The England Women's tour of New Zealand 2024 will kickstart with five T20Is followed by three ODIs. The first T20I will be played on March 19 at the University Oval, Dunedin

The last match of the T20I series will be played on March 29 at Basin Reserve, Wellington

As per the ICC Rankings for T20Is, England Women are in the second position while the Kiwis are ranked fourth. 

New Zealand Women and England Women have competed 30 times in the 20-over format. The English side has dominated with 23 wins which includes three victories from the last five encounters. 

The last time these two teams met for a T20 clash was during the Commonwealth Games Women's Cricket Competition 2022 in England. After a poor batting show by the home team, New Zealand Women won the match convincingly by eight wickets. 

As per the team’s recent clashes, New Zealand Women lost their latest T20 series versus Pakistan at home in December 2023. England Women, on the other hand, won their last 20-over series against India Women in an away tour. 

Speaking about the squads, the line-up for the White Ferns includes Sophie Devine, Amelia Kerr and Lea Tahuhu. However, their participation is not certain at least for the tournament opener due to the ongoing Indian T20 league. Pacer Rosemary Mair and all-rounder Brooke Halliday have made a comeback into the line-up. In the spin bowling department, Eden Carson is named for the first, second and third T20Is. Leigh Kasperek will replace her for the remainder of the series. 

The English team will be led by Heather Knight. However, England Women will miss Alice Capsey, Sophie Ecclestone, Natalie Sciver and Danielle Wyatt for the first three games due to the mega-event in India.
