New Zealand will face Australia tonight in the final match of the T20 World Cup 2021. In the semi-finals, the Kangaroo team entered the final for the second time after beating the tournament invincible Pakistan. At the same time, after defeating England, considered a strong contender for the title, the Kiwi team has reached the final with the intention of creating history. If you look at the statistics of quick cricket, Australia’s upper hand seems to be heavy, but the amount of cricket played by Kane Williamson’s team in this World Cup cannot be ignored. In such a situation, a fierce clash is expected between these two teams at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.
Strong Australia batting
The performance of Australia’s top-order batsmen was excellent, but the team’s lower order test against Pakistan in the semi-finals. Where Matthew Wade and Marcus Stoinis showed their ability very well. David Warner’s bat is continuously getting runs and in the final, the team will definitely expect a stormy batting from Captain Finch. Mitchell Marsh has been effective at the number three position, while Glenn Maxwell’s bat is yet to see that big innings. Against the Kiwis, Wade and Stoinis would definitely like to show their stamina once again when given the opportunity.
Hazlewood was beaten up a lot
Josh Hazlewood scored a lot of runs against Pakistan. Kangaroo fast bowler had spent 49 runs in his four overs. However, considering the performance of the entire tournament, Finch would like to keep Hazlewood in the playing XI. Mitchell Starc had lost his momentum after bowling two overs in the last match, but in this World Cup, he has been the fast bowler with the team’s highest wicket. Captain Finch will once again expect economical bowling from Pat Cummins. In the spin department, Adam Zampa has done wonders with his spinning balls and has taken 12 wickets in 6 matches.
Australia Probable Playing XI: David Warner, Aaron Finch (c), Mitchell Marsh, Steve Smith, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Matthew Wade, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Adam Zampa, Josh Hazlewood.
