NZ-W vs EN-W Fantasy Prediction: New Zealand Women vs England Women 2nd ODI – 26 February 2021 (Christchurch). Sophie Devine, Heather Knight, and Nat Sciver are the players to look out for in this game.
New Zealand Women will take on England Women in the 2nd game of the three-game ODI series, which will be played at the University Oval in Dunedin.
England won the first ODI, and they would want to seal the series, whereas the Kiwis would want to level it. The all-rounders of England give them much more balance, whereas the Whiteferns are missing some of their key players in this series. This should be an easy game for the visitors.
Pitch Report – The pitch is a very good batting surface, whereas there is a little help for the pacers too.
