NZ-W vs EN-W Dream11 Prediction: A loss in the last practice game has definitely raised eyebrows in the English lass team management. It was a demeaning effort from the visitors as they lost their last practice game by 30 runs against New Zealand Women XI. The visitors now have to regroup themselves and start afresh for the 3-match ODI series scheduled to get underway from 23rd February. The English women have got a 7-day break to regroup themselves from the setback and would want to start their campaign on a winning note.
Meanwhile, the hosts lead by the prolific all-rounder Sophie Devine would be without their experienced mainstay Suzie Bates who will be missing the entire series due to shoulder injury. The Whiteferns last squared off against Australian women Downunder before the COVID-19 break. They were completely outdone by the hosts losing the three-match series 0-3. With both teams coming off a loss in their respective previous encounters, a crunching game is definitely on the cards.

Both teams are well balanced and an exciting contest is definitely upon us. Talking about the favorites, we are slightly in favor of the English Women to register a win in this NZ-W vs EN-W Today Match Prediction.
Tammy Beaumont: The right-hand English opener looked decent in the two warm-up games. She has been one of the mainstays with the bat for her side with 2387 runs from 63 innings in ODIs.
Heather Knight: The English skipper will be a vital prospect with both bat and ball. From 96 ODI innings, she has amassed 2800 runs and has scalped 48 wickets too.
Sophie Devine: The Whiteferns skipper and star player has played a vital role with both bat and ball in recent times. She has 2660 runs under her belt from 95 ODI innings and has scalped 73 wickets.
Natalie Sciver: The highly-rated English all-rounder has 1885 runs to her name from 58 ODI innings and has managed 44 wickets too. Could be an essential pick in both GL and SL teams.
Natalie Dodd: After impressing one and all with a brilliant 91 in the last practice game, the Whiteferns keeper would be high on confidence. She has 211 runs from 14 innings in ODIs.
Amelia Kerr: The 20-year old Whiteferns all-rounder has 515 runs against her name from 24 innings and has managed 54 wickets as well.
