A bottom-placed Otago Women will be up against an in-form Central Districts Women side at the New Zealand Women’s ODD 2020 on December 19. The University Oval in Dunedin will be the host for this game.
Otago Women have been the most disappointing team in this tournament so far. They have played four games and have lost all four. Moreover, all their losses have been by big margins as well. In fact, it is their batting that has failed miserably. Their highest score in this tournament has been 213/8 in 46 overs which came in the very first game. Thus, the Bella James-led side needs to pull up its socks quickly.
On the other hand, Central Districts Women have been very good throughout this tournament. They won three games in a row before losing to Wellington Women in a tight contest. The Anlo van Deventer-led side is currently second on the points table with 15 points.
Their bowlers are the ones who have done the bulk of the work as they have bowled out teams for paltry scores. In fact, Central Districts Women have bowled out their oppositions for scores of 49, 86 and 111 in the first three games. Thus, they will look to continue the good work.
