The most important group stage match of the Women's T20 World Cup 2020 will feature a clash between Trans-Tasman rivals Australia Women and New Zealand Women. Both the teams have won their matches against Bangladesh Women and Sri Lanka Women while India Women have defeated both the sides.
This will be a virtual quarterfinal match as only the winning team will join the Harmanpreet Kaur-led outfit in the next round. Australia Women have suffered a massive blow as their star player Ellyse Perry might not get fit in time to play this match. In that case, they will have to tinker their playing XI.
Alyssa Healy has impressed a lot for Australia Women while Jess Jonassen has backed her up with the ball. The home team will look to win the match against New Zealand Women so as to avoid an embarrassing first-round exit in the Women's T20 World Cup 2020.
