Weather Conditions

Brisbane is expected to have bright and sunny weather with no chances of rain on the match day. We expect the match to go ahead with no interruptions.  

Venue Details

Allan Border field is one of the good tracks in the Australian circuit where we can expect scores in the range of 160-170 runs. Batsmen will find it easier once they are set on this track. Bowlers must look to trouble the batters with the early movement from the pitch.

Toss: To Bowl

Australia won against New Zealand chasing the total in their last 4 matches and we expect both teams to field first if they win the toss.   

Winning Prediction

The terms form and momentum play a very little role in this game as both teams come into this match with no cricketing action in the last six months. Australia have been a dominant side in the t20 format for over the last 2-3 years and has a huge success over Kiwis in this format. New Zealand has played well in T20Is but has a poor head-to-head record against Aussies. We expect Australia to win this match owing to their unbelievable consistency in the last 2-3 years.   

Australia will win the match and start the series 1-0
