With the conclusion of the Women’s World Cup group, we are set to enter its knockout stage South Africa take on England on 31st March. The game will be played at the Hagley Oval in Christchurch. Both teams have taken different routes to the semi-finals as the Proteas were the second-best team in the group stage as they only lost to Australia. Whereas the Brits had a very poor start but made an incredible comeback winning in their last fours matches on the bounce.
South Africa Women:
South Africa, after confirming their semi-final birth, edged out India in the last league match. They have won five games with one defeat and no result in their remaining game. Ayabonga Khaka, Shabnim Ismail, and Marizanne Kapp have been the trident that destroyed the opposition batting easily. All three bowlers combined have scalped 29 wickets and are a must in every fantasy team. Looking at their batting, Laura Wolvaardt has been the top performer as she is the highest-run scorer in the tournament with 433 runs and an average of 61.86.
The 2022 World Cup has been a story of redemption for the English team. They have had very close defeats in all three games. After their first game, the England bowling has looked decent after restricting West Indies to under 230. But as the tournament has progressed, the Three Lions have looked like a solid unit with all players hitting form. Natalie Sciver and Tamsin Beaumont have been the backbone of their batting as both of them have combined to score 516 runs. Other fantasy picks from the team are Sophie Ecclestone, Anya Shrubsole and Daniel Wyatt.
