When and where:
England Women and New Zealand Women are the two finalists of the Women’s T20I tri-series in England, 2018 after South Africa women failed to leave an impact in the series. Both the teams will lock horns tomorrow (July 01) at County Ground, Chelmsford for the final starting at 07:30 PM IST.
Ahead of the Sunday’s final, England handed 7-wickets loss to rivals New Zealand women in the sixth match of the tri-series. It was more of a practice game before the big game for both teams. After winning the toss, New Zealand women opted to bat and managed 129-10 in 18.1 over with the help of Sophie Devine’ fifty. Anya Shrubsole bagged 3 wickets while D Hazell took 2 wickets for the hosts.
In response, England women chased down the target with 7 wickets remaining and almost 4 over to spare with the help of Sarah Taylor’s 51, Natalie Sciver’s 39* and H Knight’s 24*. It will be interesting to watch two of the best teams lock horns tomorrow in the final.
