Aus Women vs NZ Women, 3rd ODI: Dream11 Prediction, Playing XI Updates & Fantasy Cricket Tips - March 3rd, 2019
In what was supposed to be an evenly matched series between Australia and New Zealand, the Aussies have outplayed their opponents and have wrapped up the series with a clean sweep firmly in their thoughts with the third ODI set to take place at the Junction Oval on Sunday. Ellyse Perry was at her best in the second ODI as she guided Australia to a winning total while none of the Kiwis were able to get themselves in.
With the current points system prevalent in Women's cricket, no match is a dead-rubber, which directs to another cliff-hanger on Sunday.
Squads to choose from
Georgia Wareham, Elyse Villani, Megan Schutt, Ellyse Perry, Beth Mooney, Delissa Kimmince, Jess Jonassen, Alyssa Healy, Ashleigh Gardner, Lauren Cheatle, Rachael Haynes, Meg Lanning
New Zealand Women
Leigh Kasperek, Amy Satterthwaite, Suzie Bates, Maddy Green, Hayley Jensen, Lauren Down, Sophie Devine, Amelia Kerr, Rosemary Mair, Katey Martin, Katie Perkins, Anna Peterson, Hannah Rowe, Lea Tahuhu
Playing XI Updates
Ellyse Perry was at her scintillating best as she scored 107 runs while propelling Australia to a match-winning total. She will once again be key to what should be an unchanged side with the likes of Megan Schutt and Jess Jonassen in pristine form. Meg Lanning and Alyssa Healy are yet to get going and with this being the final encounter of the series, one can expect them to come to the party as well against the Kiwis.
Possible XI: Haynes, Healy(WK), Lanning(C), Perry, Mooney, Villani, Gardner, Jonassen, Kimmince, Wareham and Schutt.
New Zealand Women
Lauren Down is set to be dropped after a string of failures in the top order with Maddy Green available to play instead of her. Much is expected of Bates and Devine up top, who are key to the Kiwis' fortunes while the bowling needs to close out the death overs effectively, which has been their undoing on both occasions.
Possible XI: Bates, Devine, Down/Green, Satterthwaite (WK), Perkins, Martin, Kerr, Kasperek, Jensen, Tahuhu, and Mair

Wicket-keeper: Alyssa Healy missed out in the previous matches but she should be the ideal option to go by in your fantasy side. Healy has been in brilliant form for Australia over the past year or so and should come up with a good performance on Sunday.
Batsmen: Suzie Bates is New Zealand's best chance of getting to a respectable score and should be backed to overcome her bad run with a good performance while the likes of Meg Lanning and Any Sattherthwaite pick themselves in the fantasy team. Rachael Haynes is also a good option to have in the side with Katie Perkins also available to slot in for either of the quartet.
All-rounders: Ashleigh Gardner is preferred over Ellyse Perry with her abilities sure to play a part on Sunday while Sophie Devine and Jess Jonassen are must have players in the fantasy team. Jonassen picked up a fifer in the previous ODI, which holds her in high regards when it comes to the fantasy contest.
Bowlers: Megan Schutt, Rosemary Mair and Leigh Kasperek are the ideal set of players to have in the side with the likes of Kimmince and Hannah Rowe also available in case of a different set of players are desired. Schutt and Mair have been impressive with their ability with the new ball and should pick a wicket or two in Melbourne.
Captain: Alyssa Healy and Meg Lanning are due for a big innings and are the prime candidates to fill in as captain. The other options include Sophie Devine and the in-form, Ellyse Perry with their all-round abilities sure to come into play in the last and final ODI.
