New Zealand Women vs Australia Women 2021 : CAN SOPHIE WIN IT FOR HER TEAM? || 2nd T20I

New Zealand Women vs Australia Women 2021

2nd T20I – Tue, 30th March

New Zealand Under Pressure?

Although the White Ferns surrendered to yet one more loss, they did give the Aussies a sprint for their wealth in the first T20I. Ashleigh Gardner’s blitz negated Sophie Devine and the team in the last ten overs, but there were many fruits to take away from the loss. Amy Satterthwaite played a handy knock and should carry her form in this game too. Jess ker was the only effective bowler in the lot.

Nevertheless, New Zealand Women will need their big players to step up to the forefront, and the burden will be on Amelia Kerr and Sophie Devine to produce with ball and bat if they want to level the series on Tuesday. But it isn’t going to be easy alongside Australia, a side that radiates class and poise like no other team in the women’s category.

Possible playing XI: Sophie Devine (C), Amy Satterthwaite, Hannah Rowe, Brooke Halliday, Hayley Jensen, Frances Mackay, Amelia Kerr, Jess Kerr, Rosemary Mair, Maddy Green, Katey Martin (WK).

Fiery Australia:

Fortunate with flawless depth and stability, Australia will enter this game as obvious favourites with a series win in their sights. While their bowlers will be crucial once again, all eyes will be on their top triad of Beth Mooney, Alyssa Healy, and captain Meg Lanning, all of whom had a game to overlook in the last game. 

Ashleigh Gardner, Ellyse Perry, and Jess Jonassen were the star players in the last game. Each of them delivered to their potent and contributed to the win.

Possible playing XI: Alyssa Healy (WK), Beth Mooney, Nicola Carey, Georgia Wareham, Ellyse Perry, Ashleigh Gardner, Jess Jonassen, Megan Schutt, Meg Lanning (C), Rachael Haynes, and Tayla Vlaeminck.

The venue, Pitch Report, and Toss Prediction:

The second T20I between New Zealand Women and Australian Women will be played at McLean Park on 30th March Tuesday.

A comparatively high-notching game is on the cards, but there will be some assistance on the speedsters’ bid. While there should be an additional swing and bounce off the wicket for the fast bowlers, the spin bowlers should also come into play as the match proceeds. With this being an evening clash, dew could play a part in the second innings. Both sides will look to chase, with 150 being a viable total at this ground.  

Tops Value:

Despite failing in the last game, New Zealand Women will depend on their skills with home conditions. Much will carry on skipper Sophie Devine’s shoulders, who is due for a vital knock in the series. With both teams looking for a win, we must be in for a fantastic game of cricket.

Australia Women start as the absolute favourites at the odds of 1.14, and New Zealand Women are at the odds of 4.75. We don’t reconcile with the difference in odds, and the market has overstated the last Aussie win. We believe the hosts are a healthy side and are competent enough to upset those odds.
