New Zealand vs South Africa (NZ-W vs SA-W) Today Match Prediction Preview:

Welcome to the NZ-W vs SA-W Today Prediction curated by Kheltalk cricket experts. South Africa Women will now face New Zealand Women in Commonwealth Games T20 2022 on 30 July 2022 at Birmingham. Keep on reading for more information on the NZ-W vs SA-W game.

New Zealand will return to international cricket after their heartbreaking loss in the home World Cup in March. The team has revamped its squad and has named several new faces for the Commonwealth Games.

Also, they will enter this new era with a new head coach, Ben Sawyer. The former Sydney Sixers coach has taken up the job recently and this will be his first international assignment as well. The team had recently played three practice matches ahead of the tournament and had lost the first two before winning the final match.

South Africa, on the other hand, will enter as the underdogs as they will miss most of their star players. The inexperienced team was recently clean swept by the hosts England in a multi-format series.

NZ-W vs SA-W Today Match Prediction, Commonwealth Games T20, Who Will Win the Match?

New Zealand to win

Despite not playing international cricket for a while, New Zealand are likely to have a winning start at the Commonwealth Games. The team’s top order consisting of Suzie Bates, Sophie Devine, Melie Kerr, is probably the strongest in the current tournament. If all the three stars get going, it is going to be difficult to stop them for South Africa. Having said that, Shabnim Ismail has tasted success against all three batters and if she comes good today, we are in for a thrilling outcome.
