Australia Women (AUS-W) will be clashing against rivals New Zealand Women (NZ-W) in the 2nd semi-final clash of the 2022 Commonwealth Games at Edgbaston in Birmingham on Saturday. Australia Women made it three wins in three matches at CWG with a big victory against Pakistan in the last fixture. The in-form all-rounder Tahlia Macgrath smashed an unbeaten fifty and then took three wickets to guide her team to the semi-final round.
New Zealand Women lost the last Group A match against hosts England by seven wickets after scoring only 71 runs while batting first. Star batter Suzie Bates is leading the scoring charts in this tournament and but other players need to skill up their game against mighty Australia.
Here are the top 3 captain or vice-captain picks in AUS-W vs NZ-W Dream11 Fantasy Cricket team:
1. Beth Mooney:
The veteran Australian batter struggled to score big in the opening two matches against India and Barbados with just 12 runs. But she smashed unbeaten 70 runs off 49 balls with the help of eight fours and one six. This is her first fifty in the last five T20I matches and she will be a perfect choice to captain your fantasy team on Saturday. Her return to form further boosts Australia’s morale, who are favorite to win Gold in the 2022 Commonwealth Games. Mooney has scored 1796 runs in 68 matches at an average of 37.41 and a strike rate of 122.42.
2. Tahlia McGrath:
The star all-rounder continues her red-hot form with another match-winning knock in the last match. She scored the highest unbeaten 78 runs off just 51 balls at an impressive strike rate of 152.9 against Pakistan. And then went on to take three wickets while conceding just 13 runs in her three-over spell. Now she is leading the both most runs and most wickets chart for Australia and is in contention to finish this tournament as the leading run-scorer or wicket-taker or both.
3. Suzie Bates:
The Kiwi opening batter smashed 91 runs off 64 balls in the opening clash against South Africa and she is leading the scoring charts in this tournament since then. She also played a crucial 34-run knock against Sri Lanka but managed to score only six runs in the last match against England Women. Bates will be a safe captaincy choice if you are betting on New Zealand winning against Australia on Saturday. Both Amelia Kerr and Sophie Devine need to contribute more and form partnerships with Bates if New Zealand hope to reach the finals.
