Australian Women are set to host the White Ferns for the third ODI at Junction Oval, Melbourne. Having sealed the series in the second ODI, Australia would be eyeing for a whitewash in this three-match ODI series. However, the visitors would be hoping to end this series on a winning note. Both the teams are ready to battle it out for one last time in the final ODI.
The hosts have been in quite a sensational form throughout this series against their neighbor rivals. After winning the first ODI by 5 runs, Australian team emerged victorious in second ODI by 95 runs to take an unassailable lead of 2-0. The current ODI world champions turned out to be too good for their opponents in this ODI series. Team management can look to make a few changes ahead of the third ODI as they have already clinched the series.
On the contrary, New Zealand is struggling to find its feet in the ODI format. After losing the home series against India Women, the White Ferns had a point to prove in this ODI series. But they have failed yet again against a much stronger opponent, showing that they need to improve in this format of the game. Having lost the ODI series already, the visitors would be hoping to bounce back in the final ODI to end this forgettable series on a high.
