Match Preview

The T20I series wasn’t as competitive as many expected it to. New Zealand’s players were clearly rusty and their star players misfiring meant an easy path for the Aussies who were ruthless and showed little signs of having had a lay-off. Although the tourists snared a consolation win in the final T20I, they had to really work hard for it. The longer format should allow New Zealand, especially their batters, some breathing space to work their way back into form. With all the matches of this tour being played at Allan Border Field, the surfaces have been on the slower side and the used pitches are bound to continue this trend. Australia have operated smartly, both with bat and ball, not giving the opposition any leeway at all in the first two games. They do have some form concerns of their own but have been collectively much better than New Zealand in the T20Is. Will that change in the ODIs? If the visitors can adapt better, it sure can as their gun players are due for a big score.

Teams Preview

Australia Women

Like their men’s team during the late 1990s and a greater part of 2000s, the current Australian women’s side has been ruthless in the shorter formats. Their record, especially at home, is enviable, having only conceded two ODI series since they first hosted in 1985. Tells you how hard it’s been for visiting teams to win here. The current Australian team is just as fierce and well-balanced, with batting depth and a lot of options in the bowling department. Ellyse Perry’s absence to injury has certainly been a big miss for the hosts but they have managed to adapt in the star all-rounder’s absence in a seamless manner. Meg Lanning’s lack of runs is a concern but the skipper is never that far away from a big score, more so in ODIs which suits her style of play better. Megan Schutt should be a greater threat here, not that she wasn’t in the T20Is. In Perry’s absence, Ashleigh Gardner’s role becomes all the more important and she has been in good touch. Australia will also have the seasoned Molly Strano for the ODIs, and this beefs up their already strong bowling stocks that much more. Australia’s opening combination has been the backbone of their batting, and with the depth they have, New Zealand’s bowlers could be under serious pressure if they aren’t up for it.

New Zealand Women

The twin failures of Suzie Bates and Sophie Devine hurt them badly in the T20Is, and the result was there for all to see. It’s evident that NZ depends a lot on the duo for their success, more so Devine, given her starry impact with both bat and ball. Bates’ form was a bigger concern as the former captain literally struggled to rotate strike through the series. It could be put down to rust and the veteran will be keen to bounce back. The Kiwis will need her to, along with skipper Devine if they are to challenge the mighty Aussies who have been near-invincible at home in ODIs. The batting does have depth with a lot of all-rounders in there but unlike T20Is, ODIs demand a lot more stability and contribution from the top order. The longer format might just be the tonic NZ needs for their key batters to shrug off their rust. The bowling department seems fairly settled and was decent in the T20Is too. So it’s up to the batters to take more responsibility if the visitors are to compete in the ODIs. All-rounder Amelia Kerr is a key figure in this NZ line-up and her form will play a big part in the visitors’ fortunes through these three games.

It’s expected to be another hot and humid day in Brisbane with plenty of sun baking the atmosphere, and it will be a test of players’ fitness. The surface should be good to bat on but as three games have already been played at the venue, expect it to be on the slower side.

Venue Details

Allan Border Field has been a prominent venue in women’s cricket across formats, having hosted a major chunk of the recent World Cup as well.

Toss Prediction

Given that it’s a morning start, there could be some tackiness in the pitch early on and this could make captains opt to bowl. The surface should get better as the sun beats down on it. That said, an above-par total could take some chasing down given the slowing nature of the deck.

Winning Prediction

Australia are potentially a much stronger side than New Zealand, and at home, their potency increases manifold. Apart from the enviable home record, the Aussies also know these conditions much better than their opponents. Their batters and bowlers know how to operate on these decks perfectly. Although New Zealand have had three games at this venue already, their players still seem to be in the process of finding their feet after the long lay-off. With respect to form and team strength, Australia seem like the team that should win this contest and it will be a miracle if the game is competitive.
