T20 World Cup final australia vs new zealand Tim Seifert Set For Return After Devon Conway Freak Injury

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. Before the final, however, the Kiwi team has suffered a tremendous setback. The team’s star wicket-keeper batsman Devon Conway will not play. Conway played a key role in helping the team win the first semi-final against England. He did the work of rescuing the team stuck in trouble by playing an innings of 46 runs. However, after being dismissed, Conway himself in despair hit his right hand on the bat, due to which his arm was broken. Tim Seifert will now play the final in place of the injured Conway. Siffert plays for Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in IPL.

The 26-year-old Siffert is one of the explosive batsmen of the Kiwi team. The strike rate of this batsman is above 120 in both ODI and T20. Siffert, a right-handed batsman, has scored 703 runs in 36 T20 Internationals at a strike rate of 132. He also has five half-centuries to his name. His highest score is an unbeaten 84 which he made against Pakistan. Siffert usually opens but in the final match he can bat at number four.

Despite the injury, Devon Conway is completely stuck with the team. The New Zealand Cricket Board shared a video in which Conway is making fellow player Seifert practice wicketkeeping.

The teams are as follows:

Australia : Aaron Finch (c), Ashton Agar, Pat Cummins, Josh Hazlewood, Josh Inglis, Mitchell Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Kane Richardson, Steve Smith, Mitchell Starc, Marcus Stoinis, Mitchell Swepson, Matthew Wade (wk), David Warner, Adam Jumpa.

New Zealand : Kane Williamson (c), Todd Astle, Trent Boult, Mark Chapman, Adam Milne, Martin Guptill, Kyle Jameson, Daryl Mitchell, Jimmy Neesham, Glenn Phillips, Mitchell Santner, Tim Seifert (wk), Ish Sodhi, Tim Southee.
