The 1st warm-up match between New Zealand Women XI and England Women will be played on 14th February, Sunday, at John Davies Oval, Queenstown.
The match is scheduled to start at 11:00 AM local time and 3:30 AM IST.
New Zealand Women XI will take on the visitors England Women in the 1st warm-up match on Sunday. New Zealand Women lost their previous series by a margin of 3-0, when they toured Australia 4 months back. It will be a good test for some of the young players who failed to make the cut for the national team. Two warm-up matches will surely help them to showcase their talent.
On the other hand, England Women haven’t played ODI cricket since last December, where they won the series 2-0 against Pakistan. They have got a great bunch of players in the likes of Tammy Beaumont, Danni Wyatt, Heather Knight, and Katherine Brunt. That being said, they will need to acclimatize to the conditions, since they are touring New Zealand after a long gap. England has thrashed New Zealand 2-1 when these two teams last played a bilateral ODI series in England in 2018. Overall, the warm-up games will help both teams to adjust to the conditions and also find their best playing combination.
