AUS-W vs NZ-W Dream11 Prediction for CWG Women’s 2nd Semi-Final Match
Match: AUS-W vs NZ-W T20 Match Prediction
Time: 06 Aug, 10:30 PM (IST)
Series: CWG Women’s 2nd Semi-Final
Venue: Edgbaston Cricket Ground – Edgbaston, England
AUS-W vs NZ-W Info:
- Beth Mooney scored 70 not out from 49 balls at the top of the order in the last game. The opener is a strong choice for Australia Women’s highest run scorer against New Zealand Women. Alana King has figures of 4-8 and 1-10 from her last two games on this pitch. The spinner is our tip for Australia Women’s top wicket taker in this match.
- Suzie Bates is the leading run scorer in the tournament and she is our pick for New Zealand Women’s highest run scorer in this game. With the ball, Hayley Jensen went wicketless against England Women but is the leading wicket taker for her side. She is well worth backing for New Zealand Women’s top wicket taker against Australia Women.
- We recommend Suzie Bates to score over 21.5 runs in this game. She has been the most impressive batter so far in the competition.
AUS-W vs NZ-W Live Streaming:
TV channels: This match will be shown live on BBC One and BBC Two.
Live Streaming: Fans can stream the match on the BBC iPlayer and Sony Liv App.
Weather & Pitch Report:
Partly cloudy and not too humid throughout this semi-final. The temperature will drop from 22 degrees at the start of the game to 18 degrees by the end.
As we have seen throughout the competition, there will be something in the pitch for all types of bowlers. The shortened boundaries should see a par score of over 155.
Both captains chose to bat first in their last games but Australia Women elected to field first in their last day-night WT20I. We predict that New Zealand Women will bat first irrespective of which skipper calls correctly.

AUS-W vs NZ-W Team News:
AUS-W Team News:
The pre-tournament favourites have had the luxury of picking an unchanged side for all three games so far in the competition and it would be a huge shock if any changes were made ahead of this match. Alongside England Women, the Australians have the greatest strength in depth across their whole team.
NZ-W Team News:
18 year old Fran Jonas retained her place in the White Ferns XI in spite of going wicketless against South Africa Women. She responded with the wicket of Danni Wyatt in the first over of England Women’s innings. The whole squad are fully fit and we expect no changes to the team.

With the most recent head to head fixtures in this format indicating an advantage for New Zealand Women, we could be in for a very close and exciting Friday night contest. However, we think that Australia Women are the best side in the tournament and are predicting another victory to maintain their 100% record in the competition.
Australia Women are favourites to beat New Zealand Women
AUS-W Key Players:
the 28 year old left-hander made 70 not out from 49 balls at Edgbaston against Pakistan Women. She averages 37.41 in this format.
with 78 not out from 51 balls, the all-rounder top scored for Australia Women in their last game. She is also their leading wicket taker in the tournament.
the 26 year old leg-spinner did not pick up any wickets in the opening game against India Women but has been very impressive over the last month. The pitch continues to be responsive to spin bowling.
NZ-W Key Players:
the opener is averaging 65.50 in the 2022 Commonwealth Games and has hit the highest score in the tournament so far.
the captain has not gone past 48 with the bat in the competition but has been a consistent performer. She took 3-37 against South Africa Women in the opening match.
the all-rounder has been New Zealand’s most penetrative bowler in the group stage. Australia Women’s top order have shown a weakness against the new ball and she could take advantage.
