Australia are the T20I world champions, and they have dominated matches against New Zealand in recent times.
Australia’s Recent Form
Australia have won 8 of their last 10 games, including 3 of their last 4 against New Zealand.
New Zealand’s Recent Form
New Zealand have won only 3 of their last 10 matches, while losing 7, including their last 3 in succession.
In the last match between New Zealand women and Australia women played at Brisbane on 30 September 2020, Australia batted first and were restricted to 123/7 in their allotted overs thanks to Lea Tahuhu and Amelia Kerr who took two wickets each for New Zealand. New Zealand batters made heavy weather of the target but eventually managed to get there with 3 balls to spare, losing 5 wickets in the bargain. Amy Satterthwaite led the chase with an innings of 30 off 25 balls. New Zealand skipper Sophie Devine made 25 while wicketkeeper Katey Martin chipped in with 23 to give New Zealand a rare win against their trans-Tasmanian rivals. However, the three-match series ended 2-1 in Australia’s favour as the hosts had won the previous two games convincingly.
