Australia Women (AUS-W) will lock horns with Trans Tasman rivals New Zealand Women (NZ-W) in the third match of the Women's T20 World Cup 2023 at Boland Park in Paarl on Saturday (February 11). Australia, the current no.1 T20I team and the reigning champions, beat India 1-4 and Pakistan 0-2 in their last two T20I series as a part of their preparation for the mega tournament.

They beat India again in the first warm-up game while defending just 129 runs but suffered a shock three-wicket defeat against Ireland in the second warm-up clash despite scoring 168 runs.

New Zealand last played T20I cricket against Bangladesh in a three-match series at home in December 2022 when they won all three matches with impressive all-round performances. They also beat the West Indies recently but failed to repeat similar performances in the big tournaments during 2022. 

Suzie Bates, perhaps playing in her last T20 World Cup, has been in great form lately and her performances, alongside captain Sophie Devine and Amelia Kerr's, will be crucial for the White Ferns in this World Cup.

AUS-W vs NZ-W Pitch Report:

The pitch at Paarl's Boland Park offers a balanced surface. The average first innings score in Women's T20s at the venue is 155 with pacers getting a good amount of help in the recent games. Australia are likely to post a big total here if they bat first on Saturday but chasing will be easier for both teams in the evening games here.
