Wellington, February 06, Wednesday at 08:30 AM IST
After winning the first two match convincingly by huge margins and clinching the ODI series by 2-1, both the sides India Women and New Zealand Women are now focusing on the T20I series. It is one of the biggest defeats in the past for the hosts and White Ferns would be looking to bounce back in the forthcoming T20I series starting from February 06, Wednesday.
India dominated the hosts in the first two ODIs before collapsing in the third and final game, resulting in a 2-1 series win. India’s Smriti Mandhana showed a formidable form scoring 105 in the first game and unbeaten 90 in the second game.
Suzie Bates reckons to restrict Smriti Mandhana in the upcoming clash to fancy their chances. The hosts have released a 13-members squad to take on the visitors. They have recalled Frances Mackay, who last played for New Zealand in 2014, and have also included two uncapped players – Katie Gurrey and Rosemary Mair.
The three T20Is will be played in Wellington, Auckland and Hamilton on 6, 8 and 10 February.
Total – 08
India – 03

Fantasy picks from India Women-
Smriti Mandhana will be the biggest threat for White Ferns. The batter scored a century in the first game and returned unbeaten on 90 in the second game
Mithali Raj, J Rodrigues and Deepti Sharma scored a fifty each in the ODI series
With 6 scalps in the bag, Poonam Yadav was the leading wicket-taker in the ODI series
Ekta Bisht returned with 5 wickets in total.
Fantasy picks from New Zealand Women-
New Zealand suffered a lot in batting. Barring Amy Satterthwaite (168 runs in 3 innings), Suzie Bates, Sophie Devine and Amelia Kerr looked ineffective in front of India’s bowling attack. They will have to put a better show with the bat in the upcoming series.
Lea Tahuhu and Amelia Kerr will be the key in bowling.
