NZ vs AUS Dream11 Prediction: It was a phenomenal display of character by the Blackcaps who have started the 5-match series with an emphatic victory of 53 runs over Australia. Devon Conway’s imperious show continued as he hit his 3rd consecutive 90+ score to take his team across the line with relative ease.
On the other hand, the visitors who are playing with their star BBL performers didn’t look comfortable at all in the opening fixture. They looked perplexed and searching for answers to every challenge the Blackcaps threw before them. The Aaron Finch led side looks in complete disarray and it would be interesting to see how they respond after a crushing defeat.

NZ Playing 11 (probable):
Injury update, unavailability: The visitors also don’t have any injury concerns in their ranks. All players are fit to feature.
Expected changes and team combination: They looked baffled in the last game and need to bounce back strongly. Talking about the changes, there’s very little chance of changes in the eleven despite a loss in the last game. However, shuffling in the batting order could take place. There could be a possibility of Josh Phillipe opening the innings alongside Finch.
AUS Playing 11 (probable):
The Blackcaps have made a blistering start to the series and are looking settled for yet another win. Therefore, we are again backing New Zealand to register a win in this NZ vs AUS Today Match Prediction fixture and go 2-0 up in the series.
Devon Conway: The superstar with the bat in the last game, the left-hander is in a phenomenal touch with the bat scoring 5 fifties in his last 5 games which include three scores in excess of 90. He is a prime pick for captain/vice-captain.
Tim Seifert: The Blackcaps swashbuckling opener missed out in the last game but is a fantastic player to rely upon. From his last 7 innings, he has managed 212 runs at a fabulous average of 51.25.
Kane Williamson: The Blackcaps skipper got 12 runs in the last game, but has been in brilliant form of late. He has scored 230 runs in his last 6 innings striking over 130.
Glenn Maxwell: The Big Show was a Flop Show in the opening fixture, but his talent and credentials speak a lot. He was in a decent nick in the BBL and would want to show at least a glimpse of it here. He has scored 79 runs from the last 4 T20I innings.
Tim Southee: Southee was brilliant in the last game giving away only 10 runs and scalping 2 wickets from his quota of 4 overs. He has now taken 8 scalps in his last three T20I appearances.
