New Zealand emerged victorious over England by a margin of three runs in the third women’s T20 international, as recorded in the live updates.

The latest episode of ESPNcricinfo’s Powerplay podcast focuses on the current state of women’s cricket in New Zealand. We discuss the ups and downs of the national team in the past few years, as well as the ongoing challenge of balancing franchise commitments with international opportunities and scheduling.

“It’s a major advantage when I speak to up-and-coming female athletes…The sport of cricket is a highly appealing career option in New Zealand due to its scarcity. While there are larger issues at play, it’s important to approach things realistically and with perspective, understanding that change will take time. As long as we continue to make progress and compete with top countries like Australia and England, we can certainly establish ourselves as a top contender.”

Her team must work hard today and secure a victory in order to stay in the series.

Come and join us at 12am GMT/1pm local time for the excitement, and even earlier to catch up on the latest news and the coin toss. I will be here with plenty of energy to keep us going, and maybe even some extra refreshments. As always, send us a message if you’re tuning in, I can’t do this alone. Actually, I can, but let’s not worry about it.
