New Zealand Women suffered their second consecutive ODI series defeat this year as they went down to the Australia Women twice in two games. The White Ferns had their moments in the series as they lost the first game only by five runs. Chasing 242 at the WACA, the New Zealand Women were 188/4 in the 42nd over before suffering a collapse. Their skipper Amy Satterthwaite’s 92-run knock went in vain.
NZ were 92/2 in the 21st over chasing 248 in Adelaide but bundled out for only 152. Ellyse Perry’s maiden ODI century set up the series win for the Southern Stars. Jess Jonassen, who was overlooked in the WT20, showed her worth as an all-rounder. She scored 52 runs across both games and claimed nine wickets including two four-wicket hauls. The hosts would undoubtedly be hoping to complete a whitewash and continue their domination in the ICC Women’s Championship.
The third and final game of the 3-match ODI series between Australia Women and New Zealand Women will be hosted by the Junction Oval in Melbourne.
The match starts at 10:20 AM local time (11:50 PM GMT – Prev Day) (5:20 AM IST).
The game will be live on Fox Sports in Australia.

Suggested Playing XI No.1 for Fantasy Cricket:
Keeper – Katey Martin
Batters – Meg Lanning, Racheal Haynes, Amy Satterthwaite (VC), Katie Perkins
All-Rounders – Ellyse Perry, Jess Jonassen (C), Sophie Devine
Bowlers – Megan Schutt, Georgia Wareham, Hayley Jensen

Keeper – Alyssa Healy
Batters – Racheal Haynes, Amy Satterthwaite, Suzie Bates, Katie Perkins
All-Rounders – Amelia Kerr (VC), Ellyse Perry, Jess Jonassen (C)
Bowlers – Megan Schutt, Lauren Cheatle, Anna Paterson
Suzie Bates’ recent ODI form doesn’t make her a direct selection that too at the cost of 9.5 credits. Leigh Kasperek, who was racing towards becoming the fastest Woman to 50 ODI wickets, picked only one wicket in the last four ODIs and got dropped.
Australia Women are expected to make it 3-0 despite a fight from the New Zealand Women.
