NZ-W Vs SA-W Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11, Toss, Pitch And Match Report: Series win within New Zealand’s sights as the home side look to step out and assert their claim for the trophy
A complete turnaround has seen New Zealand completely dismiss the narrative which was built up prior to the ongoing T20 series. From being considered as mere pushovers given the way they were sent packing in the ODI series to now touted as the side which will walk away with the T20 series’ trophy, the way the hosts have overhauled their dwindling form has been commendable.
Holding a 2-0 lead in the five match series, the White Ferns make an advent into the forthcoming encounter as outright favourites to pull off a third successive win. It’s courtesy of the manner in which they have clinically outshined South Africa, comprehensive outshining them in all departments of the game.
The rhetoric was paid testament to the last time around with the side packing their opponents for a mere 119 before coming out and marauding their way to a profound 5 wicket win. They’ll be looking to imbed in place the same rousing performance and with it bring an end to the clamour both these sides are embroiled in for the glistening trophy.
The White Ferns have taken to the shortest format of the game extremely well, not only winning the bygone two contests but trouncing South Africa in the process. And we envision the same record being played today with the home side coming out and decimating the visitors to seal the series.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
One of the most pristine surface in the country for the batters, this is a wicket which will play completely in favour of the strokeplay. Expansive strokeplay will be visible right from the word go with the team winning the toss preferring to come out and pile on a hefty target for their opponents.

NZ-W vs SA-W Dream11 Wicket-Keeper

NZ-W vs SA-W Dream11 Batswomen
South Africa’s Sune Luus was unfortunate to get runout the last time but she came out and got the one wicket with the ball to see her become our first pick for this tie from the visiting unit. She’s paired up with her side’s top scorer from the foregone tie with Mignon du Preez joining her up after scoring 40 in a mere 26 balls.
Opener Laura Wolvaardt comes in as well to wrap up the trio of selections from South Africa after she managed to string together a meaningful 22 runs in the second tie.
NZ-W vs SA-W Dream11 All-Rounders
Sophie Devine has been in succulent touch this series, putting on displays which people envision from her. She’s shown why she’s held in such high stature in the T20 format as the opener lead her side to a comfortable win with 61 in 43 balls to make her a must have choice from the White Ferns.
The 1-18 with the ball see us indulge in the services of Amelia Kerr as well from the unit along with Hayley Jensen while from South Africa we are moving in with Dane van Niekerk who strung together 25 invaluable runs for her side.

Given South Africa’s plight with the bat, it was only going to be befitting of us to venture in with a partnership from the home side. Both Lea Tahuhu and Leigh Kasperek have perturbed the visiting unit with their wicket to wicket line and length, one which saw Tahuhu come up with the 2-10 the last time around to make the duo an instant pick.
Elsewhere, with the two wickets in her kitty in the bygone affair, Ayabonga Khaka will become our lone selection from South Africa meanwhile.
