Australia Women have yet again comfortably registered a win in the ODI format and come into the final game as sheer favorites. As they eased past New Zealand Women in the 2nd ODI, Australia registered their 23rd straight victory in the ODI format. This in itself speaks volumes of their dominance and they will look to clinch the ODI series, whitewashing New Zealand Women 3-0 on Saturday, April 10.
New Zealand Women failed to capitalize on the good starts they have had in the series and have eventually lost the series. Leigh Kasperek picked up 6 wickets for 46 runs and even her dominance was neutralized by the opponents. The New Zealand Women were very economical when it comes to their bowling figures and delivered in consistent line and lengths. Amelia Kerr was the only player who displayed character and intent and scored 47 runs.
Australia, on thee other hand, have been clinical in the last two ODI games and displayed great cricketing prowess. The best thing about their batting department is that everybody keeps contributing every time. Even if somebody fails, there will be other players who will fill up the void. In the last game, Rachael Haynes top-scored with 87, skipper Meg Lanning and Alyssa Healy also contributed with their bat. Jess Jonassen picked up 3 wickets and Georgia Wareham took 2 wickets and made sure the good performance of the batters did not go in vain. All these players are in good form and they are must picks in your fantasy team.
