The T20 series between New Zealand Women and Australia Women was shared 1-1 after rain forced the decider to be abandoned. Now, the action shifts to the 50 over format where the visitors have more of an advantage in our opinion.
These are the two best teams in women’s cricket and know each other very well. There is also something about playing against the Aussies that brings out the best in the New Zealand women!
Expect some fireworks and don’t count anyone just yet.
New Zealand Women vs Australia Women 1st ODI 2021 is going to be played at the Bay Oval, Mount Maunganui on the 4th of April 2021.
New Zealand suffered a humbling series loss to England earlier this year and this next assignment against India is not going to be any easier. New Zealand women have lost their previous six ODI bilateral series in succession and that includes three series played at home.
The cracks have been showing for quite some time now and New Zealand has not been able to come up with answers as of now. To make matters worse, there is also a doubt about the availability of Sophie Devine for this series as she has complained of fatigue and may opt to rest for a while.
New Zealand’s batting is a bit suspect and a lot will rest on Amy Satterthwaite at the top of the order. Maddy Green, Lauren Down, Katey Martin, and the all-rounders add a decent amount of depth in the lineup but their ability to get the big scores is not proven.
Brooke Halliday made an impact against England and will be hoping to get the runs needed to boost her side’s chances. In comparison to Australia, New Zealand lacks the batting firepower need to win consistently.
Among the bowlers, Lea Tahuhu’s return will add some heft to the attack while Jess Kerr, Amelia Kerr, Leigh Kasperek, and Hayley Jensen are expected to be the other players to make the cut for the first ODI.

We have said it before and we are going to say it again: Any match that the Australian women’s team loses is an upset. Their team is so strong that we back them to win in every single kind of condition against all kinds of opposition.
This is why the important thing to note in their case in current form. The team has the names on paper but are they actually living up to their reputations at the moment? Ahead of this match, we think they are.
The batting is very well-stocked with the likes of Meg Lanning, Elyse Perry, and Alyssa Healy available. Beth Mooney is a well-priced pick to the top-scorer for this match while Ash Gardner, Rachel Haynes, and Nicola Carey can all contribute as well.
The toughest part is going to be deciding who to leave out!
The bowling will be led by Jess Jonassen, Megan Schutt, Sophie Molineux, and perhaps Tayla Vlaeminck. There are plenty of options to choose from and Australia should really have no trouble choosing an effective bowling attack from their squad.

The team that wins the toss is likely to want to bat first. Getting a big score on the total and then making the opposition chase under pressure is likely to be the strategy that both teams aim for.

There are some clouds around but there is no rain forecast in Mount Maunganui on match day. This means we should be able to get a full match to enjoy. The pitch is going to be flat and full of runs. The outfield is fast and the ball should race away to the boundary after hitting the gaps.
A score of around 240 should be seen as par.
We are going to back Australia Women in this match. They have a fantastic lineup that has more depth and talent than New Zealand in every aspect of the game.
Bet on Australia Women to win.
