Australia Women will take on New Zealand Women in the 2nd game of the 3 game ODI series which will be played at the Allan Border Field in Brisbane.
Australia won the first game of the series very convincingly and they would certainly want to win this game and seal the series as well. The Aussies are looking in a fantastic touch whereas the White Ferns would like to play their best cricket in this game so that they can level the series. This game is really important in the context of this series.
Pitch Report – The pitch is a little bit on the slower side and this will be played on the same pitch as the last one so, the winning captain would be tempted to bat here.
