The venue, Pitch Report, and Toss Prediction:

The second ODI between New Zealand Women and England Women will be played at the University Oval on Friday.

A thriller of a wicket beckons at the University Oval, with the batters set to relish the situations in Dunedin.

Nevertheless, both sides’ batters will need to keep an eye out for additional swing and seam that the bowlers could exploit early on. As the game develops, spin bowlers could also have a say in the business.

255-275 should be a par score at this ground, with both sides expected to bat first after winning the toss.

Tops Value:

While the English Women may perhaps be the choices, New Zealand will benefit from comfortable home situations. However, an exciting match of ODI cricket beckons at the University Oval in Dunedin.

Owing to the previous game and recent form, the English Women enter this game as favourites at the odds of 1.45, while the home team is at 2.50. The star-studded team makes it an obvious choice for the pick. However, the likes of Sophie Devine and Amy Satterthwaite possess the ability to upset these odds in the blink of an eye.
