NZ-W vs AU-W Dream11 Tips for 1st ODI New Zealand Women vs Australia Women Today Match Prediction 4 April


NZ-W vs AU-W Dream11: After a closely contested T20I series, NZ Women and Australia Women will be up against each other here at Mount Maunganui. New Zealand Women will look to build up the momentum that they gained from the second T20I. Losing their skipper Devine and Mackay has further added to their worries. Stand-in skipper Satterthwaite and Amelia Kerr will have big responsibilities on their shoulders to lead the team to a competitive total. Lea Tahuhu’s comeback will give the side confidence in the bowling department with Rowe and Mair likely to support her.

Australia Women meanwhile, will go into this series as a confident side. They have been the No.1 side for a while now and will look to showcase their talent. Skipper Meg Lanning has been a modern day great for them along with the blockbuster pair of Healy and Mooney at the top. With Schutt, Jonassen and Wareham, the bowling seems to be complete while Vlaeminck has added much needed pace to this bowling attack.

Players like Lanning, Perry and Healy make them a formidable batting side. The last time these two teams met in an ODI series, Australia clean swept NZ 3-0. So, it will be a great challenge for NZ to get past this great Australian side in the upcoming Rose Bowl matches. Australia Women will start as favourites in the NZ-W vs AU-W Dream 11 Today Match Prediction.
