The 1st game of the 3-match One-Day series between Australia A Women and India A Women will be played at the Allan Border Field in Brisbane.
The match starts at 10:00 AM local time (12:00 AM GMT) (5:30 AM IST).
India A Women’s tour of Australia starts on Thursday where they play the Australia A Women in the first of the 3-match One-Day series which will be followed by a 3-match T20 series. India A Women players are in solid form having won everything they played in Bangladesh and Sri Lanka tours earlier this year. Veda Krishnamurthy, who had decent returns in the West Indies T20Is, will be leading the team.
Priya Punia and Shafali Verma are notable inclusions at the top. The home team have announced a strong squad which contains contenders for World Cup squad. The likes of Tahlia McGrath and Heather Graham are coming off good performances in the WBBL. Erin Burns and Bridget Patterson are also part of this squad.
Scattered thunderstorms and showers are expected at the Allan Border Field at regular intervals on Friday.
The Allan Border Field is a decent venue for batting when it comes to Women’s One-Day matches. During the recent Women’s ODI series between Australia and Sri Lanka, the hosts posted 280+ twice where they batted first. Sri Lanka batted first in the last game and got close to 200 with their skipper scoring a hundred.
Average 1st inning score: 253 (Women’s List A matches in 2019)
