NZ vs AUS Match & Analysis

While the ongoing series may not be of as high importance as matches that the two teams will play later in the year, the fifth T20I will play a good role in preparing to help the two sides to get acquainted with the pressure that comes with high-voltage games. With Australia winning the last two matches, all eyes will be on the series-decider, which will be played at Westpac Stadium, Wellington on Sunday 7th March 2021.

NZ vs AUS Team Previews

New Zealand

Considering how New Zealand played in the first two matches of the series, it wouldn't be wrong to say that they took a couple of steps backward, at least with the bat. Apparently, the sudden lockdown in New Zealand didn't help the players as the bio-bubble got even tighter. With not many players available inside the bubble, there isn't a scope for many changes and New Zealand may very well go in with the same side.

As was the case in the last couple of matches, spinners could play a massive role and New Zealand might be looking to buff up on their spinning strength. The major disappointment for the Kiwis in the series so far has been the form of Tim Seifert, who hasn't gotten any runs despite having a terrific run in the preceding Super Smash. He will be under tremendous pressure to perform in the upcoming match.

We saw surface getting trickier in the last match and someone like Kane Williamson will have a massive role to play. He has blown hot and cold in the series, but would want to end it with a captain's knock. Also, Williamson's bowling might come into the picture as well.

On paper, New Zealand are an immaculately balanced side and this is the same reason for which they won the first two matches of the series. They have all ingredients required to be successful in the shortest format of the game and if they get their execution right, dealing with them is going to be difficult.

Australia

Just when Aaron Finch was discarded by many across the globe, he announced himself back with not only a terrific knock but also terrific captaincy. Australia are known to push back hard when pressed against the wall and that is exactly what they showcased in this so far. Australia do not have any international commitments for a long time after this series and they'd want to register a win before heading back home.

It's been a story of two halves for the Aussies in the series so far. They were terrible in the first two matches, but turn things around beautifully when it mattered the most. Glenn Maxwell, Adam Zampa, and Ashton Agar all played decisive roles respectively in the series matches, and with surface likely to assist spinners, they'll be once again in contention.

Australia had several question marks about their middle order when they came to New Zealand and just when it appeared that the inexperience in middle-order will be a weakening factor, the middle-order actually proved to be the difference between the two sides, at least in the last two matches. On paper, the Aussies have a solid team and the presence of three spinners is certainly going to help their cause. They are going to be a difficult side to deal with on this super Sunday.

NZ vs AUS Betting Tips

After the first two matches, the series seemed to be going one-way. It was anticipated to be a close series and the last two matches brought the series back to life. Two series are equally matched, at least on paper, and are likely to produce yet another scintillating contest. While the two teams are matched on paper, the momentum that the Aussies have will add to their advantage. For that reason, betting on an Australian win should be the way to go.
