NZW Vs SAW Dream 11 Prediction: Team New Zealand Women vs South Africa Women. A second straight win sees South Africa wrap up the ongoing series.
For South Africa, a win in the series opener was much needed owing to a slew of reasons. Not only did it see them take a pivotal 1-0 lead in unfamiliar conditions but helped turnaround a harrowing 2019whih was curtailed with the side being trounced by India.
They first curtailed the hosts to just 259 on a resplendent batting surface before eventually coming out to chase the target at hand with consummate ease. The 7 wicket win was an emphatic one, a testament to their intriguing brand of cricket, one they’ll be striving to emanate come today’s tie as well.
Elsewhere for the home side, this outing takes paramount importance. Another defeat would see their chances of winning the series being diminished, something the side will be looking to avoid as they look to instil in place a clinical display to revel their ardent supporters in a jubilant showing.
South Africa showed why they are considered as one of the stalwarts of the cricketing fraternity with a clinical display the last time around. And we envision them emulating the same performance come today’s forthcoming contest as well with the repertoire they carry in their batting unit seeing the side come out trumps on the day.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
Although there will be heavy clouds today, the situation won’t massively deter the pristine batting conditions on offer. This is a delightful track for the batters, one where the ball lies onto the bat extremely well with the track retaining its identity across the full 100 overs, something which will emote the side winning the toss choosing to chase today.

Lizelle Lee was extremely unfortunate to not rake up a 100 for herself the last time around but the 99 run knock for the opener was more than enough to see her earn a spot in our side for this one. She came up with an electric match winning performance, one which saw her cut short and open up New Zealand’s bowling unit to make her an instant pick.
She will be accompanied by Laura Wolvaardt who scored 91 runs in the same encounter with the two openers stitching together a gargantuan knock of 163 for the opening wicket. Elsewhere from New Zealand we are opting for a partnership, one comprised of Katie Perkins who top scored for her side the last time around with 78 runs.
With 53 runs and a good amount of overs with the ball as well, Suzie Bates will be our second pick from the side meanwhile.
South Africa’s captain Dan van Niekerk came up with a 33 run knock in her 100th outing for the side, one which makes the all-rounder a must have pick for the day’s encounter. Sune Luus comes owing to the number three batting slot she occupies in her team’s batting unit, one which allows her with the opportunity to come out and amass a bagful of runs.
From the White Ferns meanwhile, Sophie Devine comes in given the nous of capabilities she bears in both the ambits of the game.
Her side’s top scorer with the four wickets to her name the last time around, Ayabonga Khaka ended up wiping the floor with the bats from New Zealand’s batting unit. And a major reason she was allowed to express herself freely was owing to the three wickets Masabata Klass snared at the other end to make her our second pick from the unit.
The two wickets for new ball bowler Shabnim Ismail complete the trio of selections from the contingent while from the home side we are getting in Rosemary Mair to complete our team for this one.
