Australia couldn't have hoped for a better start to their cricketing summer as Australian Women edged past New Zealand Women by 17-runs. Both sides looked far from their best but considering that they both were playing after a long break, that is hardly surprising. We expect them both to come out with better performances in the next match, which is to be played on 27th September at Allan Border Field, Brisbane. There isn't much time to ponder upon and do away with the vulnerabilities exhibited in this match, but we can expect more intensity from both sides.
Right after they were put in to bat by New Zealand Women, Australian Women looked far from fluent with the bat on a tricky surface. They lacked the same aggression, the same precision, and the same intensity as they displayed in the T20 World Cup, but would be happy that they eventually ended up being on the right side of the result.
With Elysse Perry out of the side, Australia were never going to be the same team considering the balance she brings to the table. However, Ashleigh Gardner held their innings beautifully and played an innings of substance to push Australia to a total that they ended up defending with considerable ease.
Australian innings never gathered pace as they kept losing wickets at regular intervals. Apart from Ashleigh Gardner, Meg Lanning and Rachel Haynes looked comfortable in the middle, but they too failed to convert starts into a big knock. Gardner was dismissed in the 19th over after scored a 41-ball 61, but she had done the job by then.
While Gardner played a vital role in setting up the match for the Aussies, it was their bowlers that won them the match. New Zealand Women got off to a reasonably good start, but the Aussie Women did an excellent job to pull things back. Their comeback was led by Megan Schutt, who picked up 4 wickets for 23 runs in her 4 overs. She was ably assisted by Delissa Kimmince and Jess Jonassen, who picked up three wickets between them.
Overall, Australian Women would be happy to register a win in the opening match, especially after the position they were in at the halfway mark. Although they looked a bit jittery with the bat for the most part of their innings, their bowlers looked in fine rhythm. Given that we are likely to play on the same surface, the Aussies will be better prepared to handle the conditions, and beating them won't be easy.

New Zealand Women perhaps missed the best chance of defeating the Australian Women given the job their bowlers did in the first match of the series. While a couple of their bowlers did appear to be a bit out of form, combined they did an excellent job to keep Australia to a manageable total. Sophie Devine topped up her fantastic performance with the bat in the warm-up match with an equally impressive performance with the ball as she picked up three important wickets.
Even though the surface was a bit tricky to bat on, the total of 138 shouldn't have been as difficult to chase down as the Kiwi batsmen made it to be. Barring Sophie Devine, Suzie Bates, and Katey Martin, none of their batsmen looked comfortable in the middle. Among those three as well, only Martin was able to score at a strike-rate that matched the required run-rate. They were well and truly in the game when Martin and Bates were in the middle, but their dismissals in the 18th over proved to be the end of the Kiwi reply.
On paper, New Zealand are one of the few well-balanced sides in Women's Cricket. Sophie Devine, Suzie Bates, and Amy Satterthwaite have wealth of experience behind them and that could come in handy in crunch situations. Having said that, they looked underprepared in the first match and it would be interesting to see the approach they adopt for the second match. If they can be a little more aggressive and responsible with the bat, the Aussies will have their work cut out.

Both sides are just getting into the groove of competitive cricket after a long time and would like to see how the surface behaves. Although the team batting first won the opening match, the team batting second was in a pretty good position at the halfway mark. Therefore, winning the toss and fielding first would be the way to here.

This is just the beginning of the Australian summer and the weather is expected to be nice and clear for a day's Cricket. The temperature is likely to hover around 23 degrees given that it is an evening game, we might see dew having an impact towards the end of the match. There has only been one match played on this surface before the series and Australia Women won that match chasing a total of 145 set by New Zealand Women. Once again we expect a similar score to be scored by the team batting first. We are unlikely to see much help for the spinners here and with the dew is not going to be a factor. The team batting first would want to post a total of at least 150 runs on the board.

It wasn't surprising to see Australians emerged on top in the opening match as they were anyway the favorites. However, their batting looked completely out of sorts and would need to do a better job in the upcoming match. The same was the case with the Kiwis as only three players scored in the double-figures for them. Comparing the two sides on-paper, Australian Women are certainly ahead. Besides, they are coming off an important win in the first match and that should help them ease back into competitive cricket. With a 1-0 lead in the series, they'd have a lot less pressure to perform than their Kiwi counterparts, and for that as well as the other reasons stated above, Australian Women are better-placed to emerge on top in the upcoming encounter.
