Sydney, February 28, Thursday
New Zealand Women will be taking on Australia's Governor General XI tomorrow at Drummoyne Oval, Sydney ahead of the 3rd ODI (ICC Championship match) against Australia Women. The hosts lead the 3-match series by 2-0 and would be eyeing a complete whitewash when both the sides will lock horns at March 03, Sunday at Junction Oval, Melbourne.
New Zealand Women would be hoping to work on their batting unit which has been the main cause of the loss in both the games played so far. They fell short by 5 runs while chasing 242 runs target in the first game and were bowled out at 152 runs in the second game.
The warmup-match comes as a perfect opportunity for the visitors to focus more on their batting line-up and get back in the rhythm.
Alex Blackwell will lead Australia's Governor General XI and boast Heather Graham, Sammy Jo Johnson, Annabel Sutherland, Rachel Trenaman and Belinda Vakarewa in their ranks. While the game has no such significance in the series, it will act as a platform for the visitors to test their strength.
