Spinner Holly Colvin believes New Zealand will be out for revenge against England in the early hours of Thursday.England face the White Ferns – who they beat twice at this year’s Women’s World Cup – in Barbados, in a Twenty20 tri-series also involving West Indies.
“They will be looking to get revenge having not done so well against us in the World Cup,” said Sussex’s Colvin.
“New Zealand are a side never to be underestimated. They have got some strong hitters and some canny bowlers.”
The triangular series began on Monday as the hosts beat New Zealand – who were bowled out for 81 – by 23 runs.
The time difference means the day/night fixtures take place in the early hours of the following day from a UK perspective, starting at midnight.
England have travelled to the Caribbean with an inexperienced squad as they are without several players who are recovering from injuries.
But Knight said: “Quite a few of our players came out of the Ashes injured so they have sent a young team out there.
“There are a few young and exciting players, so it should be good to see how they get on.”
After the tri-series – in which the three sides play both opponents twice each before the top two meet in the final – England move to Trinidad for a three-game one-day international side against the Windies. – BBC Sport
