New Zealand vs Australia Final Australia beat New Zealand by 243 runs in 18.5 overs (T20 World Cup 2021 Final) This is the maximum score for dual teams.
The stage is set for the T20 World Cup 2021 Final. The final will be played in Dubai on November 14, with the New Zealand-New Zealand vs Australia Final. The two teams face off in the final after the 2015 ODI World Cup. This is why you can expect exciting fights from both teams. The dual teams entered the semifinals with four wins out of 5 at the Super-12 stage. It is interesting to note that both teams made it to the semifinals as the 2nd team in Group-1 and Group-2.
Both teams have now reached the finals of the Super 12. Thus, there is a possibility of a grand competition in the final tussle. New Zealand and Australia have faced 14 international T20 cricket matches in the past. New Zealand has won it only 5 times. That means Australia have the upper hand against the Kiwis with 9 wins. The two sides have only met once in the T20 World Cup, which New Zealand won.
If you look at the figures in the two teams’ showdown….
Highest team total: Australia hit a target of 243 in 18.5 overs (245 runs) by New Zealand on 16 February 2018. This is the maximum score for dual teams.
Minimum team total: New Zealand were all out for 106, chasing Australia’s 157-run target on 5 March 2021.
Highest individual score: New Zealand’s Brendon McCullum hit 116 off 56 balls in a T20 match in February 2010. But McCallum is not on the team right now. Thus it is not taken into consideration.
Best bowling statistic: Australia’s Ashton Agar 6/30 against New Zealand in March 2021 is the best bowling record of a double team encounter.
Top run scorer: New Zealand opener Martin Guptill has scored 435 runs at an average of 36.25 in 12 matches against Australia. This includes one century and two half centuries. Guptill is the top scorer in the dual team showdown. Thus Guptill is the force of the New Zealand team.
Top wicket taker: New Zealand spinner Ish Sodhi takes 16 wickets in T20 cricket against Australia. Thus Ish Sodhi is the game changer in the dual team showdown. Thus, in the final, Ish Sodhi will be the trump card of the New Zealand team.
Australia dominate the results of the match, but New Zealand players are ahead in the performance figures. Thus, dual teams can be equitable. Similarly, both teams are expected to compete at the Dubai International Stadium.
