AUS vs NZ: Match Preview:


After the completion of Round 1 matches, the T-20 World Cup 2022 enters into its main phase and now it's time for the Super 12 matches.

The first match of the Super 12 stage will be a rematch of last year's World Cup final as two neighboring countries' reigning champion Australia will take on New Zealand at Sydney Cricket Stadium on Saturday, October 22.

In the warm-up match, Australia had to face a defeat at the hands of India by 6 runs. In the match skipper, Finch hitched Aussie batting and scored a well-deserved 76 runs off 54 balls. Mitch Marsh who scored quick fire 35 in 18 balls is in form.

Apart from them, Australia has immense firepower like flamboyant David Warner, Young Tim David, keeper Matthew Wade, Maxwell, Stoinis, and recently included Cameron Green. 

Aussies have some experienced campaigners in their bowling department as well. Jos Hazlewood will be their go-to bowler who is also the top Aussie wicket-taker in 2022 with 21 scalps in 13 matches and Richardson is at second with 14 dismissals in 08 matches. 

Apart from them, Australia has spearhead Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins, and Adam Zampa who will be responsible for pushing their opponents back.

New Zealand on the other hand, has recently faced a loss against Pakistan in the Tri-Nation series. Overall this year Kane Williamson's side has performed well. 

In 2022, the Kiwis appeared in 16 T20Is out of which they won 12 matches, lost 3 and one was abandoned. In the warm-up game against South Africa, the team wasn't able to put themselves up and faced a 9-wicket loss.

This year, Glenn Phillips has been the top scorer for the Blackcaps with 449 runs in 14 innings at a strike rate of 153. Conway is looking in fine form with 339 runs in 8 innings this year. Finn Allen (313 runs in 12 innings) has scored the third-highest number of runs for the team.
