England W

England W will throw away a gripping challenge to arch-rivals New Zealand in the 12th group-stage schedule of the Commonwealth Games 2022. The Brits’ have remained unbeaten in their group stage trek and have already sealed a spot in the semi-finals. In their last game, England drubbed South Africa with a 26 runs win where Alice Capsey starred with bat while scoring 50 runs and Katherine Brunt played an electrifying cameo of 38 runs off just 23 balls.

England will be aiming to finish strong and win their last group stage fixture with a confident win. Natalie Sciver-led side is exhibiting a strong all-round show in the tournament thus far. Daniel Wyatt and Sophia Dunkley are twisting arms of bowlers in powerplay overs while Katherine Brunt is proving blasting finishers for the Brits. On the bowling front, Sophie Ecclestone is England’s trusted arsenal.  

New Zealand W

New Zealand is the current table-topper of Group B with two superlative wins in their past two fixtures. Blackcaps have recently clinched an easy win against Sri Lanka and shoot to the top with better net run-rate. Sophie Devine-led side has already entered the knock-out stage and will aim to win the last group stage fixture to prolong their unbeaten track-record.

The Blackcaps will be looking forward to amending their depilated head-to-head records against England in Thursday’s battle-out. The Sophie Devine-led side looks solid in all fronts as skipper Sophie alongside Suzie Bates is proving an incredible opening pair while Brooke Halliday is keeping things under control in the middle order. On the bowling front, Hayley Jansen is New Zealand’s match-winner.  

Topbets Prediction

An enthralling contest is on the cards where two equally-able sides will take on each other. England Women carries a bunch of X Factor players and all of their players have stepped-up in crunch situations. New Zealand Women are seated at the top and remained unbeaten thus far. The team which will keep calm in testing moments will be a winner here. Home advantage offers a slight edge to England.
