EN-W vs NZ-W 5th ODI Match Preview:
On Sunday, England Women will lock horns with New Zealand Women in the 5th ODI Match at St Lawrence Ground, Canterbury.
A stunning century from skipper Heather Knight helped England Women beat New Zealand in the fourth ODI in Derby to seal the ODI series. Knight, who made 101 off 107 balls, led her side to their highest successful run chase in ODI history as they overhauled New Zealand’s 244/8.on Thursday (September 23).
New Zealand, who had kept the series alive by clinching the third ODI, would have believed that the series would go down to the wire by the end of the first innings following a strong performance. Even though Anya Shrubsole ensured the top three was back in the pavilion by the end of the tenth over, New Zealand fought back hard. Amy Satterthwaite and Sophie Devine added 56 for the fourth wicket before the free-scoring skipper’s knock came to an end.
England’s joy was short-lived though as Katey Martin then joined Satterthwaite in the crease to resurrect the innings. The two batters added 84 for the fifth wicket and eventually ended up registering half-centuries. Even though England kept striking regularly at the death, Brooke Halliday’s cameo ensured New Zealand still had a strong finish to their innings.
Unlike the visitors, England made a strong start to the chase with the openers laying an ideal platform. Lauren Winfield-Hill struck five boundaries whereas Tammy Beaumont was watchful at the other end. However, New Zealand went through a four-over period where they rattled the hosts big time with a triple strike. Hannah Rowe, who replaced Lea Tahuhu for this contest, was the architect behind their comeback as she took out the openers and Natalie Sciver in successive overs to leave them reeling at 71/3.
Knight, who had already watched two batters depart from the non-striker’s end, stitched a vital partnership alongside Amy Ellen Jones to get the chase back on track. While Jones was content playing second fiddle, Knight kept the scoreboard ticking. The duo added 100 for the fourth wicket before New Zealand struck twice again in quick succession. Danielle Wyatt’s crucial run-a-ball 27 then put England in a commanding position as Knight also brought up her second ODI ton. Both Wyatt and the skipper departed in the penultimate over to cause jitters in the home camp but they got the job done eventually with three balls to spare.
