There will be a T20 International series of only 1 match between Australia and New Zealand at Sydney Cricket Ground, Sydney on February 2, Tuesday. Kane Williamson will be the captain of visiting team New Zealand and Aaron Finch will lead the Australian team.
This will be the last match of New Zealand’s tour of Australia series. Both teams have good and explosive T20 batsmen with good experience of playing T20 cricket. High scoring game is expected from both sides. Colin Munro will have to play good cricket for New Zealand to give team a good and solid start along with Martin Guptill. The kiwi team will surely play this match with 2 quality spin bowlers and Colin De Grandhome as and all rounder.
Australia also has good T20 all rounder like Glenn Maxwell and Mitchell Marsh. Trent Boult will try to swing the new ball and will be a danger for Australian openers. Australian team has strongly dominated over New Zealand team in T20 international. The team who win the match will ultimately win the series. Both captains Williamson and Finch will have to show good cricket for their team and will lead the team from the front. Australian team will play with 3 proper seam bowlers and Glenn Maxwell will bowl spin bowling for Australia but the team does not have a proper T20 spin bowler.
Probably Aaron Finch and David Warner will open the inning for Australia or the team can also give a chance to Chris Lynn. The Australian squad for this series will be announced after BBL 2020-21. Therefore it is very important for players to perform well to secure their place in Australian team against New Zealand series. There will be chance for new openers as lot of contenders are present in front of selecting committee.
