New Zealand vs Australia : CAN AUSTRALIA DODGE WHITEWASH? || 3rd T20I
New Zealand vs Australia 2021
3rd T20I – Wed, 3rd March
The Australians, with an avant-garde side, haven’t been in their aspects in this series. Down by 0-2, Aaron Finch and men have strived to come up with the ideal bowling feat.
While Jhye Richardson and Daniel Sams are amazed in bits, they will need more to prevent Devon Conway and Kane Williamson’s likes.
Plenty rides on the shoulders of skipper Aaron Finch, who is in the middle of his nastiest run of form. His job doesn’t get any simpler as captain and opener, with the Kiwis watching out for a series-clinching win on Wednesday.
Possible playing XI: Aaron Finch (C), Matt Wade (WK), Daniel Sams, Mitchell Marsh, Marcus Stoinis, Jhye Richardson, Adam Zampa, Josh Philippe, Glenn Maxwell, Kane Richardson, Riley Meredith.
New Zealand Dominant:
New Zealand also has a little worry, specifically their third speedster and the form of Glenn Phillips. Kyle Jamieson and Glenn Phillips haven’t hit the ground moving, which puts them in the hot seat against an Aussie squad attempting to exact revenge.
Possible playing XI: Martin Guptill, Tim Seifert (WK), James Neesham, Devon Conway, Glenn Phillips, Mitchell Santner, Tim Southee, Kane Williamson (C), Trent Boult, Ish Sodhi/Hamish Bennett, Kyle Jamieson.
The venue, Pitch Report, and Toss Prediction:
The third and final T20I between New Zealand and Australia will be played at Westpac Stadium in Wellington on 3rd March Wednesday.
Westpac Stadium should witness a high-scoring game on Wednesday. The ground’s sizes and the kind of wicket should play into the batsmen’s hands, causing little room for the bowlers’ mistake. There is minimal turn on offer for the spin bowlers, with the fast bowlers having to stick to off-pace deliveries and back-of-length bowls to get the best out of the pitch. Both sides would love to chase on this wicket, with anything over 175-185 being a competitive target at this venue.
Although both sides are equally complemented on paper, the Kiwis have momentum on their side. But Aaron Finch and his men are expected for a big performance, which could well be the situation in Wellington’s exciting match.
As expected, New Zealand, in their sizzling form, enter this game at the utter favourites with the odds of 1.76, while the Australians are at 2.00. Australia, who’s eyeing a comeback for redemption more than revenge, should come hard into the game from the very beginning.
Daniel Sams and Marcus Stoinis showed the potent and competence of what they possess in the 37 balls 92 run partnership. They brought victory home just before the collapse in the last over. Their stint upset the odds market completely. This could be the turning point for the Australian dressing room and can bring confidence in them. Although this match is technically a dead rubber with New Zealand having won the series, we will still be in for a cracking contest.
