SA-W vs NZ-W Match Prediction & Betting Tips, Womens T20 World Cup 2023
South Africa Women and New Zealand Women go head to head on Monday evening in Match 7 of the 2023 Women’s T20 World Cup. South Africa Women were surprisingly beaten by Sri Lanka Women in the tournament opener on Friday evening. New Zealand Women were thrashed by Australia Women on Saturday evening. Read on as we preview this Group A clash. This fixture gets underway at Boland Park, Paarl at 19:00 local time.
South Africa Women showed that they are a good team by beating India Women on the way to winning the Tri-Nation Series earlier this month. However, they will need to show plenty of character to bounce back from their defeat to Sri Lanka Women.
New Zealand Women will be looking forward to this game and putting the heavy defeat to Australia Women out of their minds immediately. They have an excellent record against New Zealand Women and will be favourites to win.

Both teams won the toss and chose to field first before being beaten in their opening matches but we expect both skippers to decide to field first again if they win the toss ahead of this clash.
SA-W vs NZ-W, Boland Park Pitch Report
There is some turn in this wicket but also some pace, particularly in the evening games. Any score over 180 will be very hard to chase down in the second innings.
Paarl Weather Report
Clear skies with the humidity levels increasing to over 70% by the end of the game. The temperature will fall from the mid-20s to the low-20s across the match.

SA Women Team News & Playing 11
SA-W Team News
There is a different kind of pressure on the hosts of a tournament than on the favourites and South Africa Women will be keen to play this match as the underdogs. They were by no means poor against Sri Lanka Women and improvements from all players will be enough to make them far more competitive.
SA-W Key Players
- Laura Wolvaardt- the 23 year old opener struggled to get going against Sri Lanka Women but still hit 18 runs. She very rarely does not make a contribution in successive games.
- Sune Luus- the captain top scored with 28 runs from 27 balls against Sri Lanka Women. Her attitude was clear hitting the only six of the match and we expect her to again be aggressive with the bat in this match.
- Shabnim Ismail- the pace bowler bowled the only maiden over of Match 1 and also took a wicket. She is a consistent performer at this level for South Africa Women.
SA-W Team Form
South Africa Women had impressed by winning the Tri-Nation Series ahead of their opening game and will be hoping that the defeat to Sri Lanka Women was a one-off.

NZ-W Team News
Although it was an embarrassing margin of defeat for New Zealand Women against Australia Women, they will know that it is very rare for both their opening batters to get golden ducks. We do not expect to see any changes to their XI for this match.
NZ-W Key Players
- Suzie Bates- the opener could not have got off to a worst start in the tournament but she has been in excellent form for Otago back home and will back herself to perform in this clash.
- Amelia Kerr- the all-rounder was one of only a couple of New Zealand Women players to emerge with any credit from the defeat on Saturday but showed that she is a talent with both bat and ball.
- Lea Tahuhu- the right-arm medium fast bowler dismissed both Australia Women openers and also got the wicket of the in-form Ashleigh Gardner on this pitch.
NZ-W Team Form
New Zealand Women’s strong run of successive wins in this format was brought to an end with the defeat on Saturday.

Who will win South Africa vs New Zealand Women T20 Match?
Player for player, there is very little difference between the teams and it may come down to which side is able to handle the pressure of the prospect of another defeat. We think New Zealand Women’s players have the greater experience which could be crucial in this game.
🏆 SA Women vs NZ Women Prediction
After very disappointing results for both South Africa Women and New Zealand Women on Friday and Saturday, we expect both teams to approach this game with a positive attitude and look to be attacking from the start. New Zealand Women saw their two top players, both openers, dismissed for golden ducks, and that went a long way to contributing to their defeat. We are predicting a close and competitive game but are backing New Zealand Women to win.
