Australia Women are expected to win this match and make it a clean sweep.
The 3rd match of the T20I 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 09:15 AM IST (03:45 AM UTC) (01:45 PM Local Time). It will be broadcasted live on Sony Six and Sony Six HD. Live streaming will be available on Sony Liv.
After going down in the three-match series 2-0, New Zealand will be coming into this match, just to save their grace and avoid giving a clean sweep to the Aussies. In the first match, the Aussie women clinched the match by a 17 run margin. They followed it up with an equally good performance in the second match of the series, winning the match by 8 wickets and getting the series to their name.
So, as stated earlier, the women from New Zealand will be coming in with the objective to avoid a whitewash and make as big a dent in the Australian morale before heading into the One-Day Internationals which begins from the 3rd of October. The Aussies will be wanting to get a series whitewash and go into the ODI series with big momentum on their side.
