The ICC Women’s World Cup 2022 is proving to be one of the most exciting tournaments that we have witnessed in recent times. Australia and South Africa seem to have broken away from the rest of the pack and will likely cement a place in the semi-finals. That leaves four teams fighting for two spots and almost nothing separates them right now.
New Zealand Women and England Women are two of those teams fighting for spots in the semis.
The best cricket betting sites cannot seem to pick a favorite to win between the two and are offering nearly identical odds. Let us have a look at them in detail and see which team is the one the back in this contest.

NZW VS ENG TEAM PREVIEWS
NEW ZEALAND WOMEN
New Zealand Women are going to be playing this next match on the back of two disappointing defeats. Their campaign is not going the way they expected and it is time for the team to bring out its best. It is not as if the leading players in the team are not performing. Sophie Devine and Amelia Kerr have led from the front but they have often not been able to finish off the matches after getting set and that is what they would like to improve.
We have been quite successful in betting on them to be the Top Batter for New Zealand in previous matches and will continue to do the same. Pick one or bet on both to hedge your bets a little.
Suzie Bates, Amy Satterthwaite, and Maddy Green will also need to lift their games to provide New Zealand the depth it needs in its batting.
New Zealand’s bowling attack has been disappointing this tournament. Jess Kerr and Lea Tahuhu have been good in patches and Amelia Kerr seems to have a knack for picking up wickets but overall, the bowling unit has given away a lot of runs.
This could be a weak spot for England to exploit.
England won a massive match against India in its previous outing as the bowlers led the way and ensured India did not get to any sort of defendable total. Charlotte Dean picked up four wickets, Anya Shrubsole picked up two, and almost all the other bowlers were very economical.
The problem for England has been its inconsistent batting. Even in the previous match with just 134 to chase, England ended up losing 6 wickets in the process. Nat Sciver, Tammy Beaumont, Heather Knight, and Sophia Dunkley have all got over 100 runs each in the World Cup, though, so there is a decent amount of depth in the lineup.
After losing three matches on the trot, England has finally registered an important victory and will be a tough team to come up against.
