The second ODI between the Australian Women and New Zealand Women takes place at the Allan Border Field on Monday.
The Aussies were clinical in the first game as the likes of Sophie Molineux and Georgia Wareham starred with the ball in hand. Meg Lanning and co will be looking for a series-clinching win on Monday although they will be wary of a wounded White Ferns side.
Led by star all-rounder Sophie Devine, they will hope for an improved batting performance with Amy Satterthwaite being crucial to their fortunes. With the likes of Amelia Kerr and Rosemary Mair also impressing in recent games, New Zealand will be optimistic of their chances, despite heading into this game as the underdogs. The White Ferns will, however, miss the presence of Suzie Bates, who has been ruled out for the rest of the series with injury.
Both sides are on the lookout for a crucial win in Brisbane, paving the way for a cracking encounter at the Allan Border Field. With some of the best players, such as Alyssa Healy and Lea Tahuhu taking it to the field, Dream11 enthusiasts are in for an absolute treat!

Date: 5th October 2020, at 5:40 AM IST

A competitive pitch awaits the two sides in Brisbane with the bowlers set to dominate proceedings yet again. The pacers should get extra swing and bounce off the surface early on after which the spinners should come into play in the middle overs.
Wickets in hand will be crucial to either side's fortunes with the batters having to bide their time in the middle before going big. Both teams would look to bat first upon winning the toss with 220 representing a par score at this venue.
