T20 World Cup 2021 is now at its last stop. After almost a month of adventure, the two teams have met in the form of Australia and New Zealand, who will take the field against each other on the night of 14 November to claim the trophy for the first time in the final. The Kangaroo team has entered the final by defeating invincible Pakistan in the tournament, while the Kiwi team has stepped into the final for the first time by defeating England, considered to be a strong contender for the title. On paper and in terms of performance, both the teams look very strong, but if quick cricket statistics are to be believed, then Aaron Finch could be seen lifting this trophy for the first time.
The teams of Australia and New Zealand have played against each other 14 times in T20 Internationals. Out of which 9 times the Kangaroo team has won, while the victory in only four has been in favor of the Kiwi team. Aaron Finch’s team has a win percentage of 64.28 against New Zealand. However, if we talk about the last five T20 matches, here Kane Williamson’s team has hit the ground in three and Australia has won two matches. Both the teams have shown a strong game in this tournament. Australia had made it to the semi-finals by defeating teams like South Africa, West Indies in the group stage. At the same time, New Zealand had also beaten Team India for all four.
New Zealand’s team has reached the final of the T20 World Cup for the first time. Kangaroo had earlier traveled to the final in the year 2010 as well, but at that time England had shattered the team’s dream. Under the captaincy of Kane Williamson, the Kiwi team has been successful in reaching the World Cup finals of all three formats in the last three years. Out of which the team won the World Test Championship title by defeating India in June this year. In such a situation, the team has a lot of experience in playing big matches like finals. At the same time, Australia has reached the final of any ICC event after a long time, so the team would not want to let this opportunity go by.
