After successfully clinching the ODI series, Team Australia will take on New Zealand in the third and final ODI match of the series to be played at Cazaly's Stadium, Cairns on September 11 (Sunday).

To note, it will be skipper Aaron Finch's last assignment in the ODI format as the right-handed batter has decided to retire from the format. The Kiwi side, on the other hand, will try to win at least one match in the series and save themselves from a whitewash. 

Match Details:

Venue: Cazaly's Stadium, Cairns

Date & Time: September 11, 09:50 AM IST

Live Broadcast & Streaming: SonyLiv & Sony Six

Pitch Report:

The wicket at Cazaly's Stadium has been very tough for batting and a similar wicket might be expected for the final match as well. The skipper winning the toss might want to have a bowl first and chase the total later on. 

Probable Playing XIs:


Aaron Finch (c), Steven Smith, Marnus Labuschagne, Cameron Green, Alex Carey (wk), Glenn Maxwell, Sean Abbott, Nathan Ellis, Mitchell Starc, Adam Zampa, Josh Hazlewood.

New Zealand:

Martin Guptill, Devon Conway, Kane Williamson (c), Tom Latham (wk), Daryl Mitchell, Glenn Phillips, James Neesham, Mitchell Santner, Tim Southee, Lockie Ferguson, Trent Boult.

Probable Top Performers:

Probable best batter of the match:

Steve Smith:

When others were struggling to even stay at the crease, star batter Steve Smith stroked an excellent fifty in the second ODI match and bailed out his team from a tricky situation. The right-handed batter is expected to play a crucial role in the last ODI as well.

Probable best bowler of the match:

Trent Boult:

Kiwi pacer Trent Boult ran through the Australian batting order during the second ODI encounter as the left-arm pacer scalped a total of four wickets for his side. Boult will be looking to emulate his form in the third match as well.
