NZ-W Vs SA-W Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11, Toss, Pitch And Match Report: New Zealand overhaul a dejecting ODI series to come roaring back in the T20s.
After being routed by South Africa in the bygone ODI series, the series opening win in the T20 series was just what the home side needed. What will massively buoy New Zealad ahead of today’s second T20 tie is not just the 1-0 lead in their kitty but rather the manner in which their win came about in.
After losing the ODI series 3-0, New Zealand were never going to find t easy to pick themselves up and start all over again. However, the hosts showed that they are a worldclass unit, one undeterred by the foregone events in the 50 over format with the side coming out imbued with vigour, fight and character, traits which made for an intoxicating brew.
In what was a clinical performance by the side, they outshone the Africans in all departments of the game. Curbing their opponents at a mere 116, New Zealand ended up cantering their way to colossal 9 wicket win, one which saw them unlock the true potential of their side and ensure that this series would be contested extremely competitively and in feisty manner.
NZ-W Vs SA-W Probable Winner
New Zealand were quick to remind everyone of what they are truly capable of as a cricketing side and with the side making for such a staunch opposition in the shortest format of the game, we envision them taking a 2-0 lead today. South Africa will hit back hard today to see this be closely contested but New Zealand’s slightly more well rounded bowling unit should ensure a win for them.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
An absolutely sensational wicket for the bats, this is a surface to come out and chase on. The sun will make the surface nice and hard in the afternoon period and with the surface set to remain intact for the full 40 overs, a cohesive idea of how to peddle your chase is a massive advantage.

NZ-W Vs SA-W Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
Lizelle Lee might have departed early on in the previous encounter as she fell for 17 runs but her brief stay out in the middle showed why she’s such a feared name. The South African opener and wicket-keeper opened her arms with ease to cream the ball to the fence to see us retain her in our setup.
Elsewhere, we are getting in the one name from the home side as well with Rachel Priest coming in for us. She needed 28 balls to hit her way to 37 runs, a knock which showed why the shortest format of the game is one where her penchant for quick runs in fulfilled so easily.
NZ-W Vs SA-W Dream11 Batswomen
In a batting display where her entire batting unit offered extremely little, South Africa’s Laura Wolvaardt showed fortitude and grit to come up with the top score for her side. Her 33 runs make her an instant pick alongside Mignon du Preez who was unlucky to see her promising knock of 20 be curtailed midway owing to a runout.
Elsewhere, after staying unbeaten on 18 to ensure her side were able to cruise their way past the finishing line with ease, Suzie Bates is snagged by us from New Zealand.
NZ-W Vs SA-W Dream11 All-Rounders
Sophie Devine might have gotten just the one over with the ball the last time around but the all-rounder came out with a match winning knock with the bat. The opener remained unbeaten on 54, playing an electric and gripping innings, one telling of the repertoire of attributes instilled in her kitty.
She’s joined up by Amelia Kerr who wrecked havoc in South Africa’s ranks with the 2-17 in four overs while from the visiting unit, we are getting in Nadine de Klerk who scored 23 runs for her side in the tie.
NZ-W Vs SA-W Dream11 Bowling Order
She’s partnered up by Leigh Kasperek who sent down a spell of 2-17 as well with the two manifesting their penchant for wickets to move in tandem and leave the visitors perplexed. Elsewhere, her side’s only wicket taker in the previous encounter, Tumi Sekhukhune becomes our first selection from South Africa alongside Ayabonga Khaka.
