Australian women's cricket team in New Zealand in 2016–17

The Australia women's national cricket team toured New Zealand in the last week of February 2017.[1] The tour took place immediately after the completion of the Australia-New Zealand WT20I series in Australia. The two teams competed in a series of three Women's One Day International cricket (WODIs) for the Rose Bowl.[2] Australia women won the series 2–1.[3]

Squads

 New Zealand[4] Australia[5]

Ahead of the tour, Sophie Devine was ruled out of New Zealand's squad due to injury and was replaced by Samantha Curtis.[6] Leigh Kasperek was ruled out of the series after an injury in the first Women's Twenty20 International match against Australia in Australia earlier in the month. She was replaced by Amelia Kerr.[7] Maddy Green was also ruled out of the New Zealand squad due to injury.[8] Meanwhile, Rachael Haynes was added to Australia's squad as cover for Alex Blackwell, who has a minor hamstring strain, but is not expected to miss the series.[8]
