New Zealand to win the game.
New Zealand will compete in their first T20I World Cup Final, having recently won the World Test Championship (2021) and lost the 2015 and 2019 World Cup Finals (ODI format). Australia has won five World Cups in the ODI format but has yet to win a trophy in the T20I format. In T20Is, Australia has a 9-5 win-loss record against New Zealand, having defeated them in the 2015 ODI World Cup final.

Daryl Mitchell, who struck 72 not out in the semi-final, is our pick for the highest run-scorer for New Zealand in this match. Tim Southee took 1-24 with the ball on Wednesday and has been outstanding throughout the tournament. We think he'll be New Zealand's leading wicket-taker versus Australia.
Australia's best scorer against Pakistan was David Warner, who had 49 points. We think he'll be Australia's leading run-scorer versus New Zealand. Adam Zampa has been Australia's most consistent bowler throughout the tournament and is a strong bet to take the most wickets in the final. Tim Southee has taken at least one wicket in each of the T20 World Cup games and is our selection for Player of the Match.
With Trans-Tasman rivals Australia and New Zealand qualifying for the finals, the ICC T20I World Cup has come to a close. Both teams advanced to the finals by defeating Super-10 leaders and favorites England and Pakistan in the semi-finals. Australia has yet to win a T20I World Cup and will be hoping to change that this year. After 2012, this is their second T20I World Cup final. New Zealand has been on a run in international events, reaching the finals of the previous three tournaments in all forms. They have never won a World Cup and have lost three finals in the past four competitions, dating back to 2015.

Daryl Mitchell, who scored 72 runs off 47 balls with four sixes and four boundaries, was essential in New Zealand's successful chase. With his 11-ball 27 runs, Jimmy Neesham reversed the game's momentum, and Devon Conway made 46 important runs but is unavailable for this match. In this vital encounter, Martin Guptill and Kane Williamson will try to make a major impact.
Tim Southee, Adam Milne, and Ish Sodhi were all economical throughout the encounter, each taking one wicket. Trent Boult had a bad day with the ball, but he's a seasoned veteran who understands how to get back on track in important games. Mitchell Santner, James Neesham, and Glenn Philips all contributed to the team's success.
After the early wicket to Aaron Finch, David Warner (49 runs) and Mitchell Marsh (28 runs) counter-attacked to hit 52 runs in the power play. They lost four wickets in short succession in the middle overs and were reduced to 96/5. To end the tight chase, Marcus Stoinis (40 runs) and Mathew Wade (41 runs) enjoyed an undefeated 81-run partnership.
Pat Cummins and Adam Zampa bowled brilliantly, denying the batters any easy runs and both taking a wicket. Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazelwood were both taken for a lot of runs in the death overs, combining to give up 87 runs in their 8 overs. With Marsh and Stoinis for the fifth bowler's quota, Glenn Maxwell will be ready.

New Zealand and Australia each have a strong playing XI, with nothing to choose between them. New Zealand will be without Devon Conway for this encounter and will continue to use a five-bowler approach. Despite fewer contributions from the big players, their batting line-up has produced significant chases. With seven solid batters and two clean hitters, Australia boasts a deep batting lineup. In important games, their fifth bowling option might be an issue. The side that wins the toss has a significant edge in the game. Read more at TheTopBookies.
