AU-W vs NZ-W Dream11 Prediction | Australia Women vs New Zealand Women 1st ODI Match Preview | Team News and Fantasy Team
New Zealand women find themselves on the other side of the Tasman Sea to face fierce rivals Australia women in their home. The first ODI match of the 3-match tournament will take place tomorrow in Perth.
Venue – WACA Ground, Perth
Date & Time – 22nd Feb | 07:50 AM IST
The Trans Tasman rivalry is on the show for the world to witness once again. Australian Women and New Zealand Women are set to go at each other for regional dominance.
Australia are an unstoppable force when it comes to women cricket. The T20 world champions are often regarded as the best women cricket team in the world. It is for good reason that Australia Women get paid the most in the world among all the women cricket teams. The investment certainly pays off when the Aussies outshine almost every opponent on the pitch.
Even though New Zealand Women are quite good themselves, they still do not stand a chance in the series if Australia Women are on their usual game. The dominance is such that New Zealand haven't won a single ODI series in Australia for 3 decades. The hosts have quality players in every domain and their flexibility is one of their biggest strengths.
It is not easy to defeat Australia down-under, not by any stretch. The Kiwis know they haven't done that in 3 decades and doing that now is also very tough. New Zealand women have quality players of their own, but overcoming Australia in 50 overs might be a task too big to accomplish. However, the top class opening pair of Sophie Devine and Suzie Bates gives the visitors some belief.
If New Zealand are to get anything from the series, they will have to do exceptionally well in every facet of the game. The Kiwis must be hoping they find Aussies rusty in the ODI as format as the hosts haven't played a one day international since last October.
The two teams met in rose bowl ODI series in 2017 where Australia came from behind to win the series 2-1. The Kiwis had won the opening game in their home country, but the Aussies came back strong to win the next two matches.
