Match Details:

The 1st match of the T20I series between Australia Women and New Zealand Women at the Allan Border Field in Brisbane.

The match is scheduled to start at 09:20 AM IST (03:50 AM UTC) (01:50 Local Time). It will be broadcasted live on Sony Six and Sony Six HD.


New Zealand Women are currently in Australia for a three-match T20I series followed by the ODI series. Starting off well in such a short series, especially in the T20Is, will be critical for both the teams. After losing the first game, it is usually tough to bounce back with two back-to-back wins. Both the teams have got quite strong squads in place. They would fancy making the best use of their resources and getting off the mark early.
