Australia and New Zealand both have many similarities between the teams and both have a habit of playing on fast pitches but the way they have molded themselves on the slow pitches of UAE is excellent. In such a situation, in the title match to be held at the International Cricket Stadium in Dubai on Sunday, both the teams will be in the eyes of the world.
Stoinis vs Neesham
His all-rounder played an important role in taking Australia and New Zealand to the finals. Marcus Stoinis for Australia and Jimmy Neesham played important innings for New Zealand. From both the players, their team will be expected to perform similarly once again.
Warner and Williamson in charge
Australian opener David Warner has been in excellent form. He played match-winning innings while batting brilliantly in this T20 World Cup. Before the World Cup, there was a lot of criticism about Warner’s form but he silenced everyone with his performance. Now if her bat plays in the final too, then she will become the champion for Australia for the first time. On the other hand, from New Zealand, captain Kane Williamson will once again be in charge. Williamson has on several occasions pulled his team out of difficult situations. He is an expert in batting by ticking and slowly progresses the innings. In such a situation, his batting becomes important for the victory of the team.
Zampa Vs Sodhi
The role of spinners of both the teams will be important in this match. While Adam Zampa can spoil the game for Australia, New Zealand’s hopes will be from Ish Sodhi. Both the spinners have done exceptionally well for their teams in this tournament.
Kiwis bowling attack in front of Australian batting
Australia have extra batting depth, while New Zealand have a better bowling attack, which has been the most economical of the tournament. Usually, a T20 team that has depth in the batting makes a good counter attack. But it has been the lowest-scoring T20 World Cup, which gives a lot of opportunities to the strong bowling teams.
