There will be a new T20 World Cup champion. The two T20 World Cup 2021 finalists are both teams that have never won this championship before, and someone will be crowned Champion for the first time.
New Zealand advanced to the T20 World Cup 2021 Final after defeating England (the top T20 team in the previous five years), while Australia advanced by defeating Pakistan (the best team of this World Cup). Both semi-final matches were high-scoring, thrilling affairs that came down to the wire.
It is now time for a rematch of the 2015 ODI World Cup Final between Australia and New Zealand. Will New Zealand be able to add the T20 title to its World Test Championship victory? Can Australia defy the critics who mocked its T20 team and add another global title to their collection?
The match will take place on November 14, 2021, at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium in Dubai.

New Zealand vs Australia Team Previews
Devon Conway, one of the players that made a significant difference for New Zealand in the Semi-Final, has been ruled out of the Final due to a hand injury. This is a significant blow for New Zealand, and Tim Seifert will almost certainly be included in this match.
Coming into this match, we had reservations about New Zealand’s batting. None of their players have scored more than 200 runs, their most successful batsman is a makeshift opener, Kane Williamson is struggling for runs, and the side lacks the depth that several other sides have.
Jimmy Neesham is the only batsman who has the ability to turn the course of a game in a matter of deliveries.
New Zealand’s batting is simply not good enough, and the wounds of being defeated by Australia in a number of high-profile matches will take their toll.
Bowling is clearly New Zealand’s strong suit. Trent Boult and Tim Southee will be hoping to make early inroads with the support of the rest of the bowlers. The opening matchup will be between Boult and Finch. If you back the left-handed seamer, you should bet on Boult to take a wicket or against Finch.
Overall, we believe New Zealand has overachieved and will be exposed in the final. It is a team that has played some excellent cricket, but it is not a great team.

Predicted XI: Martin Guptill, Daryl Mitchell, Kane Williamson (c), James Neesham, Devon Conway (wk), Glenn Phillips, Mitchell Santner, Adam Milne/Kyle Jamieson, Tim Southee, Ish Sodhi, Trent Boult
We honestly don’t think there is a team that Australia would have preferred to face in the T20 World Cup Final more than New Zealand. There’s something about New Zealand that Australia recognises, and they know they can beat them on most instances.
We’re all betting on Australia in the Final. We believe David Warner will record another huge score and will place a wager on the David Warner Total Score betting market. Mitchell Marsh is also a strong contender for the ‘To Hit A Six’ betting market, in our opinion.
Australia’s batting is just too strong for New Zealand, and the team has far too much experience to gamble against. When the Aussies are on a roll, they are difficult to stop, and it appears that they are peaking at the ideal time. Australia’s bowling assault is also outstanding.
Mitch Starc struggled in the Semi-Finals, while Pat Cummins was brilliant. Josh Hazelwood is another bowler who can come back strongly after a disappointing performance. Adam Zampa is one of the most underappreciated spinners in the game, and he is extremely difficult to score against.
We’d back him for 2+ wickets or even the Top Bowler Australia betting market.
The Australian squad has so much talent that we expect it to not just win but dominate this match and turn it into a one-sided affair.

New Zealand vs Australia Toss Prediction
The team that wins the coin toss will want to bowl first. The team that has chased has won 10 out of 11 matches played in Dubai at the T20 World Cup, including eight out of eight under lights. If you simply want to gamble on whichever team wins the toss, it is also a viable strategy!
Pitch and Weather Conditions
Dubai has been dishing out absolute belters of batting pitches, and we anticipate another hitting masterpiece for the T20 World Cup 2021 Final. The surface will have a great amount of pace and carry, allowing the batsmen to play freely. A score of roughly 170 is considered par, but teams batting first will likely aim for a minimum of 180 to feel secure.
Aaron Finch stated unequivocally that there is no dew in the area, so that myth has been debunked.
New Zealand vs Australia Match Prediction
We’re going to put money on Australia to win this game. New Zealand is a brave team that has consistently outperformed its peers. It will be difficult to equal Australia’s batting prowess and all-round ability to perform under pressure. When it comes to big games, no team elevates their game like the Australians.
Australia is the favourite to beat New Zealand at the odds of 1.62.
- Australia possesses a more diverse and potent batting lineup.
- Both teams have a strong bowling attack.
- Australia’s supremacy over New Zealand will undoubtedly play a role in this encounter as well.
