New Delhi. The final of the ICC T20 World Cup 2021 will be played between Australia and New Zealand (New Zealand vs Australia). Both the teams will try to win their first title. At the beginning of the tournament, Australia and New Zealand (AUS vs NZ) were not considered as the title contenders but both the teams surprised everyone with their performance. Australia defeated Pakistan in the semi-finals while New Zealand defeated England in a thrilling match. The world is going to get a new T20 world champion in a few hours and BCCI President Sourav Ganguly has placed his bet on the Kiwi team.
During a public event in Sharjah, the former Indian captain said, “I think it is time for New Zealand in the world of sports. Australia is a great country but they have to face difficulties. Even though Australia has been very good in terms of cricket but New Zealand has more guts and abilities, which is visible on TV. He has won the World Test Championship title a few months back. It is a small country but they have a lot of talent. I feel like it is New Zealand time now.”
Ganguly also commented on India’s unsuccessful campaign in the T20 World Cup. He said, “The Indian team led by Virat Kohli got out due to some bad matches, but India will come back strongly in the upcoming series. The expectations were undoubtedly high but it is heartening that despite the disappointment, people have accepted the result. He was upset, but he didn’t over react.”
Ganguly said, “After all, Bumrah, Shami, Rohit and Kohli are all human beings. It was just two bad matches. Those were 40 overs of bad cricket. They will come back and within a year we will see these same boys lifting trophies.” Let us tell you that in the year 2022, the T20 World Cup is to be held in Australia.
