Aggressive Australia or cold-headed New Zealand!

Australia New Zealand
Australia and New Zealand are two neighboring countries on the shores of the Tasman Sea. Although people from nearby areas there are quite different in character.

Australians, in particular, want to show their dominance on the field, with aggressive body language and aggressive cricket. The New Zealand tone is cold.

Aussies want to suppress the opponent with body language as well as cricketing skills, Kiwis are humble in everything. The T20 World Cup final will be fought in two different genres of cricket.

Australia-New Zealand faces off in the title race at the Dubai International Stadium on Sunday after nearly a month of fighting. Judging by the recent form before the start of the World Cup, the betting rate was not so high.

Both teams lost one match in the group stage. Interestingly, there is a similarity between the two opposite. New Zealand lost their first match to Pakistan. Australia has reached the final by defeating Pakistan. Again, Australia lost to England in their group stage match. New Zealand entered the final by beating England.

The mission is to show the fullness of the excellence of the shortest event for Australia, the four-time champions of the ODI World Cup. The challenge for New Zealand is to win the first-ever ICC title in a colorful outfit. Earlier, the two teams met in the final of the 2015 ODI World Cup. Australia won the one-sided fight of that match.

This time before the World Cup, Australia lost four T20 series. Before the World Cup, New Zealand lost the series by playing a completely different team in Bangladesh.

The openers of both teams are on the run. Someone from Martin Guptill-Darrell Mitchell is performing in one of the matches. David Warner and Aaron Finch, on the other hand. However, the Kiwis seem to be sharpened in the pace attack. Australia's Mitchell Starc is in rhythm but the best is not available from the rest.

Meanwhile, the Kiwis' top two pacers Trent Bolt and Tim Southee continue to put pressure on the opposition by bowling at the lowest economy rate in bowling throughout the tournament. One of the two leg-spinners Adam Jampa and Ish Sodhi could be the ones to decide the outcome. Both have been seen performing in important matches.

However, the Kiwis are slightly ahead of Australia in the second spinner option. They are playing Mitchell Santner regularly, he is also working to stop the run. On the other hand, Finch's team is continuing to work with Glenn Maxwell's off-spin without keeping Aston Agar in the XI.

New Zealand could have been clearly ahead in the middle order if Devon Conway's injury had not happened. Tim Seifert can play in his place.

Captain Kane Williamson is handling the situation at crucial times.

"We play a lot of matches against each other. Both teams are very excited about the final," Williamson said.

"They have world-class bowlers like Adam Zampa. He is one of the best in the world. There are some of the best pacers in the world. The team will have many match-winners."

Finch fears the combined power of New Zealand instead of many of their own match winners.

"I think New Zealand have reached the final in all six of the last six ICC events (except the 2016 Twenty20 World Cup). There is no chance of taking them lightly. They have great batsmen," he said.
