New Zealand v Australia Preview:
The 5th of the 5-match T20I bilateral series between New Zealand and Australia will be played on 7th March at Westpac Stadium, Wellington.
New Zealand and Australia are locking horns once against each other for the final T20I of the five-match series. It has been a highly competitive series with top-quality cricket being played by both the teams. The blackcaps must be disappointed as they failed to wrap up the series after winning the first two matches. Their batting has been the ultimate reason behind them being unable to seal the series in Wellington. Provided that they can bat well, New Zealand will have a great chance of winning this game.
On the other side, Australia rose from its ruins. They were 2-0 behind before coming into the Westpac Stadium and defeated the host in the next two games, which is a remarkable effort. Aaron Finch delivered when the team needed him the most, followed by an unbelievable bowling effort. However, they should not underestimate the Kiwis, as they are always formidable in their home ground.
Pitch report & Weather report:
The condition of the pitch changed massively within one inning in the first game at this venue. However, it was a high scoring game in the third T20I but it was totally a different ball game in the fourth T20I. Batsmen found it difficult to connect the balls well and struggled to make runs throughout the match. The team winning the toss should bat first.
The weather conditions aren’t that promising for a cricket match. There is a very high chance of a shower during the afternoon in Wellington. However, the conditions will be the same with the temperature being around 19 Degree Celsius.
Kane Richardson has played a key role for Australia in the death overs. He has picked up 4 wickets during the 16-20 overs in this series. He can be a very smart budget pick in just 8.5 Cr.
Australia are expected to win this match.
