New Zealand Women are going to be up against Bangladesh Women tomorrow at Newlands, Cape Town.
Both these teams have lost their first two matches and losing a third game from here will shatter their chances of making it to the semis of the tournament.
Which is why both these teams will look to get a maiden win under their belts when they clash tomorrow.
Furthermore, looking at the teams, Bangladesh Women were defeated by Sri Lanka Women and Australia women in their last two outings.
Moreover, New Zealand Women were outclassed by Australia Women and then by South Africa Women.
Therefore, winning tomorrow’s game will be the ultimate ticket to the semifinals for both these teams.
In their last two games, New Zealand Women were unable to reach even the 100-run mark as they were bundled out for 76 and 67 respectively.
Meanwhile, Bangladesh Women showed a better performance as they crossed the 100-run mark in both matches but they too suffered losses.
New Zealand players such as Sophie Devine, Amelia Kerr, Suzie Bates, and Hayley Jensen have not been able to fire.
Thus, tomorrow’s game will be an interesting one to watch for fans.
