nzw vs ausw Match Prediction & Analysis

New Zealand are all set to face Australia starting with a 3-match T20I series first before the 3-match ODI series. Australia has been one of the most dominant sides in the women`s cricket`s history and they have never lost a T20I series for the 4 years including two T20I World cup victories. They will look to continue their dream run in this series too. New Zealand on the other hand will take this series as a great opportunity to win a series against Mighty Aussies with their home conditions in favor of them.

Teams Preview

New Zealand Women Preview

New Zealand will depend heavily on their skipper Sophie Devine to help their team return to winning ways. They have a number of experienced players in form of Amy Satterwhite, Maddy Green, Hayley Jenson, and Katey Martin in their batting line-up.

Hannah Rowe, Jess Kerr, and Rosemary Mair will be their first choice pacers in the starting XI alongside the all-rounder Hayley Jenson for company. Amelia Kerr and Leigh Kasperak will form the spin duo for the team. Fran Jones and Thomas Newton will fight out for the lone spot in the playing XI.

Top players to bet on:

Sophie Devine – Devine did not have a good series against England but she will be raring to go in this series. She is the No.1 ranked T20I all-rounder in the world and will look to make a strong comeback with her performances in this series.   

Leigh Kasperak – Kasperak was the pick of the kiwi bowlers in their last series against New Zealand with 4 wickets at an economy of jut 6 RPO. We expect her to paly ab big role in this series too.

New Zealand Women Predicted Playing XI:

Katey Martin (wk), Sophie Devine (c), Amy Satterwhite, Maddy Green, Hayley Jenson, Hannah Rowe, Jess Kerr, Rosemary Mair, Amelia Kerr, Leigh Kasperak, Fran Jones

Australia Women Preview

Australia are one of the power houses of the women`s cricket. They have a destructive batting line-up with all their top-6 players capable of scoring big runs at an aggressive strike rate. Beth Mooney and Alyssa Healy will open the batting with Skipper Meg Lanning, Rachel Haynes, Elysse Perry, and Ashleigh Gardener in the middle order.

Nikola Carey and Megun Schutt will take care of the pace department with the all-rounders Perry and Gardner for company. They have a strong spin department with proven performers like Jess Jonassen, Georgia Wareham, and Sophie Molineaux in the squad.

Top players to bet on:

Elyse Perry – Perry returns to the squad after a long injury lay-off and will look to make an impact straightaway in the first match.  She is a quality player who can contribute equally with both bat and ball.

Beth Mooney – Mooney slipped to second position in ICC batting rankings and will look to regain to the top spot with her brilliant performances in this serious. She has been scoring runs consistently for the last 2-3 years at the top.

Australia Women Predicted Playing XI:

Alyssa Healy (wk), Beth Mooney, Meg Lanning, Rachel Haynes, Elysse Perry, Ashleigh Gardener, Jess Jonassen, Georgia Wareham, Sophie Molineaux, Nikola carey, Megun Schutt

Weather Conditions

Hamilton is expected to have cloudy and overcast conditions on the match day but we don’t expect rain to play spoilsport in the match.

Venue Details

Seddon Park will have a little spice in the pitch and the pacers will enjoy early swing and extra bounce on offer in this track. We expect the average scores to be around 140-160 runs on this venue.

Toss: To Bowl

Chasing teams have 70-80% success in the T20I matches recently and teams are comfortable chasing big targets nowadays so we expect both captains to bowl first if they win the toss.

NZW vs AUSW Winning Prediction

New Zealand has a good batting and bowling department with a lot of experienced players and home conditions to aid them in this series. But, Australia has been a dominant force across all the conditions and formats for a very long time and will be looking to prove them in this series too. Kiwis must play out of their skin to win against this top quality Australia team despite the conditions in their favor. We expect Australia to win this T20I match.

Australia will win the match
