Beth Mooney scored 70 not out from 49 balls at the top of the order in the last game. The opener is a strong choice for Australia Women’s highest run scorer against New Zealand Women. Alana King has figures of 4-8 and 1-10 from her last two games on this pitch. The spinner is our tip for Australia Women’s top wicket taker in this match.
Suzie Bates is the leading run scorer in the tournament and she is our pick for New Zealand Women’s highest run scorer in this game. With the ball, Hayley Jensen went wicketless against England Women but is the leading wicket taker for her side. She is well worth backing for New Zealand Women’s top wicket taker against Australia Women.
We recommend Suzie Bates to score over 21.5 runs in this game. She has been the most impressive batter so far in the competition.

AUS-W Team News
The pre-tournament favourites have had the luxury of picking an unchanged side for all three games so far in the competition and it would be a huge shock if any changes were made ahead of this match. Alongside England Women, the Australians have the greatest strength in depth across their whole team.
AUS-W Key Players
Beth Mooney- the 28 year old left-hander made 70 not out from 49 balls at Edgbaston against Pakistan Women. She averages 37.41 in this format.
Tahlia McGrath- with 78 not out from 51 balls, the all-rounder top scored for Australia Women in their last game. She is also their leading wicket taker in the tournament.
Alana King- the 26 year old leg-spinner did not pick up any wickets in the opening game against India Women but has been very impressive over the last month. The pitch continues to be responsive to spin bowling.
AUS-W Team Form
Australia Women continue to set the bar for performances in WT20Is. They have been very dominant in the games against Barbados Women and Pakistan Women.

NZ-W Team News
18 year old Fran Jonas retained her place in the White Ferns XI in spite of going wicketless against South Africa Women. She responded with the wicket of Danni Wyatt in the first over of England Women’s innings. The whole squad are fully fit and we expect no changes to the team.
NZ-W Key Players
Suzie Bates- the opener is averaging 65.50 in the 2022 Commonwealth Games and has hit the highest score in the tournament so far.
Sophie Devine- the captain has not gone past 48 with the bat in the competition but has been a consistent performer. She took 3-37 against South Africa Women in the opening match.
Hayley Jensen- the all-rounder has been New Zealand’s most penetrative bowler in the group stage. Australia Women’s top order have shown a weakness against the new ball and she could take advantage.
NZ-W Team Form
New Zealand Women were well beaten by England Women in their last game and must find their form from the opening matches if they are to cause Australia Women any problems.
NZ Women Predicted Playing 11
Sophie Devine (c), Suzie Bates, Amelia Kerr, Maddy Green, Brooke Halliday, Hayley Jensen, Lea Tahuhu, Hannah Rowe, Izzy Gaze (wk), Rosemary Mair, Fran Jonas

Who will win Australia vs New Zealand Women T20 Match?
Although Australia Women have only beaten New Zealand Women in one of the last four scheduled WT20Is. There are very few players, if any, for the White Ferns who would get into Australia Women’s XI.
With the most recent head to head fixtures in this format indicating an advantage for New Zealand Women, we could be in for a very close and exciting Friday night contest. However, we think that Australia Women are the best side in the tournament and are predicting another victory to maintain their 100% record in the competition.
Australia Women are favourites to beat New Zealand Women at odds of 1.20
