New Zealand vs Australia Match Prediction & Preview


The final of the 2021 T20 World Cup is set to be between the two Trans-Tasman nations, New Zealand, and Australia.

Gary Stead’s outfit pulled off a courageous upset despite the odds being against them, defeating the favourites of the tournament by five wickets with an over to spare.

The crucial partnership between Daryl Mitchell (72*) and Devon Conway (46) pulled the Kiwis over the line. They haven’t had to rely on a particular player this tournament, and that’s the sign of a strong team that is capable of something special in this tournament. This will be New Zealand’s first final appearance in any T20 World Cup.

Meanwhile, Australia pulled off an incredible run chase in a nail-biting contest against a brave and optimistic Pakistan side. Matthew Wade and Marcus Stoinis became clutch for the Aussies when they needed in the dying stages of the run chase. After being dropped in the outfield, Wade smashed three monster sixes to ensure his nation play in the final on Sunday.

After seeing how the pitch at Dubai International Stadium plays throughout this tournament, it will be crucial that the wrist spinners for both nations bowl on the money. Adam Zampa and Ish Sodhi have combined for 21 wickets so far in this tournament and could lead their respective nations to glory.

Both sides managed to reach the final of the tournament despite finishing second in their group stage matches. Australia will know the conditions best after playing their semi-final at Dubai International Stadium, and I believe they will win their first-ever T20 World Cup.
