T20 World Cup final New Zealand vs Australia
Published: Sunday, 14th November 2021 at 11:30 am

It all comes down to this: New Zealand v Australia, one trophy, and one match left to win.


Both sides finished second in their respective Super 12 groups, but overcame strong opposition in the semi-finals to reach the showpiece game of the tournament.

New Zealand looked down and out with 57 runs to chase in just four overs against tournament favourites England, but heroics from Jimmy Neesham saw them remarkably hit the 167 target with an over to spare.

It was a similar story for Australia one day later as they chased down 177 thanks to Matthew Wade's 41 runs from 17 balls including a hat-trick of sixes to end the contest.

The big news heading into the match is that New Zealand batsman Devon Conway – who produced a sensational display against England – broke his hand punching his bat in frustration after being stumped by Jos Buttler. He will miss the final.

New Zealand vs Australia prediction

The well-oiled machine that is New Zealand certainly have enough to take this one. Kane Williamson's men feel like the safest bet, as Australia have shown in this tournament that they can be a boom or bust side.

Would we say that to Steve Smith's face? Absolutely not. In Smith, David Warner and superman Wade, the boast 'playmakers' throughout the side capable of blowing away any opponent in their path.

That feels like the decision here. Slick, consistent operators or explosive match-winners. It's anyone's call. Ordinarily we'd have leaned in New Zealand's favour, but Conway's injury absence may just tip the scales in the other direction.

Our prediction: Australia win
