The Women in blue will be squaring off against New Zealand women for a 3 ODI series which is a part of ICC Women ODI Championship followed by 3 T20. The one-day series is scheduled from 24th January to 1st February and the first ODI will take place at the McLean Park in Napier on January 24. It is the same venue where the Indian men’s team took on their New Zealand counterparts earlier today (January 23).
It is the veteran Mithali Raj who will be leading the Indian team in the ODI series and her opposite number is Amy Satterthwaite. As things stand at the moment, it is the Women in Blue who will start as favourites against the White Ferns.
Pitch and conditions
As far as the pitch is concerned, the Napier track didn’t behave as it is conventionally expected to in the 1st New Zealand vs India ODI. There was seam movement to start with and then the spinners got into the game. The home team really struggled against the Indian spin-twin who claimed six wickets in the middle overs. NZ-Women will be wary of the same threat when they take on the Indian Women at the same venue.
