The 16th match in the Women’s World Cup will bring South Africa Women up against hosts New Zealand Women. Both the teams have had contrary results so far in the tournament. Proteas kicked off their campaign by defeating. Bangladesh Women, followed by similar results against Pakistan and defending champions England. Meanwhile, the hosts have not been able to live up to expectations as they faced embarrassing defeat against West Indies Women in the opening game. While the hosts got back some momentum in the next two games against Bangladesh Women and Indian Women, later they got outplayed by Australia Women.
New Zealand Women:
Sophie Devine is a quality batter at the top order and can do well. She scored 108 in 127 balls in the game against West Indies Women and must be added to the fantasy team. Amelia Kerr is another quality all-rounder in the side and is a mandatory pick. She has scored 64 runs in three games, including a fifty against India, while picking 5-wickets in the tournament so far. Amy Satterthwaite has amassed 150-runs in three games so far and has maintained her reputation by contributing in every game. Lea Tahuhu is leading the pace attack for her side as she has picked 9-wickets in three games and has been in incredible form.
South Africa Women:
Laura Wolvaardt’s vital contribution at the top of the order has been one of the reasons behind her side’s incredible performance in the tournament. Her scores in the tournament have been 41, 75 and 77. She should be a mandatory pick in the fantasy team. Skipper Sune Luus has also been in good form recently and has performed well with the bat. She has scored 25, 62 and 36 in the tournament so far. Kapp is a quality all-rounder from the squad and must be included in the fantasy team. She has amassed 81 runs and picked 8-wickets, including a fiffer against England. Shabnim Ismail and Ayabonga Khaka are two top-seeded bowlers from the team, who must be considered while forming a fantasy team.
