A lot has changed over the last few days in New Zealand and with Auckland going into lockdown, the change will be visible in ongoing Australia's tour of New Zealand. Thankfully for the Kiwis, though, they are well and truly ahead in the series and will be looking to wrap it up with a win in the upcoming match.
The third match of the series is to be played at the Westpac Stadium, Wellington, on 3rd March 2021. Australia will be desperate on winning this one as another loss here will put the curtains down for them. They came close in the last match but would want to do better this time around. We expect yet another nail-biting contest on Monday.
Unlike the Aussies, the Kiwis have gone in with a full-strength squad and that seems to be paying rich dividends. They are 2-0 ahead in the series and will want to wrap the series up here at Wellington. With a solid win in the previous match, they'll be pumped and brimming with confidence.
Despite the fact that they are running high on confidence, it's not all rosy for the hosts. Even though Martin Guptill's return to form will be a big bonus, Tim Seifert's poor form will be a huge question mark for the Kiwis going forward. The difference between them and the Aussies has clearly been the experience between the two sides. Given how the likes of Boult, Southee, and Williamson have done, getting past the Kiwis will be a huge challenge.

Australia went into the series with a new-look side and that doesn't seem to have worked for the visitors so far. Their lack of experience was well and truly apparent in the first match as they couldn't even get close to New Zealand's total. They looked a lot better in the second match, but their usual problem of a fragile middle-order was highlighted once again.
Given by the way things have gone for them, Australia's major problem has been the period between the powerplay and the death. Australia have struggled to keep the momentum intact with the ball and they have struggled to contain the Kiwis with the ball in the middle-overs. Comparing the two sides, the Aussies have scored at around nine runs and overs and have in-turn conceded at a rate of 11.35 in the middle overs.
The major positive for the Aussies would be the knock that Marcus Stoinis played in the previous match. With Stoinis back in form, the Aussies will now have less reliance on Glenn Maxwell and that could work wonders for them. The other thing that would be concerning the Aussies will be the form of their bowlers. While the Aussie bowlers have been brilliant in the opening overs, they haven't had that sharpness in the middle or the death overs. Glenn Maxwell's form hasn't helped the Aussies either. In the two matches, he is averaging in single-digits and will need to get going for Australia to have an impact here. If Maxwell and the other experienced campaigners can get going, things will not be easy for the hosts.

Given the way the two sides have done, New Zealand will certainly have their noses ahead going into the next match. Having said that, the Aussies improved massively in the previous match and will be looking to go all the way this time around. Glenn Maxwell is due for a big one and with the motivation to do well, we think that Australia will finally find a win in the upcoming match.
