England Women tour of New Zealand, 2011/12 / Commentary

Welcome to Seddon Park in Hamilton for the 2nd Twenty20 International between New Zealand Women and England Women, a curtain-raiser to tonight's 2nd men's Twenty20 International between New Zealand and South Africa.

News from the toss is that New Zealand Women have chosen to bowl first.

Sian Ruck broke her hand at training yesterday after being hit in the nets by a full toss, and she has been replaced by Lucy Doolan. England Women are unchanged after their convincing victory in the opening match on Friday by 6 wickets.

Both New Zealand teams playing today will be wearing black armbands as the local cricket community is in mourning following the sad passing of Canterbury cricket icon Peter Sharp, who had been ill for some time. He was best known for his long service to domestic cricket commentary on Radio Sport, but also played first-class cricket and held many roles within both Canterbury Cricket and New Zealand Cricket.
