PredictionWin Prediction



New Zealand will be up against Australia in the 3rd T20I of the Australia tour of New Zealand at Eden Park in Auckland on February 25. Australia has bossed the proceedings so far with two wins in a row and they have already won this series. They would be looking for another win and a clean sweep of the Kiwis.
The last game between the two sides which was the first game of the series was held at the same venue where New Zealand won the toss and elected to bowl. With a new opening pair, Australia started explosively as Head went berserk. The second partnership was probably the best one after Smith was sent back by Ferguson. However, once the partnership broke, they kept losing wickets regularly and were not able to form partnerships. After Head’s 45, Cummins’ 28 came in handy as they were bowled out for 174.
A good total awaited the New Zealand team but due to an unfortunate incident Devon Conway got hurt during the match and had to be kept absent hurt. This was a big blow to the Kiwis as they struggled to keep going. Their entire top-order could have scores in single digits only but it was Glenn Phillips who came to bat at four and anchored the innings for a while. He did not receive much help from the other end as batters kept coming and going away. Within no time, the New Zealand team was bowled out for 102 losing the game by 72 runs.
