The 3rd and last 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 started off on a good note with Shafali Verma and Veda Krishnamurthy starring in the first game with centuries. Their batting efforts helped India to post 312/9 in 50 overs and win the game by 16 runs. The Australia A Women bounced back strongly as Georgia Redmayne and Erin Burns struck tons in the 2nd One-Dayer. The visiting side were bowled out for 234 in reply to Australia’s 315/5. Priya Punia’s 127-ball 112 was not enough as they collapsed from 205/2 in 36th over to 234/10 in 44.1 overs. The decider game of this 3-match One-Day series will be played on Monday.
The Allan Border Field will be under clear skies and pleasant weather on Monday during the match timings.
The Allan Border Field has producing batting tracks in the first two matches of this series. It was no different during the Women’s ODI series between Australia and Sri Lanka. The hosts recorded 280+ in first two ODI where they batted first. Later in the 3rd ODI, Sri Lanka batted first and got close to 200. Chamari Atapattu scored hundred showing how good the track was.
Average 1st inning score: 277 (Women’s List A matches in 2019)

Georgia Redmayne has been scoring good runs in the WNCL over the last three editions. She scored a century in the 2nd One-Day proving her mettle in this format. Devika Vaidya has done a decent job in this series taking six wickets but has to score runs as well. Shafali Verma continued her T20I exploits in this tour with quick-fire knocks. Bridget Patterson scored 70+ in both innings of the WNCL 2019/20 but is due a big knock in this series.
