Following a three-match T20I series, both teams Australia and New Zealand (AUSW vs NZW) are all set to be part of 50-over contest. They will play three ODI games in the series, which means that both teams would look to start dominating things right from the first game.
Australia Women won the series 2-1, but the Kiwis would be content with the result as well. Kiwis won the last T20I match and will now come out with a renewed belief in the upcoming ODI series.

New Zealand Women Tour Of Australia: 1st ODI, AUSW vs NZW – Pitch Report
The wicket is slightly on the slower side, as seen in T20I series. The pacers will ideally get some swing with the new ball, and both sides will bank on their spinners to restrict the run-scoring in the middle overs. However, batters can get runs if they get settled in the middle.

New Zealand Women Tour Of Australia: 1st ODI, AUSW vs NZW – Fantasy Tips
New Zealand –
Sophie Devine and Amy Satterthwaite looked in sweet form and will be looking to carry that forward. They’d need to pull themselves up in the bowling department and if they can do that, Australia would have their work cut out. As usual, Bates will be their senior pro to deliver.
The hosts are set to miss the services of their ace player Perry, who is suffering from a hamstring injury. However, they have big guns like Mooney, Gardner, Haynes and Lanning to make things happen for the team. In bowling, Schutt will carry the burden.
Captain and Vice-Captain Selection:
