by  Neel Ashar  •  Last updated on 2021-04-03 13:41:03


Australia Women and New Zealand Women take on each other in a 3 match ODI series starting from 4th April on Sunday. After rain washed away the series decider T20I match a few days ago, both teams would want to cash in on this ODI and build the momentum from thereon. The first ODI would be held at the picturesque Bay Oval in Mount Maunganui, New Zealand and would commence from 4:30 A.M. IST onwards. It would be a clash of two titans in this format with neither of them refusing to give up no matter how tense the scenario is. 

Who are the favourites?

Neither Australia Women nor New Zealand Women are the overwhelming favourites to win this ODI match. They both have plenty of gas in the tank in the batting and bowling departments to not only compete with any opposition but also flog them by a gargantuan margin. Both of them possess the skills required to excel in this format. 

Scorecard Predictions

1) If New Zealand Women bat first, they will score 265/7. Australia Women will chase this down in 48 overs with 4 wickets to spare. 

2) If Australia Women bat first, they will score 275/8. New Zealand Women will chase this down in 49 overs and 5 wickets to spare. 

Toss Prediction

Expect the captain winning the toss to bowl first, given that the pitch would be uniform and flat for the total duration of the match. Batsmen would be easily able to hit through the line and score hefty runs if they get themselves in. 

Market Odds (as of 11:00 A.M. IST, 3 Apr 2021 )

Expect a tough clash betwixt two very strong teams and Australia Women to win by a poky margin.
