The Big Picture
It will be a battle two batting powerhouses at Taunton when English Women and New Zealand Women take on each other in the 4th T20 of the tri-nation series on Saturday. Both the teams are coming off a record-breaking heist in their opening fixtures against South Africa Women.
While the Kiwis carried their form from the Ireland ODI series and smashed the highest total (3-214 in 20 overs) in Women’s T20 cricket thanks to a swashbuckling ton from skipper Suzie Bates (124 off 66 balls) and an enthralling 73 by Sophie Devine. Chasing 215, SA-W were never really in the chase and apart from skipper Niekerk’s 44-ball-58 and du Preez’s 36, none of the batters could apply themselves as they stumbled to a 66-run loss.
