The third T20I match between New Zealand Women and England Women will take place at Wellington Regional Stadium on Sunday. The hosts have been underwhelming to say the least as England Women will enter having already secured the series with wins in previous games. The women from New Zealand will take on to ground to avoid the whitewash by visitors at their home.
The previous contest was a low scoring game with England managing to reach the target runs with 6 wickets in hand and 16 balls to spare following hosts’ 123/9 at the end of their 20 overs. England triumphed at the end thanks to Freya Davies’ individual brilliance as she scalped 4 wickets while conceding only 23 runs.
The battle for the win in final T20I will surely be exciting how the previous two games concluded. England have so far displayed peak performance levels in the first two games, showing excellence with bat as well as willow. However, if England are to return with a perfect record to home, they will try to be at their best again, while New Zealand will also want to avoid white wash at their own ground.
Notably, pitch has favoured bowling till now, and therefore, it will be wise to have as many good bowlers in the squad along with some hard hitters and all-rounders.
