New Zealand have won the toss and they’re bowling first

After Australia easily accounted for New Zealand in the first two T20s of this series, the focus was more on the visitors than the world champions. How can a team with so many talented individual players, who perform so well in the Women’s Big Bash year after year, have such a dreadful short-form record against their old rivals?

In this third and final T20, the White Ferns have the chance to break the cycle and they will need to – after this come three one-day internationals, starting later in the week, where the teams will play off for the Rose Bowl. So let’s hope they can show up and play their best cricket today and we have a top contest ahead of us.

I’ll be back with you in a few minutes with the toss and teams from Allan Border Field in Brisbane. They are playing on the same pitch as the two games on the weekend, so the working assumption is that the conditions will again favour spinners and bowlers who can take pace off. Drop me a line, how are you seeing it?

Nothing better than hearing this played at a T20 played in New Zealand.
