Anisa Mohammed, the stand-in captain as Stafanie Taylor has been ruled out of the series owing to injury, won the toss and elected to bat first. Once again, the runs were hard to come as Hayley Matthews and Stacy-Ann King opened the batting. King was the first to go for seven, followed by Shemaine Campbelle for a four-ball zero.
