With a successful ODI series win behind them, the Proteas Women will be looking to keep the momentum going as they switch gears for the 5-match T20 series against New Zealand, starting on Friday 6 October 2023.

Proteas Women will host the White Ferns at Buffalo Park, East London with the match scheduled to start at 6pm for the first of two Day-Night fixtures in the tour.

Need to Improve

Speaking ahead of the first match all-rounder Marizanne Kapp, expressed that the team wants to be better in the T20 series, especially after the series loss in Pakistan. 

They are looking to maintain their positive brand of cricket that helped them to win the ODI series against New Zealand. 

“I have been a senior in the team for a while now, but Masabata Klaas has been good, Aya and Nonkululeko have been stepping up, and that has been a massive stand out, and to have different players picking up their hands is good for the team.”

Marianne Kapp, Proteas Women All-Rounder

Speaking on her performance, Kapp says: “I would like to perform a bit better with the ball in this series.”

“As an all-rounder, you must keep on working. Some tours you will be better, numbers-wise, in bowling, and some tours, you will be better numbers-wise in batting. 

Looking to Play our Best Cricket

“We are a team and everyone has different roles, and that is the nice thing about being an all-rounder. Nadine and Chloe are brilliant all-rounders.”

“I am blessed to be playing cricket and at World cupC. It is literally about who performs best on the day. And we are looking to play our best cricket.”
