New Zealand Women tour of Australia, 2018
Australia Women vs New Zealand Women, 3rd T20
After notching up the T20I series 2-0, the Southern Stars will look to clean sweep the White Ferns’ when they lock horns in the third and final T20 at Canberra on Friday.
Venue:- Manuka Oval, Canberra
Match Timing:- Friday, October 05, 2018, 02:50 PM IST
Just like the first game, Australian Women were imperious in a run-chase after the White Ferns had posted 8-145 in 20 overs. After Rachael Haynes and Meg Lanning steered their side from a precarious position to chase down 5-162, it was wicket-keeper Alyssa Healy (57) and Elyse Villani (50) who steered their run-chase of 149 past the finishing line after they’d lost Beth Mooney for a duck.
For the White Ferns’, Suzie Bates, with 77, was the lone shining light with the bat in an insipid batting display which saw them post an underwhelming 8-145 in 20 overs.
With the series already gone, Satterthwaite-led sie will look to salvage some pride and build some winning momentum ahead of the all-important Womens World Twenty20 next month.
