NZ-W vs AU-W Dream11 Tips for 1st T20I New Zealand Women vs Australia Women Today Match Prediction 28 March


NZ-W vs AU-W Dream11: The Australian Women’s tour of New Zealand is about to start and the first T20I will be played here at Hamilton. New Zealand Women are struggling to be honest and will look to put up a strong performance here. Sophie Devine’s form is a concern for them and this series will be important for her. The squad has a good blend of youth and experience and players like Satterthwaite and Devine will be looking to set up an example at the top. Rosemary Mair will lead the fast bowling attack in Tahuhu’s absence. The eyes will be on 20-year old Amelia Kerr who has established herself as the future of White Ferns.

Australia Women are returning to international cricket after a gap of 6 months but they look a strong and a talented side. The batting looks powerful as it has always been with Alyssa Healy and Meg Lanning at the top. Ash Gardner can provide the power hitting in the middle overs along with Rachel Haynes. Schutt will lead the bowling attack which also comprises the experience of Jonassen and Molineux.

Fantasy Cricket Tips, Captain & Differential Pick
Captain Options
A Kerr- The legspinner is the future of White Ferns and her all-round performance will be important for her team. In the last series played against Australia, she played a starring role in the 2 wins for NZ Women.
T20I Career: Runs 161, Bat Avg. 14, Wkts 38, Bowl Avg. 21

A Healy- The wicketkeeper-batter is a devastating player in this format as she showed in the WT20 final. Her style suits this format and with shorter boundaries, she can provide Australia a flying start.
T20I Career: Runs 2107, Avg. 25

Differential Pick
S Molineux- Molineux’s all-round ability makes her a top pick in the fantasy team. She bowls stump-to-stump lines with her left-arm spin and can score few quick runs lower down the order.
T20I Career: Runs 47, Bat Avg. 8, Wkts 23, Bowl Avg. 20

NZ-W vs AU-W Dream11 Prediction

BAT: A Satterthwaite, A Gardner, M Green, R Haynes
WK: A Healy
ALL: A Kerr, E Perry
BOWL: M Schutt, R Mair, S Molineux, G Wareham
