Kane Williamson’s New Zealand takes on the Aaron Finch-led Australia in the final of the T20 World Cup 2021 on Sunday.
The match will be played at the Dubai International Stadium.
The two teams have met only once earlier in the T20 WC — On March 18, 2016, New Zealand beat Australia by eight runs at Dharamsala.
However, AUS will be confident going into Sunday’s match owing to its three-wicket victory over the Black Caps in a warm-up game ahead of this tournament. In all Twenty20 international games combined as well, the Aussies enjoy an advantage with a 9:5 win ratio.
