NZ vs AUS Dream11 Prediction | 4th T20I | Australia tour of New Zealand, 2021

New Zealand and Australia will play against each other in the 4th T20I match at Westpac Stadium, Wellington. We will cover NZ vs AUS Dream11 Prediction, match preview, and Fantasy Cricket Tips.

New Zealand: 

New Zealand, after two consecutive wins, lost the third match in the series. After such good performances, they faced a defeat in the last game by a significant margin of 64 runs.

Martin Guptill is back to form as he has scoring runs from the top consistently in the last two matches. Tim Seifert has been struggling a lot in this series and hasn’t scored more than ten runs in any games. Kane Williamson, after scoring a fifty, got out early in the last match.

In the middle-order, Devon Conway has been batting well and played decently in the last match. Glenn Phillips is yet to play a big inning this series. Jimmy Neesham, after a destructive inning in the second match, got out for a duck.

The bowling unit was completely out of rhythm in the last match as they went for many runs. They started well by picking up an early wicket, but they never got a chance to make a comeback after that. They picked up some wickets, but that did not stop the opposition from scoring runs. 

Ish Sodhi has been the consistent wicket-taker for NZ in this series and picked up two wickets in the last match. The experienced duo Southee and Boult managed to pick up one wicket each.

New Zealand would not want this performance to affect them in the other matches and would hope to win the next game and seal the series.

Australia:

Australia finally managed to win a match in this series and saved the series from slipping away. They performed brilliantly and won the game comfortably by 64 runs.

Skipper Aaron Finch after his struggle in the Big Bash and also the initial matches managed to score a brilliant fifty in the last game. Matthew Wade got out early in the previous game, and at No.3, Josh Philippe once again missed his half-century by 7 runs.

After two consecutive failures, Maxwell batted brilliantly and smashed 5 sixes and eight boundaries. Stoinis has also performed well so far in this series, and Mitchell Marsh has scored a decent amount of runs. Daniel Sams was also handy with the bat in the second match.

The bowling department finally performed brilliantly and got the opposition all out for just 144 runs. Jhye Richardson, who was their consistent wicket-taker in this series, went wicketless in the last match. Ashton Agar bowled exceptionally well in the previous game picking up 6 wickets, and Meredith also bowled well, picking up 2 wickets.

Australia would hope to continue their winning momentum and win the next two matches and clinch the series from the Kiwis’ hands.
