T20 World Cup Final: New Zealand v Australia Preview

This is a big opportunity for Australia to become T20 World Cup champions for the first time against a New Zealand side who have never made it this far in the tournament. The odds appear to be in favour of Australia, who had to beat Pakistan in the semi-finals to qualify for this match. However, not that sporting maths like this ever accounts for much, New Zealand did beat England in their semi-final by five wickets. What makes that significant is that England, during the early stages of the tournament, put away Australia by eight wickets, so there is certainly an air of confidence in the Kiwi camp.

T20 World Cup Final: New Zealand v Australia Odds

It would seem that Australia are good value for their favourites tag, where they are priced at odds of 5/9 to win the tournament. It’s 13/10 for a New Zealand victory.

T20 World Cup Final: New Zealand v Australia Betting Tips

Over the years, these sides have squared off 14 times in T20 Internationals, with one game not coming up with a winner. Australia have won nine of those meetings, while New Zealand took four. We’re going to back a New Zealand victory given the two-horse race nature of the market, and we also are supporting a bet on Kane Stuart Williamson to be New Zealand’s top batsman.

New Zealand to win 13/10

They don’t have a great history in this fixture, and we’d imagine they’ll be in for a very tough test, but they’ve beaten teams who’ve beaten Australia in this very tournament, so we’re backing New Zealand to get the job done and double your money.

Kane Williamson to be home team’s top batsman – 11/4

Honestly, if you wanted to put some money on both Williamson and Martin Guptill, that would be the smart move as their prices are the same, and at almost 3/1 you’d make money either way if either of the high-level batsmen win this market..


New Zealand Squad

Kane Williamson (captain), Tom Blundell (wicketkeeper), Devon Conway, Henry Nicholls, Kyle Jamieson, Tom Latham, Ajaz Patel, Glenn Phillips, Rachin Ravindra, Mitchell Santner, Will Somerville, Tim Southee, Ross Taylor, Neil Wagner and Will Young
