Rose Bowl, 2010/11-2011 - 2nd T20I

New Zealand Women v Australia Women

Australia Women won by 4 wickets (with 2 balls remaining)

Hello and a warm welcome to ESPNcricinfo's live coverage of the 2nd Twenty20 International in the Rose Bowl series between the New Zealand Women and the Australian Women at Saxton Oval in Nelson. Toss and team news shortly when we have it.

The good news is that New Zealand manager Christina Ryan has confirmed that the weather is great after torrential rain in the Nelson area over the last few days and the match will start on time. Great news after the 1st match in Hamilton was washed out without a ball bowled.
