khaka, Marizanne Kapp, Mignon du Preez

Pitch And Weather Conditions

It will be clear skies over Auckland on January 25 and we should have a good game of cricket. The pitch will offer some assistance to the quick bowlers early on but batters who get their eyes in will be able to score runs here. The side that bats first will have to eye a score of around 250 runs to feel comfortable on this surface.

Venue Details

Eden Park Outer Oval is known to be a sporting wicket. The ball does move around in the early overs but the batters can hit on the up as the pace and bounce on this surface is true. The shorter boundaries around the square allow batters to free their arms easily on this surface. Slow bowlers have done well here in the past.

Toss Prediction

The wicket at Eden Park will be a flat one as it is the middle of the season in New Zealand and the ball would come on to the bat nicely allowing the batters to play their shots. The side that wins the toss is likely to bat first on this surface and aim at a big score.

Winning Prediction

It has been quite a while since the two teams have played each other. South Africa Women come into this tournament after a string of losses they suffered last year and shall look to do well here.

The Kiwi side too hasn’t played the game for a while but has a very good record against their opponents. Playing at home they will start ahead of the South Africans in this game.

Expect New Zealand Women to register a comfortable win!
