T20 World Cup: Australia, New Zealand To Face Each Other In Final Today

DUBAI: Australia and New Zealand will clash today (Sunday) in the final of the ICC’s Twenty20 World Cup at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium to lift the trophy for the first time.

The match will begin at 7pm PST.

The tournament showcasing cricket’s shortest format will witness a new winner in Dubai on Sunday after a clash between two teams that were not among the pre-competition favourites.

Australia made the semi-finals as the second-placed team behind England from their group but went on to beat Pakistan with a powerful performance in Thursday’s semi-final.

New Zealand have been the team to beat in recent times after they ended up runners-up in the 2019 50-over World Cup and clinched the inaugural Test championship in June this year.

Both New Zealand and Australia have never won a T20 World Cup and the Kiwis will be playing in their first ever final in the tournament.

New Zealand have depended on their new-ball attack of Tim Southee and Trent Boult to unsettle opponents in the tournament.
