When South Africa Women embarked on their tour of New Zealand, not many of them would have expected a 3-0 whitewash in the ODI series. However, cricket is a great leveller and they ended up losing the first 2 T20Is against New Zealand Women, while winning the third. The 5-match T20 series now stands at 2-1 in favour of the hosts.
That last victory would’ve helped the visitors, and they’ll have hope now considering they’re still alive in the series. We play at the Basin Reserve in Wellington where the 3rd T20I was also played, so we know that 160+ will be needed if the team batting first needs to win.

New Zealand Women
Someone in the form of her life right now is captain Sophie Devine who has smashed 3 consecutive fifties, carrying her form into this series after doing well with bat and ball in the WBBL and Super Smash as well. Considering she bowls and has 3 wickets as well, she becomes my automatic captain choice, even though everyone else might do the same. Another fantastic all-rounder pick could be youngster Amelia Kerr.
Amelia has 4 wickets in 3 games and only 4 runs because she’s just had the one chance to bat so far. Though she has a best of 12* in T20Is, she’s one of the most destructive batters when given the chance. Legendary player Suzie Bates is also in the squad and won’t be a very popular pick considering she’s only managed 48 runs in 3 games, but she is one heck of a player, with an ODI double century to her name too.
South Africa Women
Talking about all-rounders, 24-year old Sune Luus should also make your MyFab11 (sign-up with code “READAD46“) fantasy team since she has 3 wickets in 3 games this series and also has 2 fifties in her last 10 games. With 4 wickets in 3 games so far this series and 14 wickets in her last 8 international games, Ayabonga Khaka will lead the attack and she shouldn’t be missed in your NZ-W vs SA-W fantasy team.
With 200+ international matches under her belt and also have 3 centuries, Mignon du Preez is one of the best choices with the bat and she has six consecutive 20+ scores currently, so the form is brilliant as well. With scores of 30, 25, 42 in the series so far as well as a couple of wickets, Dane van Niekerk is also a good option, but she will be expensive so it may be tough selecting them all in your fantasy side.
