The Australian team leaves for New Zealand on Thursday to compete in what is being billed as the World Series of Women's Cricket. Australia's tour starts with a match against New Zealand A on Friday before the opening round of the WCWC against New Zealand on Sunday. The other participants, England and India, play their opening match on Monday. Each side will play the others twice before the final. Australia has an outstanding record in One-day cricket with 115 wins and 1 tie from 145 matches (79.7%. Against each country, Australia's record is equally outstandingNew Zealand: 42 wins from 62 matches (67.7%); England: 24 wins and 1 tie from 32 matches (76.6%); India: 11 wins from 12 matches versus India (91.7%). In fact, Australia hasn't lost to England since the '93 World Cup (a streak of 14 victories) and to India since 1995 (although it has only played India twice since then!) In comparison, New Zealand's One-day record stands at 85 wins and 2 ties from 148 matches (58.1%), England 78 wins and 2 ties from 145 matches(54.5%) and India 37 wins and 1 tie from 77 matches (48.7%). Ninety five players have represented Australia at One-day level - 3 players will be added to that list by the completion of the tour (Alex Blackwell, Kris Britt and Melissa Bulow). NB: 165 players have represented Australia at One-day and/or Test level. The longest serving player in the side is captain Belinda Clark with 82appearances after making her debut at Bellerive Oval in January 1991. Three other players in the side have played 60 or more matches Cathryn Fitzpatrick (61), Karen Rolton (60) and Julia Price (60). Since Clark assumed the role of captain in 1994, Australia has won 54 matches out of 65. Clark (3734) may well pass 4000 ODI runs (she may even catch the world's leading run scorer, Debbie Hockley on 4064) while the dynamic Rolton (1987) will pass 2000. Fitzpatrick (95) should become the first women to pass 100 ODI wickets while Rolton (48) should also pass 50 (the 7th Australian to do so).Courtesy: Women's Cricket UpdateCalver Bronwyn (Bronwyn.Calver@dotars.gov.au)
