Tip Summary

  • Both Australia and New Zealand are strong sides and are contenders for winning the T20 World Cup.
  • Australia are not in a good form as they lost their last T20I series against England by 2-0. 
  • New Zealand suffered a loss against Pakistan in the final of the Tri-series between New Zealand, Pakistan, and Bangladesh. 

Following the conclusion of the Qualifying round, New Zealand and Australia will be kick-starting the Super 12 round with an encounter against each other on Saturday. The two teams will play on October 22 at the Sydney Cricket Ground. Despite being the defending champions, Australia are not the favorite on Saturday.

The team has not enjoyed a good form in the shortest format of the game. Earlier this month, they lost their three-match T20I series against England by 2-0. The home defeat came to the Kangaroos due to their poor performance with the ball. The host lost their warm-up game as well against India. They ended up with only 180 runs while chasing 186 in 20 overs.

Speaking of New Zealand, they also succumbed to pressure in their warm-up match against South Africa. It was a disastrous batting performance by the Blackcaps as they collapsed by 98 runs. Meanwhile, they finished at the top of the table in the tri-series against Pakistan and Bangladesh. New Zealand lost only one game while winning three matches. However, the team lost the final to Pakistan by five wickets after failing to defend 163 runs.

  • Best Odds: 7.00 @ Indibet

No player can be better than Australia’s David Warner to bet your money on for the player of the match award. The opening batter has been a force to reckon with for the hosts in all the formats of the game. Playing against England, he smacked 77 runs in two games at an average of 38.50. Warner was the top run-scorer for Australia last year as they lifted the T20 cup in the UAE. In seven matches, he hammered 289 runs. The home conditions also give the batter an edge to do wonders on the field in the ICC tournament.

Top New Zealand batter: Devon Conway

  • Best Odds: 3.75 @ Dafabet

The 31-year-old Devon Conway has enjoyed great success in international cricket this year. The wicketkeeper-batter was the top run-getter for his team in the Tri-series against Pakistan and Bangladesh earlier this month. In five matches, he smacked 223 runs, including two fifties at an average of 77.67. Speaking about his overall T20I performance, Conway has collected 941 runs in 28 matches at an average of 52.28 and a strike rate of 134.24. Thus, the chances of the opening batter playing a match-defining knock to take his team home on Saturday are high.

Top wicket-taker of the match: Adam Zampa

  • Best Odds: 5.50 @ 10Cric

Adam Zampa is absolutely ruthless in the home conditions. The leg-spin bowler is likely to rattle the New Zealand batters at Sydney Cricket ground. He was the second-highest wicket-taker in the World Cup last year with 13 scalps in seven games at a stunning economy rate of 5.81. Also, the Blackcaps are not well versed to the spin as they often struggled when the ball turns.
