New Zealand vs Australia

The ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 is being played in Australia, and the next game is between New Zealand and Australia on 22nd October, in Sydney. This game would be a re-match of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021 Final, where they again face each other in a 6 pm AEDT fixture.

New Zealand has been in good form lately. They played well in a tri-series recently held in their own country against both Pakistan and Bangladesh. Their players performed well, especially the bowlers. 

Australia is not in the best of forms currently. With Pat Cummins named as the next ODI captain, it would be interesting to see how the players gel well with each other during the World Cup

 The Sydney Cricket Ground has been without a doubt one of the country’s finest grounds to play cricket. The pitch is quick and so is the outfield. One can expect the ball to move around during the initial phase of play, and then wear off slightly. 

The weather is not looking good, with showers and mild thunderstorms predicted for the game on Saturday. So, we just hope that there is nothing of that sort on Saturday, enabling us to enjoy a good game of cricket.
