New Zealand take on Australia in the T20 World Cup final after almost a month of thrilling cricket across the UAE and Oman.

It promises to be a superb match with the Black Caps closing in on redemption after a gut-wrenching defeat to England in a Super Over in the ODI World Cup final two years ago.

Kane Williamson’s side secured revenge over England in the semi-finals, while Australia had too much firepower with the bat for Pakistan, both teams chasing down totals with an over to spare. Should New Zealand prevail, it will be another feather in the cap for Williamson, who captained his side to the inaugural ICC World Test Championship earlier this year against India.

The toss appears to be more crucial than ever in deciding the outcome of T20i matches, while four of the six finals to date have been won by chasing teams. Both teams showed cool heads to knock off their targets in the semi-finals with Daryl Mitchell guiding the Black Caps to victory over England and Matthew Wade’s explosive cameo to bash 41 off just 17 deliveries enough to put away Pakistan.

Here is everything you need to know about the match.

Team news

Devon Conway is out for the Black Caps after breaking his hand punching his bat in frustration during the semi-final. That means wicketkeeper Tim Seifert should step in, although allrounder Mark Chapman is another option with Glenn Phillips able to deputise behind the stumps.

Australia are expected to name an unchanged side.

Prediction

Like most of this tournament, the outcome here may come down to who wins the toss with both sides revelling in their roles as chasers in the semi-finals. We’ll lean towards Australia to get it done in a nail-biter with just enough ammunition with the ball to limit the Black Caps before using their swashbuckling batting line-up to reach the target.
