New Zealand 203

This was certainly not what we were expecting after that excellent start from Devine and Bates. Brunt and Shrubsole struggled at the start, but good captaincy from Knight saved the innings. Rather than push her senior bowlers through, she took a chance on Cross – paired with the experienced Sciver – and it paid off in a big way, with the scoring drying up immediately. Then it was Ecclestone and Dean who were so economical, but also took some very key wickets and really pushed NZ into the danger zone. The loss of Devine to injury was unfortunate for NZ, as if she had been able to bat on, it may have been a different story. She is such a talismanic captain and can really shape an innings. She didn’t look quite right when she came back and wasn’t able to continue her momentum. Maddy Green was solid, but not sensational and Jess Kerr’s late hitting looked like it could do some damage, but it was too little, too late. This doesn’t look like enough runs on what we saw yesterday was a good batting wicket, but anything could happen from here. NZ are desperate to stay alive in this tournament and maybe they can pull off a miracle with the ball? Stay tuned, because it’s certain to be a fascinating second innings. I’ll hand you over now to the excellent James Wallace, who will take you through England’s batting innings. Thanks for hanging out with me – I’ll see you for another OBO very soon!
