New Zealand women (NZ-W) will lock horns with Trans-Tasmanian rivals Australia women (AU-W) in match 11 of the ICC Women’s ODI World Cup 2022 at Basin Reserve in Wellington, New Zealand on Sunday, March 13. The game will start at 3:30 AM IST.
After a disappointing three-run defeat to West Indies women, the Sophie Devine-led New Zealand registered a nine-wicket triumph over Bangladesh women and a 62-run win over India. The White Ferns are currently placed third in the ICC Women’s World Cup 2022 standings with four points from three matches.
On the other hand, Australia women have made a dominant start to their World Cup campaign after winning both their matches so far. The Meg Lanning-led side defeated England by 12 runs and thrashed Pakistan by seven wickets to register back-to-back wins. The Australia women are currently second in the standings with four points from two games.
NZ-W vs AU-W Dream11 prediction
Australia women have a dominant head-to-head record against New Zealand women in One-Day International (ODI) cricket, winning 49 of the 62 matches that they have contested so far. New Zealand women have secured 12 victories while one match was abandoned. Furthermore, the Aussies have lost just one ODI match in the last four years and will start as favourites on Sunday.
NZ-W vs AU-W Dream11 team tips for ICC Women’s World Cup 2022
Top tip: Best batter
Australia women’s Rachael Haynes has been one of the standout batters in the ICC Women’s World Cup so far. The 35-year-old opening batter has scored 164 runs in two matches at an average of 82. She smashed a scintillating hundred against England women to help Australia women secure a 12-run victory. Haynes has accumulated 213 fantasy points and will be a worthy fantasy pick for this clash at 9 credits.
Top Tip: Best bowler
Alana King has been the wrecker-in-chief for Australia women in the ongoing ICC tournament. The leg spinner has bagged five wickets in two matches. Having accrued 153 fantasy points, picking in-form King in any fantasy team is a no-brainer.
Top Tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
Among the all-rounders, one must pick New Zealand’s Amelia Kerr in the fantasy team. The 21-year-old has scored 110 runs and also picked four wickets in three matches so far. She has amassed 278 fantasy points so far and will look to add more to her tally on Thursday.
For the wicket-keeper spot, Alyssa Healy of Australia will be the preferred choice over Katey Martin of New Zealand. Healy has already scored 100 runs in two matches, along with fulfilling her wicket-keeping responsibilities. At 9 credits, she will be a valuable fantasy pick for this clash.
NZ-W vs AU-W probable playing XI
NZ-W playing XI (probable): Suzie Bates, Sophie Devine (captain), Amelia Kerr, Amy Satterthwaite, Maddy Green, Katey Martin (wicketkeeper), Hayley Jensen, Lea Tahuhu, Jess Kerr, Frances Mackay, Hannah Rowe
