The New Zealand women’s cricket team takes on a struggling England women in match 19 of the ICC Women’s World Cup 2022 at Eden Park in Auckland on Sunday, March 20.
Defending champions England claimed their first win of the campaign with a four-wicket victory over India, thus ending a run of three consecutive defeats in the tournament. A loss to New Zealand will push England towards an early elimination from the ICC Women’s World Cup 2022.
In order to remain in contention for a top-four finish, England women need to win all of their remaining three matches. New Zealand, on the other hand, must claim maximum points from their final two league matches and hope India fails to win all of their last three games.

New Zealand women vs England women prediction for ICC Women’s World Cup 2022
New Zealand will start as slight favourites on Saturday given their form in the ongoing Women’s World Cup 2022. The White Ferns, despite not having a favourable record against England women, are well-placed to get the better of the defending champions at home.
England, on the other hand, have just one win so far in the tournament and are realistically on a tightrope as far as their semi-final prospects go. They will be hoping to extend their World Cup 2022 campaign by winning their remaining matches although overcoming New Zealand won’t be easy.
