The 2nd warm-up match between New Zealand Women XI and England Women will be played on February 16th 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 England Women in the second and final warm-up match ahead of the ODI series starting from 23rd February. England Women had a great start on their tour as they beat New Zealand Women XI in the first warm match by 20 runs. They have tried the choice of batting first in the first warm-up match and they might want to try the option of bowling first in the second warm-up match as they are preparing for the ODI series.
On the other hand, New Zealand Women XI gave a tough in the first warm-up match but eventually lost the match by 20 runs. There were plenty of positives for them. Lauren Down played well for her 97 and the remaining batswoman got starts as well. Bowling has to be more proactive in the second game. Players who aren’t part of the ODI series need to utilize this opportunity and make a statement that they belong to this level.
