Updated - Nov 13, 2021 3:37 pm
New Zealand will take on arch-rivals Australia in the final of the T20 World Cup 2021 on Sunday. Kiwis have reached the final for the first time in T20 World Cup and will be dreaming of lifting the cup. With some phenomenal batting display from Daryl Mitchell, New Zealand defeated favourites England in the first semi-final. They will be aiming for their second major ICC title this year. Devon Conway has been ruled out of the final with a hand injury.
Australia, on the other hand, were not the favourites to reach the finals, but they proved everyone wrong with some stellar all-round performances. Despite losing 5 wickets in the run-chase against Pakistan, the duo of Marcus Stoinis and Matthew Wade earned the Aussies a 5-wicket victory to cement their spot in the finals. Both sides are aiming for their first T20 World Cup title and we can expect a cracker of a contest between them.

Top Picks – All-Rounders
Jimmy Neesham was the game-changer for New Zealand in the first semi-final against England. He scored quickfire 27 runs from 11 balls. He can be destructive at the death overs and has the ability to provide breakthroughs with the ball as well.

NZ vs AUS Risky Captaincy Choices:
Martin Guptill has notched up 180 runs in 6 matches in this World Cup at an average of 30. It’s worth a risk to pick him as your fantasy team skipper.
Glenn Maxwell hasn’t lived up to the expectations in this World Cup. He has scored only 36 runs in 6 matches so far at an average of 9, whereas with the ball he has picked up 2 wickets. That being said, we all know how dangerous he can be on his day. He is a risky captaincy pick for your fantasy teams.
Player you should avoid:
Mitchell Santner has been economical with the ball. However, he has scalped only 2 wickets in this World Cup. It’s better to avoid him while making your fantasy teams.
