New Zealand vs England: On Tuesday, March 19, 2024, New Zealand will lock horns with England in the first T20I of the five-match series at the University Oval in Dunedin, New Zealand. Both teams are set to play their first T20I encounter in 2024. A five-match T20I series followed by a three-match ODI series will be part of this series. New Zealand last played a T20I series against Pakistan whereas England last played a T20I series against India.

New Zealand have struggled over the last 12 months, losing several series at home and away. Sophie Devine’s side isn’t going through its best phase. The last twelve months have been tough for the side where they have struggled with consistency. They take on one of the strongest teams in this series. Devine would like to see her players take advantage of the home conditions and win this game and it will be interesting to see if they can overcome the challenge England throws at them.

On the other hand, Heather Knight-led England will go into this game with confidence. The side defeated India during their last tour of the subcontinent, and the players will look to draw inspiration from that performance. They have their key players in good form and a strong batting line-up that will help them do well. England has a good record against New Zealand, and Knight would like to see her players do well and take an early lead in the series.

New Zealand vs England, 1st T20I – Key Players

New Zealand

  1. Suzie Bates: She could be the batter to watch out for in the first T20I. The 36-year-old has been in good form of late and has the experience of playing 152 T20Is. She has amassed 27 fifties and one century in the format for New Zealand. Bates is expected to give a strong opening against England.
  2. Hannah Rowe: She took 5 wickets in 2 matches in her last tournament. She is a strong choice and is in prime form. She has a remarkable journey as an all-rounder who injects dynamism into the game through her bold shot-making abilities. Her versatility on the field underscores her importance to the team.


  1.  Tammy Beaumont: She was in fabulous form in The Hundred Women’s. Beaumont can take the bowlers on right from the word go. She will play a key role for England against New Zealand. Her contribution could be proven as vital for the visitors to beat the hosts.
  2. Sarah Glenn: In Sophie Ecclestone’s absence, all eyes would be on the 24-year-old leg-spinner, Sarah Glenn. The experienced campaigner has picked up 64 wickets from 54 matches at an average of 16.93 and an economy rate of 6.10. She could be one of the best players for England in this fixture.
