New Zealand XI
New Zealand win the toss and elect to FIELD
Hello everybody and welcome to live over-by-over coverage of the third and final one-day international of the series between Australia and New Zealand from Brisbane. Play gets underway at 10.10am local, 11.10am AEDT.
With Australia enjoying an unassailable 2-0 lead, and no serious questions over form or fitness to be answered, today is all about history. After 20 straight victories, one more for Australia’s women will draw them level with the record winning streak in ODI history, bringing them alongside Ricky Ponting’s formidable men’s outfit from earlier this century.
Despite major issues off-field, it has been a superb start to the summer for Australian cricket on it with the women’s team brushing off the absence of Ellyse Perry to dominate the White Ferns in 20-over and now 50-over cricket. Batters have made runs, bowlers have taken wickets, experienced campaigners have led, and the next generation have stepped up tot he plate. All that remains is one final record breaking full stop to cap it all off.
