Pitch Report: County Ground, Bristol

The surface at the County Ground in Bristol has consistently offered assistance to bowlers across all formats this season. A score over 250 in the first innings is expected to be competitive.

England Women

England made two changes ahead of the second game in Worcester, bringing in Kate Cross and Alice Capsey for Lauren Bell and Sarah Glenn. Despite having already secured the series, they are likely to stick with the same lineup for this match. England’s 25-year-old opener, Maia Bouchier, has had a stellar series, scoring a half-century and an unbeaten hundred. Alongside Nat Sciver-Brunt, Tammy Beaumont, and captain Heather Knight, England boasts a formidable top four. All-rounder Nat Sciver-Brunt bowled in the second WODI, delivering four overs, including a maiden. She is expected to bowl at least eight overs in the third WODI. England Women have won all their last four completed WODIs.

New Zealand Women

New Zealand made one change for the second WODI, bringing in Lauren Down for Hannah Rowe to strengthen the batting order. They might stick with the same side in Bristol. In the second WODI, only four New Zealand batters reached double figures, with Amelia Kerr top-scoring with 43. Kerr, captain Sophie Devine, and Maddy Green will be crucial in the middle order. Medium pacer Brooke Halliday is the only New Zealand bowler to have picked up a wicket in the series. Captain Devine will look for better performances from her bowlers, particularly Molly Penfold and Kerr, who have maintained economy rates under 5.30. New Zealand Women have lost three of their last four WODIs despite beating England in April.
