New Zealand continues the winning form and started the series with a win. After brilliant performances by Bates, Satterthwaite, Tahuhu and Huddleston New Zealand registered a win by 5 wickets.
Mooney’s century went in vain, Haynes and Villani fifty could not do much to save the game. Except couple of wickets by Wellington with decent economy none of the Australian bowlers did anything different to save the game.
With Ellyse Perry back in the side, Cheatle most likely to make the way. Alex Blackwell is expected to play and Haynes has to leave and make way for her.
Possible Lineup 1: Priest (wk), Villani, Mooney, Perkins, Bates, Satterthwaite, Perry, Tahuhu, Huddleston, Schutt, Wellignton
Possible Lineup 2: Priest (wk), Bolton, Lanning, Perkins, Bates, Satterthwaite, Jonassen, Tahuhu, Huddleston, Schutt, Wellignton
