Led by captain Meg Lanning, Australia will be looking to continue their recent good form in ODIs as they battle New Zealand in a three-match series to be played in Perth, Adelaide and Melbourne. Having not played a limited-overs match since October last year, they’ll be looking to rediscover the form that’s seen them win their last six matches in the format.
Meanwhile, New Zealand enter this series on the back of a 2-1 ODI series loss to India earlier this month. The likes of captain Amy Satterthwaite, Suzie Bates and Sophie Devine have all plyed their trade alongside Australia’s star players in the recently-completed WBBL tournament.
Make sure you tune in from 1pm AEDT on Friday afternoon to hear all the action as Macquarie Sports Radio’s summer of cricket continues.
