Match Details of NZ-W v SA-W Dream11 and MyTeam11 Fantasy Contest:
New Zealand Women vs South Africa Women
4th T20I, South Africa tour of New Zealand
Basin Reserve, Wellington

NZ-W v SA-W Dream11 and MyTeam11 Fantasy Preview and Prediction:
After suffering two bad losses on the bounce, South Africa came back very well in the 3rd T20I to win the match by five wickets.
After choosing to bat first, Sophie Devine’s 77-run knock helped New Zealand post a total of 153/5. While both Sune Luus and Ayabonga Khaka got two wickets, the latter was the pick of the bowlers as she gave away only 14 runs in three overs.
Although South Africa bowled admirably to restrict New Zealand in the last six overs, a target of 154 was always going to be challenging for a side that had only managed to post 116 and 119 in the first T20Is. However, South Africa came up with a measured chase with everyone contributing with useful knocks. Skipper Dane van Neikerk held the chase together with her 42 off 40 balls while Chloe Tryon gave the necessary impetus to South Africa’s inning with a typically aggressive 16-ball 34 to help the team cross the line with one ball to spare.
That win would have given a lot of confidence to the visitors and it would be interesting to see whether they can carry on with the momentum to defeat the White Ferns in the fourth T20I too.
The day could start off with cloudy skies but sunshine should be prevalent soon enough on a day when the maximum temperature is expected to be 20-degree celsius. There is absolutely no chance for rain interruption.
The third T20I which saw a relatively pretty high-scoring match at the Basin Reserve gave an inkling to how the pitch is. Even in the Super Smash, there were a lot of high-scoring games with the average first innings score being 173. The same is expected to continue on Monday.

NZ-W v SA-W Dream11 and MyTeam11 Fantasy Picks:
New Zealand Women
Sophie Devine: Superstar Sophie Devine has been unstoppable in this T20I series as she has scored fifties in all the three matches. If that isn’t enough, Devine has also got three wickets in her bag.
Amelia Kerr: Talented leg-spinner Amelia Kerr has been the stand-out bowler among both the sides with four scalps in three matches. Even though, Kerr hasn’t got enough opportunities, she is also a more than handy batter.
South Africa Women
Mignon du Preez: One of South Africa’s most experienced batters, Mignon du Preez has been in solid touch in this series so far. Although she has not registered a fifty until now, her 83 runs have exuded a lot of confidence.
Ayabonga Khaka: Ayabonga Khaka, South Africa’s disciplined medium-pacer has been on top of her game in this series. Apart from being frugal with her economy rate, Khaka has also been the joint-highest wicket-taker with four dismissals.
