Australia v New Zealand predictions, best bets and tips, T20 World Cup Women’s betting
This is the WGL’s Australia v New Zealand betting tips and odds update for the T20 World Cup Women’s clash at Junction Oval, Melbourne, on Monday, March 2.
This Australia v New Zealand clash is a knockout match, with the winners heading into the semi-finals from Group A along with the unbeaten India.
For the losers the tournament is over, an unthinkable scenario for the home team who went into the ICC T20 Women’s World Cup as short-priced favourites.
Australian superstar Ellyse Perry is in doubt for the match, missing training a day out from the crucial clash with a hip complaint.
A call whether Perry, 29, plays be left as late as possible before the afternoon start time.
“I’m confident [she will play],” Australian captain Meg Lanning told AAP.
“She’s shown in the past that she’s extremely resilient and able to play through things. We will give her every chance to play but we won’t go making a call on that until [Monday] when she’s able to do something.”
Losing Perry would rob the Australians of one of the world best pace bowlers and all-rounders.
This NZ-Australia clash is the second match in a double-header following the Bangladesh-Sri Lanka clash, a match to decide which country in Group A goes home winless.
Remarkable this is the 40th T20 International between Australia and New Zealand and the record stands at 19 wins apiece, with one tie.
The Kiwis are easily the most successful team in head to head match-ups in T20 against Australia.

Australia v New Zealand betting tips
Sophie Devine player of the match at $10
If New Zealand can cause the upset, and there is a great chance they will given their record against Australia, Devine is the player most likely to step up. She is arguably the best players in the women’s game, though if she is not she is certainly in the top four. As an all-rounder Devine will have two opportunities to stake her claim for the award. Perry is the Australian player in the conversation for world’s best but she heads into this match under an injury cloud.
Beth Mooney top Australian run-scorer
Mooney is a class act at the crease and ran into some form with an unbeaten 81 against Bangladesh. She will open the innings and if things go to plan will be the mainstay while her opening partner Alyssa Healy blasts away early. Around $4 is available for Mooney to make the most runs for Australia.
Australia v New Zealand predictions – 2/3/2020
This should be a cracking game regardless of the outcome. You have two teams packed with some of the best women’s players on the planet lining up for a sudden-death contest. The bookies’ odds indicate Australia are good things but we cannot agree with that assessment. If the NZ big guns Devine and Suzie Bates set the tone there is every chance thy can kill the Australians’ chances. Good punting.
