Australia Women will take on New Zealand Women in the 3rd game of the 3 game T20 series which will be played at the Allan Border Field in Brisbane. This match is almost a formality as Australia have already clinched the series.
Australia have dominated the series so far and have already clinched the series. They would definitely want to complete the clean-sweep in this game whereas the Kiwis have looked good in patches and they will rely on their senior players to have some say in this game.
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.
