Both sides came to the final clash from the second spot of their groups and defeated the favourites in the semifinals. New Zealand overcame England, making the main impact in the last ten overs of the game, which seemed to be lost. Australia’s batter Wade made a difference in the last overs to grab the needed number of runs in quite a similar fashion. There is no doubt that both teams are strong enough and deserve the title. They passed a tough Super 12 stage and showed a great passion in the semifinals. In terms of the recent shape, they are also in quite similar conditions.

The historical background speaks in favour of the Australian squad. They won more matches in the last few years, but let’s look more attentive. The last four clashes in the T20 format finished 2-2, and both were played at the beginning of 2021. The other games between the opponents don’t have any practical sense.
Nonetheless, bookmakers set the Australian cricket team as a favourite here. It forces us to think about betting on the “underdog” New Zealand as such a risk will be logical. However, we also recommend looking at the total over pick as both sides were more persuasive in batting than in bowling, which should lead to more runs.
