After succumbing to back-to-back defeats in the 3-match ODI series, New Zealand Women will take on hosts EN-W in a bid to salvage lost pride on July 13.
It has been a disappointing series for the White Ferns’ thus far. After losing the first ODI by 142 runs, they proceeded to lose the second one as well with a similar script being played out on both occasions- batting collapses. After losing 10-77 in the first ODI from a position of strength (0-70 while chasing 291) the White Ferns middle-order suffered a similar fate in the second ODI thanks to an inspired bowling performance from the World Champions. Sophie Ecclestone (3-14) and Katie George (3-36) were the picks of the bowlers for EN-W.
