Despite having beaten New Zealand in their recent series on home soil, Australia won't be taking them lightly when they face off tomorrow at the World T20.
Australia defeated the White Ferns comfortably in all three of their T20I matches in September and October. However, playing them in Guyana could be much different.
"We don't want to get too far ahead of ourselves but I supposed we played them in Australia not long ago and we were in our home conditions and knew how to play that," bowler Sophie Molineux said.
"We have to take these conditions into account.
"They have some strong players so we have to be on our game and hopefully we go in and play like we have been," she said.
New Zealand boasts the world’s top-ranked T20I batter in Suzie Bates, who has been averaging 60 runs this year.
The Kiwi's will be looking to get a result against the Aussies after going down to India by 34 runs in their opening match of the World T20.
For Australia, there is a semi-final spot on the line if they do get the win against New Zealand, having got results in their matches against Ireland and Pakistan.
"It's a massive incentive," Molineux said.
"We are taking each game as it comes and we don't want to look too far ahead of ourselves.
"Having the opportunity to play in a World Cup semi-final really excites me and I'm sure it excites everyone else so we are really pumped," she said.
Australia faces New Zealand begins at 8 pm local time Tuesday (11 am Wednesday AEDT).
