Australia Women will take on New Zealand Women in the first game of the ODI Series, on (February 22) at WACA Ground, Perth, Australia.
Australia Women are the winners of the ICC World Cup and can be regarded as the most dominant side in cricket right now. The team is filled with superstars and anyone can turn things around for the side if they face adversity. The chemistry amongst players is unparalleled and it is clear that their pursuit for excellence has seen them get a massive success in international cricket. They will be looking to build on this solidarity, and become even better by clinching this ODI series win from their neighbours and arch-rivals.
Meanwhile, New Zealand Women are always looked upon as the side who has a lot of potential but always ends up falling short in clutch situations. The team too is filled with players with exceptional talent, one such being Amelia Kerr, who is one of the only two women to score 200 in ODIs. They have arguably the best all-rounders in the world, and management has to integrate them in a better way or else these group of players will not be getting any success in terms of winning tournaments in the coming years.
The match will begin at 7:50 AM IST.
