Australia Netball team who is the champions of 1963, 1971, 1975, 1979, 1983, 1991, 1995, 1999, 2007, 2011, 2015 tournament and looking to starts the similar way in the 2019 NWC opener. If we look at the past performance of diamond then Australia is very disappointing with the silver medal in the 2018 commonwealth games so they are looking to gold medal here in NWC 2019.
Form of Captain Caitlin Bassett surely to be a worrying factor for the diamonds. Total nine players are making their world debut this time in 2019 world cup for Australia team but all the 12 players who are competing in the world’s premier domestic competition so this surely be a good advantage for her.
If we look at the Squad of Australia netball team then Liz Watson is the key players of the side. Coach of the Side Lisa Alexander surely looking to better starts of the competition with winning note.
On the other side In the comparatively lowest side of Northern Ireland as the team only managed to best of Netball world cup in 1983 with 7th position finish.
Australia’s Player Dan Ryan who has been recently appointed as the head coach of the team. Caroline O’Hanlon is the captaining of the Northern Ireland netball team. Fionnuala Toner is a tough and versatile defender who can swing between wing defense and goal defense and she surely be a key factor for today’s match.
