NZ-W Vs SA-W Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11, Toss, Pitch And Match Report: Disparaged New Zealand look to instil solace into their ranks after a harsh ODI series.
Down and dusted prior to this series and playing in conditions unfamiliar to them, everything before South Africa came to New Zealand emoted towards how tricky this series was going to be for them. However, the side silenced their naysayers in some fashion, completely dominating and dismantling the hosts to script their way to a 3-0 sweep in the foregone ODI series.
They defeated New Zealand by 6 wickets in the culminating ODI tie, a comprehensive and clinical win which saw them outshine their opponents in all departments of the game. They curtailed their opposition to a mere 147 before cruising their way to a successful win with 12 wickets to spare, a display which exemplified their stronghold over the home side.
Now when the two sides step out to the middle today for the first of the five match T20 series, South Africa will be looking to emulate the same rousing display. Elsewhere, the White Ferns will be looking to overhaul an underachieving showing in the 50 over format with this series being of pivotal importance given the imminent T20 world cup is looming this month.
South Africa not only swept the ODI series but they ended up flaying and routing the hosts. Overpowering their opponents so emphatically sees the visitors make an advent into the series opened as outright favourites, a moniker we see them living upto come today’s outing.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
One of the most pristine surface in the country for the batters, the team winning the toss will be looking to come out and bat first. The team chasing has always lost over here with the colossal targets being extremely difficult to peel down.

The 30 runs and 1 wicket to go with it see us make South Africa’ captain, Dan van Niekerk an instant selection for the contest. She’s partnered along with Marizanne Kapp after her spell of a mere 1-5 in the four overs she sent down in the same encounter.
