How to watch AUS vs NZ T20 World Cup match live

There are 2 ways to watch AUS vs NZ in the Men's T20 World Cup cricket tournament.

You can watch live and free on TV on Channel 9 or via 9Now, but they will be screening ads throughout the game.

If you watch via free-to-air TV, depending on where you live you might have to switch channels during the broadcast as Channel 9 will air its news during the game.

However, if you want to enjoy the game uninterrupted, live and ad-break-free during play, you'll need Fox Cricket.

That means you'll need a subscription to Kayo Sports, Foxtel iQ or Foxtel Now.

AUS vs NZ T20 Word Cup match preview

For Australia, a lot of the noise in the lead-up to the T20 World Cup has been about off-field incidents, such as David Warner's captaincy debate and Josh Inglis' freak golf accident.

But now the attention returns to the cricket pitch with AUS vs NZ.

Australia vs New Zealand T20 World Cup performance

Both sides had mixed fortunes in their respective World Cup warm-up matches.

Australia won only 3 of 8 warm-up matches vs India, England and the West Indies.

Meanwhile, New Zealand managed 3 victories from 6 matches against Pakistan, Bangladesh and South Africa.

Perhaps tellingly, only 1 of Australia's wins was against a side that automatically qualified for the Super 12 round in the tournament.

However, New Zealand had all their warm-up games against Super 12 sides.

The weather could play a part with rain predicted for the day, but if Australia can get their desired frontline XI on the pitch, we think they can chalk up the first win of their title defence.
