Australia vs New Zealand- Previews and Betting Tips
The defending T20 world champions are all set to take center stage against rivals New Zealand on their home turf. Playing in their home country will certainly boost a lot of confidence in the Aussies.
Australia has played as many as three T20I series in the past couple of months. They lost two of them, one against India and the other against England. However, they managed to win one against the men from the Caribbean and made it 1 out of 3. Before kickstarting their campaign, they faced the No.1 T20 side India and lost to them by 6 runs in a warm-up game. The skipper Aaron Finch seemed to be in solid form as he scored a fantastic 54-ball 76. With the ball, Kane Richardson rose to the occasion with his 4/30, but it wasn’t enough to restrict India.
On the other hand, New Zealand recently played a one-off twenty20 tri-series competition alongside Bangladesh & Pakistan. They did well to reach the finals but succumbed to the likes of Pakistan and handed over the trophy to their counterparts. They also didn’t have much luck in their first warm-up game against the Proteas. The spin-twin duo of Keshav Maharaj & Tabraiz Shamsi bamboozled New Zealand as they were bowled out for a mere 98. Ish Sodhi emerged as the only wicket-taker as South Africa won the match by 9 wickets and 52 balls to spare. Martin Guptill top scored with his gritty 26.
New Zealand will need a lot of hard work as their recent form against Australia hasn’t been the best. In the past five matches, Australia has won the recent four matches. We predict Australia will win today's t20 world cup match. We advise all the betters to do your research for an exhilarating encounter like this. With a new venue comes new information. Hence, track all the weather and pitch updates as they are highly influential to a game. Try to bet during match hours, as any momentum shift in the game is awarded big match odds.

The Aussies have an exceptionally well-balanced squad that has both batting & bowling on offer. Here are some players to look out for in the upcoming fixture.

Alongside him is Matthew wade, scoring 214 runs in 10 matches. Josh Hazlewood & Pat Cummins have control of the bowling department, who have 9 and 8 wickets, respectively, with a healthy economy rate. In addition, Glenn Maxwell and Cameron Green will prove to be the trump cards for Australia in tense situations.

The Kiwis have had no luck against the Aussies in their past few meetings. However, they would be looking to level scores, especially after losing to the hosts in last year’s T20 World cup finals. The Kiwis have a good batting line-up, with Devon Conway and Glenn Phillips backing them up. The duo had 339 and 278 runs in their recent matches with phenomenal batting averages. As for bowlers, Michael Bracewell & Tim Southee will be the ones the Aussies will have to be careful with. They have bagged 13 and 11 scalps in their past 8 games. The icing on the cake for them is Trent Boult, who has been proven very lethal in the past.
