After England and West Indies, it is New Zealand and Australia (AUSW vs NZW), who resumed international cricket for women teams. The Kiwi women are travelling Australia for a three-match T20I series following by ODI games. As the series is being played after a long time, both teams would like to start it on a winning note.

Both teams have equipped superstars in the lineup, which makes this contest a must-watch for the spectators. The likes of Lanning, Haynes and Gardner will be on the show for Australia while Sophie Devine, Bates and Satterthwaite are eager to perform for New Zealand.

Generally, this venue has the tendency to produce big scoring matches in T20 cricket where the chasing teams like to chase the 180+ targets. However, being a women game, we can expect a decent thriller with moderate totals of 150-160 on the board.

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.

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.
