New Zealand take ODI series 1-0 after yet another washout

No result – New Zealand 123 for 2 (Bates 51, Devine 42) vs Bangladesh

Suzie Bates and Sophie Devine helped New Zealand get off to a strong start in the third ODI in Hamilton before incessant rain forced another washout, after 26.5 overs of play. As a result, New Zealand took the series 1-0, having won the first ODI in Wellington and the second ODI also washed out.

New Zealand posted 123 for 2, thanks to quick starts from openers Bates and Devine. Devine raced to a 39-ball 42 which was laced with four fours, while Bates brought up an 80-ball 51 without a single boundary. Salma Khatun provided the breakthrough by removing Devine in the 16th over, while Ritu Moni struck in the 26th to dismiss Bates.

Amelia Kerr and Maddy Green were batting together when rain intervened at 3.45pm local time and caused a delay. The rain persisted and eventually led to the match being called off at 7.26pm local time.

Bates finished as the top run-scorer of the ODI series with 153 runs. Jess Kerr topped the bowling charts with five wickets across two innings.
After the two washouts, New Zealand are third on the ICC Women’s Championship table with three wins from six games and Bangladesh are third from the bottom.
