On Friday, New Zealand will play Australia in the fourth T20I match of the five-match tournament. Despite losing the third T20I against Australia, they still have a 2-1 lead. Their decision to bowl first in the final game cost them the opportunity to win the series. New Zealand was riding high after two straight victories, but Glenn Maxwell’s heroics ended their winning streak.
On the other hand, Australia staged a remarkable comeback to win the last T20I by 64 runs. They came close to winning the second T20I but were unable to maintain their composure. Glenn Maxwell’s blistering 31-ball 70 and later Ashton Agar’s 6-for-30 sealed the game for them in the previous match. They need one more win here to advance to the fifth and final T20I, which will be played on March 7th.
The sky during the evening will be clear, the temperature will be around 18 degrees Celsius, and the humidity will be about 60%. No rain is expected in this game.
Westpac Stadium will host another high-scoring match. Although the ball should be easy to bat, the bowlers should get some extra bounce and movement off the surface.
With 180 being the average at this venue, having your wickets in hand will be crucial. With the pitch not changing much during the game, both teams will chase after winning the toss.
