Women's Cricket World Cup - New Zealand

s


Be it men’s or women’s team, Australia and New Zealand have a strong rivalry going. Something that crosses over the gender line.
The New Zealand Women’s Cricket Team is currently ranked third with 59 matches, 7029
points and a rating of 119. This team was the champions in 2000. They are very much in the run for the cup this year.
This is because they have a balanced squad and have four players who played domestic cricket this summer in England are used to its unpredictable weather.
Let’s take a look at the team and see what we got
The squad:
Suzie Bates (c), Erin Bermingham, Sophie Devine, Maddy Green, Holly Huddleston, Leigh Kasperek, Amelia Kerr, Katey Martin, Tamsyn Newton, Katie Perkins, Anna Peterson, Rachel Priest, Hannah Rowe, Amy Satterthwaite, Lea Tahuhu.

Fixtures:
June 24 v Sri Lanka,
June 28 v South Africa,
July 2 v Australia,
July 6 v West Indies,
July 8 v Pakistan,
July 12 v England,
July 15 v India

Players to look out for:
29-year-old Captain, Suzie Bates (right-hand bat and right-arm medium) has been playing for over a decade now.  Her last match was against Australia in March earlier this year. She is very much in touch with the game and in-form. She is a batting allrounder who plays in the top order. Named ICC Women's ODI Cricketer of the Year along with player of the 2013 world cup Tournament, the captain is the safest bet if you are thinking of your Fantain Fantasy lineup.
30-year-old  Amy Satterthwaite (left-hand bat and right-arm off break) - Watch out for her. Known as the branch because of her height, she can contribute both with the bat and the ball. She has topped the batting averages in 2016 women’s World T20. Fear her.
27-year-old Sophie Devine is an integral part of her team. Starting off as a bowler, today she has steadily improved her batting big time. She scored three fifties in March this year at the T20Is. She’s in form and form is very important in the game.
16-year-old Leg Spinner Amelia Kerr became a sensation in a matter of two years. She is a treat to watch, irrespective of the format. When she was 14 and on the team, her then skipper of Wellington Blaze - Sophie Devine - predicted that she could be a world-beater.
She looks like she is on the right path.
New Zealand look like one of the top contenders for the Cup this season. They have all the right weapons clicking the right time. It is time to go for the kill.

Editor’s Pick (Nidahas T20): India - Sri Lanka

The table is currently in a very surprising situation. Most expected Sri Lanka to show Bangladesh the door. But here they are still standing up and shining. The tournament is wide open. Today’s match is between India and Sri Lanka. The stakes are much higher now that Bangladesh is more feared than before. The teams would not want to risk anything at this point. Earlier I had said that they might experiment with the lineup and give everyone a chance. Now it will be more than giving people a chance. They will strategize. The Indian team will be open to experimentation, but not at the cost of results.

The untested ones are Deepak Hooda, KL Rahul, and Axar Patel. India has lost to Sri Lanka in their first encounter of this tournament. They will want to be wary because another defeat could cost them the tournament itself. So, not all the new players will see the light today.
A lot depends on Rohit Sharma today. Shikhar Dhawan, Suresh Raina, Manish Pandey and Dinesh Karthik will chip in too.…
