Australia has decent records against New Zealand in home conditions & will try their best to maintain the stats in the marquee event as well. They are marching into the T20 World Cup 2022 with a full-fledged squad. The addition of Cameron green as an all-rounder has provided more strength to the team.

New Zealand Preview
New Zealand recently played a T20I Tri-series against Pakistan & Bangladesh on their home ground & was the runner-up after losing the summit clash against Pakistan. They will aim to take revenge from Australia for the defeat they faced during the final of the T20 World Cup 2021.
Their batting line-up looks fragile as their key batter Daryl Mitchell will not feature in the Playing XI & will join the team for their second clash against Afghanistan. Guptill will be one of their biggest bet after scoring 592 runs in 20 innings & would prove a game-changer for New Zealand. Glenn Phillips & Williamson are the other batters to watch for in the Black Caps batting order. Overall their batting order looks settled & gives tough competition to Australia’s bowling order.
However, their bowling looks ineffective as their lead bowler Ish Sodhi failed to hit the mark with the ball. Tim Southee could scalp early wickets but might not get enough assistance from other bowlers.
