A disappointing campaign comes to an end for both the New Zealand Women and the Pakistan Women as they play their final ICC Women’s World Cup 2022 match against each other. The two teams have been poor by their standards and have not achieved what they would have set out to do.
Pakistan has just one win to its name so far and New Zealand two. Neither of the two teams has a chance of qualifying for the semi-final at this stage (although New Zealand can end up with three wins, the same as the possible fourth qualifying team) and so this match is a dead rubber.

Pakistan Women finally won a match against the West Indies and broke their winless run in World Cups. We think the Pakistan Women’s cricket team has undergone a massive improvement in recent years. That change is not being reflected right now because the team has not played very well in this edition of the World Cup.
The top-order of the batting is brittle and the real strength lies in the middle order. Nida Dar, Aliya Riaz, and Omaima Sohail are the ones that have been the most impressive with the bat. It is clear that they have not been as consistent either as Pakistan would have liked but as a bettor, you must consider their potential to understand the risk or opportunity the team offers.
A lot like other teams, Pakistan’s bowling has been the weaker section of its team. Diana Baig is maybe the only bowler that can put in a performance that could shake up the New Zealand top order. The rest of the Pakistani bowlers are not suited to the flat batting conditions that New Zealand serves up and end up being fodder for competent batters.
NEW ZEALAND WOMEN
New Zealand Women go into this match as strong favorites to win. On paper, they have a much stronger batting lineup than Pakistan but their poor form would leave them wary of being overconfident. Sophie Devine and Amelia Kerr are going to be leading the batting lineup for New Zealand.
A lack of runs from Suzie Bates and Amy Satterthwaite has been disappointing for New Zealand. Maddy Green is another player that can add some runs down the order in crucial situations.
Even though New Zealand’s batting has underperformed, you have to back it to come good against Pakistan. The conditions at the Hagley Oval should also suit them the best.
New Zealand’s bowling has not been too special. Lea Tahuhu, Jess Kerr, and Amelia Kerr are the three bowlers that we think will have the most impact in this match.
Considering the fast nature of the surface, betting one of Jess Kerr or Lea Tahuhu to be the top bowler for New Zealand in this match would not be a bad idea.
