AU-W vs NZ-W Dream11 Team: The women international cricket season starts, and we are here with a preview of the second T20I match of the series between Australia and New Zealand. 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, and his opening partner Healy got out cheaply in the first six overs of the match. Then Lanning and Haynes formed a partnership to set a stable platform for the death overs. Ashley Gardener responded well and gave a great finishing touch to the team. In the bowling department, Megan Schutt is the most impressive bowler in the country and proves it again every time she steps into the field. The All-rounder Elysse Perry can make a comeback and will be a key player for the team in crucial situations.
On the other side, New Zealand although contained the opposition in the first 10 overs, but faltered in the last 10 overs. Sophie Devine was the best performer for the team contributing with both bat and ball. Suzie Bates too chipped in with the contribution but could not get the team over the line while chasing in the death overs. Along with them, the only performer was the wicket-keeper Martin. The rest of the team will have to perform to get better results for the team.
New Zealand Women Tour of Australia, 2020
2nd T20I, Australia Women v New Zealand Women
Date: Sunday, 27th September 2020
Time: 01:45 PM (Local time)- 09:10 AM (IST)
Venue: Allan Border Field, Brisbane
Pitch Report: The track here is usually slower. The average score here is around 145.
Weather Report: The Weather looks alright and ready for the game, with no chances of rainfall.
Australia is a great team and has a good win-loss ratio against the visitors. They are the current World T20 champions and will look to continue their dominance in the world cricket.
Whereas, the New Zealand team does not look a promising side, given their form, and would like to register a win and gain some confidence.
Australia will most probably win this match due to the presence of standout performers like Beth Mooney, Alyssa Healy, and Megan Schutt. The performance of Gardner in the death overs will boost the team’s confidence and keep them ahead in pressure situations.
New Zealand team would look to focus on their bowling department to contain the Aussies to the low score, as that’s where their strength lies. Then, the team would like to improve the batting performance in the middle overs. So they have a lot of issues and don’t look they would cross the line against Australia. Here is the probable XI for AU-W vs NZ-W Dream 11 prediction.
