New Zealand Women vs Australia Women: 2nd ODI, April 7, Australia Tour of New Zealand Match Prediction
The T20I series swung back and forth and had tense moments. But in ODIs, there’s no challenging the mighty Aussies under Meg Lanning. The side has a reputation for producing some of the greatest women cricketers and with a record 22 consecutive wins, they have shown they are a champion side second to none. The Bay Oval in Mount Maunganui will witness another big game between the two Trasm-Tasmanian neighbours on the 7th of April. Australia Women start as bjg favourites after a crushing win in the first game.
Australia Women are arguably the greatest 50-over side ever in the game. The team has a lot of superstar cricketers who have toiled hard at domestic level and found their calling on the big stage. The Australian women’s team has had a stellar couple of years, barely losing any major game since a rather underwhelming showing in the 2017 Women’s World Cup where they exited in the semi-final after a loss to India. New Zealand Women aren’t too bad a side themselves but the loss against the Australian side was their tenth in a row against them.
The Australian women’s side has quality in batting and bowling and immense depth. Megan Schutt and Nicola Carey ran through New Zealand in the first ODI after they won the toss and chose to bowl. With the bat, it was another clinical showing from the batters as Alyssa Healy, Ellyse Perry and Ashleigh Gardner made half-centuries to take the side home by six wickets to spare. The side hardly has any weakness with bat or ball, making them a crackjacker unit tough to beat in any condition. weakness in that side.
New Zealand Women are majorly hit by the absence of Sophie Devine, but Lauren Down’s big innings on Sunday allowed them to make a decent total. Their record in ODI cricket has been questionable in the last few years. They were on a losing streak of 11 matches in this format earlier in the year. With the big star missing and a couple of other injuries, the White Ferns have their task cut out against a solid Australia side.
Australia Women enjoy a fantastic head-to-head record against their rivals across the sea. The last time New Zealand Women got the better of their Australia counterparts in an ODI dates back to early 2017. After a walk in the park in the first game, a series whitewash isn’t too far-fetched to fathom.
Australia Women have been in stunning form and will take some stopping. Overall, Australia Women have won 97 of their head-to-head games with New Zealand while the Kiwis have won just 31. The table shows the head-to-head record between the two sides.
