Who will win Australia vs New Zealand?
New Zealand lost their opening match of the T20 World Cup to Pakistan but have won every game since, including victories against tournament favourites India and England.
Australia have also only lost the 1 match, which was in the group stages when they were flogged by England.
Across 50-over and 20-over World Cups, Australia and New Zealand have met 12 times with Australia holding an 8-4 advantage. Only 1 of those meetings has been in the T20 format though, with New Zealand winning that clash in 2016.
The batting power of Daryl Mitchell, Martin Guptill, Kane Williamson and James Neesham facing off against the strength of David Warner, Aaron Finch, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis and Matthew Wade means this should be an electric contest.
Adam Zampa could hold the key, with 13 wickets and an economy rate of just 5.49 he has been consistent and damaging right throughout the tournament.
Both sides have the firepower, the class and the experience to handle the occasion. For New Zealand it is a chance for the first piece of silverware after years of toil that has included 10 semi-finals and now 3 finals.
We think it might be their day.
