Batting first, New Zealand drafted a fairly strong total of 167/2 on the board. The South African team started poorly with their opening batters being sent towards the pavilion within the power play, but the middle order put up a good show.

Pitch Report

The pitch at Edgbaston is quite good for the batting side. Despite that, the batters should take their time in this venue before they can dominate the game in the middle overs. The pacers will get an early advantage with the new ball but will have to focus on their line and length as the ball wears down over time.

South Africa Women will have to forget their previous performance and opt for a fresh start in order to bounce back. We back England Women to win this match as they also have the advantage of playing at home.
