Australia Under 19 women’s team these days is in New Zealand for a 3 match ODI series followed by a single T20 match. Aussies will face their rivals in the 3rd ODI and would want to win the match as a consolation after losing two ODIs back to back.
Aussies have fallen short of victory in the second ODI game against the Kiwis. Although, a brilliant ton by Annabel Sutherland helped Aussies to hit the total of 248 runs at Bert Sutcliffe Oval after being dismissed by Jacinta Savage for 103. Later on, Australia lost 5-18 to be all out for 248 with three balls remaining. Aussies in their 2nd ODI were seen bouncing back impressively with two final over wickets to Charli Knott and three scalps to Hayley Silver Homes.
Talking about Kiwi’s chase, Lauren Down who smashed a winning century on Tuesday, noted 82 on the board to get the host close to Aussies total. Later, The middle order players, Kate Anderson and Jacinta Savage from New Zealand dug in their heels to contribute an important 57 runs partnership to cheer their two-wicket win. Needing seven runs in the last over, the Aussies captain gave the ball to Knott. Two final over wickets by Knott got much brighter signs for Aussies, but it was Skye Dowden maximum that made Aussies helpless.
The Aussies will enter the stadium with immense confidence in them and on the other side, hosts will be looking forward to registering a 3-0 win against Aussies.
