White Ferns to play three times in Nelson this November


The New Zealand White Ferns women’s cricket team will play two one day internationals and a twenty20 international at Nelson’s Saxton Oval in November.

New Zealand will play Pakistan in all three games, with the two ODIs on November 17 and 19 starting at 11am and the T20 match starting at 3pm on November 21.

The Pakistan women have only visited New Zealand once before – in 1997, losing both ODIs.

The White Ferns have also prevailed in the only two other internationals between the sides, winning in pool play at the 2009 and 2013 ICC Women’s’ World Cups, respectively.

Pakistan will play the first three games of the five match ODI Series at Lincoln, before moving to Nelson’s Saxton Oval for the final two ODIs and the stand-alone T20.

The team is preparing for the 2017 Women’s World Cup.
