In NZ vs AUS today match prediction, lets bring out the strengths and weaknesses of both the sides.

Strengths

New Zealand (NZ)

  • The form of Devon Conway has been one of their biggest positives in the last few series. He is solid against all types of bowling and acts as a stabilizer as well.
  • Their new ball pair as expected is lethal to say the least. Tim Southee and Trent Boult made the lives of Australian batsmen miserable in the first game.

Australia (AUS)

  • They picked the right XI to some extent in the first match and one collective performance with the bat can see them winning this game.
  • Daniel Sams and Jhye Richardson were very good with the new ball in the powerplay.

Weaknesses

New Zealand (NZ)

  • Kyle Jamieson was pathetic in the previous game. He cannot be bowling with the new ball as they already have two solid options which takes out his strong zone.
  • Martin Guptill needs a big knock under his belt. Time is running out for him.

Australia (AUS)

  • They lack penetration in their bowling in middle overs and it goes without saying about death.
  • Aaron Finch has been in pathetic form in the T20s and need a miracle from him to turn things around.
