The 4th of the 5 match T20I bilateral series between New Zealand and Australia will be played on 5th March at Westpac Stadium, Wellington.
The match is scheduled to start at 7:00 PM local time (11:30 AM IST) and it will be streamed live on Fancode.
With 2 games yet to be played, the T20I series between Australia and New Zealand is perfectly poised at 2-1 in the favour of hosts. New Zealand won the first two matches, but Australia’s phenomenal performance in the last game has not only kept themselves alive, but has kept the series alive as well.
That win will certainly boost their confidence ahead of the fourth game. What will work in their favour is that some underperforming players have now found their forms back – Glenn Maxwell, Aaron Finch and also Ashton Agar. However, the Kiwis are also a very formidable unit, which sets up for an interesting.
