ENG-W vs NZ-W T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, CWG 2022
Match 12 of the Women’s Cricket competition as part of the 2022 Commonwealth Games sees England Women and New Zealand Women go head to head at Edgbaston on Thursday evening. After two wins each for both sides, they are already guaranteed a place in the semi-final. The victors will top the group. Read on as we preview this day-night WT20I. This Group B match begins at 18:00 local time at Edgbaston, Birmingham.
England Women have shown that they are a very accomplished WT20 side by chasing down a target in their first game and defending a total in their second. They will expect a close match but will be backing themselves.
New Zealand Women’s strongest suit is batting and they have a very strong top order. This will be their toughest game of the tournament but they certainly have the players to cause England Women plenty of problems.

ENG-W vs NZ-W Match Toss Prediction
New Zealand Women chose to bat first against Sri Lanka Women and we expect them to want to do the same in this match. The conditions will not vary a huge amount from the start to the finish although there may be more swing through the air under the floodlights.
ENG-W vs NZ-W Pitch Report
We have seen the swing and seam bowlers impress in the opening overs of most games but overall it is a pitch which favours the spinners. The surface appears to be slowing down as the tournament progresses.
Sunny to begin with before clear skies and floodlights will take over. The temperature will drop no lower than 17 degrees at Edgbaston.

ENG-W Team News
Nat Sciver will captain England Women in this match with rumours persisting that Heather Knight may miss the entire tournament with her hip problem. Although there will be a temptation to rest certain players, England Women will want to top the group and we anticipate no changes to the XI.
ENG-W Key Players
- Alice Capsey- the young batting all-rounder will turn 18 on the day of this fixture. She is the second highest run scorer in the tournament and hit 50 runs from 37 balls against South Africa Women.
- Danni Wyatt- the opener batted at an impressive strike-rate of 135 in the last match. She will always try and be aggressive at the top of the order and will put the team first.
- Sophie Ecclestone- the spinner recorded the best figures in the team against South Africa Women. She brings experience, control and wickets to the England Women side at Edgbaston.
ENG-W Team Form
England Women have won five successive games in this format and appear to be on a roll. They have winning momentum and the home crowd’s backing in Birmingham.

NZ Women Team News & Playing 11
NZ-W Team News
18 year old left-arm spinner Fran Jonas was left out of the team ahead of the game against Sri Lanka Women with medium pacer, Rosemary Mair, taking her place. Mair impressed with figures of 1-13 and she should keep her spot. There are no injury niggles and we expect New Zealand to select their strongest XI for this match.
NZ-W Key Players
- Sophie Devine- the skipper made 24 runs from 23 balls against Sri Lanka Women and bowled only one over. Expect her to play a much larger role with bat and ball in this match against stronger opposition.
- Suzie Bates- the 34 year old right-handed opener is the leading run scorer in the tournament at this stage. She hit four fours and shared in a fifty run opening partnership on Tuesday.
- Hayley Jensen- the medium pacer has managed to exploit the overhead conditions at Edgbaston. She will have the opportunity to add to her four wickets in the competition under the lights again in this match.
NZ-W Team Form
New Zealand Women have won three successive matches in this format and have had comfortable victories in both of their games in this tournament.
NZ Women Predicted Playing 11
