Toss: New Zealand opt to bowl vs Australia
Australia come into this T20 World Cup having lost just one match – and that was via a Super Over against India – since the start of January 2022 and 14 of those 18 matches were played away from home.
After their bronze-medal finish at the Commonwealth Games last year, New Zealand have been busy, with positive results coming into the World Cup. They downed West Indies 4-1, including a Super Over triumph at home, before blanking Bangladesh 3-0 in December.
