Heather Knight is relishing the opportunity to play cricket in front of a crowd again, as England resume preparations for the defence of their World Cup title in 2022. England were supposed to defend the 50-over title they won at Lord’s in 2017 in New Zealand next month, but the tournament’s postponement has allowed for three one-day internationals and Twenty20s against the White Ferns instead. The series starts in Christchurch on Tuesday and will be the first ODI England will have played since December 2019, when they beat Pakistan in Kuala Lumpur, before the appointment of their current head coach

First ODI : New Zealand v England . Date: 23 February Time: 01:00 GMT Venue: Hagley Oval, Christchurch. Knight 's side should have been defending their 50-over World Cup title next month in New Zealand but the tournament was delayed until 2022 by the pandemic. Tuesday's ODI will be England 's first in the format since they faced Pakistan in December 2019. They are without vice-captain Anya Shrubsole and fellow seamer Katie George because of injuries but left-armer Tash Farrant has been recalled for the first time since she lost her central contract.

England captain Heather Knight says her side must draw lessons from defeat as New Zealand won the third and final one-day international by seven wickets in Dunedin.

England had already wrapped up the series win but missed out on a clean sweep as they were bowled out for 220 despite an unbeaten 88 from Tammy Beaumont, with Amelia Kerr taking four for 42.

New Zealand were 15 for two after the early loss of Natalie Dodd and Hayley Jensen, but once Kerr and Amy Satterthwaite were brought together they carried the game away from England, combining for New Zealand’s highest fourth-wicket partnership in ODI history.

The Mods' interpretations of the above laws is final . Blatant racism or trolling WILL result in a permanent ban without warning. Current Roll of Champions. Top Ranked Sides: Tests - Australia. ODIs - England . England men won a single ODI in a completely different continent to where the women are playing, I honestly don’t see how they could’ve taken any confidence from it. Just ask them about them.

Heather Knight starred with the bat as England picked up their first victory of the Women's Ashes series with a 20-run win in Coffs Harbour.

Together they put on 172 as Satterthwaite hit an unbeaten 119 and Kerr 72 off 88 balls, securing victory in convincing fashion.

“I’m definitely frustrated,” Knight told New Zealand Cricket. “I think we were 30 runs short with the bat. The pitch was a little bit slower than it was and I think the Kiwis bowled brilliantly, particularly that spell from (Hannah) Rowe and (Sophie) Devine first change.

“Me and Tammy really battled to get through that. I was frustrated with the time I got out, I felt like we were just getting going.

“As a positive it was a real learning for us as a side. As a batting unit when the pitch is a little bit slow and we set that platform we’ve really got to find a way to push on to 250-260 consistently.”

NZ without Williamson and $1.4 million

Her talent was evident early on, with her first two ODI caps coming in November 2010. In the six years it took to collect a third, she worked away at the England Academy. A move to Middlesex from Somerset in 2015 was followed by a full central contract at the end of the season, despite carrying drinks rather than churning runs for England .

New Zealand Government increased Covid restrictions following new positive case in Auckland; first two matches of England Women's T20I series to be played without fans in Wellington; New Zealand Men's T20 series vs Australia also affected. England are set to conclude their ODI series against New Zealand on Saturday before a three-match T20 series. The first two matches of England Women's T20 series in New Zealand will take place behind closed doors following an escalation of the coronavirus alert level in the country.

After Knight fell for 60 to leave England on 115 for two, wickets fell regularly as they struggled to regain any momentum.

Defeat ended a run of 10 straight wins across all formats for England, but Knight said they would learn more from a loss than another win as they look to next year and a defence of their World Cup title in New Zealand.

“I love that we were tested today,” Knight added. “Obviously disappointed that we lost, we want to keep winning, but we’ll probably get more from this game than we did the first two, which is a real positive with what we’ve got to come next year.”
