Australia Women will be facing off against the defending champions England in the final of the ICC Women’s World Cup 2022 at the Hagley Oval in Christchurch on April 3. Both teams are coming into the summit clash having registered huge wins in their respective semifinal matches. The Aussies have been undefeated so far in this tournament and are just one game away from rewriting history. They got the better of a resurgent West Indies by a mammoth 157 runs in the first semifinal.

England, on the other hand, have been peaking at the right time. After their first three losses, the title-holders took the wake-up call seriously and there was no looking back for them from thereon as they made the knockouts with some much-deserved wins in the remainder of their group stage games. England knocked out an in-form South Africa by an emphatic 137-run win in the second semifinal.

Pitch Report

The Christchurch wicket is a seamer-friendly surface early on and the bowlers would be looking to make early inroads with the new ball in hand. However, if the batters survive the initial phase and get set, then they can score with ease. Usually, teams prefer bowling first at this venue, but since this is a World Cup final, scoreboard pressure could very well play on the minds of both sides. Therefore, the captain winning the toss will bat first.

Probable Top Performers

Probable best batter of the match: Rachael Haynes

Rachael Haynes has had an outstanding tournament so far. She is the second-highest run-getter with 429 runs to her name and just needs five more runs to surpass South African sensation Laura Wolvaardt. The English team needs to get her wicket at the earliest as she can play a game-changing knock once set.

Probable best performer of the match: Sophie Ecclestone

Sophie Ecclestone has so far picked up 20 wickets in the competition. The left-arm spinner ran through South Africa’s batting line-up in the semis with outstanding figures of 6/36 from her eight overs at an economy rate of 4.50. The 22-year-old is not just one good spell away from ensuring that the coveted trophy remains in England but also from etching her name in the history books.

Today’s match prediction: Australia will win the match.
