The Big PictureIt's been ten years since the New Zealand women pipped Australia to the post with a four-run win to get their first world title. The players have changed and so has the venue. But the Trans-Tasman rivalry hasn't.
They may not admit it, but the two teams will be at least slightly relieved that England were eliminated early in the competition by West Indies. New Zealand reached the finals of the previous two world tournaments - the 50-over World Cup in Australia and the World Twenty20 in England in 2009 - only to be comprehensively beaten by England. Australia's previous final appearance was in 2005 when they beat India to win the World Cup in Centurion.
