Just like the ODI series, the T20I series has panned out in a similar way, with England Women running through New Zealand Women in the first two games. In fact, in both the first two ODIs and the first two T20Is, England Women bowled first and restricted New Zealand Women to sub-par scores.
New Zealand Women have batted poorly throughout the series and have shown very little signs of improvement. On the bowling front, New Zealand Women haven't looked threatening enough.
Meanwhile, England Women have been superb with both the bat and ball. While the top-order has looked solid, the middle-order has scored runs too. Their bowling has simply been brilliant and England Women will be the favorites once again on Sunday.

Match: New Zealand Women vs England Women 3rd T20I
Date: March 7th 2021, 7:30 AM IST
Venue: Westpac Stadium, Wellington
It will be the second successive game on the same surface at the Westpac Stadium on Sunday. With New Zealand facing Australia in the fifth T20I, it is going to be a used pitch, which is likely to assist the spinners. However, there might be some movement on offer for the fast bowlers with the new ball. Both teams would want to bowl first upon winning the toss.
