Match Preview

This is the 2nd T20I match of the series between Australian women and New Zealand women and the Australian women team is looking in good form. Both teams are looking for a win to claim this series in the last decider match which might turn 2nd T20I into a thriller game at Napier.

In the previous meeting between these two teams, AUS women have registered a series win by 2-1 against NZ women in Brisbane. Now AUS team is touring NZ, so home conditions will be in favour of NZ and offer an advantage to the NZ team.

The Australian side will be looking to take their lead ahead while the NZ will be looking to make a comeback in the series. After losing against England’s team, it is a prestigious series for New Zealand. Somehow the hard pitch at Napier will help the team which will be going to bat first in this 2nd T20I.

Australia Preview

The Australian team have played superbly in the last T20I against New Zealand and have registered a series win. Australian openers gave a good start with the presence of Alyssa Healy and Beth moony in the upper order. Both are looking to gather some runs in this series also. The middle-order is now the main source of runs in the Australian team in which captain Meg Lanning has shown her skills and to help him, Rachel Heynes has delivered superb performances in the lower middle order.

In the bowling department, Australian bowlers have to struggle a lot in power play overs. They have to make consistent efforts to make a victory. The players like Jess Jonassen and Megen Schutt will be the backbone of the Australian bowling order. The bowling performance of the Australian side will be in focus for the match. The death over specialist Megan Schutt is added advantage to the Australian bowling side.

Now Australia’s side is looking very strong in all fields and they will be looking forward to continuing that winning momentum in the series to take a lead.

New Zealand Preview

New Zealand’s opening pair have been in superb form in the last few matches and they have delivered more no of boundaries in past games too. Though Sophia Devine had not scored a good score in past matches, along with Hayley Jensen and Amy Satterthwaite, she will try to score high in early overs in this 2nd T20I.

 In the bowling department, New Zealand’s bowlers were not on the mark and the Australian middle-order will try to easily tackle them in the middle overs. S Devine has taken 3 wickets for 30 runs in his spell of 4 overs vs England’s team and also players like Jess Kerr who has an economy is just 6.29 in T20I will play an important role in the bowling department

The overall team is looking excellent in all fields but they have to look at their middle-order batting and the death over bowling to overcome the Australian side and they will be looking to manage that in this game. Also, they have to work on fielding performance to avoids extra runs.
