NZ-W vs AU-W Dream11 Tips for 3rd T20I New Zealand Women vs Australia Women Today Match Prediction 1 April


NZ-W vs AU-W Dream11: With the series level at 1-1, NZ Women are ready to host Australia Women here at the decider. NZ Women needed a win badly after losing the first match. Without their skipper Sophie Devine, the team showed excellent composure to down the World No.1. The onus will be upon Amy Satterthwaite to lead the team if Devine is unfit. Youngster Amelia Kerr showed good form with the bat and she can play a big role here. The bowling attack will look to continue their collective performance which restricted Australia to just 129 in the last game.

Australia Women meanwhile, had enough chances in the last game and would consider themselves unlucky not to get a win. They have a strong batting order with explosive pair of Healy and Mooney at the top. With Gardner and Perry, they have a strong middle order which can score quick runs towards the end. The bowling is likely to revolve around Schutt, Wareham and Jonassen, all of whom have been impressive so far.

Fantasy Cricket Tips, Captain & Differential Pick
Captain Options
A Kerr- The young 20-year old allrounder is possibly the future of NZ Women’s cricket. In her short career, she has established herself as one of the important players of this NZ side. In a big game, she can play an important role for her side.
T20I Career: Runs 217, Bat Avg. 16, Wkts 39, Bowl Avg. 22
Kerr this series: Runs 56, Bat Avg. 28, Wkts 1, Bowl Avg. 60

A Gardner- If there is one batter in the Australian line-up NZ will be worried about, it will be Ash Gardner. With her power hitting, she can be a player to watch out. She will test the short boundaries of Eden Park and can play a match winning knock here.
T20I Career: Runs 813, Bat Avg. 24, Wkts 23, Bowl Avg. 24
Gardner this series: Runs 76, Bat Avg. 76

Differential Pick
J Jonassen- The left-arm spinner has looked impressive this series with her wicket-to-wicket lines. Spinners have enjoyed relative success at Eden Park in Women’s games which makes Jonassen a crucial pick in the fantasy team.
T20I Career: Wkts 74, Bowl Avg. 20
Jonassen this series: Wkts 3, Bowl Avg. 16
