NZ-W vs AU-W Risky Captaincy Choices:
Lauren Down scored 90 runs in her last match. She generally opens the batting for New Zealand and has scored 165 runs in 11 innings. As she isn’t consistent, she can be a risky option to lead your Dream11 team.
Rachael Haynes has scored 1850 runs in 61 matches at an average of 36.27. She hasn’t been in fine touch in recent times and could be a risky choice to captain your team.
Player you should avoid:
New Zeland Women’s team bowler Rosemary Mair has only picked up four wickets in nine matches since her debut. Taking her lack of form into consideration, you should avoid her in your Dream11 team.
