AU-W vs NZ-W Dream11 Team: In the times of pandemic, we are fortunate enough to witness some cricketing action around the world. Cricket Australia has decided to host the series and invited the New Zealand team to start their cricket season after the COVID is stabilized in the country. Both teams have strong players in their ranks. The Australian team must be upbeat after the T20 World Cup triumph earlier this year. The world's best T20 batter, Beth Mooney scored the most runs in the World Cup concluded in March. Along with her, Alyssa Healy was also impressive in the tournament, especially in the finals where she scored 75 runs and helped the team to put up a strong total on the board. In the bowling department, Megan Schutt picked up 13 wickets and was the leading wicket-taker in the tournament. They also have Meg Lanning and Elysse Perry in the team, who can be a key player for the team in crucial situations.
On the other side, in the last T20 match, New Zealand women lost to Australia by 4 runs and the latter entered the semi-finals of the tournament. Sophie Devine was the leading run-scorer, while Hayley Jensen picked most wickets for the team in the T20 World Cup 2020. The team also has the Suzie Bates who has been the driving force of the team over the years, while youngster Amelia Kerr has been impressive since her debut in 2016.It would be interesting to see which team comes over the top in the AU-W vs NZ-W Dream 11 prediction.
