The 3rd and final match of the 3-match T20I series between New Zealand Women and Australia Women will be played on 1st April at Eden Park in Auckland.
The match is scheduled to start at 3:00 PM local time and 7:30 AM IST and it will be streamed live on Fancode.
New Zealand Women will be up against the Australia Women in the 3rd and final match of the 3-match T20I Thursday. New Zealand Women held their nerves in the last match and won the match in the final ball of the game to level the series 1-1. Maddy Green smashed a boundary on the final ball and lead her team to a 4-wicket victory and also kept the 3-match series alive. They will be looking forward to continuing their winning momentum in this upcoming match as well.
On the other hand, Australia Women will be very disappointed with themselves. They had a very good chance of winning the last match but Nicola Carey couldn’t defend 3 runs in the final ball. Both the teams are very competitive and whoever handles the pressure will take the series. It will be interesting to see who will have the upper hand between these two quality sides in the series decider on Thursday.
