The 7th match of the Women’s Cricket Competition at the Commonwealth Games 2022 will be played between Group B teams England and South Africa at Edgbaston in Birmingham on August 2. While the hosts won their campaign opener against Sri Lanka, the Proteas lost their first fixture against New Zealand. With some key players missing out from the squad, it is going to be a challenge for South Africa.
England and South Africa recently locked horns for a one-off Test, three ODIs, and as many T20Is. While the Test match ended in a draw thanks to centurions from both the teams, South Africa ended up losing both the ODI and T20I series by 0-3. England are in fine form and backed with a big series win in addition to the victory in their first match.

ENG-W vs SA-W, 7th T20I Probable Top Performers
Probable best batter
One of the finest bowlers that the English side has ever had, Sophie Ecclestone has been a regular in the squad. She has proved to be a match winner, has regularly provided her side with crucial breakthroughs in the game, and is also a tough nut to crack in the white-ball format. Putting the batters under trouble is her forte, and she would continue to do so.
Probable best bowler
England’s stand-in skipper Natalie Sciver has been in fine touch recently. She has been a terrific performer against the Momentum Proteas across all formats, and the upcoming fixture will not be that difficult for her to crack. She has been a key component of the middle-order, and was also among the top scorers in the two teams’ multi-format series.
