NZW vs ENGW Match Preview

England Women have lost only one match during this eight-match limited-overs tour of New Zealand. The home side have won only one, but could pick up a second here, but are going to have to get a lot of things right if they want to pull one back against a dominant touring team.

Amy Jones is a great option for the wicketkeeper-batter berth in your Dream11 team. She hit 92 not out in the second WODI and followed that up with 48 in the third. Jones has been solid behind the stumps and could be good for a few more catches and stumpings this time.

Tammy Beaumont is another England Women star you should really think about selecting. She hit back after falling for a duck in the previous match by hitting 81 in the next. The hard-hitting opener is a formidable force - and capable of scoring big runs, quickly and freely.

Bowling-wise, Nat Sciver-Brunt is a must have in your team. She is a strong seamer and bowled with good pace and accuracy to take three wickets in the second WODI. This third WODI will also be played in Hamilton, where Sciver-Brunt has become used to conditions and is again primed for success.

Among the New Zealand Women XI, go for Brooke Halliday. She is a good middle-order pick after hitting a half-century in the previous match. Isabella Gaze, if you are not going to select Jones as your wicketkeeper, could be a good option as well. She hit 47 to Halliday's 57 last time out.

Charlie Dean is the obvious choice when picking through the spinners. The England Women star has been in prolific form for an extended period. This bodes well for England's Women's T20 World Cup campaign later this year. But do weigh up Fran Jonas as well. She is a solid specialist slow bowler in her own right, too.

Weather Report

No rain is forecast in Hamilton on the day of the match. We should get in a full fixture. The team to win the toss will likely opt to bat first, as England Women did in the previous fixture at this venue.

Pitch Report

A first-innings total of 240 or more could be competitive at Seddon Park in Hamilton. The pitch might prove slower, if the same strip that was used in the second WODI is used for the third.

Notable stats

Beaumont in form

Beaumont hit 81 in the previous match and came close to collecting a 10th century in WODI cricket.

Team News

New Zealand Women will be without the injured Rosemary Mair and are waiting on the fitness of Bernadine Bezuidenhout, who was absent injured during the home side's innings in the second WODI. England Women will likely retain their winning XI.
