NZ-W vs AU-W Dream11: Ashleigh Gardner’s impeccable unbeaten 73 off 48 deliveries scripted a famous win for the Aussie women who now go 1-0 up in the three-match T20I series. The two teams will now square off at the McLean Park in Napier for the second T20I.
A loss in the last game is 4th on the trot for the hosts who are desperately struggling for form. They were done and dusted in the recently concluded series against English women, and the way they performed in the first game against the Aussie women, it seems like they have nowhere to go.
Meanwhile, the visitors would be looking to claim an unassailable lead by winning the second T20I. Can they continue with their admirable show, or will the hosts finally come up with something extraordinary? It would be interesting to see,
