Bangladesh unchanged in 43-overs-a-side contest, the first-ever ODI between the two sides
Toss Australia Women chose to bowl vs Bangladesh Women
Australia have won all their six matches so far and were the first team to qualify for the semi-finals. Bangladesh are mathematically alive in the race to the knockouts but with only one win in five games and an inferior run-rate than teams with more wins, they are unlikely to make the semi-finals even if they beat Australia on Friday and England on Sunday.
The playing conditions of the rain-affected game in Wellington permit only a nine-over powerplay per side, with three bowlers allowed to deliver nine overs each and two bowlers eight overs apiece.
Bangladesh: Murshida Khatun, Sharmin Akhter, Fargana Hoque, Nigar Sultana (wk/capt), Rumana Ahmed, Lata Mondal, Salma Khatun, Ritu Moni, Fahima Khatun, Nahida Akter, Jahanara Alam
Australia: Rachael Haynes, Alyssa Healy (wk), Meg Lanning (capt), Beth Mooney, Tahlia McGrath, Ashleigh Gardner, Annabel Sutherland, Jess Jonassen, Alana King, Megan Schutt, Darcie Brown
