Match Preview

ICC Women's T20 World Cup has reached the final stages of the league phase with India being the only team to qualify for the knockouts so far. Australia and New Zealand face-off in a virtual quarterfinal match with the winner going to the next round.

Australia came back strongly to win back-to-back matches against Sri Lanka & Bangladesh respectively. New Zealand too had a similar fate after winning their matches against Sri Lanka and Bangladesh they ended up losing against India. Australia has an upper hand with its consistency over the last 2 years and better NRR which might help them in case of wash-out. We can expect a cracking contest between two quality sides going into the knockouts.

New Zealand made a miraculous comeback in the last match to defend 91 runs against Bangladesh. Sophie Devine`s dream run of 6 consecutive 50+ scores came to an end against India. Rachael Haynes, Amelia Kerr, and Maddy Green have come up vital 20s and 30s with the bat so far.

Bowling is their stronger suit and has taken 25 wickets so far. Leigh Kasperek and Hayley Jensen took 3 wickets and never allowed any partnership to bloom in the last match. Amelia Kerr, Sophie Devine, and Anna Paterson had combined figures of 11-0-35-2 to strangle the opposition.

Weather Conditions

The weather looks bright and sunny with no chances of rain on match day.

Venue Details

The pitches in Australia have worn and tear due to their used nature and we can expect Canberra Oval to be a slow pitch aiding the spinners. Last match 20 wickets fell for a combined run tally of just 162 runs here. We can expect average scores in the range of 120-130 runs in this match.

Toss: To Bat

Teams batting first have 7-2 win-loss record in the last 9 matches and pitch tends to slow down as the match progresses. Both captains will look bat first in this match.

Winning Prediction

Australia's team has looked different after their loss against India in the opening match. They will look to peak at the right moment and a loss in this match will be a shocking first-round exit for their team.

New Zealand has battled tough situations and came down fighting till the wire in the last two matches. The Kiwis have quality players who can do well in crunch situations. But, home conditions and consistency over the last 2 years tilts us to predict the match in favor of Australia.

Australia will win the match and qualify for the semi-finals!
