AU-W vs NZ-W Dream11 Prediction | Australia Women vs New Zealand Women 2nd ODI Match Preview | Team News & Fantasy Team
Australia clinched a very closely fought contest to defeat the visitors New Zealand in the first ODI of the 3-match series. The Aussies were the favourites, but the Kiwis showed them their mettle to make for an exciting 2nd One Day International. The second match will be crucial as it could see the hosts win the series or the visitors make a comeback.
Venue – Karen Rolton Oval, Adelaide
Date & Time – 24th Feb | 06:20 AM IST
Australia women were touted to put New Zealand in their place and come out as comfortable winners. However, it was a much more evenly matched contest in the first One Day International at Perth than expected. The Australians ran out victorious but by a mere 5 runs. Batting first, Australia women posted a total of 241 runs on board. In response, the Kiwis fell just 5 runs short by finishing on 236 runs in the 50 overs.
New Zealand deserve much credit for the way they handled the pressure and almost got to the finish line. At one point, the visitors were sailing towards a win but Sattherwaite’s valiant effort was not supported well enough by her team-mates. The Kiwis can take great confidence from their wholesome display and push for a win at Adelaide.
Earlier, New Zealand Bowlers had done well to not let Aussies find their groove. They know that their bowling attack will have to be at their best to trouble Australia in the second game. There is high anticipation for the second ODI which could be decisive. A mouthwatering Trans-Tasman fight is in the offing.
