T20 World Cup Final || Confrontation Between The Kangaroos And The Kiwis: Who Has The Best Chance Of Becoming A World Champion?

The teams of New Zealand and Australia are ready to fight for the final of the T20 World Cup in Dubai. Both teams that reached the final were not declared favorites for the World Cup. However, he played standard cricket and eventually made it to the finals.

New Zealand and Australia beat England and Pakistan in the semi-finals to reach the final of the T20 World Cup 2021.

Both teams in the final have so far failed to win the T20 World Cup. Australia reached the final in 2010 and came very close to winning but lost the title. So after the final, a new name will be added to the list of winning teams of T20 World Cup.

Australian players who could be dangerous against New Zealand

The performance of Australian captain Aaron Finch in the matches played between New Zealand and Australia is significant. Finch has scored 251 runs in T20 matches against New Zealand with an average of 62.75 and a strike rate of 144.25.

Finch, who played in seven matches between the two teams, also scored two half-centuries against New Zealand. Just knowing how dangerous Finch can be for New Zealand is enough to know that he has hit 22 fours and 11 sixes against the Kiwis.

Kangaroos' Glenn Maxwell (206 for 9 innings at a strike rate of 157.25) and David Warner (158 for 7 innings at a strike rate of 156.43) have done well against the Kiwis.

Among the bowlers, Ashton Eger's figures give a good reason for his selection. He has taken the most 13 wickets against New Zealand. He also took 6 wickets for 30 runs in just one match which is his best bowling.

Interestingly, Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins and Josh Hazelwood are set to play their first T20 match against the Kiwis.

New Zealand players who could be dangerous against Australia

As for the Black Caps, Martin Guptill has played in 12 of the 14 matches played between the two teams. He has scored 435 runs in 12 innings with an average of 36.25 and a strike rate of 152.09.

Guptill has also scored two half-centuries and a century against Australia. However, in a match played at Auckland in 2017, his 105 off 54 balls was in vain when Australia had already achieved the target of 244 for the loss of 5 wickets with 7 balls to spare.

New Zealand's Ash Sodhi has been the most successful bowler in taking wickets against Australia. He has taken 16 wickets at an average of 15.68 in 9 matches but he has allowed the batsmen to score 7.38 runs in each over.

Trent Bolt also took 10 wickets with an average of 22.70 and an economy of 7.78 while Mitchell Sentner and Tim Southee have taken 9 wickets each. Jimmy Neesham has proved to be quite expensive against Australia, as he has so far taken only 2 wickets with an average of 39.50 and an economy of 13.16.
