Australia vs New Zealand Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


Australia and New Zealand clash at the Junction Oval in Melbourne on Monday, with a spot in the 2020 Women’s T20 World Cup semi-finals up for grabs.

Both sides have won 2 matches at the tournament, while their only defeats have come against the rampant Indians.

Australia’s Alyssa Healy has scored two fine half-centuries at the tournament, while New Zealand’s Sophie Devine is on a brilliant run of form with the bat.

Australia Form & News


Australia go into the clash after thrashing Bangladesh by 86-runs at the Manuka Oval in Canberra on Friday.

Alyssa Healy was brilliant with the bat for Australia, notching 83 runs off 53 balls. That was her second half-century of the tournament after scoring 51 against India in the opening game of the World Cup.

In her last 10 T20 innings, Healy is averaging 35.33 with the bat, while her strike rate sits at a jaw-dropping 170.96 in that period.

A win guarantees Australia a place in the semi-final, where they will meet either South Africa or England.

New Zealand Form & News


New Zealand can count themselves very lucky to still be in with a shout of making the 2020 Women’s T20 World Cup semi-finals.

In their last match, Bangladesh bowled New Zealand out for a paltry 91, but an incredible spell of bowling from Hayley Jensen, who took 3 wickets for 11 runs in her 4 overs, saw Bangladesh crumble to 74 all out at the Junction Oval in Melbourne on Saturday.

That poor performance with the bat will be a worry going into the clash with Australia, as the host nation has a formidable bowling attack.

A spark of hope could come in the shape of New Zealand batswoman Sophie Devine. Devine has scored 489 runs in her last 9 T20 matches at an average of 69.85. New Zealand’s hopes will firmly fall on Devine’s shoulders while at the crease.

Australia vs New Zealand Head to Head


Australia have got the better of New Zealand in 4 of the last 5 matches between the sides. The last T20 encounter between Australia and New Zealand came at the 2018 Women’s T20 World Cup. Australia made light work of the neighbours, winning by 33 runs after posting 153/7 at the Providence Stadium in Guyana.

Australia vs New Zealand Betting Odds


Australia are the favourites to win the match at $1.25, while New Zealand are priced at $4.00. Australia’s Alyssa Healy is priced at $3.75 to top score for her side again, while New Zealand’s star batswoman Sophie Devine is available at $2.30 to do the same. For Healy to outscore Devine on the day, you can get odds of $2.00.

Australia vs New Zealand Match Up


New Zealand struggled with the bat against Bangladesh in their last match, posting just 91. Australia would have seen how their neighbours misfired against accurate medium-pace bowling, so they are likely to try and sacrifice pace for more accuracy when New Zealand are at the crease.

  • New Zealand’s Sophie Devine averages 69.85 with the bat in her last 10 T20 innings
