NZW vs ENGW Team Previews

New Zealand Women

New Zealand Women will be determined to bounce back after winning just one match during their five-T20I series against England Women. The longer format offers a bit more margin for error, as both teams contune to prepare for the T20 World Cup later this year.

The batting form of Amelia Kerr and Suzie Bates during the WT20I series will buoy the hosts going into the opening WODIs. Kerr hit 114 runs to Bates' 113. Bates batted one more time than Kerr - and both struck the ball at over 100 runs per 100 deliveries. They'll be key here as well.

Kerr also topped New Zealand's wicket-taking ranks in that series. She claimed six victims and, as one of the best all-rounders in the women's game, can add plenty of value with bat and ball against challenging English opponents. Anticipate a big performance from Kerr.

New Zealand Women Playing 11

Suzie Bates, Bernadine Bezuidenhout, Amelia Kerr, Georgia Plimmer, Maddy Green, Brooke Halliday, Isabella Gaze, Hannah Rowe, Jess Kerr, Lea Tahuhu, Fran Jonas.

England Women

England Women have again shown why they are such a dominant global force. Away from home and under pressure, they've wrapped up a comfortable WT20I series victory over New Zealand and are the firm favourites going into this opening WODI and the rest of the tour.

They can lean on Maia Boucher and Heather Knight for more telling performances with the bat. Knight averaged over 60 and Boucher more than 55 in the recent WT20I series. They have batted well in foreign conditions - and should enjoy the pitch in Wellington as well.

Charlotte Dean is a big asset with the ball for England. The spinner has claimed seven wickets in her last five matches against New Zealand. With the 2024 T20 World Cup set to be hosted in Bangladesh, Dean will be important in slow, turning sub-continental conditions.

NZW vs ENGW Toss Prediction

The Basin Reserve in Wellington will host this series opener. Two of the last three WODIs at this ground have brought decisions to bat first.

It's likely the team to win the toss this time will take their cue from that record and opt to bat first, too, on a relatively fresh pitch.

Read our guide on toss predictions to learn how we analyze and come up with our tips.
