Both the teams have registered one win each in this series and the excitement goes on to the third game, in the ultimate decider. After losing the first game, New Zealand women staged an emphatic win in the second game. An exciting match is definitely on the cards and we cricket fans would be treated to some heartwarming cricketing action in the third game.
New Zealand Women came back strongly to level the series in the second game. However, their batting issues go on and they really need to iron out some flaws to comprehensively win this game. Opener Frances Mackay scored 46 runs off 39 deliveries and top-scored for the Kiwis. She also bagged 2 wickets in the match. Jess Kerr took 1 wicket and her line and length was absolutely spot-on.
Australia women made up their below-par batting performance with their incredible bowling display. They kept mounting pressure on the Kiwis and everyone except Jess Jonassen was among wickets. Megan Schutt spearheaded the attack and picked up 2 wickets.
