Australia Women have not lost a series to New Zealand Women in the last 21 years.
The 3rd match of the ODI series between Australia Women and New Zealand Women will be played at the Allan Border Field in Brisbane.
The match is scheduled to start at 05:40 AM IST (12:10 AM UTC) (09:40 AM Local Time). It will be broadcasted live on Sony Ten 2 and Sony Ten 2 HD. Live streaming will be available on Sony Liv.
Australia Women have not lost a series to New Zealand Women in the last 21 years. It stays that way this time as well as they managed to pull off a masterclass in the 2nd ODI. Meg Lanning led her team from the front with a brilliant century and helped Australia clinch the series.
Compared to the first ODI, the White Ferns put up a better show in the second game. Even though they missed the services of Suzie Bates, they did well with the bat. However, they couldn’t capitalise on to the crucial moments with the ball and thus ended up losing by 4-wickets. Even though this game is essentially a dead-rubber, the hosts would be keen on a clean sweep after missing out in the T20Is.
