The White Ferns play Australia today in the third ODI of the Rose Bowl series at Mount Maunganui’s Bay Oval.
The White Ferns have been on the receiving end of two defeats in Mount Maunganui so far as their Trans-Tasman rivals secured the Rose Bowl this week.
Australia also secured the world record for an international cricket winning streak of 22 in the first ODI, extending that record to 23 with the series win on Wednesday night.
However, the mood in the White Ferns camp remains positive ahead of the third and final clash of the current series against the Australians.
“It’s exciting,” says all-rounder Melie Kerr. “Representing your country is always special. It would be great if we could take the series to be 2-1 and to take a game off of Australia.
“They are a quality side but we have competed really well and are making a lot of improvements so hopefully tomorrow we can put the complete performance together.”
The White Ferns v Australia third ODI will be held from 2pm – 10pm today, Saturday April 10 at Bay Oval, Blake Park. Entry is free.
