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.

The hosts have been in quite sensational form throughout this series against their neighbors. After winning the first ODI by 5 runs, the Australian team emerged victorious in the second ODI by a whopping 95 runs to take an unassailable lead of 2-0.

The current ODI world champions have turned out to be too good for their opponents in this ODI series. The team management will probably look to make a few changes ahead of the third ODI as they have already clinched the series.

On the contrary, New Zealand are struggling to find their feet in the ODI format. After losing the home series against India Women, the White Ferns had a point to prove in this 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.
