White Ferns confident of making history against the Australians

8:49 am on 1 February 2009

The New Zealand women's cricket team is in a run-scoring mood as they look to wrest the Rosebowl from Australia's grasp for the first time in nearly a decade.

The series takes place in New Zealand with the first of five one-dayers to be played in Whangarei on Sunday.

The New Zealand coach Gary Stead admits the White Ferns have previously struggled against the Australians but says the past counts for little...

Stead says winning the Rosebowl would give the White Ferns a psychological edge over the Australians when they meet in the first game of the world cup in Sydney in March.
