Cricket: White Ferns to tour England in September, as World Cup looms

  • 14/04/2021

The White Ferns will have an opportunity to exact revenge against England, after the announcement of a tour there in September.

The England and Wales Cricket Board will host an eight-game trip for the NZ women's side, featuring three Twenty20 matches and a five-game one-day international series.

In New Zealand earlier this year, England swept the Twenty20 series 3-0, before wrapping up a 2-1 win in the ODIs.

The White Ferns are scheduled to play T20 matches at Chelmsford, Hove and Taunton at the start of September. They will then play ODIs at Bristol, Worcester, Leicester, Derby and Canterbury.

The series will serve as vital preparation for both sides in the lead-up to next year's World Cup in New Zealand, which starts in February.

September 2: First T20, Chelmsford.

September 5: Second T20, Hove.
