Match details of NZ-W v SA-W Dream11 Fantasy Contest:
South Africa Women vs New Zealand Women
Seddon Park, Hamilton
February 6th, 2020
6.30 am IST
NZ-W v SA-W Dream11 Fantasy Preview and Prediction:
Amelia Kerr and Leigh Kasperek did the job with the ball and it was followed up well by Rachel Priest and Sophie Devine, who took New Zealand past the winning mark easily. This was a much-needed win for the Kiwis after the ODI series humiliation and they seem keen on redeeming themselves with a thumping performance in this series. They have a strong middle order, most of whom had a sensational Women’s SuperSmash which ended last month, lining up for a very interesting 5-match series.
The weather conditions have been pretty similar in the last two weeks in Hamilton. Not a lot of rain to trouble cricket and decent temperatures, ranging from 21-29 degrees. The humidity levels will be ranging around 50% with no chances of rain.
Going by the recent T20I game between India and New Zealand, the track up for grabs in Hamilton will produce a belter of a contest between bat and ball. The short boundaries are the only aspect in favor of the batsmen.

New Zealand Women:

NZ-W v SA-W Dream11 Fantasy Picks:
New Zealand Women
Sophie Devine: The kind of form she is in, it will be difficult stop her from doing damage. She registered a half-century and is continuing the form she exhibited in recent months at the Big Bash League and SuperSmash T20.
Amelia Kerr: She picked up two wickets in the first game and that is just the beginning of what is to come. She can contribute with the bat as well and is a top choice for captaincy.
South Africa Women
Lizelle Lee: South Africa need an explosive start during their batting and only Lizelle Lee can provide them that spark at the top. She got a good start, but failed to capitalize on it in the last game. She will relish how nicely the ball will come on to the bat in Hamilton.
Chloe Tryon: Skipper Chloe needs a bit more composure to get going. These are still early days for her as captain and she will have a good run in the future with the talents she has to work with. Another one of those players well capable of giving points with the bat and ball, Tryon could be a crucial pick in your fantasy team.
